Let's face it :D :D


Nice video to watch, I remember watching this when I was 19 yrs old back on VHS tape, I was fascinated by it, but now I watch it and laugh with good memories :)

My friend, a couple of words about gambling- all casino gambling money eventually ends up with the casino. All one on one gambling money is eventually passed between the hustlers themselves until they are all broke, or lose it to a casino. Every retired wealthy person that I know gambled on just one thing- getting up and going to work the next day!

Nothing about this game is going to make anybody wealthy, at least not here in the U.S.A. from either playing in tournaments or trying to hustle. Enjoy the mystique; but don't buy into it as being any semblance of a glorious or successful life.

What makes you think that?

It isn't what it was decades ago, but who is?

Do you honestly believe this or are you just trying to say stuff so I will leave?

The fact that I have a camera in my pocket that can take video and put it on the internet. So if a good player comes into town I can search them. Or I can take a video of them.

Somewhere there’s a happy hustler with $8. Hustlin’ ain’t dead, it just doesn’t have much money in this instance.

The internet has revealed some hustlers on video, making their work difficult. A hustler can wear a physical disguise but cannot disguise their stroke when they're playing full out.

Do you honestly believe the forum cares if you or I or any other individual posts or doesn't?

Do you honestly think you can recognize a master hustler stealing some weak player's cash? If so, then you probably think the hustle pays off when the hustler makes all the balls on the table in one shot, once the bet is sufficient.

Do the great hustlers play well too?

Best hustlers I ever saw would usually be the ones getting the spot. The suckers were the usually ones giving the spot and betting other people's money.

hustling will never die

Hustling is as old as time and will be with us as long as mankind. It evolves, it changes, it never goes away.

I watched that video long ago waiting for Jimmy to admit it was all BS. He never did. My opinion, the greatest hustle he ever pulled was catching a young Ewa!

Jimmy Mataya was on here a few months ago, look it up, pretty interesting.

I learned more in a pool room in a few years than I did owning my own business for the last 35. Hustling is acting in it's purest form.

To make a million dollars hustlin' pool, you need to start with three million.

That is funny. Truth is Hustling Pool in a Bar, or Pool Room is alive in 2020. Sam stuff goes on in Bowling Alleys. Yes people Hustle at Bowling.

Hustler's hustle because of people greed.

How is hustling still alive in pool? If I see someone playing good I can take a video and post it online. How does that person hustle if I know who he is and such? One quick google away and I can find out Efren Reyes is Cesar Morales for example.

I will have to check out is hustling is a thing at bowling.
