it seems that what they are doing is working. instead of hating on them you should be thinking about why it is working and what you can do to counter it.this is basically aggrodonk strategy on steroids. (aggrodonk is a trademark of Alf13 enterprises). Yes in theory it stinks but it can be very effective for a time....eventually these guys will have to adjust and switch gears to win anything of note or run hot for 3 days (see: Nguyen, Danny)
What I can do to counter it is wait for good cards and push. Or I can pick a random hand and challenge them. The latter is the lottery strategy, the former works if the rest of the table is not giving Lottery Guy a huge lead. When the rest of the table is weak, LG has such a huge lead that you have to beat them 3 or 4 times in a row, which is unlikely even with the best hands. I'm sure they are not winning in the long run, but they knock enough people out that they probably make it to the money enough to think it is a viable strategy.

I find the lack of sanity in your post disturbing. Poker is never and will never be equivalent to Powerball. In fact, I think we are all dumber for having read the above post. I award you no points and may god have mercy on your soul.
OK, maybe not lottery, but blackjack, anyway, where you just have to win a bunch of coin tosses in a row.
