Other : * Create timelines, both textual and graphical. See link for various guidelines and examples. We need an overall one for cue sports generally, and more specific ones as we drill down into more specific topics (timeline of nine-ball, timeline of Willie Mosconi's career, etc.).
Form sections: Exhibition game needs section on cue sports; could later form a new article with "Main article..." xref to it. What other general articles need cue sports sections?

Can anyone explain how this works? I mean, if I entered into a verbal agreement with a stranger in a pool hall, that the loser would pay the winner money, and anything unexpected happened (or even if I just won fair and square), I severely doubt that person would pay when they could just as easily walk away without paying. There's no way to enforce payment, as gambling isn't legal anyway, and you can't prove you had any form of binding agreement.

It's called getting whooped in the parking lot of the bar, and it could happen if you refuse to pay the bar patron you just reverse hustled.
Well, go trying welching on a bet a dingey pool hall and see what happens. PS: Needless to say, hustling itself carries similar risks, since people don't like being tricked out of their money. — SMcCandlish [talk] [cont] ‹(-¿-)› 06:13, 27 September 2007 (UTC)
If it were possible to get ill-gotten money out of someone by force, why not skip the hustle and just mug them? I'm not understanding why you'd go to the trouble of playing a game with someone when there's no way they'd pay up without being illegally forced. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 03:41, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
A bet is honor binding and there's peer pressure. If you went to a seedy pool hall/bar and refused to pay, you'd waive your welcome there, depending on the bar owner and patrons. You lost "fair and square" and didn't honor your bet. Keep in mind that you are a guest in that bar and most owners have the right to refuse your patronage. It's likely the hustler is a more regular source of income than you are as well. Besides that, the hustler could be a very powerful goon (or have one with him for protection). You can claim assault after he punches you in the face. but how many patrons will testify for the bet-breaking newbie? Isandriel (talk) 16:35, 13 September 2008 (UTC)
Resolved:Added to relevant disambig pages; not relevant here.
In hip hop culture a Hustling can just mean "selling things" these things could be illeagal, or they could be found objects and trash. Hustling is making a living in any way that you can. Is there room for this definition here?
Or just a huge link repository. I'm hesitant about removing some of it since it is such a neat list but wholly unnecessary. We could cut the gristle and it wouldn't hurt the article's integrity. Thoughts? Stateofyolandia (talk) 10:51, 18 April 2013 (UTC)
