So to this I think the fact Tony went into that day with the obvious plan to throw Alex off by taking smoke breaks at about twice the pace he had the previous 2 days, at one point taking a break after consecutive games, and always taking breaks on games he won. He won like 8-3 games over that stretch. All this happened after Alex had already complained about too many smoke breaks the 1st 2 days, so obviously a shark move by Tony. Alex finally took his own break, got some food to recharge and got his focus back. Good for him, yet another thing he beat Tony at.Tony had Alex on day 3. I do not remember the score when the infamous Alex break occurred. A good 30 mins. with Tony waiting and burning himself out practicing, and I said to myself; "oh no".
Then comes back Alex, but a new Alex, not the Alex that just hit the wall, but the energized bunny Alex. Well ok, but it tainted the event for me.
