Thanks Alfie! I was one of his victims but I really, truly liked him. How could you not like him. He always told it to you straight and could back up his words with action. I watched him school...

The only gals I met worked in topless bars (with pool tables of course). Enough said.

Hank Aaron an also ran? Now that's funny. He's pretty much acknowledged as the greatest hitter of all time, along with Ted Williams.

Ha Ha, I played Scotty once (in Mobile). Got my ass kicked by an underage kid! That was enough for me. I also played in all-black poolrooms (never had a problem) and in biker bars (only once did I...

That sir was a back handed compliment if I ever heard one. I think that one thing John proved with his quest was how difficult it truly is to run 500+ balls. I'm not sure we will see anyone else try...

Whitey was a very good player. It took a champion to beat him. He was also a notorious lowlife who would do anything for a buck.

I beg to differ. George Rood was a GREAT pool player! As a young man (20's and 30's) his road partners (and best friends) were Luther Lassiter and Don Willis. George got married and settled down in...

Artie beat the Vegas books out of millions. So much that they got the Feds after him. Artie got a raw deal, just like Ivey is getting now from the Borgota.

The best answer I can give you is that in all the paid stream matches each player is getting a cut. That way they don't walk away empty. Probably get their room comped as well. Additionally the...
