ESPN WORLD OPEN CHAMPION
Yes, pool has a rich past and lots of colorful characters for sure. The reason I have the knowledge and understanding to put this project together is because of playing the 2 Foul game with players like Billy Johnson, Toby Sweet, Reid Pierce, Weldon Rogers LA Keith, and other legendary gamblers.Sorry if this comes across as ignorant but I am new here and don’t have much background on your venture other than understanding that your trying to “reinvent” the game to bring excitement and fresh eyes I suppose, to it....is that somewhat accurate?? If so, the 45 min video that you speak of, can I see it perhaps?? I love the idea of shining a spotlight back onto “this thing of ours....” (see what I did there...) and reintroducing the game (and whatever this exciting new one that your working on will be) to the new generation as well as reigniting the passion, but this time on a much broader scale, within the guardians of yesteryear, at least the ones still with us. It’s sad to watch such a storied pastime fade into oblivion when the reality of it is, it’s true story (and many many colorful stories and their colorful characters) have almost never even been told yet! And if we don’t shine that light on it very soon, unfortunately we will no longer have anyone around with us that can actually tell those stories first hand! It’s sad but it doesn’t have to be!
(Sorry for rambling but the whole concept gets me fired up!) But long story short, if there is anything or anyway that you could use another body, or brain to get involved in any fashion, I would love to have the opportunity to be a part of something like this in any capacity. In fact it would be an honor to do so. But if not, you gained just one more supporter regardless who’s pulling for you and wishes you all the success coming to you. I have no doubt that with your passion you will succeed either way!
I'm not to the point to release the video to anyone, there are some legal issues I'm dealing with first. Right now I'm getting some great players together to play the game as much as possible and fine tune anything that needs refining. I'm confident that I've developed a superb model, and I'm also the type that is willing to improve myself, or my businesses with new, well proven information. I'm a dedicated researcher and spend several hours a day reading and digging for the truth. This is quite a job when you get started because you start realizing many things that you thought were true for sure, are not.
I'd like to see you get involved because having a passion for the game is a prerequisite that I'm looking for, along with a specific skill set. Today I had several people contact me that were advanced in different areas, from TV production, technical prowess to logo and artwork specialists and even a professional poker player. I'm good friends with the man that runs the World Series of Poker, so I've been to Vegas and went with him to meet some poker players that may get involved once we have a tested model.
We'll talk soon Roy, thanks for reaching out, I appreciate you!
