I was referred to the site by 1holenut. I used to play with him and Mike Surber when I lived on the coast. Now I play most of my one pocket in Metropolis Illinois with Buddy Hall and the crew at Sully's. Well, I'm sure I'll be active here in the future, after all, I don't get much one pocket action around here, so I'll have to live vicariously through this site. Maybe I'll come watch in October. Southaven is only 3.5 hours south of me.


Hello Joseph. Welcome! So you must know our buddy Crabcatjohn.

Gotcha, yeah, I knew Jason years ago. I lived on the coast for a few years around Katrina. Love it down there and now my kids live there again. I'll be at Sully's this Saturday and then again for the next 1 pocket tournament. Even if we don't get enough, you know I'll be there on that front table.

Default New Old Guy

Hi All,
Some call me Ozzie, actually my middle name, after the 1930s band leader Ozzie Nelson. I'm 81.
I started playing pool at about 15 yrs old, played a lot in my 20s and 30s, never real good, but one doesn't need to be, to beat most guys hanging around a room. In college I played a lot of 3 cushion.
Up until about two months ago I hadn't played for 40 years!
In a neighborhood blog I saw a guy looking to play pool, 8 ball, 9 ball, one pocket, new in town. One pocket, that caught my attention. I wrote that if I were 20 years younger I'd take him on. After a while he convinced me to give it a try.
Well those balls just wouldn't go to where I was sending them, what the hell.
We've been playing once a week, for about an hour and a half; I get tired, physically and mentally. I started to practice a little, only about 5 hours a week, and the stroke is starting to straighten out. Yesterday we played 5 games and I won the last one! Yaaa! Hal has an eagle eye. He's 70.
We're in Sarasota and there is only one pool room and not many players that we've seen. Haven't seen any one pocket.
I have lots of stories I could tell, unfortunately not about one pocket.
I don't expect to post a lot, but I will read.
Cheers,
Ozzie

Welcome aboard. Feel free to ask questions if you need help navigating around or have one pocket questions. Lots of good pool knowledge on here.
