    Do you play a friend for money, even though you know he has drank to much, and is below his normal level of shooting?
    Yes, why not, it's his own fault

    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! Cool

    Here is just a hypothetical question. I was talking to other players, and asked them this question.

    When playing a friend for money, do you continue to play him, when he is obviously not throwing at his level, due to drinking.

    I say no you don't. A true friend would never take advantage of a friend like that.
    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.
