  • 1994 US Open Onepocket Video - Bugs Rucker - Dean Moore

    Well, here we go ! These matches are brought to you by sappo from this site. He shipped the VHS tapes to me and I converted them over to be able to upload to Vimeo. Since youtube has a 15 min restriction (unless you get lucky and the remove it), I uploaded to Vimeo so they can be shown in their entirety. These VHS tapes were from the owner of the Billiard Playground, who taped some of the matches when the US Open was held there, in Kalamazoo, MI.

    For some unknown reason, there is no audio on the tapes. As far as the quality, keep in mind these were taken with 17-20 year old technology as far as camcorders, plus you got the tape degradation from 17 years of sitting around, the conversion from tape to digital format and the uploading to Vimeo. Considering all of that, these matches are perfectly fine to get to watch some great onepocket from our players of almost 2 decades ago.

    The tournament details: (thanks to Mark Griffin for the details, maybe more to come)
    Aug 25-28th at Billiards Playground in Kalamazoo, MI.
    Grady was the Tournament Director. A article mentions Ed Hall was the owner, but Matt Rosendahl was heavily involved.
    $100 entry
    39 player field
    $10,200 in prize money
    Billy Incardona was the winners bracket winner and came in 2nd to Joyner.
    1st -Cliff Joyner $2,800
    2nd -Billy Incardona ($2,000)
    3rd -Willie Munson ($1,500)
    4th -Grady Mathews ($1,000)
    5-6th -Ritchie Richeson $500
    5-6th -Cornbread Red $500

    All of the matches will be grouped together in a album on my Vimeo site. You can get to the album here

    For our 2nd matchup, we got the infamous Bugs Rucker playing Dean Moore. Bugs, as you know, was one of the best bank pool players that ever lived. I haven't watched it yet, but as I was editing it and finding the end, I saw him bank the last 2 balls in to win the match. He did so with incredible ease. Can't wait to see where he was at with his game in that time period.

    Dean Moore, I think was from Atlanta, Florida. Read a post by corvette1340 from AZB that said he staked a lot of players and was a bit of a tush hog.

    Bugs Rucker - Dean Moore - Running time 40 mins.

    Moore was never in it, and was shooting up in the air by the third game. Bugs showed he was a fine one-pocket player, as well as a fantastic banker. Best banker I ever saw -
    If it ain't funny, it ain't much.

          Cali; Nice video, but I had to stop watching after 25 minutes, too sad to watch Bugs playing poorly. I'd say about 40% of his past speed from the 70's, his health must of been failing then, and he didn't even know it! If your a player, the cue games are a great barometer for one's health gauge!

                  Greg, the quality of these is right up there with a lot of the recent non-professional stuff -- I wouldn't have expected this from converted old VHS. These are better than some of the new non-pro in some ways just because the camera angle is solid, lol.

                    That might be A Dean Moore...But that's not the Dean Moore from Atlanta that I know. Anybody see Buggs foul the cueball on that little cross corner bank? He pushed the cball about 2 inches. Maybe they didn't call that a foul though back then.John B.
