Danny with fellow One Pocket HOF’er Grady Mathews

Danny is originally from Buffalo, NY, where he honed his skills playing mostly Straight Pool and 9-Ball. He didn’t really become acquainted with One Pocket until his arrival at Johnston City in 1964. However, he showed a quick understanding of the game, and soon found it very well-suited to his strong all-around skills and intelligent style of play.

* As a tournament player, Danny came out on top in two major One Pocket events:

  •   1983 Tampa FL All-Around One Pocket Division
  •   1985 Sid Mann’s Austin World One Pocket

* As an After Hours Player, Danny has matched up with players all over the country; at one time or another having been on the road with most of the top road players of his era.

In 1988 Danny was featured in a $20,000 One Pocket challenge match with Ronnie Allen promoted by Jay Helfert that is still available on video tape.

* Through his frequent commentary work, Danny has brought his very entertaining and informative style to many viewers, educating the many One Pocket players that watch and study intently.

  • Danny demonstrates to fellow announcer Tony Annigoni, and Billiard Club Network viewers, how to tell when a cross-corner bank is a kiss.
