Bank Pool Hall of Famer, class of 2006, Freddy the Beard Bentivegna has plenty of knowledge, stories & instructional materials to share.   So surf around and get in on the action.

Field of Pool Dreams. Clik for the audio  & slide show of the nostalgic poem, Dennis Bondarenok’s “You’ll be up here yet,” at the OnePocket Hall of Fame Dinner recited by Freddy the Beard.

New Feature: 16 bank pool lessons from my Inside Pool mag columns.  Available in the Free Pool Lessons page, under Bank Pool.

Hard-Cover “Encyclopedia’s” now available!

Hard-cover, case-laminated editions of The “Encyclopedia” of Pool Hustlers are now available to order. Book trim size = extra large 8.5 x 11, with over 300 photos of the great pool hustlers of the second half of the 20th Century in a 300-plus page format.

My pre-publication offer is officially over. I will still autograph and number the copies up until number #200, but henceforth the retail price is now $59.95 plus $5 s&h. I will include as a bonus, a copy of Diana Hoppe’s Road Scholars DVD (retail $20 EBay), and also a copy of either the 2011 BCA Hall of Fame Dinner DVD, or the 2011, 2012, or 2013 OnePocket Hall of Fame Dinner DVD.

“The Road Scholars” is a good companion DVD to the book, as it contains candid interviews with 11 of the hustlers featured in the tome.


Price: $59.95 (+$5.00 shipping)

(cheaper soft-cover choices are available on the “books” page of this site.)
