...I don't see why you would be sick of players who play hands like these. I love them. You're complaining about the players who make you the most money? Why? Chalk it up to the bad end of variance because that's all it is.
That's why we will never see a two-time WSOP winner ever again, because of these types of people.
...No, we probably won't see a 2x WSOP ME winner again because a) fields are so big now compared to before. b) the main playing style is much different then before; its more aggressive. c) There are a lot more skilled players out there, so it's a bit harder than before.
It's the bad players who make it easier for the good players to do well. Honestly, I doubt any good player worries about the bad players in tournaments, they're just dead money to them. Are good players going to win all the time? No, of course not. Are bad players going to do well sometimes? Yes, of course. The difference is good players know that they will come out in top in the end because poker is a long term game.

Think about what you are saying. Seriously, think about it.
You want to ban all of these 'stupid players'. Why? Because they rely on luck? Because they happen to get lucky sometimes and beat you-even though, mathematically, that is bound to happen? You want to get rid of the players that basically pad your bankroll and make you profit. That's just brilliant. Really brilliant.
So, I guess you'd rather player better, smarter, never-make-mistakes players and hardly ever make any profit. You might make some, but it will be significantly less than what you make off of bad players. But thats fine, because to you, the object of poker is not to make money.
