I really enjoyed the interview that Samm did with Nick Varner. I understand better than ever what made Nick the champion that he is.

I'll second that. Nick'a usually mentioned when we consider the greatest all-around players ever, and he still might be underrated at that!

Thanks, Joey! But I can't take credit for his great answers. This was probably one of my favorites. He's VERY insightful and gave incredibly thoughtful answers.

Great stuff. I have always admired Nick from the first time I met him in 1980.

Great job Samm.

Great find for us who don't peek around other areas of AZB much. Thanks Joey for your recon for us!

And that was a great read on varner, who is undisputedly one of pools all-time great players. He's the only pro that has won major titles in all 5 main pocket disciplines. 14.1, 9 ball, 8 ball, 1P & banks.

I've written, called and e-mailed Billiards Digest several times over the years to please to an in depth "Mike Gefner" type article on Nick. Nothing back yet. Thanks much Samm for the wonderful info on Nick.

Nick is a great player and a great person.Pool needs more like him he is deff. an asset to the game and to the community.I got to play golf with him and Archer back in the early 90s in FL and hes pretty capable on the golf course as well.

Nick is one of the real success stories in pool. Great career, still not done. Hard working business man that put's many miles down selling his products and services. Good job, Samm.:thumbup:
