Pool hustling is dead.

Not the hustlers, just the hustle. As dead as setting type.

The Internet didn’t help. Time was, a player would score big in, say, Cheyenne, Wyo., and by the time word got out over the pool transom, the hustler was already in Lexington, Ky., or Laredo, Tex. But then came the popular online forum AZBilliards.com. Suddenly a player would score big and his exploits would be publicized by sunrise.

Hard to find a mark in the age of the internet.
