Who pays the time?
 
I am presenting this as a WWYD even though there is not a pool table and a layout of balls. I am going to present a situation that occurred at Red Shoes pool room in Alsip, Illinois last night. Two seasoned one-pocket players were gambling for $50 a game. There was $100 posted by both players for a total of $200. After nearly 5 hours and 14 games of one-pocket the two players were dead even. There was to be one more game of one-pocket. One player wanted to play for the $100. The other player wanted to play for "$50 and the time." Both players agreed to play for "$50 and the time."

The game was won by the player who wanted to play for "$50 and the time." Anyone who has ever bet a pickle or two knows the answer to this question. Who pays the time? :confused:

If you are playing for $50 and the time, then the loser pays the time plus $50, of course.

An old guy (probably 40 or so) was in Lakewood Family Billiards practicing One Pocket. Us young guys were sitting there watching him hit them, and one said Whitey you should ask him to play, I was 18. So I did, and I bet he thought he could beat any kid at OP. One game I especially remember for it was a down table game in which he had all the banks to my hole sewed up. But, I did a combination bank off the head rail with good separation between balls, then I did another very similar combination bank in session, and he quit after that game.
He did not pay me for the last game, but instead went up to pay for the table and that came out of my last game win, I paid for all his practice time, and our match time, which was done after 4 games, not to long. Oh well, I liked sticking it to him with those combination banks! Whitey

I am interested in seeing what the answer is to your question! thanks, for the thread!

Nits and Weasels will never pay your time.

Easy answer.. The winner of the last game should pick up the $200 stake money and hand the loser back 50 out of it, and say good game and walk out.. It's irrelevant if the time was on a twenty dollar special or if it was $170 or whatever, the loser would pay that also..

Loser obviously pays 50.00 plus pays the time for both players. If they are truly "seasoned" players this has had to come up before...lol So, I would pay my own time and I would never play that nit again...

if you specifically played for the time that was part of the bet. are people stupid or what.

it depends on the local custom in the room. in some the winners always pay, and some only if you win a lot or bust the guy.

and

some you pay your own as some players have a monthly rate and have paid their own time before the game even started.

but if it bothers you, state at the start what is expected of each player.

The winner always pays the time if the time is more than you won you should have bet more !!!

Yes, I don't get that there could be any confusion about this, since it was spelled out prior to the last game.
