Because I study, practice, and play for higher stakes than my opponents in this game, I "deserved" to win regardless of the cards that came.
"Don't you know who I am? Don't you know that I'm more experienced, and am entitled to take all of your chips today? Yeah, I know we haven't played a hand yet... but I believe you should concede right now and hand over your money."
What a jackass way of thinking! I wasn't entitled to anything but the cards dealt, and the ability to bet in any way I see fit... THAT'S ALL!!! Why would I think any other way? Thinking I was entitled to win shows a lack of respect for my opponents and their ability, no matter what their level. As you can guess, I got my arse handed to me that session, mainly because my ego wanted to show everyone who he was... how'd that work out for me??!!
