I do this about 3 times a year so if you think you have seen this before...you have. Going to be in Vegas (on business) Feb 3-7th. Have time to play during the days until 6PM. Will be at Griff's but will have a car and would be willing to play elsewhere. Please post or PM me if any OnePocket.org members want to play/meet/gamble/funzies/whatever/and-anything-in-between.

To date I have had zero luck finding anyone. Generally I get recommendations to go find this guy there or that guy here. People mean well but alas surely some member wants to play. In the past 5 years I have probably hosted 20 members who have come through town. I have never turned down a request. Now in a very unCanadian way I insist some Vegas member kick my ___. This is important before The Don decides to put up a Northern Border wall and I'm barred for life. Hell I haven't played any One Pocket since Memphis.

To review:
1. I suck
2. Canadians don't and thus can't play One Pocket
3. Some people actually think I'm ok (short list)

Nick, I don't know if you know Bob Herchick (sp). He's a very strong 1P player who lives in Vegas, and did very well at the recent Seniors' event in Houston. I'm sure he'd love to play. I don't have any contact info on him, but I'm sure you could get ahold of him through Griff's. He undoubtedly plays out of that room. He deals craps at one of the casinos, so I don't know his schedule. He's a real nice guy, and a lethal player.

Mary Kenniston may have his contact info. Not sure.

I’ve got a VIP trip to Vegas tomorrow. I played Bob Herchick before I knew who he was. Not that it would matter, I play almost everyone. I’ll woof at Gary Lutman again but he won’t play me 1P. I’ll probably give Cue Club a go on Thursday.

Not sure who’ll be in town with Derby starting. To the guys who want to beat on me at Derby, I’m still planning on being at Derby Saturday afternoon.

Pilot,
Tell Bob I can't play and send him my cell number. Good luck.

Hey Nick,
I'm pretty sure Mitch Ellerman plays out of Griffs quite a bit. Gary could probably steer him toward ya....

Doc, Bob Herchick is running hot at the US Open at Griff's right now! He's in the semifinals of the winner's bracket, he just beat Tony Chohan in his previous match, and he skunked John Morra in his first match! I believe he plays Justin Hall in the semis of the winners! I imagine he plays real good 1-pocket!

Sure thing, BB. I just commented in another thread that Bob has the complete game, but is comparatively unknown because of his workaday job in Vegas. Age will start to get him now, but as was Mike Surber, Bob is always a threat to win.
