I will play in a local monthly one pocket tournament tomorrow. $30 entry fee, double elimination race to two. We get between 30 and 40 players and if you are in the last four players you are there til 3 or 4am. I have been 3rd the last three months. I really look forward to this each month, but it kind of ruins Sunday because I don't get home til 4 to 6am. Not much $$ involved, maybe $150 to $200 for 3rd, but great competition at a great pool room, Hard Times Billiards in Sacramento.As we age I guess we all wish for the older days. They seem simpler and more rewarding.
However I still look forward to the next pool game.
If we run into each other I still would like to play, but I just don't travel much anymore. Maybe Phoenix when the weather gets better and you go back. Bernie said you were playing better last time you were there and it is a tough game for me, but I never minded that, just like to play and there are not that may guys near our age to gamble with.
