IT IS gambling. I have watched this same game twice. I won't reveal who won each time, but niether is running away with the money without earning it... unless Henn has a break down/blow up. LMFAOAtMyself.

I meant on himself, not sharking. I have watched Henn get blasted 9-0 by a guy he should slaughter because the guy got the first 3 games and Henn fell apart. This was the first time I met Hennessee. I was talking to a buddy about his horrible play and he just so happened to be right behind me. He anounced, "I'll play the guy nine ahead for $10,000 right now."

Here's a little info for all you side betters..

We all know Scottys game is not as consistent as it once was.. That doesn't mean he can't come in and play like he used to.

It comes in spurts on any given day.

He's had a long road of pool playing and a tough life. You could beat this man 100 sets in a row and he will try just as hard in the end as he did in the start.

Scotty has no give up what so ever..... and for that matter alone I like Scotty in this match.. If It's a grinder match you can guess who's gonna give up first..

So calculate the odds and make your bet accordingly..

If Scotty comes in on one of those spurts it's Scotty on top at the end..
If Henn falls into his blow up session it's Scotty at the end..
If Scotty plays bad it's Henn in the end.

If none of the above happens it's close to a coin flip and I'll bet on Scotty with a flip up match..

If it's bar table I'll bet on Scotty all day and half of the night...

I got nothing at all against Henn but snap em off Scotty..

Thanks,
Josh Hillard

I've seen this match twice also.. Once on buckets and once on tight tables.. Since neither is an unknown player I'll say what happened..

Scotty won both times and the second time on the buckets Henn fell apart because no matter how many ahead he got Scotty never gave up.

and to be honest my opinion of this match from the first time I ever saw them play was Henn had the best of it. It would almost seem that way.. After watching them play I now feel if Henn doesn't take control at the start and take it off before the 2 hour mark I would have to bet on Scotty..

It's hard to bet against John on a bar table. Too bad this won't be online for viewing, or I might get in on the action

[QUOTE=BPG24]I would appreciate the updates, but wouldn't bet unless I could see it live.

I have seen Scotty in action and his game is amazing but John has been playing ALOT lately and I think that could play a factor in this match.

Big Table i might like Scotty to win. But like many have said, this IS gambling[/QUOTE

I'll be there as well. I'm told Gary Abood will be in action with someone at the same time.

I played agaisnt Good Time CHarlie once in a local tourney here once........it was a 8 ball tourney 2 of 3.... I had only been playing maybe for a year or so.....needless to say I was on my nerves and managed to go to the rubber match with him...........I somehow got on the 8 ball straight in at the headstrings corner pocket........ Jitterin so much I missed it by a diamond and a half!!!!!!!!!!! He ran the rest of his balls and that was that......... But one heck of a guy!!!!!!!!!! And a good bar box player on top of that!!!!!!

Consider it me doing the other guy a favor by not taking his money. :p

We all have our opinions of this match.. My opinion is I like Scotty to win for many reasons..

One, I have seen Henn & Scotty play twice and Scotty won both times..
Once in Mobile on the Diamonds and once here in FL on buckets.

Henn was playing good then as he just beat Tony Watson gambling a few hours before they played.

Two, I have never ever seen Scotty give up, Never ever.. The guy could play for 20 hours straight and try just as hard as he did at the start..

I'm not saying Henn can't win.. I'm simply saying I do not believe he will win.. For many reasons which I have witnessed from watching this match and from watching Henn play..

We will just see what happens and at the end I will either say I told you so or you can dog cuss me..

Your very right about your comment on Scotty will not put up with any bull on the side..

I've already witnessed a mouth off to Scotty from someone, who I will not name, and Scotty replied with I'll take all 3 of you outside and whip your a$$...

It got real quiet after that.. Scotty doesn't put up with any bull.. and he doesn't give any either.. One of the only players I can completely say will never try to f**k you over with bad racks or sharking to win.

For that he has a lot of respect from me..

Scotty is a great guy. He was just messing around and trying to get someone to take action on this proposition bet he has. After no one would bite, he said screw it... I'll show you guys how to do it. Then he couldn't get it to work (sounds like a set-up I know, but you should have seen the look on his face). He was hilarious, he told us all why he couldn't get it to work and couldn't find a different drink glass to actually do it.

I'm just ribbing you a little, although I do like to be on the right side of a bet occasionally. I'm gonna tell you what probably happened.......Jon shots Scotty's nuts in. Like him or not, Jon has been playing some sick pool for the last couple of months. Scotty is a great guy and a great player but he ain't the player he was a few years ago and Jon is hitting his peak right about now.

Scotty is a great guy and a great player but he ain't the player he was a few years ago and Jon is hitting his peak right about now.

If they play again I will take the same horse and run with him.


I got nothing against Henn at all.. We know each other from around the room but not friends nor enemies..

Scotty has not played his true game consistently in over 6 or 7 years.. Well maybe 4 or 5..

No offense to him but it's true.. He still catches that speed in spurts though.

Henn is a good player.. Never said he wasn't..

I like josh, but you have to give him hell after this one. lol

Hen has been playing really really well lately. Some people probably still think the Bar Box All Around was a fluke. No surprise to me, I have seen him destroy people on the kiddie table


I can take it no problem.. I'll speaky my mind right or wrong on how I feel over something.. But I'm sure I'll catch a few haters that will try and drill me over it cause they don't like me... :p

Hennessy 7 ahead and taken a break.


So after the two sets that Henn won they came back and played again later in the day?

I figured this might happen.. That's why I said if they play again to let us know how it goes..

rep ninball for having heart.

I'm just glad to see we got some action.

JoeyA
03-30-2008, 08:48 AM
who won the 3rd set???

Jon "Hennessey" won all three. I watched several games and Jon was in control the whole time. Scotty showed plenty of heart never giving up just as Nine Ball said. To his credit, Scotty gave just as much effort to giving Hennessey a tight rack even when he was getting whacked rack after rack. I watched Scotty practice when Jon went to play a match and he seldom missed. Jon's break was working and he ran out more frequently.

Hennessey was all business. I didn't perceive any attitude from him the whole day and night. Often he gets hammered for his attitude and just for the record , I didn't see it nor did I see him argue with anyone.

I asked him if he knew Ktown and when I said Ktown I got his attention and he smiled. I mentioned that Ktown had tried to call him when Scotty was making his comeback after being down 9 games and getting it back to zero. He said he was in action and didn't like to answer phone calls when he is in action. :D

Lil Steve and I are going to check out the pool hall this morning to see if we can get some action. Pinegar, Townsend, and Aboud are not on the menu. :D

I borrowed my road partner's laptop to make this post but probably won't be able to make any additional posts as we are checking out of the hotel which has the Internet access.

Nice tournament. It didn't finish up last night and the hogs are in the hunt for the most part. I got knocked out and finished 8th place in the tournament money and one place out of the Calcutta. One guy played so slow it was pitiful, he made Archer look like he was a greyhound.
I played the guy and I was fresh and took his slow play in stride and spanked him 7-2. As the night wore on, others couldn't take the slow play and complained to the tournament director and asked for him to be put on the shot clock. Tyler was his name and he was sloooooooooooooow. His nickname should be SNAIL, really...... He once took 5 minutes to shoot a shot. Lil Steve told me to do the same thing to him and I told Steve that I wasn't going to change anything I was doing as I was in control of the match.
Later,
JoeyA

I think Hennessy may have been on his best behavior partially due to the fact that he knows Scotty won't put up with it one bit. If he thinks he can intimidate or take someone off their game with it, that's when the antics SOMETIMES show up. But I've only seen that while he's in a match. Otherwise, I've had nothing but good interactions with Jon off the table. I can say the same about Scotty, though I've only met him a couple of times. The results of the sets just follow the run of form that Jon has been on for the past few months, not suprised that he won. But then again, I wouldn't have been shocked to see Scotty take it down either. Good job on the updates Joey, rep to you.

Thanks for lookin out for a brother.:cool: He called me yesterday afternoon and gave me a rundown and told me they were gonna try to play another last night. I didn't want to post it because I didn't know if it was gonna come off or not.

Ol' Jon is playing lights out right now and as frequently as he has been playing in big action with big players I don't see his game dropping off soon. He is going to hang out with us at the Smokey Mountain Shootout at the end of April and it won't surprise me one bit if he doesn't snap that off too.

Well.I happened to be the action that JoeyA bumped into earlier today and I have to say after it was all said and done,the more I thought about it the more I realize how much of a blast I had playing Joey today.I'm sure he'll add to this a little when he sees the post.Joey was my first draw in the tourney yesterday and I played so bad it made me sick at my stomach(not really)but I think Joey toasted my nuts 7-2,I think.Well I went on to win the next 5 in a row before the owner shot my nuts off( he was playing very well I might add).Well I played pretty ruff against Joey my first match and was kinda wanting to redeem myself and I'll be damned if he didn't ask for some action not long after I walked thru the door today.I don't remember exactly how it all played out but I think we played the first three sets for $100 a set with Joey winning all three.Then the fourth set for $200 which I won leaving me $100 down.Then the last set for $300 that was very close after Joey had to play catch up.I think we were hill hill when I had a 9 on the snap to finish it off.We were racing to 9 in all the matches.I really enjoyed playing with Joey and hope to play with him again in the near future.Joey brings a strong game to the table.You cant take him lightly.Hope you and your sidekick had a safe trip home Joey.

"Hennessey" was displaying good behavior and civility to many people at this tournament )when Scotty wasn't around. While Scotty has a good effect on most people, I don't think Jon's behavior is tied to Scotty's expectations.

Jon interacted with other players including myself. Showed some shots, let me hit some balls with his very nice Pat Diveney cue and answered many questions.

Thanks for the REP.

Rickey,
It was nice meeting you. You got the numbers right. :D

I lost to you but I have to say that I too enjoyed playing you as well. You showed a lot of class, a lot of gamble and were a pleasure to play with. I hope to see you at Buffalo Billiards in Metairie, LA one day.

Sending you a little REP for that honest appraisal. :D

I have seen Hennessey act many times. I can say, even without being there, he was on his best behavior because -
1)Scotty
2)He was winning. See Jon when he is losing or feeling the heat, and the true Hennessey comes out every time.

The nits will pull up on you if they lose a few games. Rickey isn't one of those as you can tell by the record.

I don't like to play by the game because if you do happen to show a little speed, the other player is often looking for an excuse to fill in a commentating job, their back is hurting or some other such nonsense just to get out of playing. :)

Another little subtle dig. You do keep it going.

I like to play sets myself. My game is so up & down I am liable to lose by quite a few games one set & then win a couple of sets on a row. There are some players you can play by the game, but you have to know your players and stay away from playing by the game with the ones who have one foot out the door when you start.

I'll also play a set of 9 ball & a set of one pocket with the understanding we are going to play one of each. Hope we run into each other some day and get a chance to play. John Henderson

Whatever do you mean, John? I have no idea what you are referring to. I was just explaining to Donnie a couple of reasons why one should not play by the game. I'm glad you agree with me.

As to playing you some pool, which is your weakest game? I might ought to try that first.

But seriously, it is always fun to play another AZer some pool and I look forward to meeting you one day as well.

My weakest game is golf on a snooker table. I'm a terrible go off in that spot. Then one pocket and nine ball. I have also blown a little cash at three cushion, so you can see I am a well rounded billiard room pigeon. John

Then surely I must try you some golf on a snooker table. It sounds like I would almost have a lock on that game. Perhaps I should bet real high and make it a race so that I can be assured of a good score, just in case we should ever play one pocket or that scourge of a game, nine ball. :D

It is always nice to know that there are other pidgeons besides myself, out there as this thread attests to.

Now we have it. I can blow all the money I have budgeted for pool to one guy knowing it will be back in action soon. Maybe to my friend Jay. I know he will want you pumped up whenever you guys play, so he may want a piece of mine to make sure you win enough $$. I will also set aside a little cash for one pocket as I like to go off on that a little too. John

Pinegar is hot right now...

Wonder how long it can last

It is all perspective I guess. I've seen players on a hot streak but Pinegar looks like he is playing solidly, rather than hot. I think KTown might have a horse that can run.

All that being said, the pockets were cavernous and the table were 3 1/2 x 7. :D
