Sounds like you did a good job representing 1P.org, congratulations!As I'm sitting here waiting for my flight I thought I'd give my Derby report.
Saturday night dinner was great. The food and Onepocket friends were all great.
Sunday was a day I could only dream about. I played the best most consistent 1p of my life. I beat almost everyone I was in action with, thanks Disco Dave, Bernie, and Miller. Max Eberle quit me after two games breaking even.
I lost my first match to Warren Kiamco 3-1. I played very well but the trap I put Warren in wasn't tight enough and his QB control was near perfect.
After playing Miller till 4am I was a disaster all day Monday. My buy back match went hill hill. First game I was up 4 balls to 0 and gave the game away. Second game I was up 6-2 and gave it away. Third game I was up 7-1 shooting my winner. As I was looking at the 15 ball I swear it looked like it said 115. Holly crap 2.5 hours of sleep is bad bad news. Thank god I wasn't flying a plane. I dogged it bad and sold out a bunch. But my opponent gave it back. Fourth game I was up and dogged it but was given back to me. On the break my opponent sold out a back cut that I missed but left it close and the QB long. He got the ball out but I out move him and held it together for the win.
Today I played Niels Feijen and lost 3-0. I was consistently hooked or in bad positions. WOW these world champions control the QB so well it makes it very difficult to play. I did manage to came with a few great shots but never got the extra roll I needed.
Thanks to all the sponsors for supporting me and Onepocket.org
If we are serious about the 1P player advancing farther, we may have to impose a moratorium on members matching up with the Chosen One while he's still alive in the tournament. But that wouldn't be any fun.
