At the end of an 8 ball game do you feel cheated? - 09-24-2020, 05:44 AM

So I am curious does anyone else feel cheated when they get done playing 8 ball on a coin op table and there are still balls on the table? It feels like I paid for the game I should be able to shoot all the balls in the holes before the next game so I got my money worth. Even if they are my opponents balls I still feels cheated.

Anyone else feel this way?

Thanks

Just play in poolrooms where they charge by the hour.
What you do with your time is your choice not the tables choice.


Pool may not build character but it certainly will reveal it.

How do you feel? Fast and loose, man.

No league uses the few rental tables we have at the 1 pool hall we have. Also depending on the day of the week and hour of the day I am forced to play coin op because the pool hall is not open. But I will ask next league night If I can shoot the balls that are left on the table. Lets see how that goes over lol.

I've never felt "cheated". But I will say that I find it hard to understand how two players can finish a game, leaving 4 or 5 balls on the table, and no one else is in the place or up to play, and neither of these two players shoots the remaining balls in. I guess their love for the game is nowhere near mine. I can't tell you how many times I've ran those last few balls out with whatever housecue was left on the table after two ball bangers walked off and abandoned the table after playing a game. I'd think...Free practice! Lol

So, you want to hold up league play so you can shoot the left over balls in?😂😂😂.

So I am curious, you complain league night takes too long, yet you are going to drag it out even longer for everyone else following you?

I find as I get older , that I feel cheated at many things, if we have 4 pork chops for dinner, my grandson usually gets the extra one, and if he doesn't my wife does. I just can't eat as fast as I once did.
Same thing with the ice cream, by the time I get to it, it's pretty watery and all the toppings are gone.
I don't play 8 ball , I think it is a goofy game , and I don't play in bars , because I don't drink and there is nothing worse than a loud mouthed drunk on a pool table.
It seems like many things bother you, that most people don't even pay attention to, I am wondering if you might not want to take up badminton or some other sport a little less stressful. Have a wonderful day.

I'm one of those if the case ball is conceded, I'll shoot it. This is more to complete the game aesthetically than anything else but there's a continuity aspect to pocketing your money ball and not just the cash. If the game is 8 ball, I will pocket the remaining balls as well. Absolutely; free practice.

I can't understand it either. I have played a few games for free at bars. Everytime I go to a bar I always check to see if anyone left any coins in the coin shoot and also press the button to see if there are any games credited. I have gotten 4 free games at one place before and a few free games at other places. The only thing I can think is people play pool then they either get too drunk and thrown out or it is closing time and get thrown out.

I can at least ask. It never hurts to ask.

I need more excitement not less. I am working on a pool game where before every shot you must spin around 5 times in a spiny chair.

No he just gets tired of watching his opponent run out all the time after he sells out.

Wouldn’t help. There’s the chance of an early money ball. Plus, just think about all those wasted high balls that never get used!
