re: Poker & Hit and Runs
If a guy is doing this, it means that he just won a big pot from someone, and is either too scared to play at the table, or maybe he decided to take a shot with all his BR at a limit and left when he doubled up
I dunno - i guess it would piss me off if someone did this to me, but it's their decision as to whether they want to stay or leave.
If it was live, and a guy put a beat on me then just booked, i'd probably be pretty pissed and hunt him down

I don't understand the reasoning behind this.
If you are making a good profit like that, then that means that you are at a good table.
When i'm at a good table (weak players/loose maniacs - whatever) i bring as much as I can, because i want to win the most possible in a pot when i've got a big hand.
You said that you don't want to lose the profit you just made, but if there's someone with a stack as big or bigger than yours, don't you want to make as much as possible too? I mean if you are making a $30 profit on a hand when you only have $20 at a table, then the table's pretty damn profitable. I realize that your example was just for illustration, but even $5 profit or $10 would show how weak the table is.
The fact that you say that you don't want to lose
those profits implies that you are maybe a lesser player than the rest of the table? If so, you shouldn't be playing at those limits! (that is IF you're playing for profits; and i don't think you're playing .25/.50 for practice)
