When a poker player allows their emotions to cloud their judgment during a hand, and they are not able to play their normal game, it’s called going on “tilt” or “tilting”. Often, this tends to happen after a bad beat or consecutive bad beats, and as a result the player tilt shoves or bluffs at the wrong time.

EXAMPLE “A titled donkey on my table was going all-in every hand after getting his aces cracked.”

Watch Phil Hellmuth a.k.a. the “Poker Brat” tilting and ranting against Cristian Dragomir at the 2008 WSOP ME.
