That's poker, but more often then not the opposite will happen against these players. I want them to continue giving money away.
This happened to me just now, so I targeted the biggest fish and started limping/calling raises with marginal holdings when he was in the hand to see if I could flop something. Also helped that he called my preflop raises of good hands.
My AK with a K on the turn beat his nothing that he called me to the river with, and I flopped a baby straight with an A4o that he min raised preflop. After losing 3 hands to me he left the table.
Then I had to leave 'cause I was in the habit of playing too loose and turning into a calling station myself and donking away chips.
btw, this thread led me to google my username. Interesting how some of my hands show up on other forums in hand histories that other people have posted.
