In Advance of a Tilt

[ English ]

Ah, the tilt. If a poker player claims never to have peered over the shadow of a looming poker tilt – they’re either telling a lie or they have not been playing long enough.

He sucked you out on the river? – Well hold it right here. This is a classic opportunity for a fresh bettor to begin tilting. They just blew too much $$$$ on one hand that they should have won and they’re agitated
