Yea, they were young, DDKoop. Seven different US Open winners, past and future, were at this tournament. You named two. Who are the other five?

If there was a better shot maker than the last player in the first row I'd like to know who he was.

On the big table there might not have been one, Teacherman. Louie's bar table game dropped a ton though.

Is that Jimmy Reid? I didn't see him shoot in person for the first time until 1995, so I'm not too sure what he looked like in 1987.

By the way, I think you have a right to say your picture has eight US Open winners.

You are correct on the count, SJM but it's not Jimmy Reid.

flash was playing something else then, as was I,,,we were playing school teacher,,,,somewhere around '82, '83 I was called on the carpet and informed that schoolteachers in that school system did not play pool with their students in the pool hall downtown,,,the retirement looked too good, I laid my stick down and did not play again until january '03,,,I'm making slow progress, can occasionally run an 8-ball rack, can run a few 9-ball racks, haven't won any tournaments, BUT I'm working on it,,,,,LOL

I think I made the right decision then ('82, '83) 'cause I'm making more in retirement than I ever did teaching,,,,,,,,,,so goes life.

Wow! I never would have worked out that was JJ. Thanks for a good quiz, Hemi. I'm always up for a challenge.

By the way, Hemi, an old timer who I thought hit 'em pretty straight but whose name I haven't come across in quite some time was Toby Sweet of Florida. Do you have any recollection of him?

Hey $Bill, I showed the picture to Dan Louie and Rich Geiler and they both said the same thing, that the guy next to Louie Roberts isn't Jeremy Jones, coulda fooled me. They ID'd a bunch of the other players too.

I said the same exact thing when I saw the guy, Watchez. I didn't believe it either. In fact, I have to agree with you. Two of the guys in the photo IDed him as JJ. They both said JJ was at the tourney and couldn't find him any where else in the photo so they assumed that had to be him.

Like I said, I agree with, Watchez. That guy can not be JJ. He has to be older than JJ would have been at that time.

Lunchmoney, did, Dan, know who the guy was?

I like your work Deanna but the pictures seem awful pixilated.

All of my wallpapers are high resolution, and created for 1024x768 screens, so depending on your desktop, it will appear pixelated unless you choose to "Stretch"(or Center, depending on the shape of your screen) in the desktop options, so it will shrink it to fit best, rather than smoosh it, so to speak, causing the pixelation on smaller resolution screens.

I can assure you, they are all in correct pixelation. :D I make sure all of mine are very clear.

You're not the first that thought that guy was, Buster, Jack but no. All of the guys in the photo are Texas people. The photo was taken at a benefit for Jersey Red who was undergoing chemo treatments at the time. You can tell how sickly he looks in the photo.

The gentleman you refer to.

Yea, it's the same pic, Jack. Buster has been a friend for many years. Though not the favorite, I put in with him to play in the, Professor's, first 10 ball ring game in Starkville. No one on the planet counts money better than, Buster. He wasn't the first to be put out of the ring game either. Danny Basavich, had that honor and yea, Danny, was the favorite. Go figure.
