Trying to blame this whole thing on drunkenness doesn't really work when you still think it's a legit enough argument the next day to post about it in on a poker forum, lul.
Basically what others have said, why are you trying to treat a cash game like a tourney? You said there was plenty of rebuys, unless you have some sort of rule that stops people from being able to rejoin the cash game at a certain point for some unfathomable reason, I have no idea what the argument here would even be. "1/3 Chance to win?" "Blinding out?" Did you all just get so confused by having something with a tournament format running at the same time that you entirely forgot how cash games work?
Kudos to Guillermo though for magicking some DrunkLogic(tm) so ridiculous that it somehow managed to keep you confused for so long after. Amazing.
