That Trick Never Works.

Some advice for people who don't want to play in an online poker tournament anymore, but still have lots of chips:  Please, just sit out.  Don't try dumping your chips by doing things like going all in with bad hands.  Ignoring the fact that it's probably against the rules on many poker sites all too often it backfires, resulting in not only you winning the hand and getting even more chips, but some poor player who thought he was going to get a bunch of easy chip getting knocked out because your 3-5 offsuit connects with the flop hard.  Frankly I can't understand why you think you need to do anything but sit out.  Your chips will get blinded off soon enough, so there's no need to disrupt things by trying to get knocked out.

(If you guessed I was playing in a poker tournament while I wrote this, you're right.)
