I'm in College Station at Fast Eddies looking for action. The guy at the bar said I need to drive Houston for 1P action. And I said "what, and look for Sylver.

He said Scott Frost gave him 9/8 or 8/7 and robbed him. He also said Sylver was the 2nd ranked 1P player in the country. I dont think thats true but was wondering what the players in the know think.

PS a room full of Olhausen tables, yuk.

Don't know that I would rank him as #2, but he has done quite well at tournments and is always in action somewhere. Also you must remember Scott Frost may well be the best out there right now.---Smitty

I would rank Sylver in the top 5 in the world. He plays at Big tyme Billiards in Houston as a regular.

Hey Ace, how are you? You would never believe what all has happen to me since we last saw each other. I have moved 3 times following my wife's work, Pleaston, Victoria and now in the hell hole of the world, Monahans.
I had a bout with tonsil cancer, had to go through the whole process of chemo, which by the way, don't check that square on things to do. Radiation , which is another do not sign up for on your cruise through life. But praise be to GOD, cancer is gone or as we say in remission. It has been a year since last treatment and all the doctors and there are a bunch say everything is fine so far. I had to quit playing pool for almost 9 months as I was too weak to stand t the table for over 15 minutes, but I am playing alot now and everything is good. I see you post now and then on here, I just haven't had too much to add the the threads, so just lurked about.

I think Sylver is a very solid tournament player. I would rank him in the top 10 but not top 5 only because of his cash game performances, heard not too long ago Chip Compton beat him for the money. These 5 players I would put before him.

1. Efren
2. Frost
3. Shane
4. Daulton
5. Alex

As little as I know about poolplayers, and I admit it's not much, I would put Efren at the bottom of that list IF it was a ranking and IF Daulton has been playing.

Late Edit; Obviously, RBL don't know sh*t...I could give Shannon 9/7 for the $$$$$..What a f**king dildohead..:D

Dear "calculator" Breath,

If you'd take your shoes off you could figure out that Lenny said he'd put these five guys ahead of Sylver, he didn't say that Sylver wasn't #10 in the top 10:sorry.

P.S. Old buddy, I'd rank you in the Top 10 for drunken responses to incredible imbeciles from Florida, even though I haven't read them yet:p.

P.Ps. When you turn 80 would you like to play some two-ball Golf? Whatever the f@@k that is?:confused:

P.P.Ps. You probably could've given Shannon 9-7.

P.P.P.Ps. I'm closing in on a Four-Fer:D.

Yes they are not in any order on my list, just 5 guys I feel are above Sylver. I like Frost for the money over them all.

JJ beats Sylver by a hair too, Thats whats he told me. Sylver is young and forsure will be top 5 in a few years. Seen him play Parika a couple years ago-it was close.

How old were Parica & Sylver when they played? Parica is a senior citizen now isn't he?

was 3 or 4 years ago. i think 3 but im not sure. no more than 4. pretty sure it was 3 at hollywood billiards. they were playing for $300/game as i recall. I was playing on a table next to them and one of the guys who had action on the game asked me to watch it-so i did, until I left. No business on the square, they both played pretty good, they were moving more than firing at their hole. Good 1 hole IMO. It was close.

I think Parica has been a senior for 15-20 years LOL. God Bless him , gosh I hope I age like he has.

Parica is 63 (b. April 18, 1949). He reportedly was born in LaPuente, Calif., but was reared in the Philippines.
