.......something else happens.
Playing BJ in a party pit at a local joint. Table is a 10-1000 table. No purple in the tray. Guy comes to the table and buys for 4K. Has at least 20K behind. Takes a seat and throws down 800. Starts winning. Not long and he's up 3K.
Starts getting into it. Then he throws out 200 for the dealer and 100 to myself and the other 2 guys at the table. Casino fills 20 purple. While filling guy in seat 4 is dubbed the super hero, guy to his left is named the innocent bystander, dealer is the hot chick, I am bequeathed the title of villain.
Play commences. Guy starts flat betting table max. He catches his fair share of good hands. Dealer is running bad. He's tossing chips to everyone based on his interpretation of events related to a comic book. He's tipping the dealer a 100 every other hand. She's about ready to orgasm as they keep their own. Casino brings another 20 purple.
Play commences and guy hits some nice doubles and a couple of naturals. Pit is all over the action. Fist bumping by the dealer becomes not allowed. Casino bringing out a 30K fill. Guy dubs the pit boss super villain for not allowing fist bumping by the dealer.
Play commences big player starts to turn down after reaching about 15k and giving dealer at least 1500 and I had 400 from him. He churns around over the course of the next half hour and busts out. He would have been even if not for dealer tips and giving us at the table money for stupid stuff related to his storyline. Thought to myself, well it was good while it lasted.
Out comes 10K and guy rebuys. Goes to 2 hands and winds up on another tear. Splits, doubles, naturals you name it and he's getting it. Guy is throwing chips all over the place. If the pit boss gets to close he blows smoke in the "super villain's" direction. He's mad that he can't fist bump. Casino starts sweating the action. There are now 2 additional pit critters.
Original dealer returns from a break and you could see the envy from the relief dealer even though she got at least 300 in her box. Guy was giving more to the table and betting on top of our spots, with our permission of course, during his epic run. I forgot about the game and just tried to keep the guy entertained flat betting 50 because sometime he would double it if the villain was in play. I'm up over 1500 at this point. I had 350 or so in front of me when he initially arrived.
Casino bring out another fill 20K and shuts table to others and says we can play as long as we want but will close after we all leave. Guy has close to 25K at this point after giving away at least 5K in tips and rewards. This will be the highest chip count guy will see all night.
The shenanigans continued for 2 more hours. At times the donating money and tips would slow but remained pretty steady all the way to the very bitter end. Dude left busted without rebuying and a big old smile on his face down 14K. I finished up 2800. Main dealer had to get another toke box, as this places were pretty small.
Some guy kept trying to give me chips once at Delaware Park and the dealer wouldn't allow it. They're the most strict casino I've ever played at.

A contrarians viewpoint:
He did not do ANYTHING wrong. He played the way he was happy to play. He is no different than a Ploppie, or a very skilled Card Counter. He has his preferences and his personal values and he is just as rightful in his behaviour as if he stands on a pair of 8s, or bets the hardways or bets his Pai when he should bet his Gow.
The Wizard bets Don't Pass each and every time because he carries math out to four places and likes the result. Is this any more 'right' than some other strategy.
It was the 'villain's' money. Let him have fun as he sees fit.
The guy absolutely didn't do anything wrong. He had an awesome time. The whole table did. I believe even the pit boss that was getting smoked out enjoyed it.
