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

I’m an adventurous 30-year-old from the Netherlands. I started playing pool as a nine-year-old standing on an empty Coca-Cola crate to be able to reach the cue ball and grew out to a hobbyist with 15 national titles on his name. Now, I consider myself a one pocket enthusiast and push for one pocket to electrify the Netherlands and Europe. I therefore started the One Pocket Series, a national tour to promote the game. Next to that, I've studied cultural anthropology, I currently work at a casino, and truly love the outdoors. My ambitions are big, my dreams even bigger.
