Bobby Hunter has always been one of my favorite players to sweat, beautiful stroke and solid fundamentals all the way. When yer the dark horse - and a horse is a horse of course of course, the parrty 'in crowd' will try and control who thinks should win (sharking, crooked ref's, and basically politics in general). In a perfect format feeling like 'I belong' to the rest of the group will do absolutely nothing to help me win. It is nice to have people on yer side and not pulling against you but a sense of belonging to a company, list of current players, or tournament - is more about approval from others an or $ than coasting in towards victory lane. The real truth is - winning consistently has to be about more than $ ie sponsors, fame, and or ego, if yer running hundreds - you belong there - whether they 'the in cramped in crowd' like it or not. Go right to the source and ask the horse - he'll give you the answer that you endorse. He's always on a steady course. adios.

I'd love to own one of his cues. Not a lot of 14.1 champions making pool cues.
