I played poker every day for three months at the Stardust hotel in Vegas when I was only 19. I made my expenses and had enough left over to visit the poolrooms and get fleeced for whatever I had left.
P.S. I went with $1,500 and came home with $1,500. The mob ran the Stardust and just about all of Vegas then. I could get free meals in the casino every day and was never asked for my ID. The mob guys liked me because I wasn't afraid to get in the games and gamble with the cheats. Hell, I didn't know any better. But I did know how to play Seven Card Stud and understood odds better than almost all of them.

They don't want to go to a casino, per se.

They want to go to a pool tournament.

That's cool, I am a noted poker player (Hold 'em of course not stud). Cheating at poker in a Casino? Wow, must have been wild. Obviously no automatic shufflers, but a set up (deck) change? An extra scramble? Or do you mean like Yellow lens glasses? ""Signaling" only works in the movies. Don't mean to hijack, I could talk about poker forever.

If pool players had to have knowledge of geometry and physics before talking about geometry and physics, all of the aiming threads would disappear.

Where do you have to be 21, obviously not in the middle area where the slim to no cue venders are anymore. I assume itís only the big room down stairs and the action room? The big heads behind the Derby donít control the hotel, nor places like the restaurants. I mean FFS they stop adults at the top of the escalator who donít even know thereís a tournament going on and are just trying to use the business center. The whole thing is a complete shit show.

Thanks for the info, but what if a 19 year old identifies as a 34 year old?

First of all in some casinos back then they used to pass the deal from player to player.
At the Stardust sometimes the dealers were in with one or more of the players, and then you had the guys who would hold out cards. I had to be on the lookout for everything, but if I knew when to play (and against who), and stay out of the cheats way I could actually make money. Let's just say it was a learning experience.

P.S. I stuck to the 2-4 and 3-6 games and stayed away from the 5-10 game, which was the big game back then. That was where more funny stuff went on.

Keith Thompson. I believe he was 19 when he won. He was a pretty good 9-Ball player, maybe the seven or eight ball under the best players. He went home to Texas and kind of disappeared after that. A lot of guys were looking to play him and he ducked out fast.

Years ago I got as high as 30-60 even dabbled a hand or two in the 40-80 and then switched to no limit tournament and never looked back. Its all about the slow march, not the richter scale that is cash. (even limit or maybe especially limit.)

Correct. Which means neither do pool tournaments if there is any future for this game.
