In Advance of a Tilt

Ah, the steam. If a poker enthusiast claims at no time to have peered down the barrel of a looming tilt – they are either telling a lie or they haven’t been competing very long. This doesn’t mean of course that everyone has gone on tilt in the past, a few players have wonderful control and carry their squanderings as a hit and leave it at that.
