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

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.
