BTW, the phone number to D & D Family Billiards is 610-269-6080. Tell Mickey I sent ya!
Barbara~~~taking bets, Maidhof wins... /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
I think your propositioning a bet! Remember your heavy loss last year? LOL Your odds are much better this year. Good luck to you, you picked up a pointer or two from last year. Your main dude is in the running this year. /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif Lets hope ole Bob holds out. Will Hoppy make a charge? Who knows , only the shadow knows. /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif I need a recap starting tommorrow. I hope Steve does well, I'd like to see him establish himself as a real contender in the group. I think he is getting their attention!

09-28-2003, 03:34 PM
I have been reading this thread with some interest. I have known Bobby since he was a kid coming into the pool room where I worked and later in my room. He always played good straight pool, even when no one else played the game around here. Funny to read his name here, I just got a call from a guy I had not seen in 20 years, who just opened a room and Bobby's name came up. I believe Bobby has been helping him out a little with the room giving advice.
09-28-2003, 03:58 PM
Bobby?? BOBBY??? I'm sorry, I can't stop laughing at the notion of calling Maidhof "Bobby"!!! Which I will, of course, next time I see him!! /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
Yeah, and I bet his 14.1 skills escalated when Jimmy Caras decided to roost in his room when Jimmy lived in Drexel Hill.
When I first met "Bobby", it was during a local exhibition match with Jimmy Fusco at Mike Fusco's (no relation) place. Bob drilled Jimmy F. with an 83-and-out run. But it wasn't until after a bunch of low-run innings. I was sitting with Jimmy Caras and Jimmy was critisizing Bob's stroke. He was in "9-ball" stroke and it showed. After an hour of exchanging the low-run innings, Jimmy turned to me and said, "If this was Mosconi and me, we'd have been outta here 45 minutes ago!". Then Bob got into stroke and nailed Jimmy F. with that 83-and-out run.
I've always been impressed with "Bobby's" straight pool skills since then. I won't bet against him.
Barbara~~~heh heh heh ... "Bobby"... heh heh heh... Hey houseman! /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Final results of this great tournament.
Steve Lipsky 200 Bob Maidhof 64
Thanks to all involved and those that covered this post.
Thanks for your coverage. Congrats to Steve, won the tourney and high run to boot. I think he caught a gear!
09-28-2003, 05:44 PM
A 140-ball run by that Lipsky Guy??? Ye-ouch! That has to be a tournament record!!! Okay. so I'll take it out on his wife next weekend if we match up. grrrrrrrr....
And tell "Seagrill Bobby", I'm gonna beat him like a red-headed bastard stepchild next time I see him!! Okay, maybe not, only because I didn't make a bet on him today. But it was close...
Barbara~~~and who's up for next week's Jack Colavita's 14.1 tourny???
09-28-2003, 07:43 PM
I'm planning to be there next week. Maybe Sat., Sunday for sure. I would have bet on Steve but I got the news that he was in the finals a little late. The match might have been nearly over but it would have still been a good bet. I would have given you 100 points.

Hey everybody... I just want to say thanks for all your support and kind words. They both really mean a lot to me.
It's such a great tournament that D&D puts on, and, really, my head is still spinning. I was very happy with how I played. The worst part was that I had to play my road partner, friend, and mentor Danny Barouty TWICE. I started our first game with an 83, and ended the second game with a 72-and-out when he had 142. Danny is the best, though... he was so complimentary about everything. And that's hard, when a weaker player beats you twice in the same tournament. But that's just how he is.
The finals were a lot of fun. There's just something great about playing on the center table with a lot of spectators, and really feeling like you're in stroke. (When you're not in stroke, it's not as much fun /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif.) Anyway, Bob broke, left me tough, and I missed. He ran 43, we traded intentional fouls, and then he played a tough in-the-rack combination on the 10 ball, which he missed.
So I'm down 43 to -2, but I've got a wide open rack. I just started feeling my way around the table, into a stroke, and before I knew it I had a pretty good run going. When I hit about 110, Bob said to me between racks, "Ya know, I'm starting to think I shouldn't have gone for that 10 ball." It was pretty funny. Anyway, I broke the balls when I had 140 (the run was actually 142, because of my minus 2 at the start of the game), and only two balls came out of the rack, without any real chance to get into the rest of them. I tried some ridiculously-thin cut, and missed. That was that. I would've liked to have run a 202-and-out, or at least beat my 177, but I think it's safe to say I'm pretty happy with how everything worked out. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
To Pete Sinkler and Mickey Scott - you guys are simply the best. What a wonderful tournament you always put on. Great tables, great room. Not enough can be said. And thank you so much for the tapes of those two matches; I will obviously treasure them for years to come.
Again, thanks for the nice words everyone. It really means a lot to me!
09-29-2003, 09:11 AM
If it had been 200 miles from Hamiltucky rather than 600 I would have been there to watch. I've never seen a top-flight 14.1 tourney live.
Mr. Lipsky, you da' man.....
09-29-2003, 09:11 AM
Oh, I forgot to say that Maidhof is such a nice guy and a great competitor. Barbara, you can do a lot worse than idolizing the play of this guy. He plays beautifully, and had nothing but nice things to say after the match. He also caught two terrible rolls in the finals, which is pretty tough to overcome in straight pool.

You gotta love "Seagrill Bobby's" sense of humor!

You got that right! He is a class act!
"When I hit about 110, Bob said to me between racks, "Ya know, I'm starting to think I shouldn't have gone for that 10 ball." "
LOL - Now that is class /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif Sounds like you had a good time doc, congratulations on the win /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
14.1 is pool art at it's finest.
09-29-2003, 10:46 AM
As usual, I'm late on this...
Nice win, Steve-O!! Thanks to the Internet, looks like you'll have an even harder time getting a 14.1 match-up! Let me know when you are feeling like giving some pointers, I'll bring my notebook.

<blockquote><font class="small">Quote Steve Lipsky:</font><hr> And thank you so much for the tapes of those two matches; I will obviously treasure them for years to come.<hr /></blockquote>Hi Steve,
I bid $35 for those tapes... /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif
To echo what's already been said, great job! If Barbara had offered a wager, I'd have bet on you and won the nuts again! /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
09-29-2003, 12:31 PM
Congratulations Steve! I wish I had seen the matches with Danny - it's always fun watching two masters practicing their craft.
So what's the secret to your game? Valium? Wrap? No wrap? Schon? Wood joint? Predator shaft? Cuetec? Limb Saver? Levitra? Sharking? Meucci? Gummi Bears?? WHAT IS IT???
Actually, I know you, and in your case, it's: talent, dedication, practice, hard work, dignity and class. Congrats again!
-- Mark <-- thinks it might be the gummi bears
09-29-2003, 06:18 PM
Congratulations Steve,not only are you the hottest thing on two legs but you can play a damn good game of pool as well.
If you were single we'd be tucked up in bed with a nice cup of tea,watching Accustats. /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Yes there is nothing quite like it IMO. I think you caught a gear, 142 is a great run! I'd say you were prepared. Getting a couple of tapes on top of all that is a real bonus. Not to worry on that 202, you'll cover that next year. Really great playing Steve, your hard work and attitude for this game is shining through.

Nah just kidding. Way to go Steve! Congrats!
Wendy~~~lets not go where there's a hurricane, ok?
09-29-2003, 08:49 PM
Hey Steve....congrats. now will you play in mike's rochester event. i won't go unless you do...lol...keep em stroking young man............................mike
Well done Steve, excellent run and WHAT a time to do it!
I bet that made you feel good.
Its always tough to play a friend, but when you step up to that table, its dog eat dog baby. Do unto him before he does it to you. Thats the game. Just because he is 'better'[ I dont understand this ] doesnt mean he is going to or deserves to win.
Maybe you are 'better' than you think you are.
Keep it up.
09-30-2003, 04:19 AM
Danny called me yesterday and filled me in-WAY TO GO!
09-30-2003, 06:36 AM
Also Hey to anyone that remembers me:). It's killing me reading all the great posts from D&D. Sounds like another great 14.1 tourny Mick......congrats to Steve, I know how tough Bob M is...He put a 126 on me a couple of years ago at that tourny!. I dropped out of the pool world when we moved down to Fl. but I've had enough!. The house is for sale , and we're moving back up North, how much sun and nice weather can one pool player endure! I broke out all my 14.1/1-hole vids and I'm dusting off the cue to get ready for next years event at D-town....Hey someones gotta get pounded right?:). Later...G
09-30-2003, 08:45 AM
Thanks guys, again, for all the congrats! It's like I get to win the tournament again when I read everyone's posts! Seriously, this has been a very special thread to me.
Now... as Barbara asked earlier, who's going to Jack's NJ State Championship this weekend?
09-30-2003, 10:52 AM
Welcome back, I heard you guys were coming back to penna.
What a great tournament, even Cornbread Cliff and Palmer John got in the tournament.
I told everyone Cliff was walking on 3rd avenue in Coatesville and looked down and found his heart and entered the tournament, im proud of both him and John.
Practice up cause next year will be here before ya know it.
09-30-2003, 04:59 PM
It's all happening pretty fast here!. We just signed an agreement on a house this afternoon in Douglassville. It's pretty much in the same area we used to live in. I can't wait to get back on the tables. Settlement is in a month, and we should be back for the holidays. Talk to you guys soon,.....Miss & Ger
P.S. Tell Pete we said Hi, and all the guys at teh room!:)
Steve, you're famous. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
10-01-2003, 11:07 AM
When it rains it pours, I guess. /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
As for being famous, it's not likely. When I play in the US Open and Scott Smith announces my name, I get about 6 claps, and they're all from the CCBers. Yet another reason to love the CCB, baby! /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
You have to start somewhere. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smirk.gif
Hey, I know that guy!!!!!!!!!!! /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
Really bang up job Steve.
Kato~~~has happily clapped for Steve Lipsky
