Well, after that great story you told...yeah.

I'd much rather sit at a table like yours, even without the chip flips, with the guy winning, than to see him lose. But he was a sport either way it went, so he got his money's worth, I guess.

I leave tables with jerks, bullies, and whiners. Life's too short. If I were ap'ing, though, I'd have to stay, because the more they pule, the better cover it is for me.

I'd guess the latter would explain at least some of the votes you're getting, OP.

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!

My thoughts exactly, Mr. Smooth!

Although, if there is a Jackwagon at my table, I do prefer that he get waxed, but only because he will leave (hopefully) when he is busted.

But there's a problem with this poll: the question of self-awareness.

Do JackWangs know they're JackWangs?

If not, is it not possible some JackWangs have voted against themselves here?

That would be the first optionů
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.

...Which would you enjoy watching more? and why?

I'm really surprised to see so many say lose... I'm one for a nice cold revenge on people who deserve it, but I'd MUCH rather see a nice guy win.

One, the world needs more nice people in general. Having some "small" emotional justice in having the nice guy have a good day/night just feels like karma the way it 'should' work.

Two, if I'm playing with the guy, and he can't lose, there would be "some" co-variance involved that would probably mean I'm winning as well. If playing a carny game such as UTH, if he's winning every hand then the dealer would more than likely be missing a lot of the boards. BJ... the dealer "probably" would be busting a bit more often at least. While there's of course no guarantee, there's a SMALL chance that if he's winning EVERY hand that the table he's at is also winning.

Three, most of the time when a-holes lose, they start to berate the dealer. I, of course, will not allow this and it often takes the heat from the dealer to me... Which I'm not concerned with as I've fought for 10+ years and if he swings first it's literally on camera and if he's an a-hole everyone will agree with my story. A-holes that lose just turn up their a-hole meter to a whole new level. I'm not one for "feelings" and "flow" but I'd much rather be more zen/peaceful around nice people than toxic a-holes.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

There are other players at the table? I tend not to notice. Unless someone is offending me personally, I tend to relegate them to little more than white noise.

The Wicked never die, not much hope for them losing.
Looks like sh!t just got imaginary!
