Thanks Billy for the story about a legendary One Pocket player. You probably don't remember me, I was just a kid from Dayton hanging around Mergards in the 60's (maybe 1965). I would see Clem there every night along with Joey Spade and the mailman. Gary was a baby then
I never saw anyone gamble with Clem, only once in a while he would shoot some proposition shots. He beat me out of a couple of bucks a few times
He claimed to be out of stroke since his stint in the can and I was told he didn't play as good after that. Maybe you know better.
Mergards was a cool room but I had to be careful since I was still in my learning stages. Got a pretty good education there in the time I was working at the Fifth-Third Bank. Thanks
