Troy, good luck in the tournament. Go for the cash, but remember the old saying, "Strive for excellence over victory."

I've played in that p/h a number of times. Does Terry still own it? I loved the backroom set-up for spectators. good luck...... /ccboard/images/icons/smile.gif

94 Players. Paying 24 places. Got roped into helping TD get organized. Finally started tourney at 2PM. PA didn't work. Won my first match. Help TD keep track of W/L, open tables & calculate spots. Lost 2nd match. Help TD more. Won 3rd set. Help TD again. Won 4th set. Help TD. Lost match -- I'm out of tourney & out of the money. Forgot to eat, food break. Work on payout breakdown with TD. 11PM and down to final 24 for tomorrow......... Ignore the action, Sleep.

Started at Noon today with 8 from Winner's side, 16 on 1-loss side. Real smooth going today. TD lost the payout plan. Had to re-calculate payout. Didn't wait to see who won. Hit the road.

2H 30 Min drive home. Relax, eat dinner. Write this.

Troy...~~~ G'nite..... /ccboard/images/icons/smile.gif ZZZZZZZZZ

You were'nt going their with the idea of helping the TD run the thing, were you? You can't give your total concentration on your game if your running the thing. Still, you really didn't do all that bad. One out of the doe is common for me. Don't like it and never get used to it but atleast I enter. Good Luck next time and know we all were pulling for ya.

Troy, it's a wonder you got that far in the tournament, good job. I always found it extremely difficult to run a tournament and play well. At the begining of the tournament it might be ok, but it takes it's toll mentally if you are needed all day. Not eating hurts big time. Next time say no way, I come to play!

Thanks for the kind words guys.
I obviously thought an experienced TD was involved and I was just gonna hang out and play. But Tony Annigoni is a friend and he asked me to get involved since their guy was out of control. I won't go into details, but I will say the TD had 4-5 entry lists and money in 4-5 envelopes with no idea if the total was correct. Also, since it was a handicap tourney, spots needed to be calculated for all matches, etc, etc.....

Troy...~~~ Will recover..... /ccboard/images/icons/smile.gif
