Before the Germany / Argentina match on Friday night, we managed to get an hour or so on a larger 9 foot table, since there was one free. As to be expected, since Alec is still very much the better player, he beat me 2 games to 1. Although I wasn’t quite as adept on the larger table as he was, I did manage to win the 3rd game with a shot he described as the best he’d ever seen me do and didn’t think he’d ever managed himself:
- White and black at opposite ends of the table length, with black against the cushion
- I designate the hole about a foot away from the white as where I’m attempting the pot
- White travels the entire length of the table, hits black, black travels back the entire length of the table, enters designated hole
- I win. WOOT!
