I played in a bar table tourney a couple of weeks ago now.
Two of my friends and I bought two top players in the tourney - split three ways seems like a great deal! Less up money and more players we can get in the calcutta.
After I won my two matches, I'm playing in my third but have to go get quarters.
As I walk by one of the other matches, my friend leans in towards me and confides, "Man, I can't play Coy, he's tough and I'm just not playing well against him."
Normally at this point, I would give encouraging advice. I would remind her to breath and play pool, focus on the game.
But I had to stop myself before the first helpful word sputtered out - her opponent was one of the guys we bought in the calcutta! I can't give her advice right now, wtheck!
So, I just kept walking back to my table to play my game with no advice given. Hurt my heart because I like to help my friends during tournaments, but I gotta think of my pockets and also of the other two guys I'm in with.
