It's that time again! The annual US Amateur Championship preliminary event to see who goes on to Strokers in Florida (great pool hall!) in November. We've got 39 men (3 move on) and 10 women (1 moves on) here at Edgie's in Milpitas. 
As my friends, family and those who regularly follow me know, I have been the runner up so many times in this event - 7 or 8 times maybe - I've blocked it out 🙃 
You know the story of the time I finally qualified in 2014, only to have mechanical issues on my departing flight from Oakland cause me to miss my connection, ultimately resulting in my bags, including my cues, not making it to Florida. I arrived so late - I picked up my rental car at 1am -  and had to get to a 24 hour Walmart to get slacks and a dress shirt (dress code strictly enforced for a tournament like this), and even socks and underwear. The next flight that would hopefully have my bags on it would not come until the next day 😞 I had a 9am match. So, I played with cues I borrowed from the pool hall, wearing stiff and itchy brand new clothes after getting about 2 hours of good sleep. 
I've been asked so many times why I keep playing in this tournament. I haven't even been an #APA league player since leaving Cincinnati in 2011. The answer is simple. Redemption. And maybe closure. I know that I can make it to Florida. And I feel like, maybe if I make it there, I can close this chapter of my pool career, so to speak. 
Here's to a long day of pool... Let's see what I can do! 👍🏼🤓🎱🏆 @edgiesbilliards @poolplayers @strokers_palm_harbor #usam #tourneytime #poollife #amateur #championship #letsplay #pool #billiards #8ball #9ball #goals #redemption #icandoit #closure #billiardsprofessor #iteachpool #askthebilliardsprofessor

Winners are not afraid of losing. But winners are. Failure is part of the process of success. People who avoid failure also avoid success. ------ Robert Kiyosaki
