Where did this story get started? I remember Lassiter describing how he ran into Bud Hypes in Mullins, WVA and played him for three days or so before he got even. As I recall they played on a 4X8 which was what Bud was accustomed to playing on. Now I hear a story that Bud beat Wimpy 8 out of 9 times. I just don't think it happened. I think it was just as Wimpy described. It took him two or three days of playing to get back even. He told other hustlers to scratch Mullins off their list.

I haven't heard that story but I don't think that any human being ever beat Lassiter 8 of 9 times.

NO ONE could ever beat Bud Hypes in his home room on the 8' table. He did beat quite a few good players until the word got around. Wimpy may have tried him once or twice and given up. He was smart enough to know when he had bad action.
