I have known him for thirty years, and played him lots of times. He is a nice guy, you will like him. Listen to what he tells you, I have seen him teach and he knows what he is doing. I guarantee you will enjoy it.

When you meet him he will talk your ears off and tell you anything you want to know. He is very interesting to listen to and he has many gambling stories. We talked at the US open for over an hour. He also has audio and vidio tapes in his car.

Jimmy is one of the coolest players out there. He loves to talk, and he LOVES the game. He is also exceptionally knowledgeable. He is friendly, fun, and a really nice guy.

Do you know exactly transpired to make Jimmy and Luis Viera fight? I know they got into a pretty heated fight, just never heard any details.

> The fistfight took place at the U.S. Open several years ago,and it was CARLOS Viera,not Luis. Something took place during the match,and the fight took place outside in the parking lot supposedly. There is a super funny but kind of risque story about Jimmy in The Green Felt Jungle. Tommy D.
