Winning At Any Age

Forever it will be marked that on Tuesday August 30th Ray “Cool Cat” Martin beat Oliver “The Machine” Ortmann and proved that even at 76 he still has what it takes. Not only did Ray prove he can win at any age he hasn’t even been playing professional pool for 20 years. Coming out of retirement he easily showed that he’s got the skills to take on those eager players. Ortmann would normally have had the advantage but Ray was not going down without a fight. Amongst a packed crowd Martin scored his victory over last year’s champion. He has also been inducted into the Hall of Fame this evening, which is clearly well deserved.
