Default Gambling question

Ok player 1 is in action with player 2. Player 1 is giving up 10-6. Player 1 has a sidebet with railbird 1 (giving 4/1 odds cheap 10/40). Each player owes a ball in the course of the game. Player 1 gets a shot and runs 10 balls. Both he and his opponent sleep the owed ball and agree the game is over after the 10th ball is made. Both player 2 and railbird 1 pay off. Player 2 quits.

It is 15 minutes later. Player 1 is getting ready to play a new challenger Railbird 2 mentions that both guys slept the owed ball from that last game. Railbird 1 overhears this and now says player 1 should have lost the game and demands to be paid his 40.

You are player 1. Or you are the judge, whatever. What happens?
Mitch needs to remember to play the score and that it's better to win than to look like a hero.
