Hey everyone, just a few updates of my son Jin for those that may be curious. He has been practicing coming up on 2 years in a couple months. What a journey it's been so far...

Thank you to his sponsors:

Here he was playing SVB, some of you have already viewed it.

He is awesome. Are you a pretty serious player yourself? How early did he start?

I wouldnt consider myself a serious player currently. I used to consider myself decent about 15 years ago lol.

Jin start mid 2017.... I had no idea he was interested until one day and he has been hooked since. Besides school, he lives and breathes pool.

I was just wondering if maybe he’s grown up seeing you play all the time. I guess school has a place in life I hope things work out for him, he’s a talented little guy.

Thanks for the kind words Jeff. I started to play lightly in 2017 after a trip to the Philippines where I got I to my first game in over a decade lol.

One day on our way to Dave n busters I stop to pick up chalk and he saw a tiny cue... I asked if he wanted arcade day or try out pool. We went to play pool and that was it.... he did 20-24 hours a weekend at a pool hall until I got him his own table.

So much fun watching him play with Billy.
The mosconi guys were all class.
I also like how pechauer gets behind alot
of young players.
Thanks for posting these. This is what pool is
all about.

They definitely were.... they could have easily walked off. Even Billy could have played a quick rack and gone about his business.

Pechauer does give so much back to pool and the juniors...

Just make sure he keeps his priorities straight.

Get him out of school and playing pool full time.

As always, it was a real pleasure to see Jin play.

He is improving at a very fast rate. All his and "your" hard works shows in his fundamentals.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!

Rake


I knew a fellow that thought he was a good boxer because he was in a position to befriend a lot of "professional boxers". It cost him azzwhippens till he realized he wasn't what he thought/wished he was.

Do you know anyone like the "wannabe" boxer in the pool world?

He shoots great, another foot on him and he'll be a top regional player. All focus on the table and shots. First game bank to side to get shape on the 8 was an advanced shot, I know people that played for decades that would not have seen that, much less been able to execute it.

He can probably play even with Emily now from the way he ran out on Thorsten. That look on her face was not "what a nice kid" it was "I can't beat him".

What's the advantage to having three feet?

He plays real good. He did not seem to be bothered by all the random activity around the table either!! The last guy that showed up with the hat near the end was kind of odd. I suspect a lot of the posters here would be bothered by that based on a bunch of posts about stuff like that happening to them.

Thanks for that..... We are still working on the mental game very hard which also includes tuning everything else out.

That guy.... not sure exactly who he is but both last year and this year, he was with Emily getting tons of video with his gopro. Not sure where it goes.....
