Am Playing?

Am Playing?

I'm not quite sure that I will play this event.

It's not always that easy to play and stream at the same time.

I know what you mean, Daniel. I've tried to TD and also play, at tournaments I've run, and it doesn't work too well with me. Some guys can do it comfortably, e.g. Grady, Tommy Kennedy; but it's too distracting for me.

Streaming takes a lot of attention to the cameras, angles, band width, commentators, etc., so it's difficult to do all that and to play also. On the other hand, if you have someone who could fill in for you during your matches, it might allow you to concentrate enough to play in the event.

Good luck~

I am expecting a full bracket!

Should be a lot of fun and we are going to see some great matches.

If I can break away from commentary, I shall work on getting some closer shots with the second camera angle!

Live Stream around 11:30AM PST

Well it didn't happen for me. I was playing good until they put me on the TV table. Seems like I lose focus when that happens. Either that or maybe because I forgot to eat something to keep my energy up. I'm good at doing that. My wife stopped by and reminded me to eat something but I completely forgot as soon as she left. Oh Well.
John Schmidt was playing good and decided to forfeit out of the tournament. Why I don't know. I'll try to find out the skinny on that and try to report on that later. I going back today and will probably get on the mic with Daniel of POV. Good thing is I'm only 5 minutes from there.
One pocket Rich didn't play. Wayne said that Rich developed a hitch in his stroke and couldn't play.
And yes gulfportdoc, JS is living back in Victorville Ca.

The story I got was that John thought that this tournament was a one day event. He had plans already made for Sunday and didn't want to change them.

Wondering who won it... Schmidt may have had plans with a current buxom beauty. Seems like he's usually got himself a hot tomato!:cool:

Yeah first time I saw him play there was a girl in tow. That was like 15 years ago and he looked like a college preppy.

Well you know that Schmidt is a pool nut, because all his gals have great racks on them! (za-boom!):cool:
