I get the refusal for payment idea here...

But when I hear this I think of someone who has purchased or charged something under false pretenses...  Stiffing someone else with the bill...

Welcher sounds derogatory to the Welsh...  Im looking for something that is that label that doesn't just use a race/culture to define it...

Any  other ideas?

I agree that this guy is all of those things...

but it just describes a person with no honor...

I am looking for a word to describe the choice specifically not try to pretend like the bet never happened after they lose....

Im sure more then one person would want to trunk slam this type of guy...

Good description for what we as gamblers would want to do with a character like this...  But I guess I am looking for a word to describe this type of person that does not honor bets they make... But rather then disappearing and never coming back, they hang around and pretend like the bet never happened hoping people will forget...

Its kinda of a mix of being a pathological liar with no honor, then you come back and continue being a liar hoping that no one will notice...

Nice nursery rhyme...  So should we call this type of guy a "taffy"?

It is difficult to think of another word then the term "Welsh" as it is commonly used is the best description...  Technically this is like someone who would "welsh" on a promise...

I never thought about the getting "gpyted" as in getting ripped of as referring to gyptsies...

but you are correct...


Piker is an interesting angle... I had to look it up as I am not familiar with the term...

Stiff (They deserve to be stiff when buried 6 feet under)

Reneger (As InternetTuffGuy inferred, Scalabrine thinks this is being called black again)



I dont think it has anything to do with welches grape juice... lol..

This was not a case of betting on credit tho...  but we have all been there before from pathological liars who make bets on credit saying they are "good for it"...

But most of the times these guys take the money and run...  Im looking for the type of guy who returns and hangs around, trying to pretend that he never made the bet... and even in the face of people confronting him on it, he refuses to acknowledge what happened...

This is a different type of "low life" that I am trying to figure out an appropriate word to describe this type of person...

Recently though, he seems to have one "bff" who is supporting the "deadbeat/welcher/stiff/renegar" on his trying to play it off as if he never made the bet...

everyone else is pointing out the bet not being honored... but rumors are that perhaps the two are more then friends

At least that what it seems with him not wanting his "bff" to disappear...  I mean if it was uncomfortable with guy trying to play off the bet, the whole "bro-mance"  between these two guys just makes the uncomfortableness way worse...

I think it is one thing to argue the terms of the bet, or say it was unfair... but I think the terms and outcome of the bet were pretty clear and the guy just does not have the character and basic gambler etiquette to pay up and honor the bet...

we have all been there with this type of person... but what this low life is doing is just pathetic...
