Ah, the steam. If a poker gambler states at no time to have peered down the barrel of an approaching poker tilt – they are either telling a lie or they have not been playing very long. This does not mean of course that every player has gone on tilt in the past, a handful of people have excellent willpower and carry their squanderings as a hit and keep it at that. To be a powerful poker player, it is especially important to approach your successes and your losses in an identical manner – with no emotion.

You have squandered eighty dollars in a hand where you should have picked up $200two hundred dollars when you went all-in on the flop and held a 10 – 1 edge. And that guy! He bled you dry on the river? – Well stop right there. This is a classic choice for a new player to begin tilting. They basically blew too much $$$$ on one round that they really should have won and they are agitated
