This guy used to stop the match at crucial junctures to tell me about his visits to the brothel. It never distracted me though, I always laughed and then switched my focus back to my next shot.
whethers its making sure my ice clinks my glass, walking in their line of sight, talking, coughing, lifting chalk off the cushion, making a noise, ill do whatever it takes to put them off
One of the best stunts I pulled, was when I was playing a best of 11 frame match, against another guy I worked with. We were 4-4 and down to a black ball frame in the next. The guy I was playing was cueing up to take the black into one of the black pockets, with the cue ball about 3 foot from the black, and the black equidistant to the pocket. It was a shot he would get about 7 times out of 10. As he was cueing I decided to start emptying one of the middle pockets, right in his line of sight, as if to say to him "You won't miss that,I am getting the balls out for the next frame". This distracted him on his shot, and caused him to miss. He then shouted at me, "Thanks a lot, you did that on purpose"; or words to that affect!
I preceded to knock in a very difficult black; my opponent was destroyed mentally, and I won the next easily for a 6-4 win. I then put my hand in his back pocket and took out £50, and thanked him for his time.
