This is truly an art form. Happens mostly playing the "old dawgs".
1. You break in 9-ball, and your opponent says "Oh great, an easy out.
2. In one-pocket, you're looking at banking a ball from your opponent's pocket to your own, and your opponent says "It might not kiss".
3. On a long shot, your opponent says "With your young eyes that's not a problem".
Done in the context of innocent player conversation, these are priceless. Designed specifically to plant the seed of doubt.
Can anybody add more? ****Lester****

Hell, Stevie Wonder could run out from here!
If you don't get out from here, somethin's wrong!
Opponent X is about to shoot a bank - turn to someone and say loudly, "X never misses these banks!"
Works with any kind of shot that you can give a label to.

I watched a game today. Two guys playing $50 a game. Every time B got to the key ball A would place the money on the rail. Probably worked 4o% ofr the time
Placing the cash on the rail should be considered a concession, equivalent to breaking down your cue. Should work 100% of the time.

Tell that to the man sharked. I completely agree. One thing I never do is referee when I was not asked to.
tsk... you won't need a map to get out from here
geeze... you get all of the rolls
Oh yeah, I can add something. How about the player who's always whining after every shot about how bad he plays? Yeah, all the way to the bank. Ha!

I was in tournament and my opponent looks at me and I said, "well, this table isn't gonna beat me today." I won and he was looking for the table reactions the entire time.
