The guy shooting left handed looks like Dallas West. Dallas was a right hander but check out the bridge - whoever he is, it looks like he is shooting opposite hand.

Jay probably knows all of them.

Guy in the front table is Mizerak. Young guy there. He won the tourney beating Wimpy in the finals, I'm pretty sure.

Edit: maybe not Miz. Terrible bridge hand.
