I never saw him play but heard a lot about Billy Stover if anyone has info on him.
I also heard many times Chuck Morgan was the Best and beat a lot of road players.

When you mentioned Rich Letsky are you referring to Rich LESKI? I knew him way back in the mid 80's.

Tell him I said "Hi"

Some bad news Cleveland locals may want to know. Local player and rail bird Bill Gambino passed away Wed.Jan.24th. He came across as a guy with a harsh exterior but underneath was as friendly as you could find. I know many in NEO will miss him.

About 15-20 years ago I was sitting at the bar at Airway in Dayton --there for a meeting at the base--with an accustats one-pocket match on the TV. After one shot I said to the guy sitting next to me, "he should have tried to move the blah blah blah..." The gentleman, Steve Cook, said..."well here was my thinking ...."

Chuck Morgan played any human and won at any game. Straight , 9 ball , one pocket etc.
in the 60’s and 70’s his name was known all over the country yet he didn’t play in tournaments. When road players came gunning for him, he sent them home broke. I was lucky to practice with him for a couple years and he was amazing,

Down south in Dayton we called him Billy Stauffer. And we called Rempe, Jimmy Rippy. Everything was phonetic in those days, no internet, no billiard mags, no nothin'!

Love to see some pics of Chuck if there are any. He managed to stay under the radar like Jack Cooney for most of his life. I only saw him once for sure, in Dayton in 1974.

RIP Bill Gambino. I remember him from Northfield Billiards.

Leil Gay and Mark Maryo were both very good players. Leil passed away (too young) and I think Mark is still around, just not traveling any more. He used to go to all the tournaments in the Midwest.

I worked at Winners for a few months. If you know how I could contact Anton that would be nice. He was a very nice guy and we talked for hours. JR ( Leil Gay ) was allowed to play anytime he felt like at no charge.
He practiced straight pool for hours every day and had runs between 1-2 hundred on a very regular basis. He passed away last year. I knew and played most of the top players from the 60ís to today.

Hi Jay, Mark recently retired last fall and is now able to play much more. He still plays strong and wins local tournaments. In fact Iíll probably see him tomorrow at a local scotch doubles tournament. Itís a 100. entry with 64 pairs of strong players. Iím assuming heíll be there.

Whatever twitch in his stroke you saw sure did work for him.
He played any player from anywhere for any amount. He sent top rode players home broke.

Herbie Cue played at Northfield lanes for years. He was an excellent player and gambler. Buddy Wallace was in his prime in the 1940ís he played in straight pool tournaments but he wasnít a gambler. As he aged in the 70ís & 80ís he spent hours daily at Cloverleaf lanes teaching and helping young players. And Morgan is a legend and world beater.
