In form, it was extremely well crafted, exhibiting a level of writing far beyond the typical undergraduate. In substance, it did a superb job of analyzing the text and offered a number of trenchant insights. There was only one problem: It markedly exceeded the quality of any other assignment the student had submitted all semester. She used several plagiarism-detection programs to determine if the student had cut and pasted text from another source, but each of these searches turned up nothing. She asked him point blank, "Did you write this, or did someone else write it for you? He had downloadd the custom-written paper from an online essay-writing service. The teacher believed this conduct represented a serious breach of academic ethics.
If I start off, 'Well, I want to win a few games,' once I win a few games, what happens? You let up. I've achieved my goal. It's hard to get remotivated again. The real hucksters are motivated from the start. It's not my nature, it's not me. I'm a softie. But if you want to survive among other people like that, that's what you have to learn. You had money or you didn't. That's why people can't identify with all the things that we did. Because they weren't under those kinds of pressures.
You know. Being on the road, busted, hungry. It's cold outside. Your feet are wet, OK?
No place to sleep. What are you gonna do? Are you gonna take the moral high ground? You might, that night. The next night. There's a practice called dumping, when a player has a backer who puts up the money for him and then loses on purpose and splits the money with his opponent.
A lot of hustlers made their living that way.
Only a few times, which is. Honest to God, believe me when I tell you. I don't like it. It don't make me feel good. Even the money when you get it, it's like tainted money, you know? You make up reasons to do it.
Freddy watched. Gene Skinner, the Fullerton Kid, an all-around great pool player, finally noticed him and took him under his wing. Freddy's pool game improved more in a week than it had in 15 years. In , when he was 30, he came in fifth in the one-pocket division of the World's All Around Pocket Billiard Championship Tournament, much to the astonishment of the pool world.
Freddy moved to Hollywood. He loved it. He got a backer, a producer of pornos named Mike Weldon. He sat in on a shoot once, but was asked to leave because he started laughing.
He wore purple polyester pants and Indian print shirts. Sometimes he was known as Freddy the Hippie.
He moved back to Chicago only at the behest of Artie Bodendorfer, a hustler who'd just bought Bensinger's and who paid for his ticket back three times, because Freddy blew the first two checks so he could stir up business.
As he moved into his 30s, Freddy grew philosophical. I said, 'You know, people have been having kids for thousands and thousands of years. There must be something to it. So I spotted my wife. I said, 'I'll take her. She was living in a commune in Fort Lauderdale, where Freddy liked to spend the winters. She was the commune leader's girlfriend. She was guarded at all times. She wasn't averse to leaving with Freddy. But she had guilt issues. The only way I'd ever go with you is if you kidnapped me.
They marched into the commune one morning. Sugar Shack held the hippies at bay while Freddy and Theresa grabbed her things and left. They were like little fragile birds, you know? A few days after that, she called Freddy and asked him to kidnap her again.
This time he wasn't taking any chances. They got on a plane for Chicago. It's super romantic, even though it didn't work out.
When I was in college, I was this innocent geek. I kept thinking, how will I ever top that? She's 42 now and a writer. If her life were a movie, she says, it would be called Pool Hustler's Daughter, and it would begin like this: In the summer of , the Bentivegnas were living above Kiyo's Japanese Restaurant on Clark Street, near the Century Theater and, probably not incidentally, Bensinger's.

The gunmen demanded a getaway car for themselves and four of the hostages, which the cops provided. The gunmen failed to notice it was marked. A high-speed chase ensued throughout the city, ending in a shootout in Chatham, just off the Dan Ryan. Two of the gunmen were killed.
The hostages were unharmed. The story made the front pages of both the Tribune and the Sun-Times. It's exciting.
It's over-the-top. The pool world is full of tall tales. Things are always stranger than fiction. She lived in Lincoln Park with her mother and younger brother, Dino. Freddy was on the road a lot. When he was in town, he would take her to pool rooms on Sunday afternoons. The men all ignored her. She didn't have much of a head for pool, and she didn't want to learn.
