I think it was Magnolia, but could be wrong.

There were two rooms fairly close to each other in the late 60's. The main room was North Hollywood Billiards, owned by Tiff Payne. The front of the room had pool and I think snooker. The back was all billiards-- around 10 tables.

The second room (who I erroneously thought Harry Sims owned) was east of there-- possibly on Vineland or Cahuenga, south of Magnolia. It had some pool tables and approx. 3 billiard tables. Tile floor. The room wasn't as nice as was Tiff's. How long it lasted, I don't know, but probably not as long as N. Hyd Billiards.

John H, have you ever played Ricky Byrd? I would think that would be a good action match for you, if you had to make a long trip.

Never did play him, but watched him play at DCC a few years back. The only chance of playing him would be if I ever make it back to the Derby again and he was there.
