Danny Basavich "Kid Delicious"
Danny Basavich, popularly known as "Kid Delicious" is a former pool hustler turned pro player. Acquiring the nickname "Kid Delicious" after defeating pool rival "Kid Vicious" Eddie Hubler, he grew up in New Jersey and discovered a natural talent for playing pool in his teens.
By the time he was around 18 he was able to win money "hustling" local pool halls and by his mid twenties was earning as much as $200,000 a year hustling pool halls across America. Once his game was discovered, he switched to professional pool and was awarded "Rookie of the Year" in 2004 by the United Pool Players Association.
