24 Ronnie O'Sullivan

Ron O'Sullivan is amazing and is #1 in today's time

Should be on the top

Not a pool player...

Beautiful touch on the snooker table. I've seen only one pool player with a touch like Ronnie's, and that was Shane Van Boening before he became a pro. He was fast and loose.

25 Buddy Hall

In the 70s & 80s- NOBODY could touch buddy hall playing 9 ball. I saw the so-called best in the world try and all they got was embarrassed and broke. he's the best 9 ball player Ever!

26 Wu Jia-qing
27 Derek Leonard

Derek Leonard other wise known as Chew. He is a pool shark and can out hustle most anybody. He beat someone out of big money with his children there, dad First right?


28 Tony Watson

One of the fastest players with incredible ball pocketing ability.

Tony's high gear in his late 20's is the greatest I've ever witnessed. Just ridiculous.

I have played tony and can say for a fact one of the best

Best gambler that's not a pro

29 Justin Bergman
30 Raj Hundal

'The best doo-rag wearing pool player of all time! '

31 John Schmidt
32 Allison Fisher

She is a machine, and I rate her #1 certainly of the women, and would have her higher on the list of all players

33 Jim Rempe

An artist with cue.

Very methodical at all the games,one of the best all time!

34 Ralph Greenleaf

Ralph Greenleaf was the Babe Ruth of he's not on here, I have no idea

Greenleaf ran 287 pool balls on a 10 foot pool table. Also the pockets were very tight.when mosconi ran 526 pool balls the pockets were 5 inches. Also Greenleaf taught mosconi a lot of what he knew.

35 Rudolph Wanderone

As they say "ignorance is bliss".

Absolutely top notch "Phenomenal" bank player.

Hall of Fame

Just a big mouth with a flashy style. He was never in the league of Mosconi, Luther Lassiter, Steve Mizerak and many others. I grew up near Johnston City, Illinois and had occasion to know this. He made more money in by making bets on eating.

36 Ronnie Allen

The guy who invented power one ronnie miss ya

37 Jean Balukas
38 John "Omaha" Shuput
39 William Hoppe

To be gone for so long pays tribute to a true master. He used to play on a table mounted atop an auto, but in a tournament was THE man to beat, and they couldn't!

Watched him in demonstration back in the early 1950's. Amazing what he did with the cue and table.
