It is not near as bad as you think it is. They do it so often that your odds
improve. It is definitely nothing like a lottery because I don't know anyone who has ever won a lottery and know loads of people who have won money on these hands - including myself.
They are giving away free money - and nobody has to play if they don't want in on it.
Heck - I rarely play cash games and managed to get in on one. I was not playing loads just to try to win - I was just randomly playing one night with some a few CC members. Dorkus won the hand and I got a share. Tenbob was sitting out lololololol. (I think he had gone to the bathroom or something).
