We'll just have to accept that we look at "deserve" differently. Yes, gamblers deserve the gains (or losses) they get from their high risk gambles. If they play higher risk games/bets, they deserve the higher rewards that come from it. But if that doesn't match how you think about "deserve", that is fine.
Maybe "earn" is another thing. Did they earn the gains they got with mvis, based on "smart" decisions, no.
But we'll get way off into the weeds debating how to look at "deserve" and "earn" and other terms.
