You should have seen him, in his prime, playing straight pool. The only thing that slowed him down was the fact that he had to wait for the balls to stop rolling. Watching him play was like watching a high speed ballet around a pool table.

I seen on "worlds wildest police chases" they showed the camera footage of a pool room getting robbed and it was lou butera being robbed, you could see him getting held at gunpoint. It was weird, anyone else ever seen this?

I don't know how they could keep him still long enough to rob him. :D They must have caught him between racks. ;)

I haven't seen that show, but that may have been one lucky crook.
When I worked for Lou, back in the late 60's, he was never very far from his own piece, and he knew how to use it. Lou Butera is not a guy that I would want to rob, for a number of reasons.
