just spoke with him a few weeks ago, what a shame! A natural talent and personality, with his hair on fire on occasion!

Yes, he was great to watch and a great person to know, too --- One of the kindest people I'd ever met. His game was picture perfect in so many ways. Perfect fundamentals. Smart safety player. Beautiful cue ball movement around the table. He was a true master of the game.

I saw Ginky at a number of tournaments and he was always a class act.

Yes, he was also very nice. Sorry but I was sort of at a loss for words, I am still shocked.

In his day? He was only 39.

I met him 2-12-02 when he came to Tampa for the Patriot Cup that Charlie Williams put on. Seemed very friendly and outgoing. Signed a cue ball for me.
