Domino Players Don’t Talk Trash

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Dominos can be a dirty game, but according to one professional player, you better earn your black and white stripes if you want to talk trash.

That’s the word from Jay King, founder of the Professional Domino Association (PDA), who says games are usually “quiet and intense,” with only rookie players resorting to intimidation and trash-talking tactics.

The PDA just finished its Tournament of Champions this past Saturday (Sept. 22), and King remarks that the professionals always play fair because “they know everyone loses and rookies have respect for the pros.”

The domino demon says he saw one player start a game with trash talk, but couldn’t back up his tile tirade, and ended up losing three games to a rookie.

Kings says, “To be one of the great players, you only have to win 60 percent of the time. Even the best player of the league loses. It’s about strategizing.”
