I'll agree 100% with the motivation - a lot of people come to the casino poker table to gamble
, not necessarily to play poker.
This is a Good Thing(TM) for us though. Granted, it can be difficult when there's three of them in every pot and you're probably going to need a better hand to win than if you were just up against one of them. But when you do catch that better hand, and it'll come eventually, you ought to get paid off big.
I'm a firm believer that you just need to adjust your game, and think of the long run. If people really are sucking out on you for the big pots, it means you're making the right plays and should be making money in the long run.
