    Efren Reyes

    Like Danny D, Efren is washed up. He shot at the wrong hole. He missed a ball one foot away from his hole straight in, he was on tilt, shot clock violating, he sold out on some incredible mindless shots, he...he.... Oh wait he won?! I knew it! Ive said he was the best player in the world bar...

    Danny D, it's not funny any more..."he made it, he made it, he made it...

    Danny is a very good friend. So Im not going to comment either way. He is a champion and that is all needs to be said by me. But one thing I will say. When I asked him what he thought about criticism he said. "Don't worry when I go, they'll all say they loved me.". He told me he is lucky to...

    Keith McCready story

    In those days in Hollywood the LA Free Press came out. One of the first alternative papers. There was a big hip community and Ye Billiard Den was always on the border of it. There was a big thing called a Freak Out. It was just a group of freaks and hippies doing their thing. It was led by a...

    Keith McCready story

    Sorry I was born in 47. Keith was in 57? I got confused. In 74 I was all ready out of there and running with a different crowd.But a friend of Hawaiian Brian and myself named Freddy from Hawaii bought the Billiard Den. And I believed it ended soon after. What happened to me was I met a guy by...

    Keith McCready story

    Of course you were there Jay. You had the front table coveted. You were one of the good guys . JJ was a great guy too and we miss him. I remember when John S tried to stiff him and JJ a gentle giant for once in his life went off and got him on the ground in the doorway. It was a great time...

    Keith McCready story

    I was there. It was 1967. Met Jimmy Caan there and his brother Ronnie. I think Diliberto gave him the 7. Lots of action. Richie Ambrose had just made a 6 figure score. Some guys made a score off of Phil Spector. I met Telly there with his brother George (Demosthenes). Telly had a Mosconi cue...

    Crazy big money action at DCC last night

    Just a little story about John. He didnt win all the time. Once he made a large prop bet he could live in Des Moines for a month without ever leaving. He couldnt handle it and paid off.

    US Open 10 ball & 8 ball is Back!

    A bit about table size. Recently I participated (gave $300) for a Accu-Stats Make it Happen event. It was One Pocket on 10 foot tables. I just found it to be not to my liking and really distorted the traditional game.. It changed the break, the safeties, and banks. For some it was interesting I...

    US Open 10 ball & 8 ball is Back!

    I do sympathize with you Jaden. However you cant compare golf to pool. The payout at the US Open at Pinehust says it all. 20th place pays $108,000. With a payout like that you would get pool players from around the universe to play in it. The Us Open 9 ball 13th place gets something like $3500...

    Crazy big money action at DCC last night

    Ive told this story before. I told John (Cornflakes) that Efren would be coming in to our place in LA to gamble with some locals. John drove down there by himself and asked Efren and the Filipino contingent if they wanted to play one ball. Efren would give Johnny the side pocket plus the corner...

    Swanee payouts

    Sorry youre not making sense here Lenny. Griffin has invested a lot of time and energy in this project and he is now expected to hand it over to someone else? You yourself had some problems recently with defective products. Should your company be turned over to Accu-stats to distribute? No! We...

    Swanee payouts

    Just what we need. Judgement by Social Media. We dont need the Supreme Court anymore. Next youre going to tell me the Kardashians are a relevant entity because of the millions who follow them. LOL!! Eruption!!! Thats funny! Oh and Ive been a California resident since 1967

    Swanee payouts

    You paraphrased. Yes you were not exacting in your statement yet you require others to. A lot of the thread expresses counter to your opinion yet you dont seem to see that. If you mean to relax as to overlook your discrepancies that is a laughing matter as you insist others not do so. We can...

    Swanee payouts

    "Here's what the public wants" Excuse me are you an elected official? Or do you hold some high post in a service organization? Or a Union rep? Its quite presumptuous for you to speak for the public. I am part of the public and so are my friends and family and you certainly dont speak for us...

    Swanee payouts

    Goodbye Swanee? If I was a friend of Mark Griffin's, which Im not, I would suggest Mark to just walk away from it all. Do you really need this kind of petty grief over such a small amount of capital? As a customer Mark you have always treated me very kindly. From the 1st Us open One pocket...

    I love Danny Diliberto but this commentary is brutal.

    Do they allow anyone that has a membership to PETA and the ASPCA in KY? I play a little banjo does that help?:grin::grin: Maybe Vegas??

    I love Danny Diliberto but this commentary is brutal.

    More people play checkers than chess. Does that make it a better game? No. Chess is harder and rightly so. 10 years ago no one was eating Sushi. Now its a different story. At one time there were only a handful of entries into the World Championship of Poker now thousands. What Greg Sullivan is...
