Monkey Tilt

Poker terms can be very interesting and vivid, like this monkey tilt.

It's an extreme form of tilt, often caused by a series of bad beats, excessive table banter from donkeys, or otherwise pure luck in a poker game. The poker player experiencing monkey tilt may experience one or more of the following symptoms:

1) complete and utter disregard for money (in fact, other players may even claim that the player in question "hates money")

2) frequent bluffs and all-in moves before the flop in a no-limit Texas Hold'em game

3) calling bets with complete disregard for the cards or the odds being offered

4) calling jumping up and down screaming "oooh oooh aah ahh" while shoving a banana down your own throat
