It is time to vote in this year’s elections for the One Pocket Hall of Fame! Our HOF dinner will be held for the first time at Buffalo's Billiards in New Orleans Wednesday night, May 20. To learn more about all of our inductees over the prior years, please visit the One Pocket Hall of Fame here on this web site.

Please note you can vote for more than one candidate, and one of the nice things about this new software is you can go back and edit your vote if you make a mistake or have second thoughts.

Jaffar ‘Patch-Eye’ Basheer (deceased) - A lifelong road player with outstanding all-around talent, with a cerebral gentlemanly approach to the game. Fellow HOF'er Cliff Joyner is one of many players who learned from and were inspired by 'Patch-Eye'.

Francisco Bustamante - Like fine wine, Bustamante's One Pocket game seems to improve with age. In the last few years he has won back-to-back Derby City titles, to go along with many other tournament wins over his long and illustrious career. He also has been featured in numerous live-stream action matches.

Marcel Camp (deceased)– One of the early great One Pocket players credited with influencing the rise in One Pocket in the years before Johnston City. Camp was a solid all around player and action legend.

Corey Deuel - Perhaps the most creative pool player of his generation, which certainly has been a hallmark of his top notch One Pocket game. His major titles include a Derby City One Pocket championship.

Johnny Ervolino (deceased) - A two-time Stardust Open One Pocket champion, and for years one of the top players in the legendary action rooms of NYC.

Johnny 'Irish' Lineen (deceased) - A top early player considered to be one of the best all around players during the years leading up to the beginning of the Johnston City events.

Rafael Martinez - Considered one of the most creative One Pocket players of his generation, Rafael has finished at or near the top in many tournaments.

Alex Pagulayan - Alex has been a perrenial One Pocket champion for the last 20 years, with multiple major titles, including back-to-back Derby City championships. He also has been involved in many big action matches over the years, often live-streamed, which always boosts interest in One Pocket.

Joey Spaeth (deceased) – A Johnston City regular and solid all-around competitor for many years. Joey came up in Cincinnati in the same generation as ‘Clem’ Metz, and took to One Pocket early in his career.

Johnny Ervolino is way over due. Was a hair under Jersey Red. Bugs tried to give him a ball in Chicago, in his joint, and it was a stone cold robbery.
