Why is Watching a NIT Run HOT so Difficult??

Last night, I watched perhaps the biggest NIT in my game run super hot. Is there anything more difficult to watch? Especially when he's getting paid off big time.

Here's a 3 hand stretch from this guy...

1.) My second hand at the table, I run a set of 7's into his set of Aces--stacked for 160BB's.

2.) Very next hand--a terrible player attempts to bluff NIT off of an obvious set of Aces (yes back to back sets of Aces)--stacked player for 200BB's.

3.) Very next hand--there's like 7 limpers, and NIT is in BB with A4o. Flop is AAA. I can't even describe the action this guy got. I think he stacked 3 players for 100BB-200BB each.

I guess everyone will run hot from time to time, but when a NIT runs hot, it's difficult to watch because I hate seeing them get big action. Thankfully, NIT racked up and left--which is fine with me because this player would have been in full lock down mode anyway!

    I agree it's difficult. I suppose Tommy Angelo has something to say about it, but until I digest that, I'm going to accept that I feel this way.

    Not worst than seeing terrible players going again and again against NITs and their obvious monster hands and getting stacked... making the table running dry because all the bad players have given their stacks to a closed NIT.

    @Red

    For example, at this very moment, a NIT 3 bet a fish. Flop is 245r. NIT bets, fish calls. Turn is 7d. NIT over bets and here's what fish said...

    You either have 86, 63, or 77. A NIT has zero of these hands. Fish ends up all in for 250BB. NIT shows QQ, fish shows A7. So even with fish's terrible hand reading ability, he still found a call.

    Glad fish is currently in line to rebuy.

    ABC still wins the $$$ in low stakes live games - many NITs like myself can attest. Seems like you're suffering from entitlement/hubris tilt more than anything (IE you should be winning & not them because your strategy is so much better/superior, etc.).

    Those ABC players are only beating these blind fish players tho--and as long as there are enough of them, the ABC player will do fine. I don't feel entitled or tilted, just wish it was me the fish was dumping to!

    It doesn't seem to phase me that a nit can run hot from time to time. He plays a nearly pretty dam sound range and he knows his cards will come just as I know his cards will come too from time to time. The thing that scares me is finding out your casino shuffler is broken or the dealer hasn't washed the deck. Last night pocket aces were dealt pretty much five times back to back after 10 hands were dealt. It's hard when the biggest pocket pair in the deck is dealt almost every hand because you watch that it leads to stacking multiple players and then you feel like the game is just toxic sick. It happens all the time be ready for it.

    That's not the gripe. The gripe is
    a) weak players keep paying off the nits, stupidly
    b) the weak players no longer have any money to play with
    c) the money is now locked up!

    lol, there are many ways to get unlucky at the poker table

    Ive never felt that way? Im surprised sometimes that they are deep stacked by getting paid off, but it cant upset me.


    I just saw the post above and i guess I agree. My room has an almost daytime/night shift thingy so i see the nits leave around 6 pm and then I take over.

    In my small stakes games there are tons of bad player and some whales. Abc isnt the best way.
