Even if he loses this, he's back again later. And tomorrow. And the next day. What is the point of giving pots to someone like this? I see other players posting how this doesn't make sense, either. On multiple forums. As stated in the past: The game just doesn't make sense. Gamblers play house games they know they can never win in the long run day in and day out. What's the point of rewarding complete imbeciles in poker?
