    Cochrans in San Franciso, some of their Best Players!

    Grady 05-13-2006, 03:23 PM This looks like a post by Grady in 2006 from the One Pocket Forum .... Link below! Cochran's was anything and everything, simply the greatest pool room ever. 1028 Market St. was the actual address. I worked there in 1963. I got paid two dollars an hour and often I'd...

    TAR: From The Vault; Bucktooth's Keno Game at the Derby. Free Video.

    There is no gaff, just gamble. As you can see in the video for 25 minutes the Tooth lost a bunch of money, and he did come with a friend and that guy lost $4,000. as well. Once your ball gets on the board it can go anywhere for every hole alters the ball's travel. Roll the ball too hard you go...

    High Run? Jay, I heard several years back that Keith ran 26 racks in a row of 9 ball playing on a bar table. I don't who he was playing, or for how much, but he ended up loosing by the end of the night to the same player. Does anyone out there know more about this high run, or who Keith was...

    Keith McCready: Toughest Gamblers Ever

    I heard Denny Searcy was one of the best money players in California at one time. Also Cole Dixon was another, when he was young he went to LA and broke everone playing pay ball, and a whole bunch of great players was there playing at the time. Denny was before my time and I never got to see...

    Tyler beat Tony in Sacramento, CA a Hard Times about a year ago playing 10 ball. Tyler won either $1,000. or $2,000 in a race to 15 I believe. I cannot remember the exact details but Tyler won.

    Just Spoke To Johnny Archer-cool story about what he is doing

    I agree with you Bval, and I respect Eric and what he is trying to do for pool very much. Maybe I should have asked him in a private message as opposed to the Forum about Johnny? Keep up the good work Eric, and thank you Bval for making the Corporate sponsorship clarification.

    Just Spoke To Johnny Archer-cool story about what he is doing

    Nike & Buick sponsors Tiger Woods! Jim, I was just trying to give credit to those few guys out there like Fatboy that have been considerate enough to sponsor a few players in major pool tournament events. Since our sport has very few sponsors those that do help I feel need to get credit for...

    A none murdered animal cue please.

    Did you know that it was the game of POOL that saved the Elephants during the turn of the century. It was either a cue ball importer or a citizen of this great country for I cannot remember who it was, that put up a REWARD of $25,000. for the first company to manufacture a Cue Ball made up by a...

    Just Spoke To Johnny Archer-cool story about what he is doing

    Nice post Eric on Archer! Did you sponsor him on that trip or is it something he did on his own for it is quite expense to travel overseas, the airfare alone, housing, food, etc. and to be able to come back with a profit. Was Johnny an invited guest? It certainly sounds like he is having fun...

    Haddad vs SVB ?

    This tread indicated earlier that Shane ran 9 racks in a row on Mark in their match is that correct?

    Haddad vs SVB ?

    Normally, with the 6 ball Mark would have a slight edge on any player especially should he get all the breaks. I think the 7 ball with all of the breaks would be about an even game with any player. Maybe Dennis or Efren could give Mark the 6 ball should winner break. Mark is subject to catch a...

    Haddad vs SVB ?

    Yep, Mark won the Open Bar Table Tournament in Reno a few years back. I think it was the 8 Ball Tournament, but I can't remember. Jay would know which one? Mark is subject to beat anyone playing at his best. No one has to like it. He did beat Earl Stickland in Reno I witnessed that race and he...
