    The BEST One Pocket Event of the year.

    Justin is liable to beat anyone when he starts coming with the end rail banks. First time I have sweated his game this much and he is up there with the best when he’s on.

    Bill Stroud pool stories................

    When Bill was getting back into the game and posting on one pocket.org how good he was playing, I ran into him at Derby City and asked him to play.

    Who was all in on the infamous dumping at Challenge of Champions 1991?

    Don Mackey had a lot to do with the split. I believe he convinced many of the top players they would all have a piece of the pie and it ended up in his pocket.

    The Hunter sometimes is the Hunted....Anyone have a story about being hustled in a pool hall?

    Evidently that was a favorite trick of his to show off/scare people. I saw him do it at a place called Smitty’s when he got beat by one of the players called Long Beach (There were two or three). Charlie’s comment was ‘I can’t stand to see my $ go for booze’. This Long Beach was a heavy...

    The Hunter sometimes is the Hunted....Anyone have a story about being hustled in a pool hall?

    1965/66 I was going to East Los Angeles College taking a couple night classes. After class I would hit a pool room or two. One night I went to Romeys at 4th and Main in downtown Los Angeles.

    Oscar grew up in CA. We just don’t play banks much here, and it is not like the Midwest or south. He banks pretty good for a CA boy, did you see the end of the set.

    Mika vs Oscar One Hole

    Mika lost his cue ball quite a bit and it cost him. IMO both players were not at their best, but ball in hand quite a few times helps.

    Have you any good stories about underworld characters you met in Pool Rooms?

    We used to leave the pool room and go play poker at my place. One of the regular big losers was Big George. He did not work and always had $. We were riding to the game in his car and I was riding in the back seat. There was a bag halfway under the seat and I took a look. There was a mask and a...

    Unplayed cues coming out of storage

    I have about 15 cues that were put in storage in cases over 20 years ago. Some are straight, some are not and the biggest problem on the butts is you can feel a ridge on the buttcap where the wood has moved/shrunk?. Some of the cues have a wobble that you can’t see rolling them, but is visible...
