View Full Version : ? for the Veterans of past US Opens

I had the priviledge of watching Steve Mizerak play a young German player in the US Open straight pool finals at the Pick Congress Hotel in Chicago...I think it was 1987 or maybe 88..not sure of the year.
I was wondering if anyone knows who that young German player was. I was (and still am) really just a casually bar pool player at that time and I knew none of the pros names. I was just lucky enough to have a friend who gave me a ticket to that match. I will never forget seeing it but can't remember the other player's name or the exact year.
Anyone remember it?

No specific knowledge, but my guess would be Oliver Ortmann.
