I think that Emotional Sensitivity to Losses explains more variance and is more interesting then PES or PEET. To some extent it even mediates the effects. This would suggest that bad decisions and tilting in poker are better explained by being a "sore loser" than any of these other variables.

I am the person who did the analysis and designed the questionnaires in this study. Even though I am flattered by the publicity of my work, I would like to note that this is selective reporting. IMHO you should have concentrated on Emotional sensitivity rather than these other things. Selective reporting is often connected with political aims.
