Anyone remember Bill Mielke,or know Wayne Collins? Tommy D.
Yes, I remember Bill Mielke. He played pretty strong. In his day, he seemed to be pretty well known. I don't know what ever happened to him. He was always a threat to place high in any tournament.
The last time I heard anything about Bill, he was in the poolroom one day when 3 Filipinos came in. He ended up playing the #3 player in the group and lost badly. At the time, the Filipino invasion was just starting.
