    Behavior of Guests in Your Home

    I don't want to start a rant, but oftentimes I feel that some of my billiard playing guests could display better manners while being a guest at my home. I'd like to hear from those of you who have home tables, or are guests of those who do, and what your likes/dislikes are.

    Is anyone else noticing that it is getting easier to find people that want to play for something these days? It almost seems like many older guys are dusting off their cues and after reading one of the plethora of "My Road Story" books want to bet some.
