That's Rich The Hat" Geiler in those pics. A damn good player in his day. Dominated the Northwest for years along with Dan Louie. Got a good story about gambling with him.

He had to learn how to write "Minnesota Fats" and would occasionally sign something like this. He wrote slowly since it wasn't natural for him. He was basically illiterate and became a millionaire...

I kind of liked the softer hit of an ivory joint cue, although I've only had a couple of them. But I was more of a "feel" player than a power player. I would never break with those cues though.

High end ivory cues are best transported by car. As stated above, funny things can happen when shipping expensive cues and allowing them to be handled by other people (by plane or mail). Been there,...

I don't know about all this. If I had a guy stuck and steaming like that I damn sure wouldn't be chasing him outside. That's a recipe for disaster. I think I would have gathered up the shredded bill...

Ha Ha. You want to hear a good one. Early on I used to help Jerry Franklin out by buying a half dozen SW cues at a time and reselling them anywhere I went. Jerry's cues were not well known at the...

I think "backspin" speed is more related to the power of one's stroke. The Three Cushion players who frequently are shooting down on the cue ball can do some amazing things with it. On the other hand...

I don't know the physics of it, but in my experience using a narrower tip (say 12mm as opposed to 13mm) allows you to put more extreme english on the cue ball. Maybe it's already been mentioned on...

Most of these "high end" production cues sold for half off (50% discount) to dealers. So you could say you were a dealer and buy a cue listed at $800 for $400. If you visited the booth of one of...

Once upon a time I played some notorious nit who hung around my local poolroom knocking games and only playing someone with the dead nuts. I could probably give him 8-7 (he could play!) back then and...

That's Moyer's pool room, an all night action joint back then. I took Louie there in 1984 for one of Sid Mann's big Villa Capri tournaments, and he cleaned house at Moyer's for a healthy four figure...
