If he doesn't care about his wallet, I can't blame the others for feeling the same way. He set himself up IMO.

I have to go along with Todd on this one. I didn't always believe this way, but in years I have changed my mind. People do things because there is some sort of pay off for it, even the dumb shit. SOmebody is going to get it, it may as well be the pool room.

Lyn,
it is for u.hot news.today Mich Ellerman from phoenix came to vegas played 9ball with walter Glass,gave walter 8 ,race to 15 for 1000 $.Mich beat walter.

Walter's usual backer? I watched Walter give away a match with Darren at Rumrunner's in March. Couldn't believe he let Walter get drunk on his dollar while gambling! Oh well, a fool and his....... Thanks for the heads up.

If the guy had any real friends they would have tried to stop this.

Unfortunately he has no friends at the Cue Club. Only people with crocodile tears and full pockets. I must admit it is hard not to like him when he's sober. He's a good "egg".

The incident I saw yesterday shook me up and I left the place while the drama was still going on. I was saddend to see an intoxicated man taken advantage of. I am not mentioning the name of this player and many regulars to the cue club in Las Vegas know the name of this individual. He is a rich man and a very strong player both in one pocket and 9 ball and usually others negotiate with him for spot.He says that money is nothing for him and it is only 00000s to him.After 2 weeks he returned to the pool room and his presence was immediately made known by his loud utterences on top of his voice.he started with his usual shouts of profanity including telling the people to s.. his....d etc.He had 4 men and one women accompany and I later found out that he met them in a local bar and brought them with him. I do not think that he knows that they are gangsters.In the begining it was amusing to listen to his utterances on top of his voice with now and then roaring like a Lion, howling like a keyote etc.The show began and the people started gathering around the table 7 & 8.There were nearly 25 sweaters around.Everybody knows it is a pay day to everybody and some will go home with thousands of $.There was a pool league tournament was also going on there that time. There was lot of woofing and lots of hundred dollar bills thrown on the table and lots of debates,arguments between the challengers and this rich man.The people that came in with this rich man were west side gangsters ' Bloods ' and except I and my friend no one in the room knows that those guys are ' Bloods'. One guy entered into flipping the coin contest with the rich man and this guy quickly won three flips in a row for huge amount and then left the place to return later.After 2-3 hours woofing,profanity finally one guy matched uo to play one pocket game race to three.The rich man gave the guy a spot 10-7.The rich man was staggering and few times fell on the next table.several time when it was his turn to shoot he left the cue on the table stands there leaning on the table and sleeps for 30 seconds to a minute and then wakes up and shoots .He then asks the rail for side bets of 1000 $.The story goes on.I could not take it and left the place.


IN MY OPINION ,taking the money from totally intoxicated person is like having sex with a 5 year old child or with a dead person.It is wrong.
I also BELIEVE that gambling with a minor can and will be construed as 'contributing to the delinquency of a minor'.It is wrong.:angry:



Sounds like my old buddy Tim. A guy came in the poolroom one time and had a brown paper bag full of money and threw it on the table and wanted to gamble. So Tim went to his car and came back with a freakin 30-gal trash bag full of money and threw it on the table and said......ok i'll gamble.
LOL=))
