How would you handle this? - 07-19-2019, 05:32 AM

Ok, so two guys were gambling at the local pool hall last night. They know each other well and gamble often. Player 1 is obviously the better player and is winning easily. Fast forward to the final set. Player 1 is now giving player 2 a considerable amount of weight and it goes hill-hill. Player 2 scratches on the break and the 1-9 combo is lined up pretty nicely. On his way to his seat, player 2 intentionally moves the one ball against the rail, making the combo impossible to even attempt. He says “There’s no rule stating that I cannot do this and it’s just ball in hand.” After some words Player 1 just takes ball in hand and ends up winning the set. This one just rubbed me the wrong way and wanted to hear how some of you would have dealt with something like this. Thanks!

So he’s a weak player and even weaker in character. Forget about it. Karma will take care of him.

Sounds like it is none of your business, as uninvolved player 3, no?

Player 1 is too nice of a guy to do that.

Player 1 has the option of leaving the ball or moving it back where it was … no??

i would consider it a concession and take the money. but it does connect to a similar question some guy asked me, how fouly can an intentional foul be? my response was that it's limited to the cue striking the cue ball

I might have played the rack out and won however if I missed, I would have waited until #2 got on the 8-ball and then I would have picked up the 9-ball and moved it to an impossible shot or maybe to another table.

I would have then taken my money told him to quit doing stupid shit.

I immediately thought concession as well. It was definitely something that has never come up before. Considering the player I was actually not surprised at all. He’s infamous for things like this.

Player 1 gives Player 2 weight but still takes him to the cleaners? Player 1 pulls that stunt and Player 2, albeit clearly disgruntled, continues to beat him. Just leave them to it. Player 1 has a decision to make - either stop playing with this clown, or keep taking his money.

Wow, thanks for telling us - that’s new information (to us) that changes everything. Except it doesn’t - although it should because a d1ckh3ad like that should be run out of the place.
