When someone makes a really rotten play against you and beats you in a pot, you've basically "paid" for the information that they will make plays like that, and you need to keep playing against them to make it back. It's true that poker is "one long game", but there's also a cost of acquisition of information. If you leave that table and go sit with some more unknowns, you'll have to pay to learn about them. Once you're sitting with someone who has large exploitable flaws which you've identified, that's a very valuable state, and leaving that situation is -EV, even if you can find more bad players in the future.
