Before you Tilt

Ah, the tilt. If a poker enthusiast states never to have peered down the shadow of an upcoming poker steam – they are either telling a lie or they haven’t been gambling long enough. This does not imply obviously that everyone has been on steam in the past, a number of players have wonderful willpower and take their losses as a hit and keep it at that.
