It is limited by how big and mean your opponent is.

If you are willing to not only lose your money, but get an ass-whipping as well, go ahead Punk and make somebody's day.

None of your business was the correct answer But, if someone did that to me , if I was just robbing them anyway, I would make a joke of it , if it was a close game for serious money , he forfeited the game when he picked the ball up.
If he didn't like it ,I would stuff him in a wood chipper, and ask him if he was sure, that was how he wanted to play it.
Sometimes you have to let idiots know you are the serious type.

Despite what people are saying, situations like this affect the ownership and every patron of the room.

Player 2 should be suspended from the room. If he continues this type of behavior after being allowed back, he should be banned.

In poker we call it "tapping the fish bowl". Or more specially DON'T tap the fish bowl. If you gotta put up with a little shenanigans to keep the action flowing, then you do.

Lmao, you really think ending pool gambling would do that? That's the funniest thing I've heard in a long time.

He didn't "pull" anything. If it had been a serious game that'd be different, but obviously since a fight or argument didn't play out, player 1 didn't give a rat's ass.


There is a pocket imprinted on the backside of every object ball.

The rail is your best friend.

It is called 'keeping a customer'. If that's what he needs to cross the finish line and get it out of his pocket, sometimes that's the cost of playing with suckers.

Generally speaking, when a player moves a ball, the other guy gets to put it back where he thinks it was.

I have had many an opponent put it back where it strongly favored them v the neighborhood where it actually was and there's nothing I can do about it because I moved the damned ball in the first place. So if I'm Player 1, I'm putting it back right up again the nine for an unmissable combo.

Game over.

in a tournament maybe, but if a "friendly" game between friends, they can play however they want. they can play the whole game with their bare hands if they want (as long as they are not damaging the equipment)

I assume you're asking how should player 2 have dealt with this

He lost the set, so obviously he didn't move the 1 ball to the right location, should have used his hand and frozen the 1 ball to another ball



sarcasm off
