I have set 20 world records in pool & billiards. Most are in the
artistic world, some in pool. One occurred 47 years ago, the most
balls on the break when 8 fell, the rest were in the early 1990's and
14 years ago. A lot of newbie's were not playing the game 14 years
ago and you must under stand I do not have the time to reprove my
records to every newcomer who stumbles across them and to every
freshman class that arrives every year. It would become a full time
Those on the net who now demand I do can usually be traced to 3 people,
Davis Sapolis, his wife Debra Li, her pal in crime Eric T Hu, or their
pals or their dozens of false names they use on the net to confuse you
with and for them to carry out their attacks of hate, slander and libel
hiding under their rocks of safety. I exposed them for what they were
doing to me and their attacks have increased.
They do not want my proof. They do not want my answers. I have
answered them and gave them the answers dozens of times over the last
three years and they ignore them and are back on the net posting the
same accusation the next day. These are not honest questions of some
one who is curious. These are internet terrorists, convicted criminals
for harassment who are running a campaign of slander, libels and lies
against me for the sole purpose to destroy me, my reputation, my
records and my ability to support my family by being a professional
touring pool pro. Pardon me if I fight back to save my profession and
not starve and become a homeless person which is what they seek to do
For three years now every time one of these attacks come up I publish
my office phone number which is 770-381-6609 and say any one who really
wants to know the truth and receive evidence just call me. So far, I
have not received a single phone call. The only ones who seem to care
about this now are this small group trying to run me down with their
lies. Every one else could care less. They either accept me for what
I am or do not.
My position on these is now simple. I did them. I am an honest man.
I am a former alter boy and 4 palm Eagle Scout. I was raised to always
tell the truth. I am proud of what I accomplished. But today I really
do not care if you Believe them or not. This no longer matters to me
any more. I have the memories of those fantastic shots forever in my
mind and nothing any one can do can take them away from me.
I now offer you two choices. Choice A. You can believe it. Choice B.
Believe it not.
I really do not give a damn, which of the two you choose. So, Believe
it, or Not. If this was not all true then explain why Ripley's
believe it or not put 5 of my world records in their column 5 times, 5
years in a row and had me perform all 5 on the premier of their prime
time TV show. I have performed trick shots on every prime time
network, including ESPN USA and ESPN Asia.
Ask Blackjack David Sapolis what TV programs he has ever been on and
what records he has ever set. The answer is none and what you are
seeing from him is two things. Simple jealousy. Somebody is advancing
while he is sliding backwards. I have been paid to perform every year
since 1995 in pool's top 3 shows, the BCA Trade and Super Shows in
Las Vegas, and at the Hopkins in Philadelphia. How many times has
Blackjack appeared at these shows? Answer, none, because people do not
hire broken down nobody losers like him who have never done any thing,
never beaten any one and never won any thing. All he can do is lose
and use people. And what would he perform, his high run of 3? He is
known as ole 2 & out, the wimp gimp. This is the bum now causing me
all of this grief. Him and his wife Debra Li, Yappin wolf, they have
both been in on this attack all along.
I have 3 DVD's now on the market, ask him how many he has, answer,
zero. I have a pool school, I am out playing on the world 9 ball tour
in the UPA, I tour the world performing trick shot shows and he is
sitting home on his ass doing nothing but trashing me who is actually
out promoting pool and helping people.
A lot of guys like him saw me do the impossible, things they could not
do. Some gave me compliments, others called me a liar thinking there
was some catch or trick to what I was doing. They just could not or
would not accept I was stronger than they were. It never occurred to
them I had more talent than they did?
My advice is never ever do any thing nobody else can do as it brings
down the wrath of God upon you. If I could go back, I would not do it
over again, there was simply too much pain and suffering associated
with being called a liar over things I trained for a decade to actually
There has been this small group of very sick evil people who have been
trying to run down and destroy my records now for over 3 years on the
internet. They are, David Sapolis, his wife, Debra Li Sapolis, aka
yappin wolf and her convicted criminal in crime Eric T Hu. Li and Hu
are both Chinese. They print non stop lies, libels and slanders
against my name and accomplishments. Do not believe any thing these
criminals post. They put other people up to go off on me on these.
They call me a fraud and a phony. The real fraud and phony is David
Sapolis, who claims to have ran 200 balls, but when he was challenged
to prove it, he lied saying we have the newspaper article, but he never
put it up here and this and that guy saw it. We asked for their names
to verify it and he never responded again. So insist that this liar,
fraud and phony takes down this lie and remove it from every place he
has it published including the high run site. Realize who the real
fraud and phony here is and his name is David Sapolis.
Because I knew the world of pool was full of bums like Blackjack who
never really did anything and just made up the rest I knew I had to
prove what I did. I was the first and one of the very few since that
actually proved my accomplishments.
Others like blackjack before me said I ran 200 at the dew drop Inn and
ask Jake the Snake and Harry Da Horse, they saw it. What people like
him claimed was always total bull s***. I could pay Da Horse a 6 pack
or give him a bag of dope and he would swear I had leaped over the
Empire State Building. All that really counts are proof will stand up
in a court of law and all of mine will do exactly that.
You can now go into my chat site, www.poolchat.net and if you are
member, you can then enter the tutorial section and there are dozens of
pages where I explain all of this to you. You can go into
www.fastlarrypool.com and enter the trick shot show and there are many
shots there for you to see. You can go into Utube and enter my name,
Fast Larry and see shots I have done. You can order my two new DVD's
how to play pool and how to play trick shots and there are 36 trick
shots on them and on the end of the trick shot DVD 32 extra extreme
shots from the past. Once you view them and read the tutorials, you
will then understand and see, yes I really did do all of this.
Many of my world record shots are there for you to actually see first
There are 100 shots for you to see and just go out and try to duplicate
some of them. When you do, you will then know. I have invented 2000
trick shots; ask Bob Byrne, he will confirm this. I have filmed all
2000 of them including all of my world records. Byrne will confirm
this as well. They are captured on 63 two hour VHS tapes. I used to
sell them and 5 people bought the entire set of all 63. I no longer
offer them because they were filmed on $1 Kmart cheap tape and a 1993
home camera and they are now 14 years old and falling apart. The sound
is going and the images are blurring. Soon it will all be dust. I may
try and save and convert some of these next year into DVD but my plans
are to just re shoot some of the better ones on hi def DVD and not mess
with this low quality stuff any more. I do not offer them for sale
because every time I have to duplicate one, it may destroy it. The
tape is so weak I can not take the chance. They were not stored in a
stable temperate and they were in a garage where it went from freezing
to over 100.
People today say you have no records in the Artistic tour. Yes,
because I have never played on their tour and to be in their records
that is only for the players who set records in their events in their
competitions. That tour began the year I retired in 2000. I may
rejoin that tour in the spring of 2007 and actually try to again
compete after being retired from that competition for 8 years.
They say I have no records in Guinness and this is correct. When I
began setting records in 1993 they had no office in the USA and when I
submitted my pool records to them in the UK in London, they were
snooker chaps who stuck up their noses at pool players in the colonies.
I was told their book is too big already and they do not want any more
pool records, they have 3 and that is all they wish to publish. I
tried, they would not accept them. That later on changed about a
decade later and they did open an office in Ct and put on a show on TV
but I never bothered to reapply to them as by then I had retired.
Let this be clear, I have never published that I have any records in
their book but several others have and I always wrote them to correct
their error. I always printed that I set my records by using the
strict standards and rules set forth in their book.
I am the guy who actually tried to clean up this mess and came along
and said you guys can't just make this s*** up, you now have to prove
what you do. That went over like a beer fart in a crowded elevator. I
tried to set an honest example for them to follow. Prior to me all the
Artistic players just made up their titles. They were all calling
their selves world champions. One even called him self a 22 time world
champion and he had played nobody but ghosts he made up. It was a
total farce. Nobody back then wanted to go to all that trouble proving
any thing when they could just say I just set the world record for
making 21 balls in one stroke and how dare you insult great me by
daring to ask me to prove any thing. My word is good enough. That was
the way they all were back then.
I was the founder of the first world trick shot championship and my
organization was called TASA. It ran from 1995 to 2000 when I closed
it down and turned it over to the BCA. The first thing I did was to
shut down the Ghost Champion who clamed 22 world titles and was the
ultimate fraud and con of pool. When I exposed him for what he was, a
total phony he was the one who began these stories circulating around
that I was what he actually was, the fraud and the phony. He sought to
discredit me so nobody would believe what I was telling them about him.
He had a much bigger name than I did and most believed him at the
time. It took a few years but eventually he was exposed and now every
one knows he is a total joke and he no longer even works the BCA show
any more where he once ruled it. I suffered immense damage from this.
Blackjack may have just have picked up this old story and believed it
and then ran with it as many did.
There was no place to go to in order to establish and prove any
artistic pool record. None existed. The BCA refused to look at them.
Guinness would not accept them so there was a need for one to be
created and that is exactly what I did.
In TASA any one could submit any record and if they proved it. TASA
which was the governing body of Artistic pool world wide at the time
would approve and sanction the record for the player. All of my
records were sanctioned by TASA.
Prior to TASA, nobody could play in a world trick shot championship
because the Ghost Champion, PG, held it every year in Poland and only
invited him to play him and so he always won, year after year after
year playing just him. I just walked in and took it all away from him
and said, sue me over it, your fraud will never stand up in a court of
law. I beg you to sue me. Now for the first time any one could play
in a world trick shot championship and it was open to any one and
fairly ran. Any one can be the world champion but now you have to play
and defeat somebody. TASA produced several world champions and I was
one of them.
My 18 world records were not performed in a pool hall with drunks and
hustlers as my witness. There were all performed at Georgia Tech
University and they were filmed by an independent film studio called
TTN which I had no control over. My witnesses were state government
employees, teachers and physic professors. People of unquestioned
honesty. On every record I would walk into Ga Tech that evening and
ask the film crew to pick out any of the 20 tables that had been in
continuous play all day long which gave me no chance to do any thing to
enhance the table. I asked the desk man to hand me a cue ball which
was a $3 solid white cheap house ball. The tables were 10 year old
Gandy big G's with very cheap house cloth and 10 year old soft and
original rubber cushions.
I make my record, it was filmed, the witnesses went on tape to confirm
nothing was on the cloth or ball and it was all totally true and
legitimate. They also signed a paper with their names and phone
numbers and home addresses to confirm what they saw. Everything in
this package complied with all the rules of the Guinness world book of
records standards. On each world record I did a professional press
release was send out written by Steve Allen of Premier Publishing to
over 75 interested parties in the pool world and to all the major
magazines with the tape and the affidavits. When they saw this
evidence package which was over whelming and nobody who was not blind
could dispute it. I had gone over board to insure no one could. This
is why my major records on my 10 and 11 rail banks were published by
every major pool and billiard magazine world wide and I was on the
covers of 8 of these magazines. They accepted what they saw as true.
Ripley's did as well.
Two of my world records were not filmed and were in pool halls with
pool halls with witnesses who were just pool players. To confirm those
two I passed a lie detector test on both and during the last decade I
have offered to bet any one this was not true. I offered to bet 100K
to any ones 10K bet I could not pass another lie detector test on both
of them. That I made 8 balls on the break at 9 ball and that I set the
world record at rotation running 60 balls 4 racks calling every ball.
Nobody has accepted this challenge.
I thought that was the end of it all and I did not dream a small group
of jealous losers would continue to attack these records for all of
these years. Looking back on all of this today I feel I was stupid to
try and change these people or teach them honesty or integrity. I
wasted all of that time and money proving all of this for nothing. I
should have just lied about it like they were doing and moved on. I
should not have wasted 5 years playing pros to win a world title. I
should have just given my self the title like all of them did and saved
all of that grief. They all liked it the way it was. They did not
want me changing this and when I did they all went out of there way to
stop and shut me down. I rocked their boat.
I am the founder and father of all of this artistic competition and
their world championship. If I had not came along none of them would
be competing today. There would be no world championship or trick shot
magic. They owe it all to me and my vision and my courage to walk in
and bust up the Ghost Champion and end his rule of lies and monopoly.
I was the one who said you all have to play each other in order to call
your selves champions. That was me who did that.
I was the founder of the TASA trick shot hall of fame. All of this was
published in Billiards Digest and Pool & Billiards magazine which both
ran 3 pages spreads about the story and what we were doing.
There is the real story and all these press releases, the tape, the
affidavits I still have in my files.
I'll sign my name to this and pass a lie detector test on every word
