Ah, the tilt. If a poker enthusiast claims never to have peered down the shadow of an approaching poker tilt – they’re either telling a lie or they have not been competing long enough. This doesn’t infer of course that each and every one has gone on tilt in the past, a handful of players have excellent control and take their losses as a hit and keep it at that. To be a powerful poker player, it is especially crucial to appraise your successes and your losses in the same way – with no emotion.
