Unless you have been to Earl's Place in Flint, MI, you can be forgiven for not knowing Jim. He did not travel save to go home to his beloved Tennessee annually to visit family. He was as passionate about One Pocket as anyone on this forum and would share his considerable knowledge with anyone interested enough to spend the time to learn. He was the kind of guy who you really never knew how strong he was because he didn't gamble much and found as much joy in leaving you a shot where you might learn from trying to run out from there as he did winning himself. He was the very definition of altruistic and egoless. He loved one thing more than One Pocket--his family. He died in his sleep Tuesday night of complications from Bladder Cancer. I loved him.
