Dave Matlock should be in the Billiard Hall of Fame


Unquestionably one of the best bar box players of all time. Came to my tournament in Indy this weekend and not only played great but he was an absolute pleasure to be around. I will start a petition or pester whomever to see this happen.

I've known Dave 30yrs and am lucky to have him as a friend. His skills at all games not just barbox are world-class. He's also a good teacher. If you're near Olathe,Ks. call 'em up(Shooter's) and get a little instruction from Dave. I'm really amazed that he's still bringin' that firepower at 68. Awesome.

He cashed big at the at IPT event at Venetian in Las Vegas in 2006 for 30 large. I remember it because I was there! He flew in his fiancé at the time to watch him compete. That was, of course, 8-ball on the 9-footers.

Here's a shot I took of them. She is/was a news reporter in the area where Dave lives. They were building a house together, and that 30 large I am sure came in handy.
