Trick shots /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Trick Shots and Tangent Line are synonymous, for the most part...

people walking up on shots. Like Tuesday in league I was on fire, running out racks I'm not really good enough to run. Even my draw stroke was on and accurate ( which is amazing for me). Anyway, every time I got to the nine my opponent walked on around, grabbed the rack from under the table and stood there waiting, all while I'm in my practice routine. he's a nice guy that I know, so I didn't say anything cuz I kept making them. Well, about the third time he's right in my line of sight for my shot, like a dummy I shoot anyway even though I knew if I noticed him that well I wasn't concentrating on my shot, and I shank it bad. Then he goes "oh, did I mess you up?" I just said "No, I missed it on my own. But it doesn't help me either." I did wind up winning big anyway though.
oh yeah, and I hate having to pay for stuff.

I would have asked him the first time he did this if he was conceeding. If he said "NO" then I would tell him if he did that again I will consider it that he is, and for him to put the rack down and go sit. That is a shark move, and poor sportsmanship. YMMV

Yes it is and I agree. Some may not know any better, newbies. For the most part though they do, I have shot the ball into the end rail, gambling, then told them to rack em. Either that or point my cue to their seat. lol They did know better.

People who think they are hustlers. Shark moves like, talking BS while you are shooting, or chalking right next to you while you shoot. People who quote lines from "Color of Money", "the Hustler", of "PoolHall Junkies" while you are playing them. People who critique other players and say they are inconsistent, everyone is inconsistent otherwise the same people would always win. The walking pro-shops. Oh, and loud music.:))

Hi irunraxs,

I used to hate that stuff too but came to the realization that, they can't win and need that for a crutch. Now, I just tell them their pathetic.

I try not to hate things at all now. The one thing that bothers me the most is pigion-holing a players speed. It's something I do not like to hear from someone. Then having to run tourneys and I'm forced to do the same thing I can't stand doing. I don't know?

i hate people who can beat me even though they rarely practice. i also hate the days that i leave my cue sitting lifeless in its case, not even taking it out to try to smooth my crooked stroke. im sure my cue hates that too. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

i just thought of another one! i absolutely HATE it when im playing someone and they pick up my cue to shoot with. it may be a sneaky pete, but it's the lucasi L-2000SP for crapping out loud. not exactly the sneakiest hustler cue ever. i don't know about you guys, but i've never seen a valley one-piece with mother of pearl inlays and birdseye maple.

Next time you can answer "No, I was taking a practice shot."

Technically, getting out of his chair is concession of game.
Whether in your line of sight or not.

Loud music at any time, but especially when I'm trying to shoot. However I love music and enjoy it at a reasonable volume while I play.

When I lose because of my screw up not the other player's good play. /ccboard/images/graemlins/mad.gif That goes for all competitive events not just pool.

When drunk guys come up to you in the tavern saying "I hear you're the pool shark around here. Let's play some" when all you want to do is sip your beer and watch tv

Main Entry: baize
Pronunciation: 'bAz
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle French baies, plural of baie baize, from feminine of bai bay-colored
: a coarse woolen or cotton fabric napped to imitate felt

I guess Simonis doesn't qualify for this term. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

People who luck in shots and get position on the next ball and then shake their head because they wished it hadn't happened that way when inside they're probably like Woohoo!

Fighting your way back to get on the hill with your opponent, alternate break and your opponent snaps in the 9.

Lucky 9s.

Players that don't put equipment back where it goes i.e. the rack on the rack thingy, the bridge on the bridge holder thingy, etc.

Players that after missing a shot, take the chalk back to their seat and chalk up. Um, like it's not your turn it's mine so give back the chalk!

When your opponent walks away while you're shooting to go talk to whomever, comes back and asks if they have ball in hand. Pay Attention!

Hey BTW CC, if you're ever down my way (central IL), please get a hold of me, I'd really enjoy meeting and shooting around some. I get the feeling you're quite the player. Where do you hang at? I very occasionally get up thataways.

Poor sportsmanship during a match, by either the opponent or if league play by their captain.

If your opponent touches the table that's a concession. It's no different than breaking down his cue.

Hi Crawdaddio,

Quite the player, I doubt but I can hold my own. I shoot and work up at LeisureTime Billiards home of Jesse Bowman and family. They've been pretty good to me and I repay them by charging people money. LOL I work the counter. hahaha

That's in the Quad Cities and I'm there most everynight with my family. I'd welcome you anytime to hit some One Pocket, Banks, 9 ball or 14.1 on the 9fts. The bar boxes are Diamonds till he sells them off. He's ACS you know. LOL

BTW, if anyone reading this and I owe you money? I don't have any. LOL LMAO I'll give you a pm on onepocket.org when I learn how. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Oh, just to satify the post. I don't like to be woofed at and when I agree to play, they tell me no, or they want weight. I don't mind the woof part. I like that. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Regards,

Sex on a pool table! I once tended bar way before I met my wife. Anyway, this really hot babe stayed as I closed the bar and wanted to have sex on the damm pool table. The table is located in the dang window. Sure, it was an entertaining thought but I declined. I just think some things are sacred! Still, can't believe I turned her down. You know, she never talked to me again.

Regards,

C.C.~~after she left I drank the rest of the pinapple shots and about 5 shots of crown. thank God, I got home. /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif
