Best One-Handed Players - 12-02-2011, 06:08 AM

I think we've all seen or heard of some great one-handed players. Personally, one of the best I ever saw was Ernie Morgan "The One Armed Bandit. " I saw him do an exhibition at the USF Student Union pool room back in the early 70's. I think he's got his bridge hand caught in a saw and lost some or all of his fingers. So he shot with a shorty cue and walked around the table like he was spear fishing. Ran *a lot* of balls that way. Then of course there are the stories of Ronnie Allen, Eddie Taylor, and Bucktooth. More recently, George Breedlove at the DCC put on a one-handed clinic.

So who is the best one-handed player, one-pocket or otherwise, that you've seen?

Amazing stuff.

How about Scott Simonetti from NJ/NY Area? - 12-02-2011, 06:44 AM

Scott Simonetti - Last year in the Tri-State tour finished 2nd in overall points.

I would love to see a tournament for guys like this!

I bet we would all learn alot about pool & Heart watching them play against each other.

Cue B - Paul F. Mottey 9/90
Break - Paul Fanelli

I don't usually run over 4 balls but when I do watch out :-)

There is 3 types of people in this world.

1- People who make things happen

2- People who watch things happen

3- And people who say Hey What Happened

Best player was Michael "Geese" Gerace. He could draw his rock an entire table length without his cue touching the table. That is strong!

Miami, he was a money player years ago, played even, but got 2 to 1 on money, he would rob most players with that game.

I would not be surprised. 2 to 1 on the money, (per game not sets) Is really big.

I don't know how he rates among the players already named, but I have to add Clarence Bell aka "BUCKY BELL". I kept hearing his name in pool rooms and I finally got to meet him and watch him play one year at the Lexington All Star Open years ago......I saw a little skinny man sittin by himself away from all of the tables holding a solid black plain cue with a pink rabbit sticker on the butt. He didn't even have a pool case. I said hi to him and he was very nice and conversational.....I got to watch him play Mark Masden one pocket and he had to play one-handed. I think they were playing 100-200 a game, I am not sure on that, but I watched them play for hours and I have never seen anybody draw the ball from the middle of the table like he did. Bucky got the cash and had great cue ball control. So my vote would have to be for Bucky.

When in Vegas I saw a guy who looked like Allen Hopkins (body build etc.) giving an A player 3 or 4 balls in one pocket and robbing him. I was just amazed at how well he shot. Just wish I could remember his name.


A man has got to know his limitations.

Don't sleep on Scott Simonetti from NYC. He doesn't play one handed by choice, but he can put the ball in the hole!w

"Flaco" in NYC plays very good jackup pool.

I saw a guy a few months back in Canton, Ohio play one handed one pocket flawlessly. It really was unbelievable. I didn't catch his name but I won't forget his face!
