Whas he a short guy named Mike or was he tall & skinny with black curly hair named Wayne? the Flamingo is my home and nobody there is called the California Kid. Sounds like they made up a name so they would not loose face
when they came back after losing. We do have a really good 1P player from Baltimore named Jeff Brinkman aka Piano Man he is about 5'10" 180 with a
mustache and plays with a Sruggs. Let me know what he looked like.

You’re correct Watchez. I was around Justin when they were going to play.
I asked Justin for $200 of his bet and he said sure.
This guy only had two problems, No Backer & Broke.
He tried to get Justin to play for $500 and then when Justin finally agreed, he then wanted to play for $50 a game. I told Justin to tell this guy to get his s*** together and don't bother him until he does.
I then went to bed and heard the next day from Chuck that Justin played a set for $1K and lost (but not with this guy). Justin had a steak horse for that game.
Then he played another fellow for $500 on his own and won.
Watchez - Justin just told me that the St. Louis Whale (think Wright City) is on his way.
Be here Wednesday.

TY & GL, OHB

Justin knew the guy from playing him in West Palm Beach. Guess he gets around. California Kid?? Sounds like he has made up a nickname for himself that no one else knows about. And the reason that he jumped up to play Justin even was the last time they played, he gave Justin the 5 ball. Justin got lucky to win. He is playing terrible & might not get into anymore action while down there. As you can see, he hasn't played anyone in over 2 days.

Yes, the short guys name was Mike. Thanks for the clarification Capt. Fortunately, he played worse than Justin.

Yes, I hear the whale is on the way. But the same story was told last year & he was a no show. I will be back Wednesday night also to check in for the rest of the weekend. Hopefully Justin is behaving himself & hasn't gotten thrown out of my room & hotel. j/k. Hey OHB, if you see Justin ask him how his trip to the gas station was....this will tell you how far the elevator goes up in this kids head. It is OK to call him stupid, I did.

He came into town a few months ago and left his cash at the Flamingo...LOL
He gets real mad at himself and smashes his cue down when he misses. LMAO.

LOL it wasnt Wayne. Wayne was with me and he was the one who told me that Mike calls himself the California Kid. Wayne said he was trying to trap Bubba (lol goooood luck there, like Bubba hasnt faded that trap before a gazillion times). Wayne only plays like the last 5 under Justin haha....but he sure was itching to find a cue and still match up. Thats the power of the DCC I guess.

Yeah, Wayne does not mind paying for a good lesson.

I dont think that Mike guy will be coming by the Flamingo anytime soon.
He just can't get a handle on our Gold Crown.

Is it Mike Najarian or whatever he wants to call himself these days? Smallish, bad complexion, bad teeth, shaved head that said he was learning under Buddy Hall for a while?

Really, there is way too much going on to see or tell about it all. Too much action to line up - too much beer to drink - too much food to eat and too much communication with my office to keep the bills paid FOR SURE.

Cute Story - (not to brag or feed my ego)
Just played a very nice fellow who bought back in after losing to a pro in his first match. He told me during the first game that he was so happy to see he wasn't playing a "Known Name" and that made his $100 buyback seem justified.
I could tell he is probably a very good 9-Ball player.
After keeping him completly locked up and then making some pretty good shots to make it 2-0. He says "WHO THE F*** ARE YOU" ???

Many rumors going around about many big action games to be played but sometimes they happen at the same time and you just have to make a choice. If I'm not betting - I just keep slithering around looking for live one.

Found a good one last night - 2 good players were playing a 9-Ball race to 11 for $2K. Player A was winning 9-1 and I overhear this sweater say "Man, I wish I had a bet on him".
I kinda butt in a say - Tell you what! I'll give you a $40 a game bet and I'll take player B. I couldn't believe it when the guy says "YOU GOT IT"!
I know player B pretty well and he overheard the bet. As we were posting, player B winks to me (Not because he had the nuts - just because he knew what a great bet it is). Player B wins the set 11-10.
"WONDERFUL COUNTRY, AMERICA"!

TY & GL, OHB

Joyner plays some shots that are ungodly and then misses straight in hangers - I don't get it. (maybe I should "get it" since I do the same thing - just with less great shots and more misses)

As for me I would like to read more action reports from the railbirds and/or side betters.
There is only 1 thing in all previous posts, that I would like to say thanks for. A poster used the term "Hustler", in lieu of "Sandbagger".
BTW, I do not enjoy reading post by players with an ego.

Now can we get back to some more action reports!!!

OBTW, Is anyone aware of "Ghost Games Bets", that "BILLY WYNN" has been envolved in???

"Have a nice day",

Here's one for you from a poster with an "ego".

At six am yesterday, while watching Corey trounce Scott Frost EVEN in one pocket and simulataneously watching the Joyner/Durbin marathon match I was barked at to play some one hole.

So I matched up with Tony from Pinehurst in a 5 ahead set for 700. After losing the first three games in about 10 minutes I battled back and took it down about four hours later. Oh - and I was ALL IN with my available cash - I had $4 left in my pocket. So I claim the distinction of being the worst player at Derby to leave with CASH and was probably the only one to find a real true EVEN game.

Cliff finally got Durbin. I don't know how much Frost and Duell were playing for but I saw the knots they posted so it was quite a bit. Duell is just brilliant, even slightly autistic in my opinion, when it comes to pool. He shot shots that had Frost perplexed and pissed the whole time. Duell did get lucky several times on the shots he tried but for the most part he played perfectly.

I also watched a few games between Efren Reyes and Gabe Owen with Gabe getting 9:7. They traded games while I was watching and it seemed as though Efren wasn't really trying too hard. He just didn't seem to be quite as sharp as in earlier tournament matches. It was like 3:00 am or so when I was watching - I think.

I got a little video of the frost/duell and joyner/durbin matches on my webcam. I don't know how it came out - the lighting was really bad for the webcam. I might post some of it if I have time.

Other than that I have to say that I need SLEEP.

John
