I learned to play pool on a snooker table. I started out at about 11 and played several times a week until hormones took over. The it was back seat bingo.

Boy, do I miss having a pool table in my living room. Many misspent hours playing my favorite game, 9-Ball. If you appreciate the game, you’ll love this. Efren Reyes, the legendary Philippine shooter, making a shot to bounce back from a terrible mistake he made in the deciding game of the final round in a major tournament event.

I was there to see it with my own eyes. One of the greatest clutch shots you may ever see.

Yes Ripper, I’ve seen some of his shooting (Magic Shots). He is one of the best there is!

Many, many years ago I saw Willie Masconi put on a show in Rapid City, SD. I was quite young and it took place in a pool hall everyone called “The Hole.” It was in a basement of a multistory bldg. and was quite large. As I recall he was employed by Brunswick. He put on a good show and was very kind to all and had a patient manner with the kids.

Jerry: Willie Masconi is a Legend in His own time. He’s played Ronnie a few times. I think they BOTH have a lot of Respect for each other!
