Check out Dave Ross

I probably played my best pool in my late 20s - mid 30s...and that's what I think most players prime years are. That does not mean that you cannot play well and win anymore. Age can be a strength as...

I agree with that 'billiards and snooker greats have no place in this thread.' I do think that tournament victories cannot be the judge of who the greatest all-around player is/was. The game of pool...

3kushn -

Shorty v. Ceulemans

So Ceulemans wouldn't take Shorty's offer to bet on a match that he really couldn't lose at...so it's probably safe to say the he also wouldn't take Shorty up on some 1-pocket for any cash.

Best advice to get sponsorship - just ask!

I played the Florida Tour in the early to mid 90s and received a fairly good stake from a local auto dealer along with five quality golf shirts with his logo clearly shown on the left front.

All-around player???

If you are asking who is/was the best "all-around" player...then you would have to put "Boston Shorty" Johnson in the mix.

Shorty played all pool games at the highest level...and a world...
