Oldhasbeen will have more stories to talk about Louie than anybody.
I was at Guys & Dolls in Shreveport when Buddy gave Louie the 7 and it was themost amazing thing I had ever seen. The pair remind me now of the way Wyatt Earp and Doc Holiday were portrayed in the movie. Buddy was so quiet and methodical and Louie was just absolutely outrageously fun and entertaining.
In Louie's defense, Buddy won, but, at that time, Buddy was in a zone that I believe few have ever entered. He simply played perfectly and everything else just went his way. Buddy at that period was the greatest 9-ball player on the planet, but I still don't believe anyone played the 7 better than Louie.
