...but last weekend I achieved one of my long time goals when I finished high enough in the state 8-ball titles to gain automatic selection for the Victorian team this year. I've made the top 20 (the number of people that get to the final playoff for selection) 6 times now, and been first emergency for the team twice. In 1999, I actually got to play because they decided to use an extra player, but I've never before qualified for automatic selection.
Needless to say, I'm thrilled. Its been hard to wipe the grin off my face for a couple of days. The Australian championships are in Mandurah, Western Australia in November this year. I can't wait.
Anyone wanna game for fifty?
