    Individual Sports The Greats Make The Game

    Don't forget Bernhard "Eagle Eye" Langer, another old pro who could bring it almost on demand.

    Best Pool Player you saw alive, regardless.

    That might have been the year Toastie won 3 straight matches with 125 - 0 runouts. Yeah, that's pretty sporty...

    70s/80s Era Questions

    And then you ran across the odd person who either by ignorance or design, sometimes it might not be clear, would put absolutely the wrong cloth on a table. Like the fella I met one time with Simonis 300 (3 cushion cloth) on his Olhausen 8ft home table. Imagine playing on a formica counter top...

    Surprised at the "stickiness" of Fargo ratings

    If there are players in the tournament entered WITHOUT a handicap (fargo or otherwise), yes, you will see distortions in the performance calculation for matches played against those players.

    Go to playing cue.

    A cue collector friend I know ended up selling most of his collection several years back, mostly for personal reasons, but swore he would never part with his Hercek. And as can happen he got the question, "Would you consider selling?" His obligatory answer was an absurd (for then) number, but...

    south west with a maple forearm and butt is a bad choice?

    I remember hearing from a reliable source many years back that Jerry's personal favorite was Goncalo Alves.

    Sneaky Pete Cues ……

    Favorite cloth color

    MATCHROOM AND CUETEC SIGN AGREEMENT, MARKING A BRILLIANT NEW ERA FOR NINEBALL

    Definitely two separate guys, one from Joisey and the other down south. One's a 14.1 fan (NJ) and sweet Lou's an 1pkt guy. :cool:
