I grew up in the East and never heard about Mark Tadd until I opened a pool room in Florida. A fellow named Tom Wallace started to come in and he told me he managed College Billiards in San Deigo for a while in the 90`s. He said Tadd would come in from time to time and he just scared the hell out of everybody. Another guy, Marc Masden, a good one pocket player from Kentucky called Tadd "one of the best gamblers in the world". One of those two gentlemen told me that one year Tadd won all three divisions at Derby City, banks, one pocket and nine nall. Does anyone know if that is true? If so, what year? I would also love to hear from anyone with first hand knowledge of how good he played. I keep hearing that he was at the top of the food chain during his heyday.
