Great post Wally, I also did not know that Max is an artist.
Looks like when the Good Lord was passing out talent max got in line twice. /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

I'm jumping on the Max bandwagon.

/ccboard/images/graemlins/ooo.gifI'M VERY IMPRESSED. What is his schooling background?...JER

JER...Max graduated from James Madison University in VA. He is one of FEW two time ACUI Collegiate National Champions, and one of only two back-to-back winners (Nick Varner being the other). Don't know what Max's major was, but obviously he has an artistic flair! Not only a superb player, Max also is a good instructor, and a really nice person, with a lot of humility. He kinda reminds me of an American Efren! We could use more pro players like Max!

I've been a fan of his since I saw him play John Schmidt at 2003 DCC. Max is just so cool under pressure it's unbelievable. Or he doesn't show it anyway.

He dresses well too, and at the Dirty City Classic, that stands out /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

I saw the Michael Jordan face on display at Hollywood Biliards - fantastic. He used "pointillism" and it was backlit. The art is a lot more impressive in person.

He recently had a show in Hollywood - I think he's going to do well with his art.

Just wanted to correct you- Gary Asbell from FSU also won it twice back to back in 1988-89 as well as Jason Cruz from Puerto Rico in 2001-2002.

Dan Louie was another (and I was very thankful he graduated when he did).

Gary Asbell did not win back to back. He won it in 1986, and then in 1989.

Gary Asbell - Florida State University = 1986
Bill Beardsley - University of Michigan = 1987
Nick Kucharew - Mohawk College = 1988
Gary Asbell - Florida State University = 1989.

Harold, What a great job on getting that list.

Would you share your resource? I have a friend that might be listed.

Thanks

Your friend, hoping all is well in PR.

All ACUI Champions up to the year 2000 are listed in the BCA 2001 Official Rules &amp; Records Book.

If you don't have one available, PM me and I'll search for your friend.

Jason Cruz was also a back to back 3rd Place finisher in the BCA Junior Nationals. Placed 5th in Japan for the World Jr. Nationals, and is currently 3rd Ranked in Puerto Rico. Plus he placed 33rd in his first and most recent US Open.

Nice record for a 22 year-old.

Thanks Harold, I have my copy, I just didn't realize it included the ACUI records.

Thanks again for the quick reply

I agree, the art is much more impressive in person.

At the first Capital City Classic, in 2002, they brought some of Max's picture into the tournament room and hung them on the walls. Most were very large works and they were, indeed, very impressive.
