As suggested in the female version of this thread...and so why not? We all know that in most poolrooms men far out number the women. Yet I think my female posters would agree that though, as a female the "odds are good... the goods are odd!"

Still there are some exceptions to every rule ;)

My list in no particular order...

I like Moori Soft, but will try whatever you want to send me.

I think pool shoes are a good idea.

Beauty is definitely in the eye of the beholder, and sometimes what looks great on the outside is rotten to the core on the inside.;)

However, having said that, I can think of a few male pro players who have been deemed as "eye candy" by females I have met on the road. :D

Corey Deuel seems to be the one who the ladies love to watch. One young lady traveled from Northfield, OH to the DCC in Louisville a few years ago, hoping to spend some more time with Corey, having met him for the first time in Northfield. Unfortunately for her, Corey was at the DCC with another young lady, and this poor Ohio gal was really bummed out. :(

Tony Crosby and those blue eyes, definitely a good-looker, and he's a nice guy too. I feel kind of funny posting the compliment, though, because Tony posts here on AzBilliards. [Hi, TonyC! :D]

I have always like the way Francisco Bustamante carries himself, and he's nice-looking, IMHO. He dresses well and keeps himself manicured and is always very personable. Good-looking with a good personality, a great combo.

UPA PR man Frank Alvarez is another handsome gentleman, and he has a very pleasant personality.

It has been told to me that Reed Pierce and Jimmy Reid were both quite the ladies' men in their heyday and were considered eye candy for many a female.

I admire Shane Van Boening from South Dakota and think he's kind of cute. His tableside demeanor and his politeness reminds me, for some reason, of Perry Como. I think he's going to make some lucky lady a good catch.

England's Raj Hundal has a certain charm about him. His blue-blood accent is nice to listen to, and he seems to attract the ladies at events I have seen him attend. He had his hands full at the last Joss Turning Stone Casino event. LOL

I also like IPT Member Aaron Czetli and think he is cute as a button. His eyes are so expressive, and I enjoy watching him, his enthusiasm for pool. He's polite and has obviously had a good upbringing, based on his manners and demeanor. Very nice person.

Cue-maker and IPT Member Bobby Hunter is very attractive, and I have heard he has dated some very well-known prominent pool ladies in days gone by. He's still got good looks. Some men seem to get better looking as they age, IMHO, and he's one of them.

Niels Feijen is tall, blond, and blue-eyed, and always looks GREAT. Reminds me of a Viking explorer. I can see him wearing his gear and standing on the head of a ship sailing the seas.

Hall of Famer Ed Kelly is a handsome gentleman. I had the opportunity to meet him for the first time this past December at the IPT KOTH in Orlando. He's a sharp dresser and a very nice man, shown in the picture below on the right, posing with Keith McCready. Ed Kelly told me that today he is a card dealer in Las Vegas and has been doing so for 20-plus years. Imagine stepping up to a poker table in Vegas and having Ed Kelly deal the cards!

Of course, I only have eyes for one man these days, but I can still look. At least that's what HE tells ME each time when I catch him enjoying the lovely scenery! :p

In no particular order:

Raj Hundal is desperately HOT (and gives great, tight hugs) :o
Tony Crosby and his hypnotic eyes :rolleyes:
Luc Salvas 'cause he reminds me of Joe Pesci and I love him :cool:
Tony Robles and his GIO ;)
Rodney Morris 'cause he's got that cute je ne sais crois :)
Thosten Hohmann not bad for a white boy :D

What makes these guys and others attractive, IMO, are their personalities.

If you'd left off the "pro" designation, I would have to say ME!!! :D
However, since you said "pro", I'd have to say Corey Duell since he bears a striking resemblance to my eldest sons (twins) who also are often accused of looking like Matt Damon and/or Leonardo DeCaprio.

I met Raj Hundal once in NYC, there's definitely something about him... :D

I've got too many friends in the pool world to be completely honest so I'm going to plead the 2 1/2 cause I'll answer to some so I can't plead the 5th. :p

These are in no particular order...

Stevie Moore... I can name him cause I've known him the longest.

Danny Harriman.... cause I've known him almost as long as Stevie.

John Schmidt... cause I'm constantly telling him I love his million dollar smile, so he already knows I think he's a cutie.

Tony Crosby... cause he caught me and "the nice lady with the plastic cast" at VF talking about what a cute lil behind he had in the jeans he was wearing... and of course the eyes.

Aaron Czetli... I probably would've kept this one to myself but I had to agree with JAM on this one... he's a hoot to watch because he does have very expressive eyes. He is a nice guy and he's fun to hang out with at the Splash bar in Vegas. :p

I'm pleading my 2 1/2 on the rest of 'em. ;) I will say that some have been mentioned and there's a few that ya'll are missing....

The best thing about pool is every player has a unique personality and none of them are boring. Like Wendy said... Personality has a lot to do with it and all players are their own person & they're all fun to listen to. Having a good personality and being interesting has a lot to do with making someone attractive.

Eric, I don't care how good looking a guy is, they all look horrible in speedo's! Pool player or no... I don't wanna see anyone in 'em! :p

One more thing... JAM you also mentioned Reed Pierce... he's still a hottie IMO. :D (I'll admit to Reed cause I don't know him personally. I've just seen him at a couple of tourneys).

:cool:

At the 2005 U.S. Open, I managed to get a snapshot of Reed Pierce and Jimmy Wetch as they were getting their sticks serviced. Usually, the two of them are hanging out at tournaments I've attended. They must be good friends. Reed Pierce has been heralded as the Pride of Mississippi.

Remember that saying about Elvis entering the building? Well, in pool, it definitely applies to Efren Reyes.

He is so very polite and has the patience of a saint, signing autographs, having his picture taken, never grimacing.

Yep, when Efren arrives at the venue site, you might as well say "Efren has just entered the building" because he's the crowd favorite and all eyes dart in his direction.

Picture taken at the 2003 U.S. Open. I kind of like this picture of Efren, and as usual, he never hesitated when I asked if I could snap his picture with Keith. I've got quite a few Efren pics, but I've always favored this one.

LOL, I wish I had a pic of Stevie when I first met him.. skinny little redneckish kid from Spartanburg.... blue jeans, t-shirts, sneakers, and a semi mullet.... his hair was down his neck to where the collar of his shirt was in the back... This was the one good influence Todd had on Stevie... Todd was kind of preppy and Stevie started buying nicer clothes when he started hanging around with Todd... got his hair cut... now he's a stylish, handsome young man. (Of course I thought he was cute when I first met him. Now he's just down right handsome. :p )

Tony Crosby gets moved to the Best Qualified List for this thread, his name appearing more often than others.

All in favor of Tony Crosby winning top honors, say aye.
