Last night I walked into my local PH (Cue Bridge Billiards on Quakerbridge Road - thus the "Q" Bridge - in Mercerville, NJ) and spot Tony Robles with a fellow from NYC, that I've met before. This was only a brief encounter, but I gotta tell you that I was duly impressed with Tony. I'm not talking about his ability at the table - which was masterful - but his demeanor. So outgoing and friendly to any that approached him. And taking his time playing with some young kids - just great. What a great ambassador for our sport. He is the antithesis of Earl. Here's hoping that Tony's BCA win was just the beginning of a long string of wins. I can't think of anyone who deserves it more. Just my $.02

Adios,

Pizza Bob

I am not at all surprised by your impression of Tony even though I have not had the pleasure of meeting him.
On the other hand the couple of times that I met Earl, he was the consummate gentleman.
