Gigolos differ with hustlers, as they tend to only have straight sex.
Films that reference hustlers: American Heart, Milk, My Own Private Idaho, Christiane F., Transamerica
A hustler is not something you want to be.
2nd person: nuthin much, but i've got a sweet deal fo you
1st person: Fo sure?
2nd person: Hell yeah look at this watch
Then he tells a lil story bout the watch and eventually sells the watch he found for 5$ at a lil market somewhere outta town for 50$
This iz some real hustling
The Hustler will gain the confidence of the mark by playing a few casual games winning and losing where appropriate. When the Hustler believes he or she has the confidence of the mark he will put a small wager on the match IE $20. Typically the hustler will throw that game, and then bet an astronomically higher amount on the second game. A good hustler will let you win two or three times slowly upping the betting amount until he or she appears to be incredibly frustrated and puts up a bet that is too good to be true.
Hustler: Shit I lost again, man your good. I got 20 bucks that says you can't win the next game.
The Mark: Your on.
In the Long Con the Hustler would attempt to drag this out for a couple of games building the dollar amount by 10 or 20 at a time. This would really build the confidence of the mark so that when the hustler actually puts up a thousand dollar game the mark is very confident that they will beat them.
