Am I on Tilt?

      I've noticed that when I'm playing continuous games online that I can't shake the emotional state from my last game off.

      Example: I won a tournament today and played a blinder. I played tighter than a virgin's crack until I was head's up when I played very loose - not reckless, just very loose. I was winning almost every hand.

      I started the next game and was on such a high, that I forgot to slow my game down a few dozen gears and began making reckless mistakes, because I thought I was unbeatable.

      Is this called going on Tilt? I don't seem to suffer it through losing streaks, but when I win my ego expands at a ridiculous rate. What can I do to come back down to Earth?
