History of Gus Copulos Add details

Legendary "Three Cushion" billiard player. One of the giants of the Golden Age. Gus was one of the inventors of the diamond system, particularly the so-called "plus two" system, and in the 1920's he was one of the most feared opponents in the country. He had a plus score against Willie Hoppe, and once scored 50 points against him in only 19 innings. He ran a 17 in the national league in 1924, 22 in an exhibition, and a remarkable 16 in call-shot three cushion, where you have to call every rail and kiss.
