After San Antonio

Posted 07-02-2014 at 09:54 AM by Rhea (On the Road with Rhea)

After I left San Antonio I hopped on a bus and headed to Dallas.

When I arrived in Dallas my new road partner Deathball/Tree Money picked me up from the bus station.

I steered him around Dallas, Richardson, and Arlington for a week. We made a few decent scores. He beat Coy Lee out of $800 getting spotted 10-5 in 1 pocket at Rusty's.

Then we headed to Houston for a tournament that we found out was cancelled when we got there. So I decided with my $400...

San Antonio

Posted 04-26-2014 at 01:07 AM by Rhea (On the Road with Rhea)

Thursday, woke up early checked out of my motel.

Called my friend Debi and asked her for a ride to Chesters.
Got dropped off at Chesters and matched up with a few people.

Around 6pm I called Debi again to give me a ride to Greyhound, she had ran out of gasoline so she had to call me back later on.

I was intent on getting on the bus by 9pm that night however things did not go as planned. By the time she picked me up she told me she didnt think she...

Fargo billiards and Gastropub

Posted 04-16-2014 at 01:48 PM by Rhea (On the Road with Rhea)

Gene gave me a lift to Fargo where I purchased my ticket going to Oklahoma City, however the bus didn't depart until 1pm the next day. So, we killed some time by playing at Fargo Billiards. There Gene took first place, and I took fourth.

I even beat Rory Hendrickson 2-1 on the one loss side.

Just arrived this morning in Oklahoma City, my friend Keirsten picked me up from the bus stop, we are going to hit two tournaments tonight, one is at a strip club and the other...

4 Bears Casino and Lodge

Posted 04-14-2014 at 09:11 AM by Rhea (On the Road with Rhea)

Gave gas money to a guy in Elk City to drop me off in New Town North Dakota

Got to the 4 Bears Casino, could not afford a room the entire time I was there, Rooms were $106-$130 per night.

41 women were in my division and I mailed in my entry a week ago. I made it to the top 16 and they did a redraw and had a calcutta.

I went for $475 and could not afford half of myself, I was all in with my last $95 for 20% of myself.

I won third place...

Pitt Stop

Posted 04-08-2014 at 12:22 AM by Rhea (On the Road with Rhea)

Played in the Monday night Pitt Stop tournament and did not place.

Got some action playing Dean $100 sets afterward. Played him a race to seven and he beat me 7-5. Then because we were short on time we played a race to 4 for $100 and I won 4-1.

I have action with James the bartender at Pitt Stop tomorrow before his shift starts, races to 5 for $100.

Clinton, Oklahoma

Posted 04-06-2014 at 09:16 PM by Rhea (On the Road with Rhea)

Yesterday at Jamaica Joes I did not do well in the tournament. I drew Liz Lovely first round, and was eventually knocked out of the tournament by Michelle McDermott. I finished 7th place which had no payout. I also bought Tommy Tokoph for $300 in the calcutta, he finished 9th place which was not enough to cash in the calcutta.

Today I played at Hideout in Clinton, OK. I won first place for $70.

Pitt Stop

Posted 04-04-2014 at 10:52 PM by Rhea (On the Road with Rhea)

Won 3rd place tonight, lost my first match and got lucky every single match afterwards, paid $10 to get in spent about $10 in quarters and got $64... also I went for $65 in the calcutta the highest player in the auction, I ended up buying half of myself for $32.50 and only got $62 for 3rd so I got $31 which was my half.

Disappointed with my play tonight hopefully I can keep my composure and play well tomorrow in the big Jamaica Joes tournament.

Elk City

Posted 04-03-2014 at 04:19 PM by Rhea (On the Road with Rhea)

Played Ryan and won $5.

Played Tiny at the PittStop today, was down by $50 but came back and won $10 by the time I had to leave, although I'm pretty sure we spent over $10 in quarters playing so I broke even at best.

Playing at Redneck Heaven tonight at False Lake in their weekly tournament.

Solo Again continued

Posted 04-03-2014 at 12:18 AM by Rhea (On the Road with Rhea)

The past couple nights have been productive, Yesterday morning I started off helping this guy install a granite countertop, I helping him cut and move it then put it in a bathroom, at the end of 4 hours he paid me $30, that really helped me out since he knew I was pretty bust.


Then last night I went to slick willies and left $100 richer.

Today I left Slick Willies $95 richer than I entered.

Tomorrow I play in the 2nd chance tournament with $500...

Solo Again

Posted 04-02-2014 at 11:38 PM by Rhea (On the Road with Rhea)

I apologize for the slow updates, but when I was in Arlington last month I dropped my tablet, and then I dropped it again in Austin right before we left to go to Reno. On the second drop it malfunctioned and could not be used anymore.

I will eventually get a laptop or another tablet when I get back on my feet.

We had a mutual falling out on our way back from Reno that had been building up while in Reno.

When we arrived in Austin we said our goodbyes...

Paid our entries for Reno 8 ball 9 ball and ten ball, our rooms are taken care of, now we just split the gasoline, can't wait to see my buddies there!

Kim is playing great she will do well. I played pretty good today, finally got in a game with Jerry at Skinny Bobs, bet my own cash and won $800 today.

Tomorrow I'm getting staked to play him $1000 sets for seven hours, should be a tough game but a good score before Reno.

For those who were following my previous thread about the adventures I have had after leaving Wisconsin and parting with Gene, here is a whole new chapter in my travels.

I have now teamed up with a talented player named Kim. I have known Kim now for 1 year. I remember the first time I met her we played in the OB Cues Tour at Rusty's in Arlington, TX in January of 2013 where she put me out of the main event.

I played Kim again 8 days ago in Houston, TX where she defeated...
