actually tilt means that they just had a really bad beat and they are trying everything they can to get their money back. it's usually a good time to catch them making a really bad call, because they're flustered! i learned one the other day though. NTD, which meant nice take down... because i won the pot without having to show my name. i guess thats a way to say nice hand without seeing my hand. the more you play, the more lingo you'll learn. i had a guy get made at me the other day because i was telling him NH, which meant nice hand, and he was new to the game and thought i was telling him he had No Hand... when it got to be heads up between us he asked me what it meant and then he told me, he had been mad at me the whole game, and had been trying to take me out! it was too funny!
