Full Tilt Poker-Positive Tilting

Share this
TILT: verb
Look it up in the dictionary and you will find these definitions:
1. To cause to lean, incline, slope, or slant.
2. To rush, strike at or charge, as in a joust.
3. To hold poised for attack, as with a lance or the like.
4. To engage in a joust, tournament, or similar contest.

In the world of poker, the word TILT has suffered a bad rap. How often have we heard "He/She is on Tilt," while sitting at a table? We all know what this means. The player is off kilter, ramming, jamming and throwing away their chips. Many times "going on tilt" happens after a bad beat or getting A-A cracked by 7-2 off suit. So, in the poker world, going on tilt is usually bad (for your bankroll) but can be very good for your opponents' chip stacks. Causing someone to "tilt" can also be a big plus at the table.

While poker players think of "Tilt" in a negative way, the actual definitions of "Tilt" correlate to poker in a very positive way. Take the second and third definition for example. A Player may rush or charge at a pot by being skillfully aggressive. They strike at the right moment, catching their opponents off guard, like with a check-raise. Both are positive moves in poker, skills to be envied and emulated.

Number four is obvious, "To engage in a tournament or similar contest".

Poker Tournaments are hugely popular with thousands being held every day both online and in B & M poker rooms. Just one nice tournament win can change your life forever, and make you an instant household name. Using positive "tilting" skills in a Tournament could make the difference between a huge payday or busting out on the bubble.

So, the next time you hear the word "Tilt" think of the positive, like in Full Tilt Poker.
