Now, total points is going to be tough because he is way, WAY ahead of me already obviously since he has played more weeks. I figured out that I need to gain an average of 6.4 points per week in order to tie at the end.

We have one more league night left and we play a pretty good team. I am currently 19 points back, so I had a better shot than expected. If these guys light him up and I don't lose... I've seen bigger upsets in the last week.

Final update.

I won the ERO bet easily and fell short on the total points bet. He won by 8 goddam points. Here's the funny part...

My first game my opponent breaks and runs out to the 8 ball and fouls. I got ball in hand with a table I run out 95 out of 100 tries. My first shot on this table and I slow roll the ball for shape and the table is like mud . The ball gets to the pocket and curls off into the tit. I missed and he fires the 8 in to beat me 10-0. If I just run that out and get the 10 points I win that bet as well. Terrible.

I'm halfway through 99 Critical Shots, and I feel like I'm learning a TON. it feels like the first time I read Super/System. A lot of fundamentals that were not immediately apparent.

I'm on vacation, can't wait to get back home and rack'em up!

I remember sitting around on a dorm couch in college about 15 years ago reading 99 critical shots and having someone exclaim "What class is that for?!"

It seemed that, after explanation, the thought of reading a book that wasn't assigned by a professor was foreign to him.
