I gotta stick up for some of the guys that DIDN'T gamble here.....
..some were still part of the pool hall culture and endearing.

Socialable Harry
...played at the Congress in Miami when it was a great action place
where Marcel Campe held court in the 60's...when ever some wanted to
just practice they'd tell him to play Harry

Half'a'buck Harold
...from Detroit...Paul Brueloff said they got busted for gambling once....
...the only ones that didn't get charged were Harold and a 13 year old girl

Some of the names from the "Shoes" (Red Shoes Billiards). Mainly Chicago area players...Bump-a-Rail, Chicken Wing (not to be confused with "Light Colored Chicken Wing" who is a different guy), DVD Larry, Scadooby, Santa Claus, Big Head Dave, Walleyed Darryl, Lotto, Smooth Stroke, Mata, Sandman, Blinking Larry, Slow Fred, Nice Dave and Creepy Steve. Now you can take the terms "Big, Little or Skinny" and put them with most of your house players. Not to mention "Occupations" such as "bus driver, pipe fitter, copper or truck driving" etc..etc.. When all else fails you can use vehicles "Pontiac John, Mustang Steve" etc..etc.. Let it be said that there is no end to the "nick names" players have. It just has to "delineate" one player from another generally without using last (or even sometimes first) names. I could give you a jillion more from my room but I have to get to work and get the room clean because I have a noon one pocket game scheduled with "Muscle Fred".

I just happened to think of one that I don't see on the list. Ernest Morgan "one arm bandit". A very treacherous man. When I was in my early twenties he invited me to dine at a local coffee shop. He wanted me to give him the five playing nine ball to set up the rail. I told him that I wanted no part of that. We had dinner and then he ordered coffee. When we went to pay the bill he only payed for the coffee. (like I should be impressed of what he did)

Anyone know him, remember him? How about it Jay H.

I had a guy in the pool room years ago named 'Royce Myers III', and I called him 'Rolls'. 'Rolls Royce' could barely make a ball, and was kind of goofy, but I always thought it was a cool nickname.

bunch of guys I played with in the past used to call me the Spider because every time I had to use the mechanical for a shot, I was utterly incompetent with the pool one so I always used a spider snooker bridge lol

Of course I knew him! Everyone did, didn't they. He was perhaps one of the best one-armed players of all time, but a complete thief.

He was actually a top player on a bar table (no problem reaching shots) and only the best bar table specialists could beat him. He used to travel up and down the West Coast booking exhibitions in bars and poolrooms. He had his own posters made up with all kinds of ballyhoo about him. I believe the cost to book him back then (the 70's) was $75 a night.

We all called him Morgan (just like the pirate of the same name) and stories about his skull duggery were legendary. He never got to me because I wouldn't let him get that close. I knew he was bad news, so I just gave him a free drink and a sandwich and sent him on his way.

After reading David Harcrow's list here are some more Shreveport nicknames...
David, I met you in Guys & Dolls (later Pockets) when Country Calvin was in town once. I always loved Calvin - great player with character too. A fine brother.
I'm the 6'6" redheaded guy that used to spend a lot of time in Guys & Dolls / Pockets.

Little Wayne - Wayne Whitman
Rhinestone - Roger Rogers
Hippie Jimmie - Jimmie Sanders
Friendly Tony - Tony Anthony (RIP)
Dancing Bear - Kenny Parr
Goldfinger - black guy that actually had a hollow gold middle finger molded from his other middle finger. Don't know how he lost the real finger.
Topwater - Gerald Jones
Shady Brady - Brady Brouton
Dr Draw - Wayne Clinton
Knoxville Bear - Eddie Taylor (RIP)

I only knew Topsy as Topsy Marlow (maybe Marla?) - never knew his initials were CJ - anyone know his name? John told me that he got his nickname because he could spin like a top on the dance floor back in his younger days.
