About Stevie Moore

Dear Friends,

I was born and raised in Spartanburg, SC. I started playing pool at the age of 12 and soon realized that I really enjoyed this marvelous game. I won my first tournament at the age of 13. I was driven. I knew that playing pool was my calling, and I wanted to be the best I could be.

At the age of sixteen, something happened that would have a tremendous impact on my life. I got to play with Earl Strickland for eight months. Earl is truly one of the greatest champions of all times. He was my idol at the time. This was truly a dream-come-true. I continued my path by playing tournaments all over the US. While this life was not always easy for a young guy like myself, the experiences truly helped with seasoning my game.

I reached a major milestone of my career in 1995. I had always dreamed of becoming a World Champion by the age of 21. I had worked so hard, day after day, after day to achieve this goal. In the end, I was the Bar Table Champion of the World, while barely being of legal drinking age.

Having accomplished this tremendous achievement was a blessing and a curse at the same time. I may have set back a little too much after becoming World Champion. I continued playing many regional tournaments in the Southeast and traveled all over the US playing pool, but I did not really play major tournaments.

To be sure, I do not think I wasted my time. All these years on the road truly helped me improve my game. I just did not have titles to show for all the effort and I was just searching, but never quite found what I was looking for.

A few years back, I almost gave up on playing pool. I was just tired of living on the road all the time. In fact, I was ready to become a mailman. Then suddenly the IPT surfaced. Many people surrounding me encouraged me to try out for the IPT. I truly thank all of you. You know who you are. I always was very lucky in that I always had great people around me.

Now I really enjoy the competition of pool again. I am finally back on the path I wanted to take all along. I want to become the best pool player in the world. And I am going for it now. Better watch out, Efren. I know that I can compete with the very best in the world.

I have beaten quite a few of them recently, including Johnny Archer, Thorsten Hohmann and Mika Immonen. I eliminated Alex Pagulayan, the 2005 US Open winner, from the last US Open. I have beaten Gabe Owen, the 2004 US Open Champion, a few times. I beat The Magician in the final of the 2007 Derby City Classic Banking Division. And I also won or finished high in quite a few pretty big events around the Southeast recently, in which also many current and former Mosconi Cup players participated.

I am ready and I hope you will support me in my quest for becoming the No. 1 player in the world.

Sincerely yours,

Stevie
