Local Women’s 8-ball Tourney

Krista playing Randi Sue
Had a great time today watching Krista (my better half) play in only her second tourament – a local women’s 8-ball tournament in Valhalla (Kirkland, WA). Krista is currently a 2 in 8-ball so her first match against Mary (a strong 4) was a 2-4 race. She won the first game with some very nifty shot-making and came very close to winning each of the next two games. Ultimately, she fell 1-4 and moved to the loser’s bracket.

On the losers side, she ran into dear friend and very good 8-ball player (SL5) Randi Sue Andrews. Once again, Krista took the first game and was immediately on the hill. However, Randi Sue is a veteran player with many years of tournament experience under her belt so she wasn’t fazed and took the match 1-5.

All in all, a great showing for Krista as she has less than a year of pool experience and had a couple of nice 4 ball runs. Great job, Krista!! You can see many of the photos I took on my Facebook.
