A player who is on "tilt" is one who has let their emotions effect them during a poker game. This usually happens after a player has lost a lot of chips in a hand. Being on tilt often effects the player's game negatively.

e.g "Daniel just lost $600 in that hand and is still muttering words to himself. He is on tilt!"
