He was one of my dear friends in the pool world and one of our greatest hustler/players from the late 60's until the 80's, when he opened Hawaiian Brians poolroom in Honolulu.

Terry, I could give you a brief history of pro pool in the 90's since I was there for most of the major events. It was the time of Don Mackey, the Camel Pro Tour, the Bicycle Club tourneys, the Los...

I would put Brian in the top five of road men of that era. He was a money maker! I played him three or four times myself to no avail (9-7 in One Pocket and the seven ball in 9-Ball).

Dufferin's were (and are) the best house cues ever made. Consequently many have been converted to two piece cues. As for me I like them just the way they are - one piece cues! :cool:
