  1. If a block is found immediately after the previous block, before there’s a chance to sort out the updated transaction pool, it’s to the benefit of the miner to broadcast it anyway and claim the block reward.

    Alternatively, someone is just being a dick, but there’s nothing that forces anyone to include transactions.
