I started watching break shots and he was right, so now when tossing balls out on the table I make sure several are close to the rail.
Foookin genius, that guy was. Prob trolling for someone slightly less genius than him is to bet against.

Over 2/3 of the table is within a diamond of a rail. No bet.


You should have a shot at the cash, especially if we don't get any top pros participating.
Good luck

I'd say SRV was the quality of Hendrix...Clapton/ Van Halen and a long list of just behind follows that pair..

He said, if he didn't, he would say to himself, "What's the point?" and just walk off stage... pretty strong medicine, coming from Clapton.

I saw Hendrix three times. And I saw every other super-star swingin' d**k lead guitarist from the 60s - 70s, at least once. None could hold a candle to Hendrix, IMHO. Not one of them. They were all great. But he was in a class by himself. And then, @ 10 years ago, I saw Stevie on YT. My jaw hit the floor. I'd heard him before, sure. But I was never a huge blues fan so I didn't pay much attention. I'm an idiot. I saw him play and it was like I couldn't breathe right. He's the only guitarist I ever saw who could play with Hendrix. If you watch him closely, it's like the guitar is part of his body. And every part of his body is music. His shoulders, his head, his arms... just astounding. Just simply... astounding.

Come to think of it, if we count the entire table (not just the playing area) it's more than 2/3, like Black-Balled says.

My bad, BB.
