Default Pool Know It Alls

Is your pool room full of guys who have been there every day for 40 years or some place just like it?
They sit around all day, waiting on a weaker player to come in, to win 10 dollars off of.
They knock every body in the room , knock any action that might be about to happen, and know all the ins and outs of the road , even though they have never left town for more than 3 hours, in the last 50 years.
They have never been beaten by anybody unless they were setting them up.
If you need some of these guys , my pool room has an overload, there are 20 of them there almost any given day and they have all told the same stories for 40 years and I am tired of them , please send a few of yours to us ,and we will ship some of ours to you , at least you can hear a couple of new flabbergasters to chuckle at.
Who knows maybe they will get off their feet at your place and lose 20 bucks and sit down and sulk for a year or two, like they do here.

Your PR isn't unique! Any room that has regs over 60, will have similar MO's

But, guys that went around, 'under the radar' there entire life, will eventually, when age catches up to them, will pull the covers off themselves out of just being bored!

Amen!!! Lol. Let’s not forget that although they have spent a majority of their life in the pool room as a knocker, they will still carry on, tell, eat potato chips, and generally have zero awareness or courtesy if people are gambling two feet from them. Like it’s there first time. Lol

a full pool room brings in more people as many come in for the social aspect.

who goes in to a pool room with two tables going and no spectators.

the players paying time dont pay the tab for a business to survive as been seen all over the country.

It's the same shit in every game and every profession...Even in churches... At least you can say what you want, for the most part, in a pool room.. Not so at universities anymore.

Default Knockers

Five Points Bowl, El Monte, CA 1960’s through 1970’s

Lots of action with players from all over the country coming through. With lots of action, you get lots of knockers.

I think it was John ‘Popcorn’ Miller who said ‘Our knockers are so good they take road trips”.

Two of the best were Mike, the Filipino (AKA Dado), and Chuck ‘The Velvet Hammer’ Sherman. If you were nutted up and Chuck was not in with the other guy, all you had to do was look at Chuck and he would make an awful face. Then you knew you better pull up.

When I get nutted up, I double the bet.
