Back in the '80's in N.J. if a stranger came in the room I played them.

Like others that have a few years on em, I played most of the pros that was in their prime from early 70's through mid 80's. That list is way to long to remember and damn sure can't remember the when/game/$$$.

I didn't pick a stick up from mid 80's till 2016.

Since 2016, Ive played the following in private matches for as little as $50 and for as much as 2k a set (all matches was even/up and took place in either Huntsville/Birmingham Alabama or Nashville Tennessee):

Warren kiamco (9 ball banks and 10 ball)
Josh Roberts (9 ball and 10 ball)
Danny Smith (10 ball)
Casper (10 ball)
Sky (10 ball)
Alex (9 ball banks and last pock 8)
Dennis O (10 ball)
Hennessy (9 ball, 10 ball, last pocket 8)
Superman (9 ball banks, 9 ball and 10 ball)
Tony Chohan (last pocket 8)


I've played several weak to very strong shortstops.....way to many to list.

Jeff <<<<<<< LOVES action with killers......preferably CHEAP action but, action nonetheless

Jeff


I knew a fellow that thought he was a good boxer because he was in a position to befriend a lot of "professional boxers". It cost him azzwhippens till he realized he wasn't what he thought/wished he was.

Do you know anyone like the "wannabe" boxer in the pool world?

It's just you, Chris. This thread has great value. I'm always looking to learn more about various players and about the game's history, and the posts in this thread will help me with determining from whom I can learn more about specific players.

The one negative is that by telling others about who we've played, some of us, like me, are showing our age!

LOL.
I played Mosconi an exhibition in 1964.
Does that make me an old fart?
Oops, I guess my avatar gave that away.

Ronnie Allen, Preacher Red,Al Winchenbaugh. I teamed up with Fach against Nick Spanos and the owner of Gary's Billiards (we won).
What did you think of Hitchcock? I saw him at the Stardust Open years ago.
I forgot Tugboat Whaley at an exhibition. He looked to be about 80 yrs.old, but could he play!

The two best players I have played (if you want to call it that) Jim Rempe and Dave Daya (both back in the late 90's)

Didn't stand a chance with either of those, but it was fun and a good learning experience.
