"Dr. Don"Don began playing pool at the age of eleven when his family moved to Mexico, Mo. At that time, Mexico had five separate pool halls open every day except Sunday. As a child Don didn't have a lot of money so he worked out a deal with the house man to clean the spittoons, tables, restrooms and floors in order to play free. This allowed him quite a bit of free time to learn to play the game. After many years of practice he began to develop his stroke and was on his way to becoming a pretty good player.
