Women can't beat the men playing nine ball can they?  Please..... it must
have been a fluke.  Let me know when it happens again.
JoeyA, stirring the pot.

I'd say Alison and Karen are getting stronger, but before you can make any
judgments about these results you need to know that the conditions at the room
that held the event even the field. The tables are tight and roll very fast, a
strong break doesn't exist, the tables lend themselves for safes and simple
runs, running racks isn't something you see on these tables. IMO Karen can play
as good as the men if the break isn't a factor. I watched a few of her matches
and saw 2 she should have lost, but I also watched her play great against
Santos winning 9-8.

Jim <----Congrats to Karen and Julie

Good to see Karen has recovered. I saw her playing in the semi-finals of the
WPBA tournament at the San Diego classic last Sunday and she had to leave
the match several times due to illness. Frankly she looked ready to vomit on
the table quite a lot of the time, but managed to hold it together well
enough to win the first match against Julie Kelly, losing the second to
Helena Thornfeldt.

According to AZBilliards info Karen also finished in the top 8 at 4 stops on
the Joss Northeast tour in 2002, very respectable results for any player
given the level of competition. I can't believe all those venues had tight
pockets that denied powerful breaks.

Don't worry, Joey, this is actually the second time in a month that it
has happened.  In early March, Phoebe Choy blasted through a tough 64
player field in Honolulu to win the Vegas qualifier & grab a spot in
the Vegas 9 ball Tournament.

Here's the link to the story:

and here's a few links to pictures of the lovely winner:

The ladies are tearing up the local circuits with a vengeance.  What
is even scarier is the fact that Jeanette Lee,in this photo:

has regained that look in her eyes.  Combine that with the desire and
determination she had ten years ago, and who knows what lies ahead in
her pool future.

" I can't believe all those venues had tight

   Maybe not, but I sweated some of that tourney on Saturday and Jimbo is
absolutely right, the tables were perfect for Ms. Corr.  I was very impressed
with her play, but not her break.  I missed Sundays matches, but I can't see
how she would have gotten past Lisciotti if the tables were slower (hell, she
should not have gotten past him as it was).  How did Carlos do?

We have the same problem but since I have been playing a lot of pool lately,
mine might let me date her. :-)
