Jay, you have an excellent memory. Your story about Sherrie Hudson is spot on. She played in my room when I first opened. You are right about her bad habits and she did date Gabby for awhile. I first played Gabby at Le Cue in 1971 when Hawaiian Brian and I were on the road. He would have been about 15 years old at that time so he would be about 63 now if alive. We played 5 ahead and I got drilled pretty quick. I got the money back in One Pocket and stayed clear of him thereafter. He was a better nine baller than one pocket player. The Barber and Bigfoot played pretty close and Gabby was right there with them back in the day. I never heard of Gabby taking pool too seriously such that he could really find out what his game could become. He'd make a score and go on drug binges for weeks and months at a time. He only played when he got broke. What a great nickname for a guy...........He never talked too much.
