US Open 9 Ball No one has won twice - 10-13-2009, 10:13 AM

This week is the US Open 9 ball. No one has won it twice. How many former winner are playing and what are their chances of getting a second win???

BTW I had a kid work for me about 10 years ago His name was Mike Pickett and the family was from Paducah Ky. but had moved to Florida. He was a real nice kid and a excellent artist who like most artist had not found his field. Something came up at work after 3 months that I liked to play pool. Mike said his dad was a real good pool Player and even made cue sticks. Turns out his dad was Mike Pickett also and was runner up to Nick Varner at the US Open in 1989. Mike Sr is a really nice guy and came to our local ball banger tournament a couple of times only because his kid worked for me. He warmed up with me showing his stuff on hard racks but leaving me enough Helen Kellers so I won more games than him. He also threw off in the tournament feeling he was taking advantage to win. They have since left town and Tommy Kennedy now lives in the same town. Tommy leaves Thursday for the Open. The fact that it is a very small town with that many world class players is amazing. Of course I am hoping Tommy Kennedy can be the first to win the US open twice. We always want our home boys to do well. BTW I live several small towns away from them.

Ok, I know you are wrong on this one. I think there may be more but since you mentioned Nick Varner. He has won the US Open twice. Actually he is the only person to have won the US Open Back to Back years. See all this traveling around finally paid off. I had the answer to something

I am pretty sure there are several who have won it twice, and I think Earl won it 3-4 times.

Didn't Varner repeat 89-90?

Buddy Hall and Nick Varner have won it twice and they usually play. That dude Strickland is playing this year and he won it 5 times. Allen Hopkins won it twice. Some others have as well.

Past winners are listed here:

My picks this year are SVB, Mika and anyone from a small island nation in asia.

Damn! That has to be a record for most responses in 4 minutes. LOL
