Yeah, and when things weren't going so good, one of his favorite expressions was "the damn balls are just spitting at me". Bill always did have a way with words and women.Getnbzy said:I remember "dollar" bill giving Harry P. 9-6 in his own joint around '88-89 and getting the $$$. Funny guy...when things are going good...

I ran around with Stevens back in the 70's. He was an outrageous character.
I don't know the other two, but I know Danny. His bar table speed would make you tired just watching. I have seen him run racks where he never took a free stroke, or seemingly, never even stopped walking between shots. Speed pool at it's finest was his natural gait when he was "right".nitty bitty said:Didn't Horace Harper beat everyone that came through Macon, GA at one time? I heard everyone lost to him - every top player at the time.
On the bar table what about guys Jimmy King or Joe Wofford or even Danny Cook.
gulyassy said:I busted almost every player that I played out of the ones mentioned on this forum. The only one I did not bust was Lots a Papa. He was a little to strong foe me on the bar table. Tommy sanders, Gabby, Liel Gay, Reid Pierce, Chino, I busted while traveling on the road back in the 80's. Most of the players mentioned would not play because they said I played to slow but they knew I would play high. I broke even with Vernon Eliot, Eugene Browning and a few others. Life was awesome back before the cell phone.
The last time I saw Dennis he was living in Livingston,Tn.,and not playing very much any more. He played all games well, but his 8-ball game was excellent.Inaction said:Dennis Haar, Tennessee now?
SD Master Champion at age 14,
VNEA National Master Champion at age 18
Somewhere around Kerville,Texas where I was living back in the early 80's. I do not remember exactly, too many years ago but both Tommy Sanders and Gabby came to try to beat me and I sent them both home broke.punter said:Where did you and Sanders play?

Thats the guy.. we always called him "King Curtis". Played pretty good.plane_o said:In the early 90's there was a Curtis Payne that played in a lot of the tournaments around the Dallas/Ft Worth area. Some called him King Curtis. He always wore a pair of bell bottom jeans. He played good.
