I just read Wilbur Estes article on poor sportsmanship. I have watched Wilbur use that tactic and I do have mixed emotions about it but I am certain Wilbur did not consider it to be poor sportsman because I know Wilbur to have been a very good sport. It just so happened that I was right next to him when his opponent and he had that problem with the rain delay. I watched it play out for about 30 minutes. About ten drops of rain fell and his opponent stopped playing. He refused to play, and Wilbur was upset. I could not believe his opponent stopped playing when the few drops of rain dried up as soon as they fell. I had always known Wilbur to be a good sport. We have mentioned Wilbur through this article and because I am certain of what happened I will disclose who his opponent was. It was Maurice Baker. They were both friends of mine as well as the tournament director. Sometimes people step out of character.
