Great memories, FastEddieF. Do you happen to have any material from the tourney (posters, programs, magazine articles)?

Thanks for doing this Terry, cool to see. I wonder if Pat has the results of all the matches from that tournament? They started off collecting stats for all the pool matches before they started taping them, so I could imagine him having at least the results sitting around somewhere.

Also, wow, what a poster! If anyone knows of one that someone is willing to part with, let me know...

No wish I did.

If posters could talk...thanks for putting this up. Back in the day I bought quite a few of those matches and sat at the knee of the masters as I tried to learn this great game.

btw, decent pool tables are hard to find in London, much less a decent one pocket game, but the last two times I've been over there visiting my wife's family, I've matched up with Rico Dix at the Hurricane near King's Cross. He's more of a lapsed 9 ball and 14.1 shooter, but he likes 1p and you might be able to entice him into a friendly game for a few quid.


Cheers,

I've had some time to spare so I watched again all of my DVDs from Legends of One Pocket II Philadelphia style 1991 (the one that Steve Cook won), with a view to reconstructing the brackets from the commentary and my observations of the players on adjacent tables. I managed to identify all of the matches from the last 32 and up. However, it gets a lot harder for the earlier stages as the only match that appears to have been recorded from the first round is Jersey Red v Bob Osborne. So here you go.

Code:
Winner			Loser				Stage		Score	Date		Commentary
Steve Cook		Steve Mizerak			F		5-2	21/07/1991	Bill Incardona, Grady Mathews, Buddy Hall
Steve Cook		Allen Hopkins			SF		5-4	21/07/1991	not taped
Steve Mizerak		Nick Varner			SF		5-2	21/07/1991	Bill Incardona, Grady Mathews
Nick Varner		Jimmy Fusco			QF		5-4	20/07/1991	Grady Mathews, Jimmy Fusco
Steve Mizerak		Pete Fusco			QF		5-2	20/07/1991	not taped
Allen Hopkins		Danny Diliberto			QF		5-3	20/07/1991	Bill Incardona, Bill Staton
Steve Cook		Buddy Hall			QF		5-4	20/07/1991	not taped
Nick Varner		Mike  LeBron			last 16		5-?	20/07/1991	not taped
Jimmy Fusco		Jim Rempe			last 16		5-0	20/07/1991	Freddy Bentivegna, Lou Butera
Steve Mizerak		Bill Incardona			last 16		5-4	20/07/1991	no commentary
Pete Fusco		Johnny Ervolino			last 16		5-?	20/07/1991	not taped
Allen Hopkins		Roger Griffis			last 16		5-?	20/07/1991	not taped
Danny Diliberto		Ralph Carnes			last 16		5-?	20/07/1991	not taped
Steve Cook		Leonard Bugs Rucker		last 16		5-3	20/07/1991	no commentary
Buddy Hall		Grady Mathews			last 16		5-?	20/07/1991	not taped
Nick Varner		Frank Di Giorgio (sp)		last 32		5-?	19/07/1991	not taped
Mike LeBron		Eddie Holden (sp)		last 32		5-?	19/07/1991	not taped
Jimmy Fusco		William "Jopling" Marshall	last 32		5-?	19/07/1991	not taped
Jim Rempe		Scotty Townsend			last 32		5-?	19/07/1991	not taped
Steve Mizerak		John "Cornflakes" Hennigan	last 32		5-0	19/07/1991	no commentary
Bill Incardona		Dick Weaver			last 32		5-?	19/07/1991	no commentary
Pete Fusco		Bill Hendrixson			last 32		5-?	19/07/1991	no commentary
Johnny Ervolino		Mike Sigel			last 32		5-4	19/07/1991	Grady Mathews, Buddy Hall, Cornbread Red
Allen Hopkins		Bill "Weenie Beenie" Staton	last 32		5-4	19/07/1991	not taped
Roger Griffis		Billy "Cornbread Red" Burge	last 32		5-?	19/07/1991	not taped
Danny Diliberto		Freddie Bentivegna		last 32		5-4	19/07/1991	not taped
Ralph Carnes		Ronnie Allen			last 32		5-?	19/07/1991	not taped
Steve Cook		Warren "Monk" Costanzo		last 32		5-4	19/07/1991	not taped
Leonard "Bugs" Rucker	Frank "Crazy Frank" Piasecki	last 32		5-3	19/07/1991	not taped
Buddy Hall		Lou Butera			last 32		5-1	19/07/1991	Bill Incardona, Ron Williams
Grady Mathews		Jaffar "Patch-eye" Basheer	last 32		5-?	19/07/1991	not taped
Apparently, Cecil, Efren, and a bunch of other great players bit to dust in the early stages of the tourney. I know that Strawberry lost to Dick Weaver in the first round but who beat Cecil and Efren? Does anyone know?

I hope you guys will find the thread useful as I couldn't find diddly-squat on this tourney elsewhere. I will try to do the same for the first LOP tourney (won by Allen Hopkins) some time next year.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

Cheers,
Terry
I pulled up my spreadsheet of accustats, that was a period I was an especially active collector. Looking over it briefly I do not think my list answers any of your questions. I hope my list helps.

I was actually friends, or maybe more like sparring aquaintences, with Cecil. I do not know who beat him though.

Pat is good at responding to my emails with DVD orders but less so otherwise. Perhaps, someone on this forum can ask him and get a response?

Thanks Michael. I do usually play at the Hurricane's near King's Cross, being the closest pool hall to my workplace.

You are right about the pool tables - they are not the best and the usual high humidity amplifies that a great deal but there we are.

It's really hard to get any one-pocket action in London indeed so thank you for the tip-off. I haven't played Rico Dix.

Cheers,
Terry

Thanks for the trouble El Chapo. A nice collection of those early matches you have.

P.S. I've just learned that Jersey Red lost to Lou Butera in the second round.
