    Run the pool

    At dinner we had champagne, and were very joyous--afterward Anson ran the pool with infectious gusto, and several people who had seen me with him asked me his name.


    What does "ran the pool" mean?

    Thanx

    Re: Run the pool

    Hi Rok

    It could be
      1. A game of chance, resembling a lottery, in which the contestants put staked money into a common fund that is later paid to the winner.
      2. A fund containing all the money bet in a game of chance or on the outcome of an event.
