I like and respect serious players, really I do, but they make up maybe 10% of my business.
Your poolroom, your choice, but do you really think you would lose all those non-serious playing customers if you had all the tables covered in the same cloth color like tournaments blue Simonis?And since I have 16 tables going at $16/ hour this afternoon and will soon have 24 tables going at $20-$24 for 6 or 7 hours…I truly don’t care about being a non-serious travesty of a whorehouse. I run it like a business.
Serious players who have been around say the cloth here is changed more often than anywhere else, ever.
A policy that every player on every table uses the correct color of chalk for that particular table (particularly in the case of recreational players who don’t even know better) is a virtually impossible task for your staff to enforce, and a table that has chalk marks on it of another color looks like crap.
