I played Bucky back in 1993 in Virginia. I beat a guy from Ohio for some money and a week later he brings with him a little old fellow. The little guy walks up to me and says he is a retired pipe fitter from Akron and asked me to play. He is carrying a old Mcdermott cue with no case and a big sticker of a cobra on it, I did not now what to make of him. Bucky broke real good and put some racks on me, He then made games playing people one handed one pocket. He was a pistol!

I was in a hole in the wall bar in Cincinnati tonight and Bucky name came up. I haven't seen him in the area in probably 10 years but his legend lives on! Its hard to not like Bucky.

I'm originally from Cincinnati and started playing pool at a hole in the wall bar called Petes cafe where I met bucky for the 1st time in my hometown on a Tuesday night 9ball tournament and I can tell you bucky is bye far one of the most colorful characters to this day I've met around the pool scene I once beat him in a local tournament at are local pool hall bocca billiards in milford Ohio and before the 9 ball hit the bottom of the pocket he leaped to his feet from his bar stool and told the entire pool hall they had the Last 4 if they would bet a wooden nickel then a week later im gambling a race to 5 on a barbox with him getting a spot ive got him 4 to1 in the race and he finds a spot on the break and snaps 4 9 balls in a row with me racking to beat me 5 to 4 love that guy i spent many of nights listening to his road stories in just awe of what his life must of.been like I 100% agree if there was ever a movie made it should be with bucky as a main character

I went to VNEA Vegas in 2005 and Bucky was there. Someone had told me he needed money to eat and get a way back as he was sharing a room with someone and that was already taken care of. Bucky placed himself at the entrance to the biggest room. When start times came up for matches the sea of people coming in to play was like the tide rushing in. Bucky could be audibly heard saying, "Anyone Gamble?" As we played on a couple days later we saw Bucky again trying the same ploy as before. My buddy and I asked him if it had paid off on this corner. He didn't say a word but flashed a wad of cash and a big grin!

Bucky used to stand around and talk to me some while I worked on pool cues at the pro tournaments during the late 80s and early 90's. He was really nice and a great player. Middle of the field pro speed. Have not seen him much since. At one tournament at Wagon Wheel Willies local legend Railroad John was baiting everyone to make a ball with another ball froze against the cue ball on the rails on the other side of the side pocket. Several pros missed it trying to figure out how to make it. He challenged Bucky and Bucky told him that he knew the shot. John said well lets let something on it and Bucky would not bet he could make it or that John could not. Once Bucky walked off John nailed the shot in a different way than anyone had tried winked and gave me a sly smile. I still use that shot when showing off for my grand kids and such.

As your lawyer I advise you to rent a very fast car with no top, and then start playing 1 pocket.
