Very sound advice. Part of me thinks that way and then I think about it and get angry again. Its a tough pill to swallow. I did have a mini discusion with him on the spot but he was arguing about the payout and that wasn't why I was upset. I know your right. I think I just needed to blow off some steam. Also I can really discuss it with him as he is 3 1/2 hours away.
I really think one of two things happened. Either he didn't realize there was a tie until after everyone left for the pool hall or he he did but thought I had already left and just gave it to his buddy. The td did not know me personally but I was there and he did not make an announcement.
