When I was a 25 year old kid an old timer used to tell me all the time "If you want to win money at this game you need two things a guy that can't play and has money". So I play poker in the local casino and I make prop bets with people all the time like i bet $20 bucks a fly lands on my coffee cup before yours etc. Im usually attempting to set a hustle up and try and get guys to play games outside of poker, with the intention of ultimately landing on a pool table. I gave this one guy 8 to 5 and I beat him and now he wants 8 to 4 and i dont want to give it to him but im wondering if he will bite at 15 to 8 (i think he will like the way it sounds so enticing). He cannot run two balls at a time, I can run 4 or so , spot them and push balls uptable and continue. My question is for the goal of getting him to take the game vs. the pressure on me to give him half the game at 8 to 4. I offered 10 to 5 but quite honestly I dont like that game. I NEVER ever play 9ball n 8ball. Is 15 to 8 equivalent to the 8 to 5 ... the handicap chart helps but not too much in my situation. I can win a weeks salary in this game as opposed to struggling with the locals in my room and the house getting the money.
