I gather this is a Single elimination tournament?

Bill,

I use to play at High Pockets on Brooks and then when they moved to Old Summer Rd. when Jim Strickland owned it.

I played there in the early to late 80s and stopped in on road trips in the early 90s after it was sold.

Saw some of your matchups during the 80s and I remember you being a very good player.

This is a double elimination event. Due to the large entry there will be maybe 12-16 players, hence, not a problem getting done in two days.

And yes, in '84 Rosey (charles rosenblatt) and myself bought a room in southaven ms and have been there every since. I bought rosey out but he comes in every day as do most of the older locals, kenard mays, robert leblanc, and james christopher has moved back for the winter.

Bill, does your establishment have a website? If not, perhaps you could post some pictures of your room. We'd all love to see it.

Default deadline

The deadline is sat at 1:00 p.m. This is a good pay-out for a few players and a weak field (no AAA's have been coming). We're 20 minutes from Tunica to help your nut?!? If you love one-pocket and have the week-end off come on over. Call bill 901-277-3740. Blackee, sanders, sal, liljon, tater, kim, it don't get no easier than this!!! Doc, I'll get some pictures posted before the next tournament. We are in a safe location, building is nothing to look at, but inside is very comfortable with plenty of seating and viewing of #1 table on big t.v. at the bar. We have 15 gold crowns, 1 diamond, and 5 bar tables. THANKS FOR THE INTEREST TO KEEP THIS GOING MONTHLY. BILL

Bill, when are you going to buy some of my books so your customers can learn how to bank, and I can get a little even from when Vernon Eliot robbed me in that joint playing banks? You had to be in with him. Vernon did let me win a little bit back in Hot Springs AR. Three whole games before he quit
($60).

And I always thought that you were in Nova Scotia.

Edited to ask: If you're in MISSISSIPPI, why does the title of this thread read: "Memphis One-pocket August 11th, 12th"
It's all so confusing.

Default "Freddie "the hit man", I'll pay UP!

Just let me stay open til next week and I'll get you da money! Interest?.?Oh yeah, I'll pay dat to!

To Tampa Man, my error, thanks. We are in the north west corner of mississippi, which joins tennessee at Memphis. My pool room is 50 yds from the south of memphis and one block off I-55.

Thanks for reading this add. I think we'll have maybe 16 players this month. That will bring the purse to $4,000 and make 1st worth $2500 with 3rd and 4th getting their money back.
