I tip my hat to Nick Varner
I won't say best ever. But the man has always been my idol in this game.
He isn't possessed of some supernatural ability that just carried him to the top. He always just struck me as an ordinary guy that played his heart out every shot. He worked super hard on his game and willed his way to the top, for a while dominated not just in 9 ball but all disciplines.
Best of all, he is the most humble and down to earth player out there. Always a good word to say about the other players, never making excuses.
I know he is hall of fame, and I know he has many records. But I still think he deserves more credit as he is such an outstanding representative of the game.
Good choice, Nick Varner plays really good pool. He is down to earth too. Like Buddy Hall.
Lock N Load.
