Yep. I will be there. Should be a blast. Both Jimmy and Petie Fusco already signed up, as well as Hopkins. Imagine if I played him. Spectators may actually go blind watching our strokes. 😊

frank you need to enter this
the experience will be worth WAY MORE than the entry fee
I'm not a fortune teller but I can predict where I would be after the first match.
I can afford the entry fee but would be better off at the casino with it.
Me in the Tournament would be like playing 1 on 1 with Doc J.
I appreciate the push but have to say no. It'll be more exciting to watch these guys. Plus I don't want to take any money from J. Fusco... J/K
Rather play you when we get a chance. I know the music will be better:lol

I just might have to make it too. If I play, Mitch will have a shot at not going 2-and-out!

i disagree with your logic
with all due respect
at the casino you dont get anything back for losing your money
think of it this way
you are guaranteed to play at a minimum 7 games....:)
every inning you prevent your opponent from running out should reinforce to you your understanding and execution of "the moves" "of one pocket
plus playing more experienced players has to help your game

there is no pressure because you are not expected to win.....:)
just sayin
i will call you later
we can talk about it

As someone has already stated, the experience alone will be worth it!! It's all about clearing the schedule (begging) with my wife lol.

And Cory... You should definitely come!!! We can lay stakes on our match at least. Although I may need odds.

If I played it would be only to be on the playing floor for bragging rights. I would be like Rudy. I'm not afraid of anything (Making a fool of myself). But a good run beats a bad stand. I did kibbitz with Tom for the past several months. I did have a few good moves. I moved the cue ball every time he went the bathroom.
Seriously not for me. Local amateurs no question about it.

Damn. I would try to come and play but with such a limited field I doubt I'll be able to get in by the time I can become sure I'd be able to come.

Too far to come to spectate, but I've been wanting to get up there to see you and open up that lockbox of yours, so maybe.... :heh

Does that describe what it would be like for me. Seriously not for me. Local amateurs no question about it.
I really want to say something positive and encouraging about your jumping in, but there's a word that seems to be blocking all other thoughts: PUSSY! :D

We can have a tontine among the walking dead in the tournament: When anyone gets eliminated they kick in $50 or $100. Last one standing takes it all. Must be active on 1P.org and need 11-7 or better from Rob Melrose to qualify. If we all go 2-and-out then we eat a hell of a steak dinner.

My lockbox apparently has a revolving door. Currently it only allows the money to exit! Lol.

Seriously though. They are taking PayPal if you wanted to enter, John. I bet there will still be a spot when you are ready. That would be huge fun if you joined it. You are a hoot :)

That's a cool idea man.

Dangit!

Just move this about 4 or 5 hours to the west and I am there!! :)

Once again, another event I will be jealous about not attending.

Good luck Mitch, Cory and anyone else from 1p.org that goes!

The more I think about it I'd make out better playing a change machine all night.
Put a dollar bill in... Get 4 quarters back every time. Can't lose. Break even.

Meow partner. Puss and boots baby. Seriously my wife won't let me out. No wrong...my cue is in the cleaners and they're closed. Really I think I have to work then.
I do not like to compete. Simply prefer to play for 3-4 hours on any given afternoon. That's all I'm looking at... for now. I'd rather donate the entry fee to a charity that could use it.

Call me a pussy again and I'll claw your eyes out :lol:lol....but you have me thinking now. Maybe I'll give J. Fusco the break and a few balls so I'll have an alibi.
And while everyone is in Phoenixville be nice to a Blob. The movie the Blob was filmed there and there's a Blob-Fest each year.

Only 6 spots left so I had to act. Lots of killers in this field, but I just got in. Can't wait to upset a few apple carts. I'm taking bets now that I am the lowest in the Calcutta 😂.
