It took a detour of about six hundred miles to meet our friend, “Moves” in a pool hall somewhere in Texas. Moves is a retired player who, as a kid, worked with Titanic Thompson, arguably the greatest hustler of all time. Moves learned all of Thompson’s tricks and even practiced them to perfection. “Ty” was as clever as he was skillful and could talk anyone into anything, when given the chance. Recent books have told parts of the Titanic Thompson story but this is a first hand account of the man himself from someone who knew him well and climbed a lot of ladders to help get the money. We’ve hidden his face so as not to advertise his identity.
