The Action Report, started by Justin Collett and Chad “BigNasty” Pollman (RIP), shuttered its cameras and doors after TAR39 this past weekend. They were the leaders in streaming high-quality, high-dollar one-on-one matches between elite players. I was very fortunate to have witnessed many of those matches in person and because of the access I was granted, many of you got to tag along as well.

Thanks all you dudes and dudettes of TAR.

It was a helluva ride.


I have so much stuff featuring TAR. Here’s a list for y’all to peruse in chronological order. These are not the only posts I have on TAR, but they are the ones where photographs are present.
