What Does It Mean in Poker?

Tilting means becoming upset or frustrated after losing a hand or hands.

This typically results in wild, reckless play involving playing too many hands and bluffing too much. Also known as steam/steaming. “I just lost most of my stack on a bad beat and now I’m on tilt.”
