Heís one of the reasons I play this game, and I think he should be in the Hall of Fame.
I agree about the HOF for Pretty Boy Floyd. Iíve never seen a video that really showed
the charisma that Jimmy had. He had the Rack in Detroit hypnotized when he would
start making a game.
One of the most enjoyable 9-ball tournament matches I saw live was Jimmy and Keith..
..they talked and joked and told stories...probably both shot in the .900 range...
...Keith won it hill-hill...and Jimmy shook hands with a big smile.
...those guys could give it...and they could take it.


Lionize your game.

If pool players had to have knowledge of geometry and physics before talking about geometry and physics, all of the aiming threads would disappear.

Daniel at POV Pool did a great interview with Mataya. It starts about 54 minutes in on this YouTube video.
