One pocket has a large learning curve for most of us. Others they see the table and instinctively know the game. T-Rex was the latter. I am one of the ones that is still learning. I have been lucky in my pool efforts to have had mentor for the past thirty years. I have given John Henderson that dubious honor since I saw him play at California (Safeway)Billiards. I knew him from around. John carried himself as a gentleman first, a pool player next. I wanted that and I wanted his knowledge. He was a barker and so am I and we started off at 10-7. Sometimes I would go for a complete flyer because having four or five and if I made the flyer..........Well of course ten to John was a spot shot. He would make one, two, three and on his way. That big broad stoke, banking, combos, POW, POW. Now its 8-5 and we both need two. My end game wasn’t too bad but it got a whole lot better. It’s not about making one safety, its about making ten. Because that is how many times you have to play safe to get a shot. Unless you gave one up in those ten. Anyway John taught me more than playing, he taught me how to respect the game and those playing it. I don’t think they will ever call me gentleman Bill, but I have a mentor.
