Pool World Mourns Loss of Johnny Ervolino

Johnny Ervolino

The pool world lost another legend on Saturday morning as Johnny Ervolino passed away at his home in Las Vegas. Ervolino suffered a heart attack a week ago and was recovering from that when he had another heart attack on Saturday morning.

While Ervolino was most known for his straight pool game, he was also a champion one pocket player. Ervolino had reportedly ran 300+ balls playing straight pool less than a year ago. Not only was Ervolino a great player, but he was also a great teacher who helped a number of current players with their games.

Ervolino was with his daughter, whom he lived with, when he passed on Saturday morning.
