Im finding it hard to find a game name for this type of thing...  It is the also perhaps it is being a loser on so many levels that one word cant describe it..

There is the gambling sin of not honoring the bet part... but then to hang around and pretend like it never happened... I mean it is like a person who is lying and thinks that people are believing him and keep it up even after they have been exposed... But they figure if they just insist that they dont need to pay up... And then want to be taken seriously or acknowledged as if it never happened...

I think Piker is the closest thing so far...

been  few months and this fool is still trying to pretend like the bet never happen...  He refuses to honor the bet and basically is trying to act that the team he wagered on never lost...

some people call him the biggest pathological liar they know...  but one would think among gamblers the simpleconcept of paying up on a lost wager would be such a simple thing to do and understand..

obvious not a real gambler, I thats why I asked the question on this site of real gamblers...

Weasel is a good word...  He is definitely weaseling out of the bet and trying to pretend like he never lost so he does not need to honor the terms of the bet that ironically he constructed...

I think gamblers everywhere have had to deal with spineless, lying "Weasels" in our life...

Any more ideas of Gambler lingo of what to call a guy like this?

The "chump" comes back acting like the bet never happened...

I mean you would think most people that dont pay on bets just disappear...  But this acting like it never happened is a new one for me...

i would call the guy "a fuckin goof" an old buddy of mine did some time, and said this is pretty much the worst thing you can say to some one there. if you said that to someone, you better have your hands out of your pockets.

sounds like fighting words...  funny thing is that the guy has a history of acting tough when his crew is around knowing that they will jump in and bail him out...

funny thing is this fool tries to put me down every chance he gets because I simply bring up the fact that keeps trying to act like the bet never happened...

The same guy actually tried to go tout claiming that people should follow his picks...

and then when someone called him out on it he set up a picking challenge...

I tried to tell everyone that based on his history he would not pay...  So he started off hot and talked alot of crap... but once he started losing he tried to disappear... and now he has this big story about why he was gone and basically is saying that the challenge no longer counts...

It is funny that people even thought that he would honor a bet... I tried to tell people about his past... but people have to learn the hard way I guess...

a more compelling idea is to maybe search for a term that applies...

to an individual that fails to identify ...the person that is likely to not honor a debt....then makes a wager with this person....then obsesses with receiving a payment...that the other guy never intended to pay in the first place...then making himself out to be a "victim" ...rather than move the darn on....
     * everybody has done this a few times surely...but some seem to do it more than others

to "welsh/welch".....brings up an interesting topic

casually used terms thought by many to not be offensive....but might piss off the 'targeted' group  

person down....usually old farts throw this one out
indian giver...common and very ironic
gypped....very common.....but the gypsies were usually thieves weren't they?....
chinese fire drill.....indian burn..+++

*a few best for the white man to simply avoid....

boy...guilty here....although maybe not intended to harm...when directed in the direction of a grown black man....even something like "boy you got your behind beat" ....after losing a game...bet...whatever....even though you may say it to everybody....the black man may not like it....as it refers back to slavery days when a black man was not considered a "man".....equal to a white man....but still stuck at "boy" stage.....wow ....although many black dudes use it still among each other (like the N word.....just avoid OK?) 

cotton-pickin....as in "your out of your 'cotton-pickin' mind".....

oriental....some asians may use this themselves...but usually refers to an object...like a rug

mulatto..since derived from came an animal reference (mule)....just avoid 

since the Welsh.....were the earliest ....recorded anyway... inhabitants of (what is now) Great Britain ...they may get really pissed off at the suggestion they are inferior to the English....and likely to not be trusted
    *the term has also been used to the English bookmakers that fled (often) to Wales in the 18-19th centuries .....to avoid paying

it might have grown legs with the idea that the Celtic people consider this life to be simply a beginning of many others.....so if they can't pay you in 'this life'.....they should be surely able to pay in this NEXT one....
     *so no garbage you wouldn't want to bet with these people

As gamblers we have all been through having someone make a bet, and if they win are willing to collect what ever is coming to them...  But when they lose, they refuse to honor the bet...

maybe they disappear for a while, and then try to pretend like it never happened... but in the end Im trying to remember what this type of person is called in our world of gamblers....

The word "Welsh" come to mind, but I think that is kinda of derogatory against a type of people and I don't want  the "RichardA/Scal" race trolls making this their issue...  This thread is for gamblers....

Anyone know some good gambler lingo for names that we call this type of person?
