I should have posted this from the get go, but I guess I was caught up in the moment-
I know SO MANY of you here and I very,very much appreciate all your support,but, I think it would be nice to congratulate the true winner and that is Val Finnie!
She is in a strange country and is doing her best at what she loves-pool!And doing a great job at it! /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
We may have been dog-eat-dog at the table, but after the matches, it was fun and laughter-Val and Kelly are great people /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif
Third may be okay, but FIRST is GREAT!
So, congratulations Val-you earned it!

Yes, Val does deserve a lot of credit. She went up 4-1 on Romana, but to Romana's credit, she came back to start that see-saw battle to hill-hill.

This is the shot that Val scratched on in the final game of the match.

She drew that CB all the back into that corner pocket with an open bridge.

Romana had to pocket the 6, but got short on the 8 and had to extreme cut it inot the corner pocket, but it hung.

Ouch.
