Mizerak's favourite game was straight pool and he won the US Open in this discipline from 1970-1973. He also won the 1978 US Open in 9-ball. Later in life he took to One Pocket, finishing runner-up in two "Legends of One Pocket" events.
He will also be remembered for his appearances on both the small and big screen. He starred in commercials and performed in the movies Baltimore Bullet and The Color of Money.
