:-) thanks for the kind words. Well, "annihilate" seems a bit harsh - and they really were a couple of nice guys, who I'd happily be friendly with away from the table, but yes, no matter what, when I play, the goal is to beat my opponents and take their money. I never really worry too much about getting offended by anything, but I was secretly wondering the whole time while at the table if they might've ended up saying something nasty about someone.
Good luck to you at the tables my friend!
