      Let me reiterate. As a courtesy to the forum people and your multitude (sic) of fans, I would include your contribution if:

      "Since you and I have no shared experiences, whatever Bio appears -- under "S," will have to be self-provided by you -- or somebody else."

      Doesn't anybody wuv you enough to chronicle you? Fast Lenny? If Fast Lenny does it, tell him to leave Frankie the dog out of it. Since she is a doxie, the dog can have her own spot.

              It might be...But I'll tell you what it WON'T be, it won't be a memo pad, from the Executive West, signed by Scott Frost saying ....
              "Thanks Dick, for teaching me how to to play one pocket"... (a thinly veiled comparison only. )

              I don't know why I bother..I'm sure this also, will 'sail right over your head'..AGAIN !...

                    Bobby Riggs/Billy Jean King
                    Did he toss that match?
                    I got it from a near-unimpeachable source that the Bobby Riggs/Billy Jean King, celebrated Tennis match was a dump. I got it from a guy that used to keep Bobby Riggs broke; I won't give his name even though he's dead. His nickname was, "The Fat Man." He was a champion golf hustler. He was not the pool player/hustler, Minnesota Fats.
                    In the 60s, the lifetime proposition- hustler and con man, Bobby Riggs, had an interest in an unrelated business venture in Ft Lauderdale back then. I was hanging out at the Miscue Lounge in Ft. Lauderdale with pool and golf hustlers, and other assorted thieves that knew and associated with Bobby. That group included the Fat Man.
                    The Fat Man said Lamar Hunt paid Bobby off to toss the match. Lamar was the backer of the Women’s Tennis Association which took off like a rocket after Bobby lost. If anyone recalls, after Bobby beat Margaret Court the first female champion he played, there was absolutely no buzz about it, but when he lost to Billy Jean, it got world-wide attention, and women's tennis came to life. Before that match, the women were playing for a hot dog and a coke. I wouldn’t have snitched that off, as it is an absolute violation of the “Hustler’s Code,” except many years have gone by and most of the constituents are dead.

                    The book is months away from publication. Periodically I will drop a few more morsels to 1pkt.org.
                    I had similar feeling about Sigel playing Lori Jon Jones for the Trudeau Dough. I thought Sigel should of played Allison Fisher and lost. At that time he would of had his hands full anyway. It could also have been a Game Changer for pool simliar to the Color of Money, and the Hustler.

                      That may have been a guy named George. Can't think of his last name. If it's the guy I knew of, we used to see him down at Mr. Pockets on 6th St. in L.A. He both chauffeured and bodyguarded Specter. He was a scary looking SOB, but wasn't too nasty to people he liked. He used a 36 ounce cue! Yet he had a light touch with it, and said he even used it for snooker!

                        Unless you plan on putting the golf hustling stories in your book, which I will of course buy like the first two, can you post a few more stories of the golf hustlers you knew?

                        For those who like gambling stories, read the section in Rick Reilly's "Who's Your Caddy?" book about how high they bet in Vegas. One story talks about a poker player bringing 400k in cash and waving it to his opponents saying "You ready to bet this much?". He later says " That always putts a tremble in their stroke"

                        Titanic Thompson was also a fantastic golfer for the dough.

                          That has to be the guy. He played a little and staked a little at Ye Billiard Den.

                            Sorry Bud, I dont have many golf stories. Those golf hustlers that hung out at the Miscue Lounge in Lauderdale, along with the Fat Man, made their headquarters at the Plantation Golf Course. They used to like to travel with Sugar Shack and me when we were out hustling the bars. They loved to see people getting beat so much that they would pay for all the drinks and expenses, and didnt want any cut of the money Sugar and I would win.

                                I was not easy to trap. I usually played everybody anyway. Those that I didnt know and was suspicious about I made them play bank pool, so it didnt much matter who they were. I knew all the guys that could beat me playing banks.

                                The only guy who almost trapped me was Jack Cooney. At the Congress Bowl, h
                                He laid it down great and I was definitely going to go for it. Unfortunately for him he went to the bathroom and a stinkin' sweater snitched him off. Even tho he saved me I still cursed the knocker out.
