      Deep breaths my friend. I know it sucks right now but just forget about it. It's part of the game and there's no way around it.

      Hit and run is the most annoying thing in online poker and its best to accept it as a reality and shrug it off.

      The amount of times today I've been hit and run is crazy. It happens.

      Don't let them get to you!

      ye i know its part of the game but it should get to the point were its unethical, i would have no prob if the guy sat down and after winning the frist hand played tight chilled out get a few hands even take a few $$$ off me but dam its annoying with things like this happen my friend who was with me when it happened said thats why he only plays stt or mtt's people cant get 1 hand then run and its a good point he made, i know im rambling a bit but hit and runners is bad bad for poker especialy in the sceanario were they play one hand and leggit

      because good players exploit their edge against worse players and are willing to stay if they feel they have an edge.

      if they hit and run, it means they either think they are worse than you and are happy to walk out with a profit, or they're not properly rolled for that limit so that little bit of profit means a lot to them. loss aversion plays a part in it too - people naturally hate being stuck more than they like being up. so if they can avoid the loss and get out of there with a win, its good for their ego and limits losses they would occur otherwise.

      please find me these players who are 'good players' and are sufficiently rolled for their limits.

      i have yet to meet a hit and runner who is a good player.

      also, it makes no sense to beat up or even threaten someone over money that he won from you fairly. not sure what the laws are in your country, but there would be some fun assault charges coming your way if you decided to pull a stunt like that.

      i don't know who van marcus is. show me his graph. you don't know what his bankroll is, perhaps he has a staker who stipulates that he quits after winning one buyin because of tilt/loss aversion issues.

      i think you're talking about mark vos.

      he is well despised as a shortstacker (not necessarily a hitnrunner) with very poor postflop game.

      playing poker for 2 hands or so is still poker, just not much of it. if something as petty as someone leaving after two hands bothers you, then i dont know what to say.

      clearly you and i play poker for different reasons.

      no his name is van marcus like i said and if you consider winning a few dollars after 2 hands then running to the next table and carrying out the same thing and so on so on POKER then obviously we do have differentresons for playing i play to play poker not to get lucky and run away and you call this petty and you dont know what to say, then say that to the majority of poker players dont like people who play 2 or 3 hands then run obiously ther is somethin up with you to me i dont give a rats what but you coming accross to me stupid, you think because your diamond and im silver that you are smarter or something either way i dont care

      paying poker for 2 hands or so is still poker, just not much of it. if something as petty as someone leaving after two hands bothers you, then i dont know what to say.

      if you consider that poker good luck with your career, i think they hae a high stakes poker episode of hit and runners or was that poker after dark maybe late night poker ??? npe i cant think of any right now maybe you might now

      lol i actually dont know why i bother responding to you, its like talking to a wall. maybe the wall is more capable of learning actually.

      i guess you can keep trying to learn from tv shows, and see where that gets you. go hire jamie gold to coach since he's your hero anyway, he's probably busto by now anyway and could use the money.

      please point out anything i've said that comes across to you as stupid, so i can laugh some more. there are reasons why a lot of diamonds like me make a living from this game and you continue to feed deposit after deposit into the poker sites.

      financial traders make there living by carrying out quick trades then "hit n running" and they do not for a second have sympathy for the people who lost in those trades and believe that they should "let them win some back"(lol) poker is also a game for making money at the expense of others and UNLESS you are playing against friends in a home game or a live game then it is no different to financial trading and the notion of "letting your opponent win some back" is frankly ridiculous.
