El Maestro Marathon

On Saturday,
El Maestro gave me his undivided attention
during an 8 hour marathon of pool.

We played some 8 ball,
then some sets of the Triple Play Masters format
(race to 7, 8 games of 9-ball and 5 games of 8-ball).
This is what they play at the US Amateur Championship.
That's one of my goals.

The opportunity to achieve this goal
will be here in 2 months and 5 days.

This means that my preparations will change,
and intensify.

It has been a while since I've played 9 ball.
It was interesting becoming re-acquainted with
the differences in 8 and 9 ball,
the pace and strategy.
