Scotty Townsend & Country Calvin
Catpool being country calvins brother could prob tell u this story better than I since i heard it from players that was there & wasn't there personally to witness....But 20 sumthin years back Scotty gave Calvin the 7 on the lil table...$1000 a set race to 9..& Scotty won the flip & broke & run 9..they flipped again & Scotty broke & run 9 again..for a total of 18 in a row....They said Calvin was steaming mad..flipping over chairs screamin...G.d Dammit..I still love the game but I'm out of money..lol...I know He musta thought he had the nuts because the line was that it was a even game...so the 7 was way out of line....but u can't win if u don't shoot...lol
Well Troy you pretty well sumed it up, that did happen, I'd say back in 95', over in Monroe,La. after one of the big tournaments they had at Shooters.
Up until that time Calvin always gave Scotty the last two, thats how they had been matchin up for years, was always a coin flip you know as to who would win, but that day Scotty was feeling Cocky and had a stakehorse that wanted to bet something.
Calvin really didn't want to play Scotty, being his home turff-n-all, and besides they usually played 2 or 3 days you know, a very hard game to say the least.
Scotty won the tournament and Calvin was 2nd, Calvin, I believe did have the NUTS if he woulda ever got a shot, cause at that time in his life he could run a 10 pack on the bar box, and getting the wild 7 , maybe more, but if your playing a player that can string 10 or more racks together a spot is useless, unless its the break!( that calibar of players anyway).
But when your outta CASH your outta CASH!, they still had a beer and a shot of whiskey together afterwards!, Scotty, Calvin,Charlie Owens & Me are as tight as you can be with one another, I Love Um All!!!!!!!
