I have a unique line of "work" where on a good night, I can make up to $1, 000, although I split my earnings 50% with my partner. My "work" nights are spent drinking and having a blast with my best friends.
My partner and I are pool hustlers, and during the time we have been partners, we have never lost a game.
Most towns this wouldn't be easy in, but we live in a town that has a big turnover of people due to the oil field, and the fact that the locals support us by not blowing our cover when we hustle up a game. A lot of our money is made on side bets the locals make during a game. I guess you could say that they are our backers.
It's quite interesting and fun!
