It is the same guy 98 or 99 was when I played him, I bet he does play good now. I played Griffis in Phx maybe 10 days prior to playing Brian, I had 1 game on the wire racing to 5 and went 2 sets to 2 sets with him, when the kid (Brian) got done with me I didn't even know what to say. I won 1 or 2 games to his 10 and I think those came from just wild kicking at balls and getting a break. It is one of the times that sticks in your mind I never got to look at a ball. The three cushion player that he hung out with was the best 3 cushion player I have ever seen and his pocket games were plenty strong enough but I don't remember his name. I always liked Oklahoma because usually even if you ran into a strong player you could beat him with money and the side action with all the old timers was crazy . The match was for $100 and the side action was $5-6K. There was another guy in Oklahoma City that may have made the list if could remember his name the thing is every time I ran into him he was drunk and I would set a time limit going in and would walk on him for 2 hours. Once he was sober he played world class I just don't know if he was ever sober to start a match and he traveled with a backer in the same condition.catpool9 said:At the time back in "99 or 2000"? Brian Jones was still just a young fella, he and my brother Counrty Calvin played some 9-ball in Texarkana,Ar. after a big tournament we had, and Brian was 5 sets ahead for $3 an $500.00 , was just one set from busting Country, but Country out lasted him that time,and came back and won all his $ back+ $1,800.00...
I remember he gave Brian $200.00 to go back to Tulsa on, but that kid/man ..Now can play!
