As they tour pool halls, Eddie teaches Vincent the tricks of scamming, but he eventually grows frustrated with Vincent's showboat antics, leading to an argument and a falling-out. Eddie takes up playing again and soon crosses paths with Vincent as an opponent.

For instance, the cinematography and the directing were AWESOME (what else did you expect from Scorsese?) and some of the scenes really were sweeter than sweets.
