Subject: MORPHY (street gambling) CHALLENGE
I am giving serious consideration to offering you an "all around "
challenge .

Something like :

Pool

Darts

Bowling

Gin


I am wondering if you could bet enough to make me show up!!

I am thinking at least $500 per event and some sort of bonus if one player
wins all but one event . Most likely one of us will have one extremely
weak event , so putting a bonus on holding their opponent to a single
victory should demand some sort of bonus

Some sort of 3 game matches , maybe 3 -3 game matches in darts and
Bowling, gin ..maybe 3 games of Hollywood?..pool.. 8ball ..nine ball and
straight pool or banks (maybe one pocket)

I could also be conned into playing golf

I will allow you plenty of time to 'read up' on these games , thus giving
you time to become an "expert"


Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities.

At leats 500.00 to show up?

Show up where?

Would you travel, like 2000 miles for this game?

How about make it 250.00 and meet halfway?

You're smart enough to leave me out of this. I give you kudo's. I
bowled a few pro events, but won more money in the poker games played
the night before. Rod Pardey was on the tour and Rod Pardey states he
thinks I was a better bowler than he was. I gave up bowling by 20.
Still can average at least 190, 180 no problem. Great at Gin, drinking
and playing. Plus, have played darts.

Best match I ever had was from some rich moron who thought I talked
too much. He was a golfer and I spotted him on everything and he lost
on everything. Finally, he wanted to play golf. I want a spot. Told
him I never played golf. He was like a 5 handicap. Moron gave me 18
strokes on the local minature golf course and 36 at the local golf
course for 10K each. I averaged about 55 at the minature and could
shoot between 90-100 at most regular golf courses. Made sure we played
at the minature course first, so his mental abilities would be sky
high:). Beat me by a stroke at minature and shot about 80 at the
regular. I barely broke 100.

I used to back some golfers for fun back in the 90s by the bike. Brian
Nadell was the main target then. One day, Brian was way ahead and a
cince to win when we came to a par three over water hole. I tell Brian
in front of the crowd (watching and sweating), that if he wants to
make an ez $1,000, just hit it in the water. Mind over matter. Brian
goes PLUNK right into the water. I give him the thousand in cash right
away. It basically cost him the match and at least 20x more, since
he'd have won the match for about 10k instead of losing it. Now Brian
locks it up, by plunking it into the water on the next one. I give him
a needle that he needs to give me my $1,000 back since there was only
one plunk allowed:).

Subject: Re: MORPHY (street gambling) CHALLENGE
I think the year was 1969, but it's liable to be 1976. They had a guy
called Alan Steinburg (poker player) and a friend of CK's aka Richard
Swartch (Crazy Kid). Gardena had closed for a few hours and Steinburg
was shooting his mouth off about how great a bowler he was (beat some
local yokel) recently. At that time, I still was in great bowling
shape and did carry a couple of bowling balls with me in the trunk of
my car. Everyone is drinking and the whole group is pro Alan on
bowling. So off I go, telling him they couldn't raise enough money to
have me bowl Alan, as I could destroy him and wouldn't do so unless
the money was right.

Soon, everyone is emptying out and a few thousand are raised. I make
one rule (didn't really want it, but didn't want to look like Alan was
being hustled). I insisted on 'house balls', as anyone having their
own ball in the car would immediately be considered as being a bowler.
Plus, with house balls, accuracy is far more important and no one has
an edge in case the house has a bias. I get a FISH, I don't let them
escape. Soon we laeve the bar between the Monteray/Rainbow and head
for a 24/7 bowling alley on Crenshaw Ave., a few miles away.

These guys couldn't get enough money bet. A person with his own
drilled ball will average at least 20-30 pins a game better with their
own ball. Now, as we go looking for balls, I come across one with a
finger tip drilling job at max weight of 16 lbs. This is an edge in
itself. It's a three game match with money on each game and total
score. Needless to say, I'm pretty sure I shot over 200 every game and
it was an absolute slaughter and i won like Secretariat won.

Back in those days, I even bowled some pot games (games where everyone
puts money up and highest score wins the money, some times a second
place). The big action back in 1968 was at Encino bowl, where all the
pro's on the tour bowled. Glenn Allison, Sheldon Hippo, Bobby Collatas
and numerous others. Most didn't know me and I was only 21 at the
time.

I used to play the gutter whenever I could and started off trying that
shot. Came with a ton of money and sidebet everyone. Started off with
the gutter shot shooting games of 180 having all the pro's think a
sucker had arrived. I was stubborn, but knew I had to switch to an
inside game. After getting stuck a couple of thousand and not winning
a game, more and more bowlers wanted to side bet for as much as they
could.

I hated shooting the inside line, but hated losing money more. So I
changed balls and moved to an inside shot. Next dozen games I don't
think I shot less than 240 plus. Busted everyone. At least half a
dozen were regulars on the pro tour, Numerous backers came down after
they heard a sucker was down at the alley giving his money away. The
sucker:) walked away with about every dollar in the alley.

I held world records for years back in those days. Won every event at
Robin Hood Lanes in Edmonds, Washington back 1966 bowling against 4 lb
pins. Shot a 10 game block of 2633, or a 263 average. Won the 4 game
singles that night, along with the three game 5 man team event and
three man team event. I also ended up winning the doubles event, the
mixed doubles event and all around. Right out of high school and I won
almost 40K bowling.

One of my last major matches in the Seattle-Tacoma area was against
Earl Anthony (perhaps the best bowler ever). He was being backed, as
earl was a little tight with his money back then. We were shooting an
eight game home and home match. They knew I had a big edge at my home
alley, Lewis and Clark lanes, a 32 lane house where I was the only
person who had a 200 plus average out of the thousands who bowled
there. Plus, it was over 220.

Earl's home house was Pacific Lanes in Tacoma. Earl came out shooting
back to back 250 plus games, with me shooting back to back 200 plus.
He had me stuck 100 pins after two games. This was a lefty house and
earl was a big favorite here. However, I found a great line and now
shot back to back 250 plus, while Earl shot 200 plus. The match as we
headed north was less than 10 pins difference (don't remember who had
it, but everyone knew what was going to happen). We got to Lewis and
Clark and I shot about 800 my first three games with Earl shooting
about 650. No fourth game was bowled. I had won easily.


A bowling TV show was started, with qualifying being done at Lewis and
Clark and the show was set to be bowled at Belle Lanes in Bellevue. It
was a ten game qualifying block, with the two highest qualifying for
the show. After 9 games I was over 300 pins ahead of the second place
guy. Didn't need to even bowl the last game, but did as it was 10
games.

The show was supposed to be a winner defends his title. I destroyed my
oppenents so badly that the matches were usually over after the first
game. Belle was a sister house of Lewis and Clark lanes, plus had a
great gutter shot (line of throwing the ball). I was retired quickly
as an undefeated champion as the rating weren't good with there being
no chance for the others. They had another shootout for the next
spots. My brother took over where I left off. He was a lefty.

These days when I'm out and about, people recognize me for bowling
more than anything else, most wondering what happened to me. Everyone
thought I'd be a star on the Pro Bowling Tour. Back in those days, I'd
roll in 20-30 man fields in pot games, winning at about a 50% clip. I
was very fortunate though. All the alleys that the pot games were
bowled in had a great gutter shot. Giving me this shot, was like
giving me a 20 pin edge.

I won so many handicap tourneys back when bowling was in it's prime,
that they changed the handicap rule in the Northwest. Prior to
changing the rule, the handicap was based on the difference between
your sanctioned bowling average and 200. 200 was the mark, with a
bowler having a 160 average, would get 75% of the difference between a
200 average bowler. Meaning he'd get 30 pins a game from me or others
having 200 averages or higher. I was young and was nicknamed the
twirler, since I threw as big a hook (curve ball) as possible back in
thos days. It would go right down the edge of the alley then hook into
the pocket. In one tournament, I rolled 13 straight strikes from start
to finish:). Foulded on 8 trikes in a row and made a strike doing it,
then struck again for a spare and struck out. Was kidded about how
many strikes it took to roll 300. The next game, I rolled 300.

Back to the handicap. I put scores on the board that even a handicap
bowler couldn't beat unless they scored 70-80 pins per game higher
than their averages. This made turnouts for these events a lot smaller
and all those tourneys had guarantee's. Thus, the average rule was
changed back about 1965-66. I, at 19 was classified 220, while the
three local Pro's, PBA members, Johnny Gunther, Darylee Cox and Earl
Anthony were classified 210. Bowling was huge back in the 1960s and
1970s. In a way, this was bowlings compensation to Wilt Chamberlain
and the three second rule. It also ended my total domination of
handicap tourneys in the Northwest.

On January 6, 1964, I bowled the first 300 at Westpark Lanes in
Bremerton, Washington in a local pro tourney. I won a new Bonneville
Pontiac. I was 17.

Make it pool, poker and bass guitar and you have my interest. I haven't
played darts in 10 years, haven't bowled since 7th grade, and I'm not sure
if I've ever played gin.

If the situation were reversed you would "dog" me for months , if i were
to make such a refusal .. i will take the high raod here and let you off
the hook .

I had assumed that you actually had some experience in the real world !!

Real world of what? I've been a musician since about age 3, and I have
over 15 years experience in the IT industry. I don't gamble, I approach
poker as more of a chess game than anything. I know you're gonna have a
field day on this one, but when I first saw the movie Rounders I didn't
understand holdem.
