Danny “Kid Delicious” Basavich
Danny “Kid Delicious” Basavich has been playing professionally only for a few years. In that short time he has made a name for himself by winning tournaments and heads-up matches. His nickname came from one of these heads-up matches when he played a player nicknamed “Kid Viscious”, where after defeating his opponent one spectator commented, “If his name is Kid Viscious, your name should be Kid Delicious.” Well the name stuck and Danny became the player with the cool nickname that had the game to back it up. He won the Reno Open in December of 2004 and has his eyes on more tournaments. He has released a DVD lesson set and a traing cue ball to help others play the game. Danny has recently acquired Pittsburgh Steel as one of his major sponsors. Danny also has a soft side. He donates a portion of his winnings to charity.
