Definition of Hustler
Hustler is a billiards slang term that is a part of Gambling and Betting Terminology.
Hustler is a term that is assigned to a billiard player who exploits less savvy and less skilled players and other gullible gamblers with the intention of making a financial gain. A hustler lacks ethics in general.
A hustler intentionally tricks or misleads others about their true ability. They act less skilled than they really are so that people will gamble a certain way, or so that lesser skilled players are more likely to enter in to a bet with them. Then when they actually play, the hustler plays at their true skill level and wins.
