Part-time amateurs are no match for full-time professionals. Most hustling is about full-timers luring part-timers to gamble with them. This foam of manipulation often comes cloaked in flattery. The full-time professional poker player will play in the casino, always on the lookout for businessmen at the table who he can lure to a private joint like ours. If one spends time in a billiard hall, where many of the top professional poker players cut their teeth, you will learn how it works, if have any grift sense at all. It seems to me, this side of hustling is as patter is to a magic experiment; it is a play to emotions - not intelligence - as all good confidence men know. So why don't you boys be nice? Smile
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Good post above tommy, spot on as to how grift sense works...but...far as being nice, gee whiz, I thought I was being nice.

Oh well, back to the pool hall for retraning.

Las Vegas is the world heavyweight champion of sycophants. One only needs to look at how they try to lure whales, with free flights on Gulfstream jets, lavish hotel suites and even partial forgiveness of their losses, to see that. Casinos are very inventive in schemes to allure and seduce sportsmen for profit.
