    I understand completely. The answer is easy. If you won't take their money when they lose then don't play them for money. This goes equally for drunks and kids or anyone else for that matter. It does not make you a bad guy. You are an honest nice guy. We see things a bit differently as far as this subject goes. I just have the way I think is right to raise my kids. I could be wrong about how I go about it but it’s my way. But one thing for sure is they are never going to get hustled on a dart board!!!!!!!!!!!! They will also never act like a big baby when they lose a bet. I will have raised men when I’m done. I can live with that.

    If you’re teaching them Kirby...... I'm fine with that. Learn from the best and you cannot go wrong. When they get a little big for their britches there is not a thing in the world wrong with knocking em' down a peg or two.

    There was a LOD before the season began at the Fitz and outside of PDSL and MMDL I havent been frequenting the Fitz as much since Rhiannon was born, a younger kid tried to entice me into playing for money, I agreed and he wanted to do 10 Bulls for 10$, he told me he was pretty good (never seen him before in my life) I proceeded to throw 5 Bulls to his 1 then a 2 and 3, I had 10 Bulls and he had 4, he reminded me he had last shot because I started, I obliged and reminded him he needed to throw 3 PERFECT Darts. He didn't, he dug into his pocket pulled out a 5$ bill and 5 Ones, I told him to keep his money.

    His Buddy wanted to do it for 20$, (the kid obviosly hadn't been watching or was just a little too cocky) I took his 20$ for being stupid.

    But as a Rule of Thumb I don't play for money especially against a friend

    As a friend,I believe you have a responsibility to point out to him/her that they are drunk and u don't want to take advantage of them.If they continue to badger you into a game for money.....beat them,take the money and next time you see them buy them a drink and talk about it.If they are ticked about it,they really weren't your friend to begin with.I bet he was more ticked you wouldn't play him Frank,than if you did and took him.

    Interesting topic! I don’t like playing for money period! (except poker)Whether it’s Friends or not. Too many bad experiences with both.
    But, hypothetically, it’s been entertaining reading for a change! 8)

    Frank I would say no as well I never like to play darts against a friend for money seems as if when there is money involved people act differently your friendship seems to go out the window at that time. People seem to throw better when they are drinking I think it is a myth you can throw just as good sober. Just my opinion I am just a dart player with not many friends.

    I said yes, because I often play friends for money after league when everyone is drunk. Its usually just $5 though so its no big deal. If it was just 2 of us and I won a few in a row I'd be buying the beers.

    I like what Spin told me, take his money and then show up at his house the next morning and give it back saying......."now tell me what you've learned".

    Exactly what I would do. No if it wasn't a friend, I would take them for everything I could.
