Just A BS Artist - 05-10-2009, 09:50 AM

I really shouldnít let the Johnnyt is a BS artist bother me, but it does a little bit. No Iím not well known like Jay or Freddy the Beard who played just about all comers, and I didnít want to be. I wasnít as good as of them either. I have admitted time and time again on here that if I knew a place where top players from the area and tough action wasÖI avoided it like the Plague. I wasnít playing pool to bang heads with players I couldnít or probably couldnít beat. I was in it purely for the money. Yes I loved the game, loved the hustle, but making money at it always came first for me. If you were seen playing with well-known top money players (even if you lost to them) the easy action would dry up very fast. If thatís a nit in your book, so be it.

I have played many top players over the years like Buddy Hall, Mike S, Allen Hopkins, C M Lee, and many more, both men and women pros. Like I said in many threads on here over the years, I mostly only played them after I made a good score at the dog or horse track. Never out of pool winnings. Pool winnings always got reinvested quickly for something of value or resale value. If any of them want to come forward that would be fine.

Iíve stated on here before that I always reinvested my pool winnings on something of value. Iíve also stated I owned or was partners on a little less than 200 Racing Greyhounds, that ranged in price from $2500 to $26,000 each. I am a partner in ownership still on Dodgem By Design, the second top-producing stud dog in the world. He has brought in over $700,000 in racing winnings and stud fees so far. We paid $24,500 for him at the National Greyhound Auction if I remember right. Most Greyhound players have seen my name (John W. Terrell) in the programs at many Greyhound tracks around the country. Iím sure Charter Kennel, Red Rock Kennel, Marriott Kennel, just to name three out of probably 30 kennels Iíve had dogs with and Iím sure will vouch for me.

Over the years Iíve staked some top players 50/50 and many more both male and female that I just helped with expenses to enter and travel to tournaments, asking for nothing in return. Some are members of AZ, most are not to my knowledge.

I said on here that I did some writing. Go to Amazon.com and other online bookstores and you will find my work. The story ďHustling Under the RadarĒ is a true story, the rest are mostly fiction.

As far as anything mob related that I said on hereÖforget about it, Iím not going there. Johnnyt

What happened? Did somebody make an unsavory comment about you in another thread?

FWIW, I always thought of you as a stand-up kind of guy!

never went hunting tough action myself - 05-10-2009, 10:21 AM

Johnny,

I too played pool for the money. I enjoyed the game but I enjoyed making money at it more. Although I played a few top players it was because they came to me, I didn't go looking for them. Early in my gambling days I made the mistake of getting into tough action at Greenway. It was all the buzz every time I visited my usual haunts up and down Plank and Airline for a few weeks and action was thinner than thin. There was always somebody that had been at Greenway or heard about it to clue in their buddies. I had to go to the far reaches of my usual 50-75 mile radius to find a game. I took the lesson to heart and never showed any speed at Greenway again!

I don't have anything to prove to anyone. If I am in the mood to talk on here I do. Folks can believe or disbelieve, no skin off of my bottom. I advise taking the same attitude yourself. There will always be scoffers.

Hu

I didn't see what was said and in what thread it was on. This is the only time I know that someone has said something negative about JohnnyT. Maybe there is a reason for that. I know Johnny only from here but has always seemed like a good, knowlegable guy that does not try to start fights. I have nothing but respect for him as I do many others who post one here. I just wanted to make that point of my own opinion of JohnnyT, I have no idea who made these comments about you but just like alot of posts on here you can't take em too personal.

http://forums.azbilliards.com/showthread.php?t=140034

I personally don't think JT was bs'ing *at all* -- I think it was a nice achievement on JT's part, and my post genuinely (and in places, humorously) congratulated him on a job well done. However, a "knight who says 'nay'" followed-up my post.

JT: just to avoid situations like this in the future, you might want to capture these runs on video and post the link. Those "knights who say 'nay'" will then have nothing to say.

I just do not understand why some members seem to enjoy hurting other people's feelings and/or causing them anger.

Here's a man, Johnnyt, who has shared his pool stories with all of us on this forum many times over. I have always enjoyed reading his posts.

He relays a happy pool experience, and then somebody seems to want to make him feel bad. SHAME ON THEM!

Johnnyt, don't let them get you down. You're very much a part of the fabric which makes up AzBilliards Discussion Forum. Keep on posting and know that the majority of the members of this forum enjoy you being here.

Well said, you can't let the jealous ones knock you down. These forums are a strange place once you get involved and it is easy to rattle someones cage. JT you are one of the great posters and frankly I could care less if the stories you post are real or not. I have read the true ones from amazon and the fiction and I like them all.

It is because some people are just turds. They enjoy running their mouth about others because they are either jealous or have no self-worth.

But hey, he should be an authority on great play........the guy is a 7 in APA.

Johnnyt - You're one of my favorite posters. Your enthusiasm for the game is infectious and your posts are always upbeat. You're the kind of guy I'd love to get to know, and I'm sure many others feel the same way. Don't let one sour apple spoil the AZB experience for you.
