Question about sitting at a table with a Donkey...
When you're at a table with a person you absolutely know is a donkey -- and they're paying you off very nicely -- do you root for them in pots with other players?
Right now I'm sitting at a .10/.20 table with an extreme donkey. He is basically the only one at the table giving me their money... yet, he has put a few bad beats on me and knocked me down a bit.
Every single time he enters a hand with someone betting strong, though, I find myself pulling for him, heh. If someone goes all-in preflop (usually with JJ or better), he'll call with A8o, and once he called in all in with T4s.
I won 3 all-ins against him and he refilled with $10 every time. Biggest pot was $19 against him and another player. I had a full house, the other player I was trapping hit his nut flush on the turn, and there's no telling what donk had.
And literally, as I'm typing this up I win a $14 all-in pot against him. I had KK and raised 5X BB, he re-raises all-in, and I call. He had A9s. And boo! at breaking him with that hand, hehe. He's left the table now. I guess I kept him for as long as I good; I was complimenting his wins, keeping a conversation going, and even folding almost all of my blinds to him to keep him at the table.
It was a good 40 minute session, though.
+$39 in 40 minutes at a .10/.20 isn't bad at all.
So, any opinions on milking the donkey (no pun intended) at tables? And rooting for them when they're against other players?
Ohh, and yes, I took his name down.
