Definition of Doing Business

Doing Business is a billiards slang term that is a part of Gambling and Betting Terminology.

When a billiard player is found to be doing business, he or she is found to be in collusion with each other for the purpose of financial gain. One player agrees to lose intentionally, and thus, all those in collusion know who to bet on so that they are guaranteed a win. The losing player generally takes a percentage of all proceeds gained by those involved in the collusion in exchange for his or her throwing of the match.

See: business, dump, pitching, catching, pitcher, catcher, hustle, gapper for more on the meaning of "Doing Business".

Doing Business - Usage

The outcome of that match seems very strange based on the odds and on the two player's prior performance. It is possible that the two players are doing business here at this tournament, which would explain the strange outcome.
