In Advance of a Tilt

Ah, the steam. If a poker gambler claims at no time to have peered down the shadow of an approaching poker tilt – they are either lying or they haven’t been gambling long enough. This does not imply of course that every poker player has gone on steam in the past, a number of players have great control and take their squanderings as a loss and leave it at that.
