I just got thru reading the article in BD about James Evans the great straight pool player. In the article it says he blew almost everyone away and the only person who ever gave him a hard time was Greenleaf and the two of them used to go round and round.
Anyway, Boston Shorty made a comment : "Mosconi not only wouldve never played Evans for money,in my opinion he couldnt have beaten him for money either."
I know you been around more than almost anyone here and have seen all the greats play, did you ever see Evans play and what do you think about Boston Shortys comment ?
I mean the guy said Willie couldnt beat him, that kind of floored me.
