Fun Fact: Titanic Thompson was the inspiration for the character Sky Masterson from the short story "The Idyll of Miss Sarah Brown" by Damon Runyon. Sky was also a character in the musical Guys and Dolls which was based on several Runyon short stories.

Yes I hustled someone. At collage i sucked at pool, but played enough on the dorm crap table that I could do some real shit shots that looked like trick shots. All because I knew where the soft sections of the sides where and low spots on the slate/felt that would throw off others.

Your story about playing Smash on a single Joycon makes me think of how some people in the FGC are absolutely adamant about fight sticks. There's been this long standing debate about whether or not playing on a fight stick is the ideal way to play fighting games proficiently over a pad. I've always been a firm believer that it all boils down to whatever the person is most comfortable with.

They weren't kidding about "crack shot" he once won a "double or nothing" bet that he could hit eight 50 cent pieces tossed in the air with his revolver. Then there was the time he bet he could drive a golf ball 500 yards, and did (with the wind, on a frozen lake, in the dead of winter). Guy was a legend.

Then I double the bet with a 4x4 rubik's cube annnnnnnd win tons of cash xD

I will note that betting on the Ponies is not completely random. It is one of the two most popular gambles (Poker being the other) where the gamblers bet against each other rather than the house, therefore the odds are not hedged against you by default.

It makes sense that he lost it on something that is totally random. When you can and have rigged the game for as long as him you'd want something that you could count on that wasn't, for the most part, rigged to gamble on. Knowing that there is no way you can alter the outcome for someone like that would be a nice reprieve from your normal reality.

I learned using the blue and red controller for smash ultimate, for the lols. I use cloud, corrin, lucario and marth, but I love DK Throw and the kirby suicide. I also learned using the handheld part of the system, I am used to the gamecube and the switch controller thing ( the wireless big controller, not the one you connect the blue and red controller on). I love the faces of soreness when I do that.

I Kind of have a Hustle, but I only use it at comic con or other conventions. I have been doing it since I was about 11, and I know a crap ton about comic books (at the time as I have lost track a bit as of late) and at the time gate keeping jackholes would always do the 'Fake nerd girl' BS to me so I would make them a bet. They ask me a tricky comic book question/trivia and if I got it right they would buy me a comic book and if I lost I would leave the story/stand. I got about 20 or so comics this way.

My grandfather (on dad's side of the family) was a VERY good golfer, to the point where pro golf legend Arnold Palmer asked him to go pro after golfing togetger st a carity tournament (i have the hat from this tourney). Back then pro golfers didnt really make much until they were getting endorsement deals. My Grampas job doing drywall paid better and he had a family to feed, so he ignored Arnolds advice. Instead, my grandfather became a huge golf hustler. Read below for a long story of triumph. Our local course was having neighborhoods constructed around it, which my grandad did the drywall for. He'd ask the homeowners, home builders and other subcontractors for tips about "that impossible golf course!". The course is notoriously easy, so theyd all assume he was just shit at golf. Once he sensed that they thought him a shit golfer, he'd challenge them to a game. The first 3 holes, he'd always "feed the birds" by shanking some shots, cursing, throwing clubs, all that good stuff he'd lose 1-5 bucks on each of the first couple holes. Then for the final 15, he would clean mother fuckers out. This happened so often that people avoided going to the course, making it nearly go out of business. the owner got fed up with my gramps and threatened to ban him. Grampa scotty said "well, how about i buy it from you instead?". He had saved ALL of his golf winnings, and bought the course with them. Rip scotty, im so sorry i was only 1 year old when you passed.

The original question to far away Nisha whether she has ever hustled anyone. I accidentally did once. I was a pretty good pool player back in the day, and I went into this seedy bar and put my money on the table. The guy I played had been holding the table for several games, and since I was a stranger he asked if I was any good, and I answered honestly that I was ok. Then I ran the table down to the 8 ball and took a couple of tries to sink it, but he still had several balls on the table. The place was seedy enough that I was nervous that I had pissed of the wrong guy, so I threw the next game and said that I was hot and cold, so no egos were hurt. The truth was that I grew up with a pool table and I played a lot. And at the time, I was in the US army and played pool in the barracks regularly. I never thought of myself as "good," but in hindsight, I probably was.
