Gun to your head, which would you prefer:

A royal Jackhole getting pasted by the casino, whether or not he bets poorly, or runs into extreme -EV, he is taking a whooping, and getting more jackhole-d up with each losing bet.

or

A genuine nice guy who comes in, again regardless of betting strategy, and cleans up. Can't lose. Makes a bigger bet, gets a BJ, a little bigger, has to split and win, bigger, has to split a few times, and then double, and wins, etc. The man has the golden touch on this night.

Which would you enjoy watching more? and why?

I'd rather see the jackhole get wiped. I was at a table with a high roller once and he was being a giant P.O.S. to the dealer and to me. He was unfortunately winning when I had to leave. I would loved to have seen him get his $30,000 a hand clock cleaned.

At the Bellagio last week, playing $15 PGP, which a drunk at Casino War two tables away yelling, "More high cards! That's what I need!", martingaling with red chips. See him with a good stack of reds maybe $250. This goes on for about 10 minutes, look over, and he is standing there with nothing, looking glum. He was just trying to have fun, but his stupidity got in the way and he probably lost 6 in a row and lost it all in the space of about 2 minutes.

More high cards!!!

Crush the Jack-hole. Every time.

Oh, sure, it's nice to see a nice guy clean up - until the jealousy nerve kicks in. At least if a Jack-hole is winning, it's ok to be jealous.

But of the two choices? Yep, bust the Jack-hole.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition.

I voted schadenfreude too.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I wanted to see if I was the only one!

Glad that I am not...

I prefer not to be in the presence of assholes, regardless of their outcomes, so I pick the nice guy winning. Joy to the world!
