For a period of 4 years, (about 30 years ago) I did extremely well playing one pocket. There were some "business people" who liked playing "Joey With A Tie" and like most things, it didn't last forever. They got called away and it's been downhill ever since.

I kept one, too, but for only a year or so.

My bud and I did the bar scene around the state, mostly in town, and betting for beers, $5 games, and other pretty much low-ball bets, I was making ~$150 a month back then. That paid for my drinking and some gas expenses, so the net was nothing but fun. And what fun we had!!!

Another way to ask is, what did you do with your winnings? If you were smart you stayed out casinos, card game unless your real good at cards, race tracks or gave it back on the pool table. The smart ones invested it in something. 99% will not have the money they won unless they invested it OUTSIDE of pool.

When you get ahead a certain amount, buy something you can double your money on...and repeat. If it's something like cars you're flipping, try to buy a more expensive each time. Johnnyt

Johnnyt,
What did you do with all of your winnings from the landscapers, painters, delivery guy and all of the other laborers that you heisted?

Gambling on pool probably around $20,000-$30,000, if you add in gambling as far as cards and other gaming I would say probably tack on another $70,000-$80,000 so I am figuring a $100,000 in the past ten years.

Maybe I shouldn't have warned you not to play Matt?

I will confess to losing a hundy to him, but it really was just a donation. He was in need...

I sent you a PM. What I said has nothing to do with Johnny.

This is brilliant. Excellent piece of writing.
