I'd like to add that they do not come any better than Larry. Right from the get go when I joined he became a great member friend towards me, and has always been there for me when I needed it. He is the 'Cooler' and for me my double check before I go off the deep end, reeling me back in. Thanks 'Cooler' Larry!

Well, I do not know if you like the nickname of 'Cooler' but I just deleted a post for I thought better of it, and was thinking of my cooler half, and that said delete it. Thanks 'Cooler', I appreciate it, and I am sure many other old head members do also! Whitey

Whitey & lll, Howdy;

Well, thought I was getting things back in order. Tony was a no show today so
I went and did my normal stuff, check stroke, some Corner 5 and +2's then
went into Rotation for 3 racks and some 14.1, 4 racks. Everything was doing
fine. The Banks I attempted went in the hole, not all but the misses weren't to
far off so I felt good about that. Then the tourney started, you'd be wrong to
think I did well. Felt like I got steamrolled by a heard of midget Hippos. Up-n-
down then up-n-down and out ... I did get the "Shiney new Quarter" for being
the first one out. Hung around and watched the rest play. Why not it was 99*
and they had the swamp coolers working ... .

Now I need to get the solo working stuff to meld with the other folks too stuff.

As always, all thoughts and suggestions welcomed.

hank

I had a former student come over the other day, he wanted me to work with him on 8-ball strategy. But I was unable to for my daughter and family came over, so he hit by himself. But I stepped in on him when he was ready to stop practicing, and he had about 8 balls on the table, and I gave him a strategy lesson on that layout concerning shooting stripes or solids. He then asked me if shooting on a 5 x10 would screw him up for the bar table 4 x 8 tournament tonight. I said; "no". He thought he was really practicing well. He won the tournament, his first one ever, and he went undefeated straight through.

I think practicing by himself without me there allowed him to focus more, and I gave him just enough input to give him what he thought was a mental edge. I mean he is the type that has a million things going through his head on each shot. If I would of coached him up for an hour then the tournament would of been a disaster for him, to much going on in his head.

For you and everyone our age, I believe it is going to be a roller coaster ride, it is not like when we were young and had instant recall. Once we got a shot, we had it. Go a week or two without shooting and still got it. Heck I can not remember short term worth a heck and I believe this effects pool. Whitey

Whitey, Howdy;

Thinkin' your take on what happened with your student is what happened.
Good to hear he won his tourney.

Found out why Tony didn't make it Tues. He passed away that afternoon. I was
told about it yesterday by 2 of his nieces. Congestive heart failure.

Anyway, ... I was warming up when I got the news and just kept on warming up
Things were flowing kinda well nothing special. Got into the tourney and walked
right through it to win. Yea, me! Along the way things that were being worked
on were working. Perhaps not at 100% but above 45%. Being 9-ball shot selection
is limited, at best. I was able to connect the dots several times to make some
shots I wouldn't have even thought of a short while ago. Thank you and
everyone else that has contributed here for y'all's support. I think that Tony,
may have had a hand in putting down the Hipster Canteen Mgr. Tony loved
shooting Banks. I'm gonna miss him.

hank

Sorry for your lost! Shooting partners are very special, and Tony loving banks may of meant he was more than likely an old school 9-ball player. Great win, and Tony was right there with you making those winning shots! Whitey

Whitey, Howdy;

Thanks.

He spent most of his life in the Bay area around San Francisco, moved back here
in the early 2000's. He barely talked about his early years of playing pool.
It's the reputation in this area as "The One to Beat" that I first heard about. But
that was before his stroke, and the open heart surgery he'd had before I first met
him. Gonna feel lonely sittin' at the table we shared during the Tourneys.
