I drove to the Mosoni Cup that was held in Vegas, my first time to EVER drive there, and I have been going to Vegas for 1-3 times a year for about 20 years, lol. I'll be sharing pics soon of my travel there because I stopped at a lot of cool places I had never seen before. :)
one night, my b/f and I went to a local $5 tourney in Arizona. I wanted to play
in it to see how I would do, to test out how I would
play in front of strangers. Normally my heart beats right out of my chest and I think too much in these type of situations.
although all eyes were on the out-of-towners, I still played really
freaking sporty! Every guy I played, people would tell me, "he's plays
good" and then I would win 2-0, lol. I was really coming with great
banks and shots!
I even impressed myself, lol.
The tourney was on open bar tables at a bowling alley, and the players were really nice!
ended up playing my b/f in the hotseat. I broke and ran the first set
and was about to win the 2nd, but instead of playing conservative, I got
too cocky and wanted to show off a little, and instead of taking a long
shot on the 8 ball, I tried to be fancy and move around the table
and missed. He got out and broke and ran the last game to win. Ugh!
One shot cost me a seat in the finals!
I lost the next match 1-2 and got $21 for third place and $5 for last lady (which they paid me about an hour before, lol).
It was cool to play so well in front of strangers. Everyone told both of us how well I played. It was cool. :)
