Can’t decide whether to be a card shark or a pool hustler? I know. It’s a tough decision. Both careers let you have a cool nickname. “Amarillo Slim.” “Minnesota Fats.” “The Dream Crusher.” “Fast Eddie.”
Both give you an excuse to hang out in bars all night. Either could land you on ESPN. The pots are richer in poker, but more women are willing to play pool with a guy. Tough decision.
So try this: Poker Pool. The peanut butter cup of games, it’s two great games that play great together.
Using a special set of balls decorated with eights thru aces of hearts and spades, and a joker “wild card”, the object is to shoot the best poker hand. Two, three, or four players can compete at a time in a number of card games including Draw Poker, Stud Poker, and 21.
Think you’ve mastered billiards? Test your shot-making ability from 9-ball, your strategies from 8-ball, and your skills from one pocket. It’s a whole different ball game.
Speaking of game… as I’ve mentioned before: pool is a great way to break the ice with the ladies. So grab your balls, head down to the bar, and show ’em something new and different.
