Nfty - I just finished my second round OP match & won 3-0 again. 3rd round drawing won't be until 8pm tonight.
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.

$40 a game on the remaining games? So you could lose a max of 120 if player A won the next three or make 400 if player B won the next 10?
Not contingent on who actually won the set as well right?
At least that is how I took the wording of that bet..sounds like you stumbled upon a idiot with a bit of cash...

You mean you are not planning on buying back in if you lose. I cannot know that in advance, you still have to post if you won or lost.
Thanks for the great story.

My buddy and I went up for the first three days of the DCC this year. Man, what an awesome time we had. My buddy is not that much of an internet creature so I have been calling him all day telling him what I am reading about on the AZB Board. I'm trying to really work him up into a lather with what he is missing by us not being there for the whole thing, so next year I won't have much of a problem convincing him to go. When I told him Corey and Efren played one hole he was really squirming.

Please keep the action reports coming for all of us that love nothing better than to be planted at 4am next to a table with stacks of money on the light...

I just won my match in the 3 round without a loss of a match (or a game). I've been told that the $ starts in either the 4 or 5 round - SO - Even if I were lose my next match in round 4 tomorrow and do a buyback, it would put me into round 5 and the $ won would be more than the $100 buyback. One of these times OldHasBeen is going to run into a "YOUNG IS"!
Gotta go now with my iced up 6 pack cooler of Bud and look for some more idiots.
Supposed to be some good matches tonight - but I have to make sure to get my sleep later like I got a serious chance!

Later, OHB

Keep it going "Old One". Maybe you won't need to buy back at all? I ran into someone who says he knows you very well, Ron Lincoln from the Denver area. He confirmed all you have been posting on AZB about your past is pretty much true. Continued good playing.

Durbin and Joyner have been playing since I got there at 3pm. Joyner was stuck on 2 games up playing 4 ahead for 2 dimes and who knows how much on the rail. When I just left the action room at 1:30AM Durbin was up a game.

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)

Not to chime in for the OHB, but...
Why should he gamble when there are idiots all around?!?!
I wonder if the guy who bet him on the remainder of the set will ever know the odds he was giving up. Nice one OHB. I believe you knows too much.

I really don't play that much anymore and when I do, it is at The Break in Cahokia. Most or all of the St. Louis people you speak of weren’t around when I was in my heyday. I have never said I was a top player. Just a good Hustler and that could never be done in St. Louis. (Think about it)
Anyone who thinks I won't gamble - try a mortgage for $350K, Another for $190K - A multi $K stock portfolio, a business responsible for over $400K in payroll/commissions paid annually & 2 kids in a Private Catholic College (St. Louis University).
THAT'S GAMBLING!

Most gamblers spend a lot of time trying to get even.
Hell, I can't afford to get even & sure don't want to.
I don't have that much money!

Gotta go now and play Alex some One Pocket in round 4.

TY & GL, OHB

I am from St Louis but was not around in OHB heyday. However, after all his talk I did some research into his HASBEEN playing ability. More than a few people described him as the 8 under Louie Roberts but he never had to play more than the last 5 under Louie to get the cash in his hustling. Enough said.

Now, someone go table side for his match against Alex and chant USA USA everytime OHB makes a ball.

He must be called something else then, because we watched the match ourselves, it was on Friday or Saturday..those two days melded together. It was an afternoon match inside the lounge area, just past the entrance on the first table in the first room. The guy he beat resides in St Pete Florida. He calls himself the California Kid or at least thats what he tells folks at the Flamingo in St Pete. The amount may be wrong as I was going on what this guy told me later after they were finished. Of all the people to play, he picked Justin...didnt seem so smart to me but I have been told the guy plays jamup one hole.

(FYI) - My Match With Alex! - 01-10-2006, 01:10 PM

A lot of "First" for this OHB playing "Alex The Lion".

First - We played on the TV table.
Second - We played with the measles cue ball.
Third - We used the Sardo Rack.

The first game set the tone for the match.

Alex won the break flip and I played excellent safety’s to get the score to me +2 & Alex -2 after about 8 innings. I was off on a safety shot by about ¼ inch and Alex ran 10 & out.
Second game - After 9 innings Alex owed 1 and I had 1. Alex kicked 3 rails and made a dead combo in the stack and ran 9 & out.
Third game - He just ran 8 & out from the second shot after the break.

Wow - At one time I actually felt like I was playing Louie back in the '70's. He goes straight for the jugular and shows no mercy. If he does play a safety it is still about 80% offence. This Alex is really a very nice & funny guy to play with.
I was glad to be able to play on the TV table and enjoyed the entire experience.
Now that I'm "In The Money", I hope I draw Efren next. I think I now have these Philippino’s figured out. All I have to do is play perfect, don't miss anything, and hope they are off a little bit.

“Now On To Action”, OHB.
