I have played a couple of viking tournys but this will be my first big tourny. My first tourny with a race to 10. Any helpful tips would be greatly appreciated. :)

I heard someone ask Howard Vickery for a tip to beat Tony Ellin. Howard said, "Win the lag and don't miss."
Keith thanks for all the great pics , I haven't seen my old friend Troy in awhile but I do talk to him on the phone about once a month.

It used to be drinking age of 18, 3.2 beer and the Peppermint lounge. It was also a place to buy fireworks.
 
To my knowledge, it's the only city that was picked to have the word "HOLY" in front of it.

"Cow", "Balls", "Moly", "Shit", and "F*#K, don't count since they're not cities. ;)

Joe Brown from Dayton beat Alex. P. in that event a couple of years ago IIRC. I believe Frank Ruby beat Earl there too. So go have some fun.

BTW I beat Joe Brown once. I beat him 1 game in a race to 5 :D . My claim to fame LOL

candyman,

just for the record, I did NOT beat Joe Brown. I beat him 1 game, he beat me 5.

I don't want anybody accusing me of bullshitting the board.

have fun in Toledo.

Toledo is where Johnny Archer broke and ran out 13 racks in a row against Bustamante playing for money about a dozen years ago!

Last year at the Glass City Open, Johnny Archer, who won the event, kept Kid Delicious benched in a match as he broke and ran out for 10 consecutive games. :eek:

One of the nice features about this tournament is that there are designated match times, which allows the players to make the most out of their day. Joe Brown, Keith, a Canadian player named Frank, and I managed to fit in a little R&R at the local racetrack during last year's GCO. I remember the occasion well because while the three of them huddled in a pack honing their expert handicapping skills hoping to snatch a winner, I bet my mother's birthday, a dollar triple box (6 bucks), and won $489 on my first bet! :p

Here's Joe and Keith depicted below. :)
