View Full Version : my vegas trip

05-14-2006, 05:17 PM
here I am in Vegas. I am playing in open singles and I have won my first 4 matches + a bye. Not playing the best. The tables are fast. Pockets are reasonable. They break real good. I play again 7:30. My wife is in the same spot in the women open.

I played in 4 minis and won 2. I played in the open minis. Nice that they take out 10 bucks for running the tourney.

Looking forward to the pro event. I have seen some pros. Efren was hanging out in the hard times booth..

there are a lot of vendors about. Joe Salazar has a great selection. I was disappointed there are not more cues here though. Where are cornerstone and cueaddicts? Too bad.

I did win a cue. a joss cue made for the Bca. I think it has a $250 value. thats good as i might have to sell it to make up for my casino losses.

thats all for now. i play at 730 tonight
