    • Eddie: You know what it feels like. Everything's going your way. You can't make a wrong decision if you try. You bet pass, the shooter rolls a seven. You stand firm on 12, the dealer busts out with a face card. At the hold 'em table, you start every hand with big slick. And then... it happens. Your wife calls on the cell phone with a problem at home. The waitress spills a drink on you. Suddenly, the world shifts, anger overtakes you. Confusion, pain, you can't think straight. You call when you should raise, you bet when you should fold. You can't win for losing. It's what the house counts on, the pros too. You're off-balance. You're out of your right mind, and on tilt.
