Tilt Breaker Features

Slide 1

Do you know what all of the top pro's consider to be the #1 skill that gives them their edge over opponents? No, it's not risk tolerance or the ability to make some sicko move to outplay their opponents; they all cite the ability to manage themselves better than everyone else. That means tilt control, bankroll management, and flat out knowing when it's time to quit.

Tilt Breaker is designed to help you manage yourself on a professional level, plain and simple. We strive to make Tilt Breaker as customizable as possible, allowing you to tailor TB to your exact needs. Tilt Breaker's goal is to cut out as much of your bad volume and bad habits as possible, so that you are minimizing the effect variance has on your winrate. Downswings are inevitable, but how you manage downswings can be the difference between a break even player and a long term winner.

Auto Break

Quitting is for Winners

Never experience that bankroll-crippled-soul-crushed-why-didn’t-I-just-quit feeling ever again with Tilt Breaker’s automatic stop loss feature. Once you hit an Auto Break rule Tilt Breaker will automatically sit you out, remove you from cash tables, and prevent all buy-in functions.

Key Features

Set Scheduled Breaks and Critical Stopping Points for your sessions
  • You can create stopping points based on:
    • Stop Loss and Stop Win:
      • by Money (€, £, $)
      • by Big Blinds (bbs)
      • by Percentage (%) lost from the peak of your session
    • Stop Hands Played
    • Stop Time Played
Auto Break rules can be applied to:
  • individual sessions
  • all the sessions in a day
  • all cash tables
  • individual cash tables
  • from Session Start
  • from Session Peak
How It Works:
  • Never interrupts active tournaments
  • Displays a Delay Timer to allow you to finish active hands once you reach a rule
  • Automatically sits you out and removes you from cash tables
  • Prevents buy-in functions for the duration of your lockdown time
  • Tracks session information across all supported sites simultaneously
  • Session Info Tool that displays your session stats in real time


Auto Break currently only supports cash games, however tournament support is in the works.


Bankroll Manager

Block Bad Games + More Volume in Good Games = $$$

The Bankroll Manager allows you to set custom rules that keep you playing the games you should play, at the proper stakes, at the proper times, and at a manageable number of tables. Plus it can also block the cashier so you focus on decisions and not results.

    • Always
    • or only during sessions

Ever wonder where you Tilt?

Optimus analyzes your playing history, using your Holdem Manager database, to figure out where your tilt triggers are and where mental fatigue sets in. Optimus accomplishes this by determining your winrate after you reach certain thresholds; for example how well you play after losing  €500. Optimus then takes these results and turns them into a graph, so you can visualize your performance and pinpoint the exact spots where you should take a break.

Key Features:

  • Determines where tilt and fatigue set in
  • Creates graphs so you can visualize how your performance changes after reaching certain thresholds
  • Cuts out the guesswork for Auto Break rules
  • Three report types
    • Performance by Gain/Loss
    • Performance by Time Played
    • Performance by Hands Played
  • Provides recommended stopping points
  • Data points in graphs can be hovered over to show sample size



App Blocker

Block Distractions. Stay Focused.

Keep your focus on the hands at play by minimizing your on-screen distractions. Tilt Breaker's App Blocker draws a screen over your entire desktop, including multiple monitors, and only allows applications of your choosing to stay visible on top of the screen.

Key Features

  • Draws a screen over the entire desktop
  • Only apps that you list as approved stay on top of the screen
  • All supported poker sites and Holdem Manager HUDs are approved by default
  • Transparency bar for increasing or decreasing the transparency of the screen
  • Multiple color options for the screen
  • Hotkey for turning the screen on and off
    • Option to disable hotkey during a session
  • Disable timer that automatically turns the App Blocker off after your last Hand History in a session
  • Option to launch the screen when you open a poker site



Smart Lock

No, you can't just restart your computer to bypass TB

Smart Lock is the process that Tilt Breaker uses to engage a lockdown of a poker site, and the Bypass Security in place to make sure you stick to your rules. We call it Smart Lock, because Tilt Breaker identifies cash and tournament tables, and then handles each table type separately. Grind away at cash and tournament tables simultaneously without worrying about your tournament being interrupted if you go into lockdown.

Key Features

  • Lockdown Process:
    • Activates a Delay Timer to finish current hands
    • Checks “Sit Out Next Hand” or "Sit Our Next Big Blind" on all cash tables
    • Closes all cash tables once the Delay Timer expires
    • Prevents the ability to register for tournaments or buy-in to cash games until your Break is over
    • Active tournaments are never interrupted
    • Prevents Heads Up Sit & Go rematches
  • Tilt Breaker cannot be bypassed by:
    • Rebooting your PC
    • Manipulating the Windows clock
    • Task Manager
    • Turning off Hand History settings
