Thank you for your posts.

I was always a major Varner fan, Worst fan...and Reyes...and Lassiter....

I am just thrilled to see them all discussed. And I dig the old films so much.

I have one of those old Worst cues, perfect decal, mint...with the original case and an original second snooker shaft. Why? Just because it has his name on it.

I know you have a lot of cues, but would you consider it to be your Worst cue or one of your better ones?

It's pretty much impossible to match these guys up. All three gamble good! That said, mentally Worst has the edge over anybody he would play. He never let up or let down, even for a moment. He is actually a closer match for Dennis, with similar type games - big shotmakers and excellent cue ball control. Shane has that monster break, much more like Earl in his prime. Pretty hard to contend with that when he is on. But neither of these guys could hang with Worst in an all-around consisting of all billiard disciplines. Not even close if you take into account snooker and billiards. Worst excelled at all cue games, not just pool.

What is scary is you never hear anybody try to dispute the accolades directed towards Worst. I've never heard anyone discredit how good he was. That's triple strong

Let me be the first to dispute the accolades.
While i did not play pool as good as he did,I could give him weight in hair style.

I only have one Harold Worst story and it occurred at Johnson City. There were nine ball ring games and Harold was barred from playing. But, anyone could hire him out for one shot during the game. So, he just sat around and waited until he was called upon to shoot for them. I heard he never missed a ball where he could see both edges.

Worst also went down to Argentina for a 3-c tournament - I don't know If it was for a world title but he won and he was told to get out of town for his own safety. I don't remember where I read this but Mr Bond and Jay Helfert probably have heard of this also.


The toughest shot on the table is the one you just missed......Myron Zownir

I've been watching guys tilt the rack before you were born ... Earl Strickland

True story, he beat the Argentine champion to win the World Three Cushion title at age 24. All this while the crowd was doing all they could to intimidate him. After the match he needed a police escort to get to the airport and leave town.

I was helping a relative of Basil find more info about his father's record as a player when I came across this tidbit about Worst and his national debut...

There's also a mention of Bennie Allen playing snooker...

It's a juicy page so I thought you might enjoy it

I enjoyed that, Mr Bond....^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

George Chenier, while he was in England, ran 144 in the World Snooker Championship..
...later disallowed as the record because one pocket was not up to specs...
..George wasn't too happy about that...I was shown an article by Fred Davis in
The Billiard Player mag...the title..GEORGE CHENIER RUNS 144 IN THE WORLD
SNOOKER CHAMPIONSHIP.
...officially, the world title high run was 142 till Doug Mountjoy ran a 145...late 80s.

George was also the first man to run a 150 in the World Straight Pool Championship...
...on Irving Crane....to be fair...matches used to be to 125.


Lionize your game.
