Before you Tilt

Ah, the poker steam. If a poker enthusiast states never to have looked over the barrel of a looming steam – they’re either telling a lie or they have not been wagering for a long time. This doesn’t mean of course that everyone has been on steam before, a number of people have awesome control and carry their losses as a hit and leave it at that.

He banged you out on the river? – Well hold it right there. This is a quintessential opportunity for a fresh bettor to begin tilting.
