...without using the cue-ball.
By the third rack, I was surrounded by people trying to make a game.
....I won a couple thou...I was the best player by two balls in that joint.
Can you point out any innocent victims in this scene?
I'm not trying to stir the pot; I'm simply trying to better understand your position.
In the scenario pt109 discussed in the quote just above yours, is it your opinion that his behavior was "disgusting"?
I know what you're getting at here, Brian (at least I think I do). If you are thinking like I am, then you're thinking, "Hey, nobody INVITED all those guys to come around my table and try to take MY money" (speaking from pt109's point-of-view).
Am I correct? IMO, I do not feel like pt109 did anything disgusting. Really, it wasn't even necessarily "hustling". The action was all on the other players in the room. If they would have just kept to themselves and minded their own business, they could have went home with their own money in their wallets (unless they lost it to someone else :wink.
