Question regarding Jack Cooney
...
I read a great deal about various one pocket players in different magazines and forums, but rarely do I ever see anything regarding Jack Cooney.I constantly hear stories at different tournaments I attend about some of his exploits (such as the marathon match at the DCC a few years ago), but you never really know what is fact and what is merely folklore in the making.
I thougt this might be the perfect place to get to the bottom of things!
Does anyone out there know where Mr. Cooney would rate among some of the all time greats?Are even HALF of the road stories you hear about him true?I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm certain he has to be a fantastic player.Why else would there be so many stories circulating about him?I just wanted to know exactly where he fits into things I guess.

Jack Cooney
I have actually seen Jack Cooney play a lot of one pocket.He used to hang around Hard Times in Bellflower.
...
They played for 5 days and Cooney ended up gettin the money.Last I heard, he retired from pool because of back problems.He also used to play 9-ball and a lot of golf at Hard Times on the snooker table by the front door "Big Bertha".So yes, he is real and he did play very well.
...
I have a finished movie script that I wrote that is a fictionalized account of the road adventures of Barbara and Jack Cooney.It's called "Roxanne's Game."The main characters are called Roxanne and Mick, but they are in reality, Jack and Barbara.Barbara doesn't want me to use real names.She doesn't want the publicity.

I was in Miami with a buddy of mine in the spring of 1966 or 67 and ran into Jack at the Congress (?) Bowling & Billiards in North Miami.I didn't know him at the time but he was playing 9 ball with several different guys (one at a time) from Jacksonville who looked to be pretty decent players.Jack was well dressed but he had a towel hanging out of his back pocket and he always carried his cue (he was using a house cue at the time) on his shoulder like a soldier with a rifle.He was playing with a flat hand bridge and I was wondering how long it would take the others to knock hiim out.He rarely ran over two or three balls at a time and didn't seem to have a particularly good stroke.
At any rate, my buddy, Tom, goes to the bathroom at about the same time Jack did and when he comes back he tells me he put up all our money and we had half of Jack's action (he was low on cash at the time) in a set against one of the three guys.I was stunned.I asked him why he would bet all our money on a guy who could barely make a ball.Tom, who did have good instincts, told me that he was sure he had seen Jack somewhere before and that he just knew that he was a better player than he was showing.I said I hope you are right or else we will be walking back to North Carolina.Now, with a critical interest in the outcome, I watched the game much more intently.I began to notice that while Jack never ran over two or three balls that he almost never missed on either the eight or the nine and he usually didn't leave much of a shot when there were only a few balls on the table.
At any rate, after several sessions lasting all night, Jack finally ended up a couple of thousand ahead.The three guys were broke and just couldn't believe that they had been beaten by this guy.They all had nice cues and played pretty well.And this other guy was playing flat handed with a house cue and carrying it around like a rifle.After they had left, Jack and Tom and I went to get something to eat and split up our winnings.Boy, was I ever relieved.I think we ended up with over two grand which was decent back in those days.Jack introduced himself and told us he was from San Francisco.He was driving a beige colored Pontiac LeMans at the time.
The next night we went back to Congress Billiards and saw Jack practicing with his own cue.After watching for only a few minutes I realized that this guy was a real player.And the night before I was worried about him being able to beat several average players.At about that time the guys that he had beaten the night before walked in.
...
Anyway, that was almost 40 years ago aned I'm sure Jack doesn't remember but it was certainly nice meeting him under those particular circumstances.He was very nice about everything and even offered us a little more than half his winnings saying that he really appreciated us backing him.We of course declined and cheerfully paid his breakfast tab.
I hope things are currently going well for him.He was a really nice friendly guy and a hell of a player to boot.
...
At that same time, Jack just missed trapping me.He was the only guy to fool me with his lemon stroke.I got saved when a shit-heel sweator knocked Jack to me when Jack left the room for a moment.He really had me fooled.
...
Back in 1984 Bananas Rodriguez sneaked in Jack to play a local shortstop who had beat Jimmy Flyboy Spears and Rodney Stevens here in San Antonio getting 10-6 and 9-7.
...
Jack gave him 10 -6 all the way and also his fouls did not count.The strong shortstop was called the Bear and if you showed any weakness he would bite you.Jack did not have no weakness and took down a big score.Bananas did not like road players coming in and knocking off the locals unless HE WAS IN.Jack beat him playing 5k a game and his wife sit on the rail and never looked up from a book she was reading.I talked to him ever day as he came in real early to practice.He always used his on set of pool at that time.What a nice and easy going person he seemed to always be.
