Nick Varner Interview by Samm Diep - 09-20-2010, 09:47 PM

I really enjoyed the interview that Samm did with Nick Varner. I understand better than ever what made Nick the champion that he is.

Great questions, Samm!

I'll second that. Nick'a usually mentioned when we consider the greatest all-around players ever, and he still might be underrated at that!


"He knew what those jubilant crowds did not know, but could have learned from books; that the plague bacillus never dies or disappears for good...and that perhaps the day would come when, for the bane and the enlightening of men, it would rouse up its rats again and send them forth to die in a happy city."

Great questions, Samm!
Thanks, Joey! But I can't take credit for his great answers. This was probably one of my favorites. He's VERY insightful and gave incredibly thoughtful answers.

Great stuff. I have always admired Nick from the first time I met him in 1980.

Great job Samm.

Great find for us who don't peek around other areas of AZB much. Thanks Joey for your recon for us!

And that was a great read on varner, who is undisputedly one of pools all-time great players. He's the only pro that has won major titles in all 5 main pocket disciplines. 14.1, 9 ball, 8 ball, 1P & banks.

I've written, called and e-mailed Billiards Digest several times over the years to please to an in depth "Mike Gefner" type article on Nick. Nothing back yet. Thanks much Samm for the wonderful info on Nick.

Nick is one of the real success stories in pool. Great career, still not done. Hard working business man that put's many miles down selling his products and services. Good job, Samm.
