In pool halls across the planet, most (about 60-65%) of the players are of the male gender. There is always the normal competitive spirit that occurs between two opponents. When the dynamics of opposite sexed players are added, it becomes much easier to be a railbird rather than be deeply mired in the close competitive environment of the pool table.
A female drop-dead gorgeous hustler with curvy body parts almost falling out of barely adequate restraints are more an adolescent’s fantasy than any chance of actually occurring.
Let’s pull back everyone’s imagination and ground the information about this sharking trick in some reality. Most women apply a certain amount of femininity to the match. And that has a greater or lesser impact, based on the other player’s experience with the opposite sex.
It is also rare to find a well-trained female gamesman (gameswoman). They are out there but are well camouflaged. These experts flirt through the billiard gods universe leaving no ripples and very little evidence of their existence. Fortunately for so many male players, gameswomen tend to limit their talents to the general playfulness of social environments and do not apply their skills with the ruthlessness so often seen by male hustlers.
Nonetheless, any competent female player (B level or higher) can easily adjust the odds of winning, just as a matter of normal competition. Young guys with little experience interacting with women are much more susceptible, but even old geezers are not above being affected by an innocent-appearing smile.
Any female pool player, who applies her natural advantages as tools in the battle of the sexes, can be distracting on multiple levels. Even dialed down for public consumption, the guy is constantly aware of her presence, cutting back the quality of his game focus. Age and beauty are actually immaterial. It is the manners and attitude that determine the effectiveness.
Some of the tools women use around the pool table include:
- Clothes (sweaters, pants, tops, shorts, dresses – both long and short, etc.
- High heels
- Earrings & necklaces
- Hair styles
And, of course, there are the delivery mechanisms:
A gameswoman carefully observes your reactions. When the areas of your attention are identified, additional efforts continuously present the most effective distraction.
There is not going to be much you can do to stop a skilled gameswoman from using her tools and tricks. Guys are pretty much victims in the battles between the sexes.
Attempts to become a misogynist (woman-hater) for the duration of the match are usually short-circuited by a smile or pleasant compliment.
The best thing you can do is concentrate on winning as quickly as possible. Stay as far away from her as the playing area allows. Concentrate your attention on the pool table and what is happening there. Avoid eye contact, keep communications minimized, and pay attention to the game. After the competition, you can return to being a normal person.
