I'm enjoying the Don Willis thread so much that I'd like to hear more about Worst other than the little I've found online.
YES..................HAROLD WORST IS MY VOTE FOR THE GREATEST POOL/CAROM PLAYER EVER
Now you're talking about a real pool player....who drilled 'em all. And he bet his own money.
Furthermore, there won't be any BS tales from pool room detectives spooked out on cheap muscatel, about some 'red hot' shooting any cue balls "out of the window upstairs and the ball rolling down the street in the gutter to hit an object ball previously placed there".
Worst was a mainline hitter..he just had a gift for this game. I saw him at Johnston City the year before the IRS busted the place, I think it was. Not sure about the year.
It was a shame that he passed away so young.
A very good posting and most enjoyable. Thank you.
Ronnie Allen gave an interview and talked a lot about Worst. Said he BBQ Willis 11-5 and 11-6. Allen also called him the best player he had ever seen. But hey, what would Allen know about pool players.
