George "Ginky" SanSouci (August 8, 1971 – March 8, 2011) was a professional pool player from New York City. He grew up in Yorkville, New York, and started his career as a player in Chelsea Billiards. SanSouci lived in Astoria, New York. George Edward SanSouci Jr. was the son of George Edward SanSouci Sr. and Jeanne Marie Cawley. He was raised in the Yorkville Section of New York (currently Upper East Side) He was given nickname "Ginky" by his mother Jeanne when he was born; it was the first word that he said. If anyone would call him "George," he never responded, but when they said the word "Ginky", he would giggle, it just stuck. He attended Bayard Rustin High School for the Humanities. He dropped out in his junior year. SanSouci lost his father at age four and was raised by his mother (who died in 1995) and an older sister, Irene. In 1995, Billiards Digest named San Souci as Rookie Player of the Year.
SanSouci retired in 2002 after he injured his neck, but he could not stay away from pool, slowly making a comeback. He competed regularly in a regional tour of the New York region, the Predator Nine-ball Tour, with Tony Robles, the 2004 BCA Open Champion, as the tournament director. His high run in straight pool was 343 consecutive shots which occurred on July 19, 2009 at Slate Billiards in New York City.[citation needed] SanSouci was also a member of the International Pool Tour, when it was active. SanSouci died on March 8, 2011, at age 39.
