I found two remedies to this situation.
1: Even if the person sitting next to me wins ten million dollars I keep my mouth shut. I pretend I don't notice, I order a drink, go to the restroom I do whatever it takes to never utter the words - Way to go
2: This tactic takes patience. I will stick around until the person next to me tells more lies than I do and the odds swing in my direction.
