re: Poker & Is it alright to take money from fishes or degenerate gamblers?
The first time I played live $1\$2, I witnessed a degen bust out, rebuy, rinse and repeat. It was kind of disturbing, and yet he was like the poker police, pointing out every time someone broke a rule.
I felt kind of sorry for him and a few others who sat down and repeatedly lost, but I look at it like they were there to gamble and had the right to play however they wanted. Being a fish\donk\degen is kind of a rite of passage for poker players. You either get pissed off at losing and decide to get better...or you don't. Either way, it's your choice.
The only people I feel sorry for are those who are legitimately addicted and can't stop themselves from financial ruin. It's sad for that to happen, but the shark who takes them has a right to eat. It's business.
