An oldtimer told me that a guy by the name of Conneticutt John was the best ! Pocket player he ever saw and he has seen a ton of players. Anyone familiar with him?

Connecticut Johnny Vives? Vives won the very first
one-pocket event at Johnston City in 1961.

I believe "Billiards Digest" did a story and/or interview of him several years ago (late 90's?). It may be in their archives.
