A genuine act of kindness
I ran into this guy playing microstakes a couple nights back, he was doing very well, actually we both were. He seemed like a really cool guy, we both had some laughs as we dominated what was clear was a very soft table. So last night I ran into him again, and although we didnt stay at the same table for very long, it was clear we had a mutual respect for one another. So today I was playing at a table, losing quite badly, and he popped in as an observer and asked how I did last night. I told him the truth, terrible, and he told me he cleaned up. I said congrats, yatta yatta. So that was that.
15 minutes later I get a 5 dollar transfer from him.
I know it's only 5 dollars...but for someone who's been up and down like I have, and considering that was actually almost half of my entire bankroll, I was very greatful.
You don't often encounter people like this, at least I don't, and as small of an act as it was, I will not forget it. Now to all of you, have you ever had someone do this, and if so, what is the common courtesy as far as paybacks go. I know he isn't absolutely expecting it, but I imagine throwing him 7-8 bucks if my bankroll will allow in a few days or so would be a good returning gesture. Or is the 5 enough to just pay back?
