View Full Version : Getting Hustled!



06-07-2002, 03:11 PM
Howdy everybody.....So, the other day I was playing this guy in a bar, we were playing cheap, 5 dollars a game nine ball.....I was kicking this guys butt really bad I was up on him $50 in about an hour, so he says to me "We need to even up this game, I don't stand a chance" So I say OK, this is what we will do, we will bet $10 a game so you can get your money back faster /ccboard/images/icons/smile.gif AND HE SAID YES!!!!! Now, this guy was not even drunk or anything, he just had a brain fart or something, then later he finally smarts up when he is down $100.00 he realized that he just did something really stupid so we stopped.....I am not a hustler or anything I didn't even ask this guy to play, I am only 19 and not even supposed to be in a bar I just wanted to play a few games of pool, so that is my little story, I would like to know from all of you, What is the best hustle that anybody has done to you, or that you have heard of in the past?

Shame on you Smiddy! Don't you feel even a little bit bad about taking advantage of someone who is obviously not on a level field? /ccboard/images/icons/smile.gif LOL For my favorites, see the 'funny stories' (or something like that) thread.

I'm not sure your story is one that is an example of getting hustled.

I saw Nick Varner play one pocket against a guy opposite handed. Only the guy was left handed to start with. Nick was still giving the guy a spot and was loosing big time..

Nick ended up having to call home for more cash.. as far as I know, Nick never found out.. that he was hustled. This is the trade mark of a good hustler.. the mark never knows..
its much safer that way in the long run.. If done right. the only way you might know if you have been hustled is if you loose money..

The hustler will always be the one that raises the bet or throws off to suck u in the game, and keep u playing his game . You may have won this time ,but don't count on it next time. A true hustler never shows his colors or just how awesome he really is , HUSTLERS ARE ALOT DIFFERENT FROM GAMBLERS IN THIS GAME''''''Hustlers keep u hanging , gamblers play to win because ther getting stakedby some one else . Hustling is a dangerous job unlike gambling where u play to win ,hustling is throwing off to win ,threr's a big difference ....... The next time,play your game not his ,if he wins then you've learned a lesson .LOOK AT IT THIS WAY AT LEAST U GOT YOUR MONEY ,There are alot of players out ther who gamble and hustle for big $$dollaz$$ AND NEVER SEE ONE NICKEL ,IVE BEENTHERE. BEST REGARDS TO SEATTLE SMIDDY ,$$$$JASON THE TWISTER LAURIA$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Jason, when you're playing on someone else's money, I don't believe you're really gambling. Somebody is, but it's not the player.

Your right, I agree the stake horse puts up the money and takes the fall ,and if the player wins he gets a cut ..I'm HOPING I'LL MAKE A GAME THAT I CAN WIN . BEST REGARDS TO VAPROS '''''$$$$$$JASON THE TWISTERLAURIA$$

True, but if he played pool like he played baseball, I don't think that will be a problem!!! /ccboard/images/icons/wink.gif

Here is a link to a Michael Jordan gambling story in today's Washington Post

Hi PQQLK9,

No doubt the man has tons of cash. He couldn't spend it in a lifetime. There's two things I'd like to point out. Many have lost big money gambling at the casinos but the key thing is. The casino never closes and they have plenty of money.

The second being, Black Jack is as most casino games a rollercoaster ride. You get 2 out of 10 shoes that are in your favor. Those 2 shoes where ever they come up you have to get back to even and make money. You do this through doubing down and splitting hands. The second way is through progressive betting.

The trouble with most people is they don't have the money to fade the 8 bad shoes. They just hope it changes soon, or they get that lucky shoe right away. The other problem is they don't know when to leave. The casino has no clocks and the atmosphere is set in colors that are pleasing to the eye to mentally keep you there.

Jordan may bet it up but I can't throw stones. The man worked for his money and deserves to spend it the way he wants. I feel the news people could sell news in a better light concerning our sports heros.

Thank you for the article. It was interesting to say the least.

Regards,

That's a superb article. Very well written. Lots of insight into His Airness' latest comeback and his massive personality.

MM...only four days younger than MJ so nobody call him old!
