When will you stop tilting? Poker and profit would be much more harmonious terms if only you could stop spewing chips unnecessarily. You spend so much time studying and preparing, prepping and discussing, reviewing and rigorously strengthening your poker skills to crush the competition.

All the while, you are left watching in horror and amazement, wondering why you just made a play which you knew was definitely wrong. This phenomenon is all too real, all too common, and yet many poker players do not understand the underlying physiological mechanisms driving this behaviour.
