Some people are "show me" others are "let me do it" type of people.
I thought it'd be interesting to share the different levels of learning and how passive and active learning is different:
"I was sad to hear that you were ending the Omega Tour. You did an amazing job and provided a incredibly organized venue for a huge community of pool players of all skill levels. What a success story! You should be very proud of what you've done all these years. To offer a tournament that constantly fills up months in advance is evidence of how everyone loved the tour. Now is your chance to take some well deserved time off. I personally have enjoyed all the events I played in."Such kind words.
"I connected really well with the table and my inner self in the last match and played very well. Yesterday I was full of stress because of car trouble, etc, etc. But I managed to find 3 wins in spite of it. No stress today! I prepared myself mentally and emotionally today. It has paid off so far. I have lots of patience, a huge desire for perfection, and confidence that whatever picture I draw in my mind will be realized on the table. If I get beat today it will not be because I beat myself, someone will have to play really well! 😀😏"
After much consideration and sleepless nights, myself and the sponsor of the Omega Billiards Tour made this announcement today:
"Due to increased responsibilities at my job and any potential future career opportunities and because Omega Billiards Supply (the sponsor of the Omega Billiards Tour) needs to make sound business and financial decisions, we are sad to announce we have unfortunately mutually agreed we can no longer move forward with the Omega Billiards Tour after this year. This was not an easy decision - actually one of the hardest decisions! - but we must each do what is best for our livelihood and future pensions. We are very thankful for you all helping put the DFW pool scene back on the map for the past five and a half years! We know in our hearts this is just a start for more amazing things to come to the area. We love the players, pool rooms and the fans and we wish you all nothing but the best in your pool journeys!"
I want to sincerely thank you for always being so supportive, responsive, and a great friend to myself and the Tour. Please know this is one of the most difficult of decisions.
