As some of you know I play a lot of pool. Going to Vegas to play in a Masters pool tournament this month. Leaving on August 17th and returning on the 25th. Went once before, 2008, and finished 32nd out of 195. Won $150 for that placement. Top prize is $10,000. Have been playing well lately and hope I can bring that with me.
Wish me luck guys I need all I can get.... Grin   Smile  Laugh
Thanks, Dave

Here is my practice table:

Thanks Wayne,
I was thinking more in the lines of axle grease on my opponents shoes. It's hard to play when you are sitting on the floor. Smirk

Thanks for the good wishes guys.
I have been playing in competition for quite a few years now. I am still quite erratic however. Last week I only missed about 2 shots in an entire race to 7. Sometimes I miss that many in every game. I think my brain is warped.

If you live close to Knoxville, Tenn. Scott I would invite you over to play.
Talk cars and play pool 2 of my favorite things. Smile

It's a five hour commute, one way. I have in-laws in LaFollete. Haven't been there in six years or more.

Well it was not a total disaster. I won 2 matches then lost the next 2 and was out. I did not finish in the money, over 250 entries. Played very well in the second match against a player who was better than the ones I lost to, only missed one shot and one bank. I was on the hill in both the matches I lost but I did not close it out.
Had a good time any way.
The flight back from Vegas was a real pain. Some airline personnel in Vegas were bad and the lines were awful. Plane was late and missed connection. Airline did put us up for the night and paid for a couple of meals.
