I remember Mike Patton. I watched him play at Lexington's Rack Club (RIP Rack Club!) in a tourney about 8 or 9 years ago. He was the man to beat and won the event easily. It was a pleasure watching him play. Never saw him again though...

Rodney also had one of those nerve issues that caused him to shake profusely. I used to wonder how he even hit the cueball sometimes but he seldom missed a shot. Always in a sport jacket and looked like an insurance man or salesman of some sort. Nice guy!

I don't know how great he was but there was a guy named Big John that moved to Houston in the late 80's. I'm pretty sure he was from KY. He wore bib overalls and was real country. Big guy and a very nice guy. Very funny. Had a big bushy beard. Played with a Meucci. Played real good nine ball.

Anyone know who I'm talking about?

FYI, Ray Schultz was a hell of a player from Owensboro. And Moonlight BBQ has the best mutton and assorted deserts in KY.

He still plays, good player and can beat anybody in a tournament. He did win a Junior title, can't remember the year though.

I believe Mike won the state championship two weeks ago in Campbellsville. I know he played in the finals against Landon and I'm pretty sure he came out on top. Pretty sporty player.

Best all-around: Daulton, Patton and Brumback.
Consistently elite: Mike Blevins.

Many came before us, either quitting or dying; too many to name. Respect.

Pete Glenn,great or near great player?
Not so much,but hustler,winner,#1 in my book

He won more money betting on pool than any player
I ever heard of. I know I made a contribution to him.

Vernon Elliott robbed me once in Dallas at Times square
He had a state sponsored vacation for a while and when he came back through
Dallas,I finally beat him with a large spot

I wouldn't have won ,but we were enforcing the one foot on the floor rule at CJ's

Vernon miscued several times using the "ladies aid",or I would have lost getting
2 Hit and the Pick,my standard game from road agents in those days

Kentucky was bank pool country in my day,probably still is

nice thread

I know or have heard of just about every player mentioned in this thread.
Mike Blevins hasnít played in several years due to a bad back.
I know itís an old thread but Sky Woodward is from Paducah Ky.
Also Robert Frost is from Ky but currently lives in Ohio
I could name a bunch of players that play at 650 or above fargorate

I know this thread is as old as dirt but does Kevin Nichols still play? Late 80's-early 90's he was a helluva bank pool player from Ken.

Just to clarify here.

Nick Varner is actually NOT from Kentucky. At least not originally. He graduated from Tell City High School in Tell City, Indiana. Which, of course, is on the Ohio River and right across the river is indeed Kentucky.

Now Nick and his family moved to Owensboro back in the day but Nick is originally from Indiana.

Wasn't Nick Varner born in Kentucky?

You might be right. But he basically grew up in Tell City, Indiana. He graduated high school from Tell City.
