As a military vet, I appreciate your thoughts on that.
I've also played a lot while stationed in Biloxi (Beau). I only feel bad if it's a bad beat and it's someone I play with regularly and am friendly with. Like yesterday...
I sit to the left of an acquaintance, Jeff, who says he's been having a bad day, while I give a sympathetic ear. About 5 hands later, someone raises to 20 under the gun. Jeff reraises to $55. I look down at QQ. Jeff's stack is $250, I'm at $550. I reraise to $175, so I can't fold no matter what he does. UTG folds. Jeff thinks for a second, then shoves. I say "call" and start moving chips to the middle. He says, "I have aces."
He shows them.
I spike a queen on the river.
I did feel bad about that one.
