I tossed out a proposal that we have two per year: one at Lacy's and one roving the country. I hear there are several rooms that have indicated they want us. I like the sound of Vegas if Mark Griffin would have us, Hard Times and HOB, and there are good rooms in North Carolina, Pennsylvania and several other places that have been mentioned. Scott's new room in Phoenix is a possibility.Congratulations Jeff. The Super Seniors are a devious bunch for sure. I thought this tournament was to be a revolving city tournament. Really makes it tough for the West Coasters to get there and Houston. Oh well, have camera, will travel.
Just heard that Jeff won the First Annual 1P event after marathon late night play. Congratulations Jeff!
After a long grueling battle with Newkirk, the match with our man Casey must have been a gun fight with two sharp shooters! And it was nice of James Christopher to then agree to one short race, given the lateness of the hour.
Looks like the Super Seniors took down the top four spots. It'll take y'all a day or two to rest up.
The tournament went longer than it needed to. If it's at Lacy's next year (Frank has already offered, and will put in bleachers, TV table, etc.) I'd suggest playing most of the events on the normal 4-1/2" pocket tables, and if desired, use one of the 4-1/8" tables for the streaming pit.
All of the matches on the super tight front tables went long; some, super long. Therefore the tournament went later than it ought to have. In my view, super tight tables are for pros only. There were no pros in this event. The small pockets, plus the natural humidity in the South combined to make the tables play super tough.
But it was a great inaugural event. Congratulations to everyone who played, and to all the behind the scenes guys who took their time and expense to make it happen!
OK, OK, but you're still young whippersnappers to me.First, John, I will be 68 Saturday, Tom W will be 65 in Nov.
