The sine-curve billiards rollercoaster hasn’t come to a complete stop yet, but I’m raising the safety bar and jumping the f#ck out anyway.

About two months ago, I mapped out a tentative, but incredibly exciting, schedule of pool tournments I wanted to play in. If everything worked out according to plan, I would have a tournament every weekend for twelve weekends in a row (some weekends had two tournaments and I would have to — the horror! — choose one). These weren’t your weeknight $10 handicap deals — these were special/major events, with either money or glory added.
