Good shot Peter and I saw that match when it first came out, I thought you played well!Well, I ended up playing the reverse-English straight-back that Tom demonstrated in his video. However, I stroked it at pocket speed with lots of left English and maybe a tip below center with the intention of killing and hiding the CB behind those two balls. Luckily, I got position on the 2. The tables at 'Pool Table Magic' in Hartford, CT are ideal for straight pool, given their generous pockets. At the speed I played the 2, there was very little chance it wasn't gonna fall.
I was glad that match was over because I was playing as if I was walking on eggshells, and not staying down on some shots. But somehow I caught a stroke in my next two matches and beat Bob Madenjian (superb straight pool player) and Ike Runnels. In my fourth match, I dogged a ball to tie Alex Pagulayan at 3-3. That was a great experience for me, especially since I hardly ever go anywhere to play (of fear of running into Mitch ).

Well apparently we think alike since we keep choosing similar shots. But obviously you must think about me a lot since you mention me in every other post lol. I'm flattered. But you are way too strong for me so go pick on someone your own speed lol.
