Best Super Senior 1 Pocket player?
 
For all our wise members here, in your opinion who plays the best 1 hole that is at least 70 years old? 75 years old?

I hope I don't ruin anyone's action, but its not like any of these guys are new kids on the block.;)

In honor of the 50th anniversary of Johnson City, maybe there should be a King of (Over) the Hill Challenge table at the Derby. Valid ID required.:D

My best guess would be that #1. in that age group could very well be 'Little Al' at Hard Times in L.A.

Nope....with all due respect to Danny - he could not win playing Little Al One Pocket.

My good friend John recently turned 70 and shoots as straight as can be. He's not a gambler, but he might be very interested in a challenge/tournament format.

Ok, here's my picks

Best player in their 60s - Jose Parica or Nick Varner
Best senior citizen (at least 65) - Buddy Hall or Cardone
Best player in their 70s - Little Al with John H a close 2nd
Best player at least 75 - San Jose Dick

Am I way off base?

I talked about this once about 6-7 years ago with a couple of guys...at that time I believed the best 70 or older One Pocket players were Jaffar 'Patcheye' Basheer and John Henry...maybe Squirrel also.

I can't see anyone around his age beating beating Little Al, especially at Hard Times in Bellflower. I might give him a tussle on my home court but would be taking a little the worst of it.

His 9 ball game is not too shabby either.

Last time I saw PatchEye play was maybe 3 yrs ago. He played JAM up, solid A speed. I heard he had a stroke since then, and I don't know how well he plays now. But he was definitely in his 70's at the time.

I don't know how old John Henry was back in 86-87 but he was the only player that I ever saw run 7 balls on the very tight 5X10 snooker table that was the primary gambling table in that room at that time. This includes(if memory serves correctly) Cornbread, Grady, Jimmy Reid, Miami, Horseface Harry, Cowboy Dennis, Chicken, Natural, Watson & several others.

John played strong.
