Hustle some

Win a game of pool  

This one can be tricky. First you have to find a bar; there is one right next to Grove Street. Drive down the street from CJ's house. Across the first intersection, on the right, is a bar that can be entered indicated by the yellow cone. In the left side back of the bar are two pool tables with a man standing beside one. Enter a wager with him and play the best you can; his AI capabilities are god-like, but he can make simple errors. Keep betting only $50 at a time so you don't go broke, and hope the AI pockets the black 8 out of turn.

Easy bet $500 if you win, leave happy with $1,000 and an achievement, if you don't well just beat the shit outta pool hustlin guy (and everyone else) with your new pool cue. End result the same either way you feel happy :)

I had trouble getting the game to register I won, I finally got the achievement when my opponent hit the 8 ball in when he still had other balls out.

It's not hard at all if you know how to play pool in real life. Did it on 2nd attempt, the 1st I sucked since I was struggling how to properly adjust power of the hit.

If you can't beat him the first try, then 9/10 times he'll pocket the black ball early the next try.

The power of the hits is determined on how far back CJ is pulling his arm back, on your shot he is always pulling his arm back and pushing back in.

Does anyone know why I can't be signed into Xbox live while playing this game?I'm connected as soon as I exit but when I'm playing it just says lost connection even though I have a connection.any ideas?

Wow very easy I never had a turn, the first game I played and he pockets the black ball. HA! I did this at the San Fierro bar down the street from the gym. I never went into a bar until I seen the yellow cone LOL. And IDK #18 I can sign in with Xbox Live while playing the game with no trouble.

Broken minigame, shots that are power shots on one hit are just taps the next, and it's infuriating when he does it when you're about to pot the black and win the game. FFS
