your post above speaks of arties PLAY not stroke. thats how I came to my conclusion.
at the skill level artie played in his prime he obviously could get the job done with the stroke he had.
i guess he could have hustled you since you were not impressed with his presence or stroke
and if you two gambled ( artie in his prime/ you in yours) i would bet on artie as much as you would offer as a side bet
but you are entitled to your opinion
Yes, I spoke of his play.
But do you really think I wasn’t also observing everything else about his game?
And though you say you’d bet on Artie I kinda doubt you’d bet on much of anything. Regardless, I didn’t live in a pool room and wasn’t a professional gambler, so your fantasy bet would have been a lock.
