When you go out, and don't want to tip anyone off; what do you take with you?

I guess if you look like SVB, Earl Strickland, or Efren; it won't matter much.

I take whatever cue I'm using as my player at the time.

What you trying to hide?

Who you sneaking up on?

Luther's not home.

Are you saying there are people out there today that you can sneak up on and rob?

The best way to do it is to walk in with your best cue and say you can beat anybody in the house.

Not sneaking. More about theft than anything else.

Now; I know dang well in a serious pool room, I'd better not do that.

I'm talking about a person slipping in without any fanfare, and playing a few games while observing the room; and choosing which tables / players to approach.

You notice someone with a pretty cue, playing for a few dollars a game; and try to catch them when their opponent walks away.

Or perhaps you notice someone practicing bank shots, and missing at least half of them; with their fancy looking imitation inlaid Player's cue. They have a haircut like Tom Cruise, and an overly loud looking cue and case.

I bet you paid your way through college playing pool, too


Braggadocio will get you played by anyone. A pretty cue and confidence will get the sharks loosed upon you.


Make sure you check your references before you buy on this site. Even a mod here engages in bad business!

I'm starting to think there needs to be a separate forum section for "it's still 1955" fantasy threads.

My current break cue is a sneaky from Phillippi. Ebony butt, Maple forearm, standard blank joint collars. I currently have a new break cue on order from him that is going to be a slightly less fancy version of my playing cue. The old break cue/sneaky will become a backup player for the less desirable places I may cue.

You mean to tell me this isnt Fantasy Island?!?



In any wager, there is a fool and a thief. Knowing ahead of time who you are, might just save you money.

Breaker: Poison

What a brilliant question! Let's see, perhaps my very plain looking Balabushka- why? 1. No young guns in the room would have any clue as to what it represented, 2. I could go to the bathroom and leave it on the table- no one would bother to steal it, 3. No one in the room would have ANY idea of how much money I actually had in my pocket!

On a more serious note, looking at this game through the window that you are suggesting is EXACTLY why Golf first prizes are $million with national television exposure and billiards is non existent!
