1966 US Open Collage - 06-19-2020, 09:09 AM

Hi guys - Iíve been snapping up old 14.1 tournament posters to frame and hang up in my home room. I found this really great 1966 US Open collage, where Crane ran 150 and out that Iím sure most of us have seen by now. Thought the forum would find it interesting!

How tough were the fields back then? Six of the top seven finishers are BCA Hall of Famers. The other, George Mikula, was a 300+ ball runner. Cinderella need not apply.

That's the first time I've seen a list of players.

In the video you can see Jimmy Moore in the audience with his cigar.

The tournament was a double elimination but they managed to rank all the players down to tenth place. I wonder if they used averages.

In the 1970s, ties were broken by total ball count (same as average balls made per match but not the same as average balls made per inning). Seems likely they did it the same way in the 1960s.

Often tied players in a double elimination format can have a different number of matches, so ball count can be different from average points per match.

I just noticed from the picture of the players Blackie LeSieur from St Louis was in the tournament. There were some strong players who didn't make the top ten notably Larry Liscotti and Jimmy Caras.

Yes, my bad. Still, my recollection is that ties were broken by total balls pocketed in all matches combined, not balls pocketed per match played. Again, that was in the 1970s, so I'm only speculating about the 1960s.

Little bump to share new additions to the wall. Both are original. The 1974 one has the remnants of someone, presumably at the Jointed Cue, working out some long division.

I looked up the American Legion where the 1973 tournament was held and it looked like quite the venue.
