Good story.I've battled Gary S. a few times,I also locked horns with CJ the first time he came around these parts.I gave Gary a lesson on how to play full racks banks on a bar table,9 to 7. He didn't much like it either

Thanks about my break I use to have I was known for my break back then but when I was not hitting them perfectly I would jump the table every now and then and it cost me some matches so I got smart (or dumb) and started to take some speed off and lost that big booming break I had.Don't know if it helped or hurt really.John B.

Yes that's me, 6'6'' and still slim, with respect of the game and my opponent, I just try and bring it with no BS. Age thing now, I'm not sure about that. 63 next mth.

You were respectful and a pleasure to play. Your break reminded me of Medina in his prime bar table days.
Have a great 4th.

John I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts on my shot selection. Having grown up in IL and close to Chicago, banks was a large part of my earlier yrs. Back then it was always full rack, safe break, so the free shot was normally my first choice of shot.

So you did play banks! So how come you would only play me 9 Ball?

Same reason you wouldn't play me 14.1 or 9 ball, plus I was a youngster when you and Mexican Johnny were doing your thing. Used to love it every time Joey Gold and Spencer came to carbondale, they were 50 ball runners at the time, I was always in the 80's. Been talking to Gieske these past few weeks (he's had serious health problems) and he'll live his life out in a wheel chair and from the sound of it may not be with us much longer, tho U never know. We chatted about Brandolino a bit, and U of course. You and Artie tortured him in the 60's (one hole) but he got allot better with time.

Say hello to Dennis Gieske. We played a 24 hr all night match at Bensingers, late 60s early 70s. I thought that might have been you, but I am now pretty sure it was Dennis. Things get a little hazy when you go back far enough.

[QUOTE=John Brumback

Here's a good one too.A few years ago at the DCC,I'm out pretty far in the banks,playin good.I'll just tell you who this was right now.Luat.I've never had problems with any other pinos.Well we get to playin our match and I noticed he wouldn't set down.He just kept leaning on his cue like he was getting ready to start a foot race and close to the table,I might add,like I was making him wait so HE could shoot.I let it go for as long as I could which would be way to long.About the second or third game,I told him It's my turn to shoot, set down in your chair please,your making me nervous.That's what I told him.Would you belive he still wouldn't and didn't.I said look,we have rules over here that you must be in your chair when the opp is at the table.He said I don't care about them rules or something like that.I started to go get Ken but I didn't want to look like an ass,(that sounds kinda stupid))He never did touch his seat. Guess what,It's 2 to 2 his break,he runs out.I couldn't make a ball it sharked me so much.Well I got him back a couple years later with the ole double dip in the finals.That felt extra good.
Got somemore good ones.Happy trails to you John B.[/QUOTE]

I was always a big fan of Luat and Andam. Hardly ever hear any stories about either of them. And for sure, THAT was an "interesting" story, to say the least! He seems (ON TAPE ) to be so quiet and reticent. He's got a little rascal in him after-all!

Thanks for sharing your stories with us John. Always love the behind the scenes goings on from the great players perspective!

Do you have anything you can share with us about you and Shannon either hunting or fishing (for game & fish, not victims on the pool table! ) I'd bet being with you two in a field or on a boat would be a hoot!
