A Family of Games

By: Don “Cheese” Akerlow

Everett, Washington Once again the Family Game Store is opening its doors in a new and convenient location, the Everett Mall (next to Mervyn’s). This marks the third store that has opened in the local area. “Bringing Families Together … Keeping Families Together” is the motto of the Family Game Store. Owner Gary Zimmerman armed with 45 years in retail management with Gary Zimmerman - Owner Family Game Stores Albertson’s and Radio Shack, the last seven of which he worked in Monroe, opened his first Family Game Store in February 2001. In his own words Gary said, “I wanted to do something to contribute to the community and still use the retail skills I had acquired through the years. Ironically, it was a trip back home that gave me the idea.” That was the beginning, “It started me thinking about how, today, families don’t really do a lot together. Everybody does their own thing instead.” So out of retirement he came. What better way to do it than through GAMES. “I thought, ‘Why not bring back the old-fashioned (A Family of Games continued on page 7)

BREAKTHROUGH A Short Story by: Dean Shane Cassem

About the Author Dean Shane Cassem Born in Charleston, W.Va. to an immigrant father from Lebanon, Dean Shane Cassem picked up his first cue stick at age 15. His father and grandfather before him had Cassem’s restaurant in Kanawha City, a suburb of Charleston, which is the state capitol of West Virginia. From age 15 to age 20, except for a short stint in Viet Namn, Shane hardly put his cue down and by age 20, had placed second in the annual Virginia straight pool tourney (1966). In his twenties, his game went stale from staying in the bars and out of the rooms where stiffer competition would have honed his game. His stroke subsided completely until his mid thirties when he resurrected his game and won the Coors statewide Texas 8-ball Championship in Houston in 1981. Directing his energies to a new wife, his church, and an interior wall and floor-covering business in the mid to late 80’s, his game went dormant again until he sold his business and returned to school. At age 48, he completed his undergraduate work in theology, and earned Master’s degrees in Marriage & Family Counseling and Christian Education. During that time, he developed his writing skills and has since become the most prolific writer of pocket billiard fiction in America. Shane has five Carter Keating novels nearly ready for publication: Breakthrough, Resurrection, Backrooms, Twist of Fate and Trade-off. Readers will see Twist of Fate in the bookstores by November 2002. In addition, he has recently created two new characters; Skinny Malone and Kelsey Maynard. Currently, Shane also has a Marriage and Family Counseling practice. He and Mary, his wife of fifteen years, live in Fort Worth, the setting for his ongoing Carter Keating Series. Shane has one daughter, Vickie Linn, a son-n-law, Brian, and a precious granddaughter, Shelbie Linn. You may visit Shane’s web sites at; www.carterkeatingnovels.com or creativecounselingconcepts.com

Part 1

WE WERE IN WILLIE’S POOL PARLOR ACROSS THE street from the glass factory along the ship channel close to Houston. Dave Wakefield and I sat in vinyl-padded chrome armchairs in front of a four and a half by nine-foot pool table cradled under a six-foot overhead light. The clacking sounds of colorful, colliding pool balls mixed with a chattering crowd to mute any semblance of quietude. Fifteen other tables fronted us in the smoke-filled room as Jimmy, ‘the Stick’, Gadwell studied his next shot. “Guy’s absolutely incredible!” I muttered reverently, and watched as opaque wisps of cigarette and cigar smoke snaked up to the muted ceiling lights and created an ambiance I had never seen before. The language, the people and the place were all new to me. “Ain’t you the smart one,” Wakefield growled. His thick glasses bubbled his eyes to twice their size on his pale, skinny pocked-marked face. Sniffing like a guy with a bad case of allergies, he lifted his head back and scooted his glasses up his nose and said, “the man plays pool like Tiger Woods plays golf; hits the same stroke, the same shot every time. Never misses.” Pause. “Not much, anyway.” “The two of ya play much?” I asked. About six feet tall with frail shoulders over a lean, bony body, Dave Wakefield was only twenty-one, but looked older. A week earlier, I’d met him while fishing on a river bank a few blocks away. He had recognized me from some of the local junior high sports events. “Lots of times, Carter,’ he scoffed. “After all, he gives me the seven and eight.” “Seven and eight?” Looking at me cross-eyed like I’d failed to recite my ABC’s properly, he said, “he can only make the nine ball to win, doofus. Me, I can win by making the seven, eight, or nine.” I gulped as my eyes widened. “You have three chances to win!” “Yep.” he snarled, as his eyes fixed hard on Gadwell’s every move. “And he still wins?” I said ignorantly. “Ya been watchin’. Whadaya’ think?” “God.” “Not really, but he’s good.” I straightened up in my chair, clasped my hands with my elbows on the armchair and stuttered, “H-h-how good is he, Dave?” Wakefield sighed, then rolled his eyes reflectively and replied. “He ‘n Dunbaum from downtown, n’ Bud Hegis in Dallas three of the best in the east, some of the best in the country.” My eyes globalized, my mouth opened wide. “Yep.” Wakefield added, looking around the crowded room, “nobody here can touch’im, other than Cigar and the Thin Man, n’ it’s still not really a match if they play for a while.” Cigar Kartier and Russell, the ‘Thin Man’, Case, both in their late forties, were playing on table eight three rows over. An hour before, I’d watched in awe as they consistently ran the table every time they had a good shot.

Gadwell eyed his next shot. He had a straight-in shot on the two the length of the table after making four balls on the break. The cue ball stood five inches off the back rail, six feet away from the two, which was about a foot and a half from the far corner pocket. Bumped cataclysmically by Gadwell’s thunderous break, the nine ball had popped out of the rack and swooped down the table until it eventually sat on the lip of the lower corner pocket. Another full rotation and it would have gone in the hole. The four, six, and eight remained, and oddly enough were stacked together in a tight cluster in the center of the table. Wakefield chuckled confidently, “Ain’t no way out for him on this one,” he muttered. “It’s almost impossible to make the two and break out the cluster.” He shifted his eyes to me, then leaned back in his chair and whispered in my ear. “Making the two the length of the table off the rail’s tough enough.” His lip turned up greedily as he added, “his only option will be to play safe and leave me at least a shot on the nine on a carom.” I pursed my lips then said, “Not even the Stick can get out of this, huh?” “Nope,” Wakefield replied, “no matter what he does I’ll have a shot at the nine even if it’s a combination or a billiard shot.” Gadwell, tall and thin as a pine tree at about six three and oneseventy, studied the shot with a steely calm demeanor. Like an eagle scanning for prey, he leaned over the table and eyed the shot circumspectly. Then, squatting down, he squinted at the two like a carpenter eyeing his finished work. Still not through he rose up and danced around the table and leaned in and looked at the cluster again. Finally, frowning a Clint Eastwood-like frown, he leaned back with the cue and seemingly agonized over the shot. Suddenly he nodded slowly almost as if he had finally pictured the shot perfectly in his mind. Then, after exhaling a deep volume of air he relaxed his shoulders and went back to the cue ball. Setting himself squarely, he confidently jacked his stick and stroked the cue ball so that the cue stick drove down low to the base of the ball. Smiling cockily so that he showed a missing front tooth, he blurted out almost like Babe Ruth calling his home run shot, “nine in the corner on the draw!” (continued on page 19)

Montel Wins Garden City Open By: Pete “Cue Ball” Quande

June 15-16, 2002 Missoula, MT Edwin Montel of Calgary, Alberta put his world class nine ball skills on display June 15th and 16th at Cue Ball’s Billiards in Missoula, Montana. Edwin hardly seemed to work up a sweat as he effortlessly blew through a field of 31 players from Canada, Idaho, Washington and Montana. The finals weren’t without a good deal of excitement, however, and all of us sweaters were treated to some exciting matches. Dave Williams of Brewster, Washington, defeated Nick Kruger of Calgary 9-8 to earn a shot at the drivers seat. Nick went over to the losers side of the bracket to face Jeff Boucher of Helena, Montana. This match was also a proverbial “sweaters delight” with Nick prevailing 9-8. Nick has a rematch with Dave Williams, who was defeated 9-3 by Montel for the drivers seat. Once again Edwin Montel Kruger and Williams go hill-hill but this time Williams comes out on the short end of the stick, losing 9-8 to Kruger. So Nick and Edwin square off for the title and Edwin put on a show for us all – winning 9-3 and taking most of the “cheese” back to Calgary. Edwin is a real treat to watch and his greatness at billiards is only surpassed by his pleasant, down-to-earth demeanor. The entire field displayed great sportsmanship and was a fun weekend for all. We will shim and balance all of our tables and replace the bee’s wax with putty. Look for that and new Simonis 860 for the 24th Annual Montana State 9-Ball Open Championship in October.

games my generation grew up on?’” All of us love to play games, all types of games, and the Family Game Store carries over 530 games for the whole family. Games as simple as Yahtzee to full size billiard tables. “We have something for everyone, but the goal is that these games are games you play with others, not individually.” Gary doesn’t stock the video-technology/computer games but rather games that can involve the whole family. “Moms and grandmothers come in and buy the games because they remember playing them as kids” he said. “And they want to play something with their kids and grandkids that they can win at, at least for the first few rounds.” Board games like Monopoly, Boggle, Operation and Clue along with newer games such as Balderdash, Powderpuff Girls and Cranium. The Family Game Store also carries a full line of tables and equipment for air hockey, bumper-pool, ping pong, foosball, shuffleboard and billiards. There are checkers and chess sets, darts, dart boards and billiard cues over 500 in stock! Are you looking to convert your spare room into a game room? This is the place to shop.

Four Balls in One Stroke Here is a set up trick shot that is not very difficult. It will test your draw stroke. This shot is the easiest one that is in the Draw Discipline of the Professional Artistic Pool Program. Set up object balls and cue ball as shown in the diagram. Hit the cue ball well below center with a moderate draw stroke. Aim to hit object ball A almost full so that the cue ball will draw back and pocket object ball B in front of the corner pocket. Object ball C will go in the side pocket and object balls A and D will go into their respective corner pockets. If ball D hits to the left of the intended pocket, adjust for the throw by aiming the centers of object balls A and D to the right. With a little practice you will be making this shot on a regular basis.

In Memory of ... Dan Schofield Sr.

In Memory Of ... Johnny Braswell Northwest Player Lost To Cancer By: Clay Skidmore, McQ’s Billiards

May 29, 2002 Today started just like any other day. The skies were partly cloudy and there was just a hint of rain. I walked in the poolroom around 4:00pm to play my weekly game of straight pool, but there was something different. I just didn’t feel right, in fact, I can never remember when there was a time that I quit in the middle of a set, except today was that day. As the evening moved forward the poolroom stayed fairly quiet. In fact it was a little too quiet since Wednesday is half price pool night and it is usually pretty busy. As the night moved closer to closing time I received a phone call from Bob Manchester. As I answered the phone, it took a few seconds for him to respond. I could sense a shaky tone in his voice. His message was clear and it struck me in the heart. “Clay, Johnny Braswell died tonight. I don’t have a date on the funeral but I will let you know.” I said, “Thanks for the call I’ll let the boys know.” As I walked around the poolroom to tell the players, it became harder and harder to do, with each person I approached. For those of you that didn’t know Johnny, he was the nicest man you would ever meet. On the pool table he was the ultimate gentleman. He was also a solid competitor and a great sportsman. He fought his cancer for over a 10 year period and on May 29th he lost that fight. Johnny is a man that will be greatly missed. My staff and myself want to express our condolences to the Braswell family. His list of friends is long and I’m sure there won’t be a day that goes by that we don’t think of him. Thank you Johnny for being our customer, but most of all thank you for being our friend. You will be missed. OTB

I met Danny Schofield when he was doing what he loved second best, working on pool cues at a tournament. I showed him a pool glove I had made and we became friends instantly. He wore the glove I made just for him until it had more holes than material left. Danny told me it was the most comfortable glove he ever wore. I soon learned that his first love was playing pool! Anyone who knew him knew why. He was an excellent player. Even when his health was failing, you had to watch out, he was not an easy mark. He made the game look easy. Danny taught me so much about the game of pool. He was a kind teacher, and a terrific partner and always very patient. He was one of the best sportsmen I have ever known. He was always first to tell you, Great shot, nice leave, good game! Danny taught me how to read a table, that alone improved my game more than I could ever imagine. I didn’t know Danny very long. I wish it could have been longer. The pool world lost a great fan, sportsman and teacher. I would like to think that when Danny went to heaven, he met the champs like, Minnesota Fats and Willie Mosconi. And I am sure he said, ?Rack um up!? Break and run Danny! We will all miss you! - Renee‘ Howard Different places and different faces coming together with a common bond. Sharing that special feeling , playing the game of which we’re so fond. Some people are kinda special, in a certain mystical way. There’s a flame that burns inside them, you can tell by the way they play. The game called pool may touch your soul and you strive to give it a name. You may just become the chosen, the keeper of the flame. So you take the flame and pass it on cause its part of the master plan, to share and care for others, Dan Schofield was such a man. Often he would joust upon the green field treating victors and vanquished the same, the tourney is over and the field is now dark, another day in another place he will rejoin the game. - Ken Goodwin

My special memory of Grandpa is he really liked to play pool. For Christmas he gave me a pool case. I got a red one, Amber, my stepsister, got a blue one. Well, a couple of days later we played pool, and I carried it everywhere. - With love, Alex Dan Sr. had a kind and caring soul, he lived for pool and his grandchildren, I think that’s what kept him going so long. His only problem in life was that he couldn’t say no to anyone. Having money and material possessions didn’t mean anything to Dan, giving of himself to other people was what was important to him. He did more for pool in our area than anyone, and he touched everyone’s heart that he came in contact with. He was loved by all, and he will surely be missed by all. - Bob and Jackie

Hot dog, anyone? Perhaps some ice cold watermelon? Day off work, for sure. Boatride or fishing? Maybe camping; maybe golf, horseshoes or tennis. Maybe just home and fun activities with the family. Wait! – Hold real still and listen really hard… deep beneath the clamor of our rushing to recreate… ooh, can’t quite catch it… THERE it is…! Drumbeats, heartbeats. Cries – victory or death? Both. So hard to hear them. Insulated by obtuse blindness, we happily partake of the fruits, trampling on the dust of the providers. But, that isn’t fair, is it? After all, once a year, we do wave the flag around and proclaim our freedom loudly and spectacularly with thousands of dollars worth of fireworks. Can YOU see the rocket’s red glare within those wonderful explosions of sparkles? Do you hear the cannons within the noisemaker booms? Do you weep when you hear a young person sing our National Anthem? Hopefully, we thank all those who have given everything from mind to limb to life each time we jump in our car to run off to a tournament; or when we dash to the airport for a trip across country, bounded only by time and financial constraints instead of guards and checkpoints. Or when we gather freely in large groups for tournaments? Well, maybe we don’t remember to thank them. But we can feel them crowding around us when the flag is raised. There is probably not a single true American who could not see them among the rescue crews in New York. I was recently privileged to attend a program honoring former POW’s. Those ex-POW’s in attendance fought in WWII. Standing with those men who live daily with their sacrifice was a tremendously humbling honor I cannot begin to describe. The Pledge of Allegiance became a proclamation of pride, and acknowledgement of an entire ethos, not just a rote recitation of something ingrained as a child. The Star Spangled Banner was led acapella by a 16-yr old Eagle Scout – the contrast between his youth and their 60 years of post-incarceration was time-lapse life. His beautiful soaring young voice pulled me into bustling recruitment centers filled with rushing, vibrant young men ready to go to war. His youth proclaimed continuity and each of those men who gave so much stood a little taller. In those moments I was filled with an encompassing love for the incredible human spirit manifest in each of those courageous men. Recreate this holiday with joy and celebrate the spirit of all those over the last 200+ years who have given us our lives, and silently sing them thanks.

For the shark in all of us

book reviews The Pool Hustler’s Handbook

The Green Felt Jungle, The Dark Side of Pool By Gerald Huber This is a passionate story of the billiard world. Once you start reading, you don’t want to put it down. If you do, you can’t wait to get back to it. The book will cast it’s spell on you from the very first chapter. A true story of the life of Gerald Huber, one is amazed that the pool shark and the businessman co-exist in one. After reading this book it is easy to see how the lessons learned in the pool hall can apply to all that life deals you. Even though Huber becomes a hustler, he is a man of principle and fairness. A rare quality in a somewhat ruthless character, where a pool game means everything and winning is the only thing.

What are the problems for these table configurations?

Problem:

The problem with this table configuration is the two clusters consisting of the 4- and 6-ball and the 7- and 8-ball.

Commentary:

The 4-6 cluster can easily be broken up while shooting the 1-ball. The 7-8 cluster is a much bigger problem because there are no other balls in the vicinity that can be shot while breaking them up. The best chance for a run is to shoot hard when breaking up the 4-6 cluster hoping that one of the balls will go to the other end of the table so that it can be used to break up the 7-9 cluster. If that doesn’t work, try to get shape on the 3-9 combination while shooting the 2-ball. Another solution is to go directly from the 1-ball to the 2-ball to the 3-9 combination without breaking up the 4-6 cluster. That way, even if you miss the 9-ball combination your opponent will still have two difficult clusters to deal with. If you get stuck having to shoot at the 7-ball don’t despair, there is a reasonably good safety possibility. Try to get the cue ball somewhere in the vicinity of the 5-ball. Shoot the 7-ball into the end rail toward diamond “Y.” The 7-ball will rebound into the 8-ball and stop; the cue ball will go two rails to the other end of the table.

Problem: This table has a variety of problems. The cue bail has to be

moved the length of the table in going from the 1-ball to the 2-ball. The 4and 8-ball are clustered and the 5- and 7-ball are on the side rail near the side pocket. And there is yet another problem; the 3-ball is in the most difficult position that any ball can be in (by the rail adjacent to the side pocket).

Commentary:

The 4-8 cluster can be nudged with the cue ball after making the 1ball. The fact that the 5- and 7-ball are not consecutive balls makes them a little easier but still difficult. The tighter the comer pockets, the more difficult they are to run down the rail. If the comer pockets are real tight consideration should be given to banking one or both of them into side pocket “S.” The 3-ball is a serious problem. It would be difficult to make it into pocket “N,” or even bank it into pocket “J” (because the cue ball will scratch in pocket “S”). Shooting it into pocket “W” is difficult because it would have to pass the jaws of pocket “S.” Because of all the problems it might be best to shoot the 1-ball and get position for a carom shot off the 2-ball into the 9-ball.

Problem: The balls are spread apart in what looks to be an easy table.

Problem: The problem with this table configuration is that consecutive

Commentary: There are no easy solutions here. The best thing to do is

Commentary: The 1- and 2-ball can be pocketed fairly easy. In making

balls are positioned on the same rail. It would be difficult to shoot the 3ball and get back to that rail for a good shot at the 4-ball. The same problem exists for the 7- and 8-ball.

the 2-ball the cue ball should be positioned for a bank shot at the 3-ball into pocket “S.” That should solve the 2-3 problem. When pocketing the 7-ball, less than perfect shape can be accepted on the 8-ball because getting shape on the 9-ball should be easy (no english is required in shooting the 8-ball therefore, it can be hit more accurately).

Who the hell is Lance Mcgill? And who cares? It’s 1993 and I’m in a pool hall called Chalk and Roll learning my new past time pocket billiards or pool. Well, like all pool halls there are tons of experts and very few, good players. Being a student of the martial arts I have learned that there is no bad information, there is only information. We choose the information we want to keep and retain and we discard what we do not want. This system seems endless when you are working with thousands of self-claimed experts. So you have to start deciding who knows what they’re talking about. This is when I chose to listen to tournament champions like Brad Gowin and Glen Atwell to develop my fundamentals. To this day I continue to mock their behaviors and techniques at the table. I then started to practice countless hours shooting in balls, playing with English and watching tournament players. I became a pool hall junkie, I even took a job at Chalk and Roll so I could receive free time. This is when I met him, an awesome presence with a sincere friendly certainty, Lance Mcgill.

Who was this guy? He checked out them, I hope I don’t bore you. some balls for himself and began Now that you know me, who are banking, and I mean banking,! one you? My name is Lance and I love rail, two rails, three rails you name pool. That’s it! I said, “Are you a it. It was amazing, trust me on being road player? A trick shot artist? A a real player when I say amazing! I ball banger? What are you?” “Yes approached him I have done and do after watching for those things” This some time and man speaks in began a riddles I thought, conversation, and like many Masters this is when I knew I I have met, but is ran into something he a master of this special. He game of pool? reminded me of a Well that was in Professor of Martial 1993 and many Arts I once met in an distractions kept elevator, his me from finding presence at that out. These Paul Marquez moment still distractions were humbles me and yet gives me great things like fighting on an Oregon honor because he recognized me Black Belt team, opening an as a real Martial Artist during an operating a martial arts school, and elevator ride. This Lance made me on top of that practicing and feel special, his skill at the table becoming the player that I am was so beyond anyone I have ever today. That by know way means seen yet his interest was in what I that I am a champion but I definitely was about first then we could talk can hold my own. It’s been nine about him. His listening skills were years since I have first met Lance tremendous and made me feel and my information today has been good. These things are important tailored. I know what it takes to win to me and that is why I mention ,I know the difference between a

real player and a trick shot artist, and I can recognize if someone has true understanding of the game. I know now what I had seen in 1993 and what I have seen recently is the most awesome demonstration of pool brilliance and skill ever! Yes ever! A whole new view and understanding to the game I have not touched nor have I seen anyone dare try. Lance makes pool what it should be, and amazing adventure of different options and viewpoints. But first and foremost you have fun, true fun. I know what you players are thinking because I am just like you. Can he run out? YES! Can he play safe? YES! Can he play under the heat? YES! Can he run a hundred balls? YES! The main reason I chose to write this is because everybody has so many opinions and yet never find out for themselves. I have and I am now a student . Thank you Lance for helping me love pool again. This is for you even if you really don’t care. I do and I want them to know. Peace , Paul Marquez

Northwest Women’s Pool Association’s (NWPA) third tour stop June 22-23, 2002 in Everett, WA. The event was hosted by Shotze’s Rack N Roll, whose fine food, friendly hospitality and gracious $750 added prize purse, was appreciated by all. The question on everyone’s mind was who, in such a large and competitive field of play, would claim the stop as champion. Another question on Tournament Director Ted Martha Hartsell Woodward’s mind, was how to keep the 52 players’ matches running smoothly so as to finish play on time each day. A volunteer director over the NWPA’s first two events, Ted ran this stop as the newly appointed Tournament Director for the remainder of the season and beyond. With his voluminous experience and skills in managing tournaments, the NWPA’s third and largest attended stop to date ran without a hitch. Lending to his merit was his assistant Dan Coffman who continues to volunteer his time to the NWPA. The large field of players made for a most interesting event as well as the onsite television news coverage from KIRO 7 and KOMO 4. There were players coming from as far as Idaho and Canada; and one visiting player from Wisconsin. There were seasoned veterans, tour regulars, fresh new talent and even a young prodigy (Allie Shaffer of Seattle, WA) and retired pro-tour member Kerry Impson (back from maternity leave). This bevy of talent aside, the battle to the top of the heap Cindy Doty ended Sunday evening, when Kimberly Kirk of Tacoma, WA was declared the champion of the event and victor of the $651 spoils. When Kimberly Kirk arrived at the start of the tournament, she arrived with a plan to become tour stop champion. With sharp precision, her plan was masterfully executed both days, much to the dismay of her opponents. New to the tour, but certainly not to the tournament scene in the Pacific Northwest, this seasoned player swept the winner’s side of the board breezing past Linda Carter (7-2), Carol Mellors (7-3), Kim Gates (7-4), and Martha Hartsell (7-4). She maintained her focus to claim wins in close matches against Mary Olson (7-6) and Brooke Demke (7-6). Moving into the finals undefeated, she was then faced with the challenge of Martha Hartsell who had a score to settle from her earlier loss to Kimberly. A top player from Oregon, Martha Hartsell maintained a strong presence on the winner’s board. Her steady and skilled play led her to wins over Jo Woodward (7-5), Linda Silvas (7-6), Becky Rowell (7-3), Elizabeth Jensen (7-5), and young prodigy Allie Shaffer (7-5) before losing to Kimberly Kirk. She then lay in wait for her quarterfinal match with Cindy Doty. This was to be a tough match as both opponents are considered among the best players for their respective states. This equal match of experience and skill was apparent in their set where they traded games, win-for-win. After tying up at 3-3, Martha shifted into overdrive, plowing ahead to a 5-3 win over Cindy. Her attention was then set on the finals, where she intended to even the score against Kimberly Kirk. For the finals, Kimberly was hoping for a single race to 7 to maintain her place as the undefeated tournament champion. However, Martha had hopes of not repeating results from her last encounter with Kimberly. With tremendous focus and a strong will to win, Martha toppled Kimberly in their first set with a 7-3 victory. Despite the amazing setback, Kimberly was not willing to let the loss throw her concentration. Indeed, the loss seemed only to fuel Kimberly’s determination and sharpen her focus as she started the second race to 5 with a fierce 4-0 lead. At the 3-0 mark of the set, Martha had joked with Kimberly that she was known as “The Comeback Queen” in her hometown. Kimberly’s response of “Bring it on”, seemed an omen. Just when it appeared the match would be won, Martha lived up to her reputation by putting herself on the (Kirk Wins continued on page 20)

“Geez,” Wakefield growled, “he’s trying to make the two then draw the cue ball back the length of the table into the nine in the corner.” “Uh huh,” I said, like I really understood what he’d said. When Gadwell snapped his cue downward and followed through, his wrist flicked smoothly and jammed the stick deftly into the cue ball. Jumping slightly, it shot straight for the two. Upon impact, the two darted into the upper corner while the cue ball paused, then like a shopper deciding which store to go in, made up its mind and finally started a casual crawl back toward Gadwell. “Grow legs, Sugar,” Gadwell urged, then leaned back as if to pull the cue ball along with him. Squatting down, he pulled his tightly clenched, long fingered fist toward himself as if to help the cue ball even more. “Come on, Baby!” he begged. The cue ball headed slowly toward the nine like it had romantic eyes for it, then at the last roll it nudged the nine just enough and tapped it softly into the corner pocket. “My God,” I gawked. “Chriminy,” Wakefield snapped angrily, then slammed the butt of his stick on the floor and disgustedly flipped back his head. His unruly light hair followed. Gadwell’s head jerked up victoriously. A big hyena-type grin washed across his face. Thoroughly pleased with the result, he did a two step jig then turned toward Wakefield and said sarcastically, “just lucky I guess.” Wakefield’s face suddenly washed red, his eyes filled with rage. He popped up from his seat like a rabid dog, looked at Gadwell, pulled out a ten spot from his pocket and slammed it angrily on the table. “Don’t you ever miss?” he lamented. Then, like a husband who’d decided to leave an argument he couldn’t win, he quickly broke down his cue at the joints and stomped across the room to where Cigar and the Thin Man were playing nine ball. He grabbed a chair, jerked it around and sat down. With his head down, his eyes bored a moping, raging hole through the hardwood planked floor. Gadwell smiled devilishly, then simply shrugged nonchalantly as he bent over the table and picked up the ten spot. Then he started fishing the balls out of the leather pockets. When all the balls were on the table, he pursed his lips musingly for a moment then picked up the cue ball and turned his wrist and snapped it up in the air with his thumb and forefinger. Floating in the air like a top it hit the table and bounced twice, then grabbed the felt and did a reverse spin that drove it down the table. The chicanery was tantamount to Meadowlark Lemon spinning a basketball on his finger for several minutes. Gadwell, apparently satisfied with the result, broke down his stick and slipped it carefully into his leather case. Exhaling a large breath, he smirked to himself and then suddenly turned and faced me. “Mind if I join ya’, kid?” He said automatically. His tense green eyes stretched tight. My face flushed full, my eyes grew big as saucers. I raised my six foot frame up in my chair and then stammered, “Sure, Stick.” He sat down. I groped for something to say. “Wow, Stick, that was something. How long you been playing’?” I asked, then bit the side of my jaw, and waited. At fifteen and very impressionable, I might as well have been sitting next to Mark McGwire. Part II Next Month in the August Issue OTB

Bustamante Again June 6-11, 2002 - Makati Coliseum, Manila The Motolite World 9-Ball Challenge, saw Corey Deuel and Francisco Bustamante as the final contestants. Both Deuel and Bustamante had each won an IBC event this year and the match up proved to be a thriller. The final match was a race to 13. Bustamante came out on top with a 138 victory over Corey. The final outcome does not reflect the problems that Corey faced with his game. At one point in the match, Bustamante had a 9-1 lead and things didn’t look good for the young American. But he fought back to make the score 11-8. The next game put Bustamante on the hill at 12-8, Corey unable to pocket anything on his break conceded the game. Bustamante wins $15,000 for first, while Corey walked away with $10,000. Efren Reyes defeated Kunihiko Takahashi for third place and $7,500 while Takahashi won $5,000 for fourth.

The Art of the Choke

Not all of us have graced the winner’s circle, nor have all of us enjoyed the accomplishment of achieving our ultimate goal. There is one thing that we all have in common though…. We have all missed shots we should have made. We have all experience the “shot that got away.“ Read through this example, a scenario we have all been through. We are playing the local hot shot. We have lost to him 9 weeks in a row, and the weeks we haven’t lost to him we’ve stayed home in fear of the usual outcome. This week is going to be different. We’ve kept up with him and met him at the hill. You run the rack down to the eight ball. You see that you have two dead easy shots to make and you will win the match. You see what you need to do on the 8 ball and bend over to shoot the shot. You have wanted to beat this guy for a long time and now you have your chance! You bend over and address the cue ball, and then something happens. You can hear your heart beating in you ears. You feel your chest pounding. You look from the cue ball to the eight ball, and it now looks as if it is fifty yards away. The pocket has shrunk, and your shooting arm starts to shake and quiver. You abbreviate your pre-shot routine and quickly send the cue ball in the direction of the eight ball. You stand up quickly and watch as the cue seems to develop a mind of it’s own. The cue ball contacts the eight ball and sends it just wide of the corner pocket. The eight ball travels up table and sits about four inches from the top corner pocket. Ray Charles can handle this out. You sit down and experience a myriad of emotions. You say horrible things to yourself. You sit in the chair and beat yourself up as your opponent shoots his way to victory. You shake his hand, unscrew your cue and start to give yourself what is commonly known as a mental battering. “I shoulda done this…” “I coulda done that…” “I woulda if I coulda…” “Ooooh why I oughtta…” That gets us nowhere, and in fact, increases the odds of it happening again. What happened? You choked. Happens to everybody. Grill Archer or Reyes long enough and they’ll admit to having it happen to them as well. Choking is part of our development. If we don’t experience it from time to time, we are not human. What causes it? A majority of things. Usually choking is caused by what is known as negative internal immersion. This is usually caused when you lose your temper, but it is also caused when you are over stimulated by the surroundings or the situation. When you are in dead stroke, everything is working out for you. The balls are dropping and you are getting the cue ball to what you

want it to. Everything is going according to plan and you tell yourself that you can continue on autopilot, or unconsciously. Choking occurs when you become internally immersed in task-irrelevant issues, or cues. Internal immersion is not always negative, and external immersion is not always positive. It depends on whether the issues or cues you are focusing on are task relevant or not. Understand that when you miss shots or miss position, it is essential that you keep your focus external, there fore avoiding the mental battering. If you lose your temper due to a foul, something your opponent says, etc, it would be wise to shift you focus internally. Just as “playing in the zone” is an altered state of consciousness, so is choking! When we choke, we lose control of our thoughts, our behavior and the whole situation. Choking occurs when we become so focused on internal cues (thoughts and feelings) that you cannot attend to external task-relevant cues. Many of us become more focused on the outcome rather than the process. We need to focus on what we should be doing as opposed to focusing on what we shouldn’t be doing. Direct your attention towards positive cues such as “follow through”, “Focus”, “Breathe”, and “Smooth.” You direct yourself towards the positive without arguing with yourself about the mistakes you’ve made. Make sure your goals are reasonable. The more pressure you place on yourself the more negative interference you can expect. If your goal is to beat this guy next week, ensure that you set sub-goals leading up to the match. You might have to get to finals to beat this guy next week. Make sure you get there. If you focus only on beating one opponent, you will find it hard to get your motivation up during other matches. This can be avoided by having a coach or a mentor to assist you and remind you to remain focused on your newly established goals. By staying focused on the task at hand and not the outcome, you relieve yourself of the pressure associated with thoughts of a negative outcome. When you are able to do this, winning will take care of itself. Remember that every time you take a shot, you run the risk of having things go well. Realize that every so often we are going to be placed in situations that will make us nervous. The way we process the stimulation will determine the outcome. The next time you are in a tough match or faced with a tough shot, remind yourself that matches are won one shot at a time, and one thought at a time. We don’t want to shoot bad shots, and we definitely don’t want to think bad thoughts. It not so much the choking that we need to control, but the factors that lead to it. Above all else, always give yourself the chance to win!!!

loved every minute of it. The ageless Parica, whose skills never seem to diminish, toyed with each of his seven opponents on his way to the One Pocket crown. He never worked up a sweat, losing only two games in the entire tournament. Falling in order were Mike Mares 3-1, Calvin Keys 3-0, Jeff Heath 3-0, Rafael Martinez 3-0, Mark Haddad 3-0, Kim Davenport 3-0, and finally Amar Kang 4-1. One more title to add to his hall of fame credentials.

Hawaii’s favorite son, Rodney Morris, destroyed the Nine Ball field in a similar fashion. Only it took him eight matches to reach the winner’s circle. In order the casualties were John Lalo 9-3, Steve Lesur 9-2, Chris MacDonald 9-3, Jose Parica 9-3, Santos Sambajon 9-6, Mark Haddad 9-4, Rafael Martinez 9-2 and then 11-6 in the overall final. The only relatively close match was with “Mighty Mouse” Santos, who closed to 7-6 before Rodney shut the door with a two and out run. In the finals with Rodney on cruise control (something to behold) and a 10-3 lead, he missed his first ball and somehow Rafael put together three racks. Too little, too late and Rodney cleaned up the last rack when Rafael scratched on the break. Rafael Martinez It’s amazing to this observer that players with Rodney’s level of talent are not invited to the World Championships in Wales, not to mention that Jose and Rafael were not invited either. Something is wrong with the selection process when three of the greatest players on the planet are left out. Another wonderful week in Sacramento at Hard Times, one of America’s greatest pool rooms. The players love playing in the private tournament room with the eight Gold Crown IV’s set up by Ernesto Dominguez. And the pool fans have tiered and cushioned seating for their viewing pleasure. It doesn’t get much better than this.

Aim: from Jack Koehler’s Cue-ball aim accuracy – There is nothing as basic in pool as being able to make the cue ball go in the direction you want it to go. Knowing where you want to hit the object ball is critical but it doesn’t help unless you can deliver the cue ball to that point. All the knowledge in the world won’t do any good if your cue-ball aim accuracy is lacking. The diagram shows a drill for practicing cue-ball accuracy. Place the cue ball directly on the head string one diamond from the side

rail as indicated by position A. Place a target ball (1-ball) on the rail at the opposite end of the head string. Shoot for the center of the target ball so that the cue-ball rebounds directly back along its original path. Any cueball error will be magnified because of the round surface of the target. This drill can

Upscale Nine-Ball book be made a little more difficult by placing the cue ball on the rail thus requiring a rail bridge. To further increase difficulty, set up the same shot using the length of the table as shown by cue-ball position B with the target ball (2-ball) on the foot rail. Some bottom English must be used in order to

make the cue-ball rebound all the way back to the head rail. This is because the target ball does not stop the forward rotation of the cue ball as the cushion would; therefore, roll is acting in opposition to its rebound direction.
