has done it again with The Gos Pool of Bank Pool a book written from his perspective of players he has
encountered over the years on the road.

What Great Bankers Say about this book:

Leonard ?Bug? Rucker - ? My fellow Hall of famer, and old road-warrior ?The Beard? has let it all out in this one.

Vernon Eliot - ?The Beard? has released secrets that a .357 Magnum couldn?t have gotten out of me. More Hustler photos, Over 100 Pagers of new banks and more tales of the road.


Foreword:

These are my observations of players encountered during my career. My apologies to the old-timers whom I didn't see play and had to leave out. The opinions come from what I've actually seen and experienced.

I hope no one will be offended by what I say. It's all in fun and the truth is I deeply love the game and all of the pool players, regardless of lifestyle or character. The sinners and the rogues I love best of all. I have the greatest respect for pool ability, knowing the great commitment it takes to play high-speed pool.

BOB HENNING WAS A COMBAT INFANTRYMAN IN VIETNAM WHEN RED BECAME FAMOUS. TODAY, BOB LIVES IN MICHIGAN WITH HIS WIFE AND DOGS. HE PLAYS TOURNAMENT POOL AND HARDLY EVER GAMBLES.
Buddy Hall
BCA HALL OFFAMER

"This book covers the days of hustlers and con men with a sense of humor they deserve. It tells how Titanic Thompson, Daddy Warbucks, Detroit Whitey and all of their ilk managed a living out of the magic of their imaginations."
Nick Varner
BCA HALL OF FAMER

"A vastly entertaining and engaging book about the colorful life of a professional pool player and occasional gambler. Filled with great stories from one of the sport's premiere storytellers/players and one of it's best writers. Don't pass this one up!"
Tom Shaw
POOL & BILLIARD MAGAZINE

Introduction:

We rarely see life-changing moments when they occur. It is only later that we can look back upon them and know that this or that is what caused our lives to take the turns toward ill or good. When Danny Diliberto set out from Buffalo on his first road trip all those years ago, he had no way of knowing that his life had been permanently altered. But that first trip to the Hustler's Jamboree would become the sextant for the remainder of his life.

This collection of road stories from the vibrant memory of Mr. Diliberto are a great glimpse into the lifestyle of those who choose to be modern-day Ronins; lone-wolf warriors with no master save themselves. There are highs beyond belief and lows that no one should suffer. From facing prison because of a roommate who pilfered motel towels to winning hundreds of thousands of dollars on a single gamble, this is a life story that is anything but boring.

Diliberto excelled in four sports, all of which begin with the letter 'B.' He has been a baseball player, a bowler, a boxer and a billiard player. Boxing was his first love, but one that did not return his favors. An excellent puncher, his own hands could not stand the power of his blows.

It was billiards that gave him greatest fame and the life described herein. Any devotee of the game will find this collection a fascinating look into the immediate past of the game. From Las Vegas to Hollywood to the smallest towns on the most distant highways, this is the life of the roadman. Agambler's tale told in his own words. Enjoy.
