View Full Version : 1rst tournament win

Well, last night I went undefeated in a little mini tournament at the local pool room. Played pretty good tourney pool I think. I might be getting a little better at it. Now it sure wasn't the U.S. Open and Efren isn't running scared but I was pretty happy.

WOW Kato,
I'm so proud of you I could pinch your checks. Don't get the wrong idea, I'm not that proud.

C.C.~~has faith in RJ......

Barbara, if Chris is out to pinch Kato's cheeks, I think your safe. Rich R.~~~keeping my back to the wall. LMAO.

Of course your getting better RJ, and congrats on the win.
You know people play and practice and sometimes think they are not improving, or at least very little. Then it all comes together sometimes. Look forward to more victories, with a new sense of confidence. Once you win or get in the money a few times it does make it easier. CC is probably scheming on the weight issue now!

Ladies and gentlemen Chris is not allowed to pinch any of my cheeks. Barbara and Carol, feel free to abuse me as you see fit.

Kato~~~knows Voodoo fears nothing and C.C. gets NO weight ever!!!!!!

Congratulations Kato. I'm still a long ways from finding out what that feels like, but maybe some day. I'm happy for you.

CONGRATS!! You have the toughest one out of the way now. Once you have the confidence gained from placing that first "notch on your cue" winning becomes a little easier! Great job!

Ha Ha Ha-and remember Rich-LIQUID SOAP-you wont have to worry about "dropping the soap!" ha ha ha

04-16-2002, 03:42 AM
I'd never abuse you:)-I'd be right "BEHIND" you!

04-16-2002, 03:50 AM

Carol~still has NYC cup for Gayle!:)

Way to Go RJ!! I played in two tournaments this weekend. Played great just before and just after each...dogged it during the tourney. JimS needs to play in competition a bit more maybe!? Maybe plays with himself too much (don't go there!).

I'm sincerely envious RJ. Well done!

Wrong preposition Jim. By not with. LOL freudian slip perhaps? LOL Jake

Way to go guy's. Pick on the Cassman. I'm a kind little old guy with nothing but love in my heart. I never say anything to anyone that would offend them. I'm a total straight and would never pinch any cooliebutt's.

Just kidding, LMAO She still has that 10 foot pole I see.
Go ahead, pick on me, I can take it. Liquid soap hey, Carol? LOL I do like hugs. Thanks for backing me up Rich, thanks buddy. LMAO

I love you guys, your the best,
