    Your attitude towards Scotch doubles tournaments

    Good morning, Tomorrow I have a Scotch Doubles tournament paired with a weaker player. I have played a few of those but I'm usually the weaker player paired with a pro or a shortstop.

    Little question about playing the ghost.

    If you get a dry break, do you still take ball in hand and attempt to run out or is it the ghost's turn? Because if its ball in hand with balls down on the break or none...I have beaten the ghost 9-6 even. I don't think I'm gonna be able to do that again for a while. On the other hand, if I...

    Title says it all, Do you go in casual and act like you "don't care'" as if you are just going to practice so you don't get to feel pressure of the event or do you completely immerse your mind in pool for the whole day/week prior to the tournament so you feel and in "pool mode" ? Personally I...
