(H&S) Hustles & Sharks - Concession

(About the Author)

Learn how to Beat the Sharks

A concession is when one player concedes the current pool game to the other player. This, believe it or not, can be used as a shark. Normally, when one player has a simple shot on the money ball, the game can be conceded. This allows the game win to be acknowledged as well as saving time by getting next game started.

Under normal circumstances, this wouldn’t be a shark. Here is how it can affect your game. Certain conditions have to be met. First of all, there must be two or three balls left on the table. At least two of them should be fairly easy to make. You know you can run out, but it might be a little tricky. Suddenly, your opponent comes up to the table and states, “That’s good for you.” He starts racking the balls for the next game.

This immediately affects y our emotions. Not having to shoot to the win is a great relief. It also sets up anticipation that you receive similar concessions in future games.

He has made you mentally prepared to expect generosity – not a good idea about any opponent. On the next game, he simply has to refuse to give the concession and your attitude is affected by this seeming betrayal.

Anything that affects your state of mind (happy or angry) affects your concentration on the next game. And don’t forget the distraction caused by the offer. Plus, there is an implication that he expects you to do you a return favor.

Response

Never take gifts from opponents. Get your mind into the game and keep it there. Whether he tries to give you the game win or asks if he has to shoot the last shot – play every game out to the bitter end.
