The "owning the table" section has my interest. It is an important thing to work out.
The best set up I've seen for this was in a bar in Manilla.
They had a chalk board with names for the waiting list.
Incoming player always gets to break (to stop one player from dominating the table).
If a player wins five games in a row, they are automatically off the table and back to the bottom of the list (and in this case the bar gives them a free drink). Again stops one player from dominating the table.
If the list got too long, doubles were declared - you were paired up with the player below (or above) you on the list.
Worked extremely well, although of course they had someone in charge of the table which helped to avoid any conflict.
