Ronnie Allen Road Stories

Ronnie Allen Road Stories

I found this series of audio files on YouTube, posted by fastlenny69, of Ronnie Monroe “Fast Eddie” Allen telling his best road stories. He was inducted in the One Pocket Hall of Fame in 2004 and was the one who dominated the one Pocket scene from the 1960s up to the 1980s in the States. He loved to gamble and was a real entertainer. He appears to be a great storyteller as well. Listen to his stories in which he tells about the times when he competed with America’s greatest hustlers and ended up playing with the Mexican mafia under the pressure of a machine gun, and I’m not talking about Lou Boutera.

About Pepijn de Wit

An adventurous pool player from the Netherlands who’s a croupier and curious cultural anthropologist in need of knowledge to understand the world around him, goes by the name Pepijn de Wit. He values experiences more than anything and wants to see, and learn as much of the world as possible before leaving it. Hustling, the most charming and dark element of pool, would therefore not be his trade, although it would make it easier for him to stop mind-traveling while surfing the internet. He applauds cultural diversity, the ambitious, the graceful, and the open-minded. His ambitions are big, his dreams even bigger. He’s a One Pocket lover, tournament director of the One Pocket Series, and pushes for One Pocket to take over and electrify Europe!
