One of the things you have to learn if you're gonna play pool, is match negotiation. No matter how well you play, you can make a bad match-up, and have absolutely no chance of winning. There are many humorous stories about this, but I once watched two good players negotiate for about 40 minutes. One wanted the free eight, and stated reason after reason why he should get it. The other player refuted each of his reason's with what he thought was irrefutable logic. Finally, the player relented and said "okay, I'll give you the eight". Only to have the first player respond "Then how about the break". This broke everyone up. ****Lester****
