Ah, the steam. If a poker gambler states never to have stared faced down the shadow of a looming poker steam – they are either telling a lie or they have not been betting very long. This doesn’t imply obviously that each and every one has gone on tilt before, a number of players have wonderful control and take their squanderings as a hit and leave it at that.
