LEGENDS NEVER DIE
Rudolph Luther "Minnesota Fats" Wanderone, Jr., a.k.a. "New York Fats"; "Fatty", "The Bank Shot Bandit", "The Fat One", "Triple Smart", "Dean of the Green", "Double Smart Fats", a.k.a. (??). A hustler of many names, Fats was an excellent pool player, though his skills did not qualify him as among the very best. His claim to fame was as a huckster and showman, earning him appearances on international television and in the Billiards Congress of America's Pool Hall of Fame for "Meritorious Service".
Born in Brooklyn, New York, the son of Swiss immigrants, "Fats" hung around pool halls before traveling cross country as a pool hustler. To his credit, the "Fat One" was ever a consummate showman and pool shooter, even into his golden years. He would challenge entire poolrooms, inviting the audience to take his side for a bet, asking, "Can you believe how so-and-so wants to hustle me?"
To get a tight lock on his opponents, Fats always cried for mercy from his victims before hustling all their cash. He liked to insure his money with a large spot, even from the biggest fish in the pond.
ONE OF THE MOST COLORFUL FIGURES OF ANY SPORT!
Fats died the day before his birthday in Nashville, Tennesse, of congestive heart failure, and left the world a superstar as he spent most of his tragicomic life.
A longtime Nashville resident, Fats enjoyed visiting country music nightclubs where bands introduced him nightly, leaving him besieged by admirers.
Never winning a world championship, Wanderone was Pool's top orator, comic, and publicity machine.
