    Bill Cress

    I haven't seen Bill in a few years. I first met him at Hard Times in Bellflower several years ago & got thumped playing one pocket & nine-ball. He was around San Francisco a few years ago for quite a while, but I have not seen him since. I thought he was still up in the Seattle area. I know he was in Portland for quite a while before he came down to CA, so maybe he is back there. I stick pretty close to home anymore (Sacramento area) & wouldn't see him unless he came around here.

      Thanks JR.

      I do know that Bill is in Portland and has been for a few months. I like the guy and was wondering how he was doing.

        I heard about two months ago in Portland, that Bill Cress is staying with his sister in the Seattle area...also heard his health was not real good.

          Thanks for the info. I know that Bill's sister lives in Monroe and he stayed there a lot when he was up in my neck of the woods. I hadn't heard about his health problems though. If you hear anything please let me know and I will do the same.

              Hey Steve, good to see ya found this site.

              You have to have a wealth of 1P knowledge, didn't you run the Florida 1P tour a few years ago? and didn't Nick Varner win all the events?

              Please share some of your stories with us... we're drooling over the anticipated gems.

              Thanks
