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.
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.
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.
