Only a dimwit stands in line with a pool shot, only a dimwit would fire off a shot with the intent of hitting some one in the chest. I don't believe it happened unless everyone in the room had on helmets and were suppose to hold hands walking down the street. Oh, reverse your puncuation.

Im sorry you feel that way but I have done this on a couple of occasion when I still hustled pool. But this is a discussion forum and if you feel that everyone in the world is an Einstein, then you need to take a better look.

You know, I believe you that you got people to stand in line with a hard hit pool shot that you fired into their chest and caused them to jerk back and put balls into the pockets when you hustled pool and they paid off with a ho ho ho and a clink of glasses.

I to have a nose for picking. I also suck at pool, so I've never tried to hustle. But if I did I don't think I'd risk knocking someones teeth out for a petty trick bet.
Where did you carry out this audacious piece of poolhall showmanship and how often did you find someone stupid enough to do it to?
I was put on this earth to do a great many things..... I'm now so far behind that I don't think I'm ever going to die!

The trick where you say. I'll bet you 10 bucks the next card I turn over will be your card. Suckers take that bet everytime.

Not familiar with this one? Can someone explain? Do you turn it over after they display it?

The mark picks a card, you know what it is. You then start to take cards, one at a time from the face down deck, looking for their card, when it turns up you keep going as if you haven't spotted it. a few cards later you place the bet, they take it as you've already passed their card. you then go back through the face up cards and turn their card over, you win!

bit sketchy on the details, but I'm sure you can work it out.

Don't try this on anyone who might already know it. Once the "next card" is about to be turned over, they might just square up the pile and really mess with the outcome. Even better, if you know they know...and you smell a double cross in the works, some double lifts and second deals will help a lot. Or take the "low tech" route and force a dupe.

This was great fun up in someone's room at a recent magic convention. Each was out to try and out hustle the hustler.

I bet them I can cut a hole in my (or their) business card big enough to put over my head. Sounds impossible to most!

Sure thing. Although the video has been lost and I've yet to shoot another, I'll be happy to send the written work.
Will you walk into my parlour? said the Spider to the Fly,
Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I've a many curious things to show when you are there.

Oh no, no, said the little Fly, to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair
-can ne'er come down again.

Place a handful of change, including several pennies, on the bar, and tell someone you will bet him a dollar he can't pick up a penny from those coins.....When he does, ask him where on the coin is the word "penny"...

A couple of my faves are the 5 question bet, I do some mindreading so I enjoy doing the 'no' trick on the skeptics... its where you tell the mark they have the ability to read minds, they disagree and of coarse they want to make you look like a fool so they accept... "i shall write a word on this card, no one will see it and it is for you to read my mind and tell me what it is"... "sound fair enough? $20 bet?" you ask them " o.k. lets try, er do you know whats written on the card?" they will say "no" because they don't, and on the back of the card is written the word NO... $$$ cha ching $$$
For as long as space exists,
And living beings remain in cyclic existence,
For that long, may I too remain,
