I know you still had game at DCC as well, I was there for that 1P match, but no, I didn't stay for the entire match. Yep, he truly didn't want medals, trophies or even HOF inductions if there was no money attached
He didnít play Artie in his prime. He played Artie about a decade ago ó- well beyond his prime (whatever that was). Unfortunately there wasnít much record keeping back in the 60s, 70s and 80s. Barely any in the 90s. Iíve been around pool since the mid to late 80s. Never heard of Artie and very little of Freddie for that matter. They have stories of who they beat but no one really knows. All I know is the only one pocket players that were talked about from Chicago from my early years around pool were Bugs, The Dasher....you could also include Jeff Carter. Bugs obviously being the cream of the crop.
