a few names that were our targets. She immediately knew one of them and started to give us personal information about him. He will never know that he was “set up” by a friend of his without her even knowing it. It is amazing how often someone we would
meet would actually know one of the names on our list and unknowingly give
us detailed information on where to find them and how to approach them.
Sometimes our spot book wasn't up to date and there would be another place
to play in town or another player that we could key on. It didn't matter,
once we were in town for a few hours we knew we would have all the info we
would need to take off a score. This was our business and we knew it very,
very well. We got directions to where we needed to go and we headed for the
car. As I stepped out the door I could feel the flakes of snow falling and
got an instant adrenaline rush. I knew tonight everyone would be inside,
out of the weather and doing what they enjoyed most, gambling at pool.
Little did any of them know who had just come into their little town and
what was in store for the ones that would play a stranger a game of pool. I
got into the backseat of the car and started to rehearse my lines and
fantasize about winning my biggest score as we prepared to go to the nights “office” and see what our “bosses” were willing to pay us at the chance of beating us out of our money …hahaha that would be the day!
