Nah, I just always liked my games or I didn't play. My credit has always been good, so I didn't play just because the rent was due. I always liked my games, I didn't want to give away any of my action. I have been broke many times and got money to play, but always stood good for my end if I lost. I owe no one, I've owed many, but paid all. Being a good guy is probably why I've been so lucky.
Sorry I hit one of your sore spots. You always turn vicious when somebody pokes you a little. Toughen up.
Im just trying to point out the small minded thinking that has ****ed pool up. Pool players that have screwed over backers is a big reason why it is so hard to make any money in the game. If someone is willing to put up money on me, i have way more respect for their money than i have for my own. I gamble EVERYDAY in the casino and im taking the worst of it but i know that going in. The people who bet on me or back me know that i match up good, I dont take chances for ego sake. Also people know better than to even think of asking me to do any business. Someone approaches me about that shit not only will i let everyone know about if they have a problem with it i will kick the shit out of them. Pool players who dump and screw backers over make me sick. Look who won the Action award this year at Derby City...last year he was trying to get Chris to dump Dippy... and this year people vote the same guy for the action award... thats the thinking thats wrong with pool. I learned alot of how to play the game from Ervolino but he along with alot of others( a few at least are in the one pocket hall of fame) were known dumpers etc. Look at the top 10 one pocket players in the world today, at least half of them are known to having done BUSINESS at one time or another. That mentality made of made all those i just named some quick money but it cost all them 100 times as much in the big picture. For so many pool players on here that all think they are triple smart it just proves how frigging ignorant they are. Instead of cleaning up the game/sport people turn their head as long as they get a piece of the action.
