If it happens, I hope it will be live-streamed. Matlock is a very determined player, and Keith, though determined, will be a chatterbox while he's at the table.

Efren v. Bustie on TV table had to stop because Keith v. Alex game had the whole audience at attention, even Efren and Bustie. Listen to the chatter in the background and then watch and hear the audience roar. Check it out, one of my faves: https://youtu.be/lpoCzvT3dhM?t=4521

Keith getting backed by Buddy Hall, who is also commentating along with Kim Davenport. Hill-hill match against Paez.

Keith is a mess, but straight as an arrow, probably feeling a little pain. Buddy wouldn't let Keith drink any beer while Buddy was backing him. In fact, they both roomed together so Buddy could keep an eye on him.

My next-door neighbor, who is in her 80s, likes my yard so much that she asked Keith to help her too. It's not a lot of money, but it puts a little chump change in Keith's pockets and keeps him busy. He actually enjoys it. Plus, it's great exercise. I get out there and help sometimes too.

We have several elderly and senior citizens on my street. Once a week, Keith carries their trash cans to the curb for the garbage truck that comes once a week, and that evening, he brings their cans back up to their homes. He does not expect compensation for this, but at Christmas time, they give him a little jelly roll.

Keith is still every heavily in touch with the action players around the country, speaks to several of them daily.

I asked him yesterday about this so-called Matlock versus McCready match, and he paused before replying. Looks like it's in the works. Keith did not share this with me until I asked. I know why, but that's a story for another thread.

Oh, and to the Matlock cheerleaders, Keith said with a big cueball, he has no fear against Gonzilla or Matlock. Bring it on, says Keith.
Thanks JAM, glad to hear this!

Does anybody know how to reach Buddy Hall? Looking to contact him. I do not think he has email, so it would be great to have his phone number, if anyone has it. Please PM me. TIA.

All you have to say is it will be streamed and I will pay in advance.

I have been wanting to see this match for about 30 years.

JAM may be playing the old hustlers line, "I haven't hit a ball in months", but the last time I saw Keith at DCC (about a year or two ago, he was hitting em pretty damn good....)

Dont under estimate EITHER of these guys.

I was interviewing Kim Davenport for a book or magazine article years ago, and he said his greatest attribute was the ability to get back in stroke quickly after taking a break. IMO, Keith and Dave, wouldn't need much time to get back in stroke. Not 100% but pretty damn strong.

Make it happen, you know everyone wants to see it.

I think it is a bit "easier" to get in stroke for a bar table match than a big table match.

Neither of them are going to be able to "do" what they did 30 years ago, but they both are equalized by the same amount of time.

I think getting in stroke will take about as long. One thing, breaking out the mud ball means the game will be based on follow, not draw. Patterns will be a lot different. Pocketing balls is probably the easiest part of the game. Breaking out clusters and playing lockup safeties will be important too.

The match could be over in a hurry if either one flashes back to the eighties. I think Matlock's high run on a bar table is twenty-six games or so. Never heard what Keith's is. I think it is more likely that we won't see more than a six pack but running off six games at a time could make things very interesting.

An ahead set could go several long sessions, could be over in well under two hours. I kind of wish the format would be different. Then again, if it is over too fast they may flip it and go again. Neither one has a reputation for being bashful gambling.

What are the odds of this going off?

JAM seems to think it is all wishful thinking.

It is daydream material mostly but if Jennie is looking for Buddy to be Keith's second in his corner and maybe his backer for part of the action then the odds may be better than the maybe one in twenty I give it now. Just a wild guess on my part.

I don't know if Shooters or anyone else has promised a table if needed. A lot of logistics to be considered. If Dave is able to tune up on the table they are going to play on in the room they will play in I have to say that would be a huge edge, enough to tip the balance probably unless someone also sets up a table for Keith.

There is huge interest in this match but there has been huge interest in getting Keith back in the spotlight for years. If Keith comes out in public and says he is serious about making this happen a lot of things could fall in place in a hurry. Other than that, probably just a pipe dream but more entertaining to think about than most stuff on AZB these days.

Who, what, when, where, how, and sometimes y.

Ain't sure about that y but I was on a roll. Howsa bout a scouting report? How much is Dave playing? With who? What's the usual game? The usual bet range? What table is he playing on? Been shooting tournaments? What results?

Answers to those questions should be a good start!
