Hey All,

Just wanted to share this little gem of a game that happened between Karen
Corr and Ian Costello this weekend at Salt City Billiards for the Joss Tour
stop.

This was a match on the winners side.  Winner of this match will be in the
final 2 on the winners side and gets to play for the hotseat.

Ian was leading the entire match.  I think the score was 5-2 or 6-2 at one
point.  Anyways, he chose some tricky banks instead of safety play in
previous games and after a while the match was knotted up at 8-8 and on the
hill.

Ian was running out the final rack and was left with this position.

START(
%E\3C9%FG3T3%Gc5I3%HD3D1%IJ2Q6%P^6I6

)END

From the sidelines, it didn't even appear that the 5 would go, as it
appeared to be on the point.  It did go however, and he left himself with
this next shot.

START(
%E\3C9%FG3T3%Gc5I3%HD3D1%IJ2Q6%P^6I6%RU1N4%_W2M6%`\0D0%a^5I2

)END

He came up a little short for position on the 6.  Ian could not see enough
of the 6 ball to pocket it, so he elected to hit it full and stick the
cueball behind the nine.  This was the result.

START(
%Fq4U9%Gc5I3%HD3D1%IJ2Q6%PH9R2

)END

Wow, Ian must feel pretty good for executing that safety so perfectly
considering the hill-hill situation, and Karen must feel pretty crappy.

Anways this is what happened next:

START(
%Fr0V0%Gc5I3%HD3D1%IJ2Q6%PH9R2%RV1X3%UC9O2%VH3R0%Wr5Y8%Xr0W3
%YW8D0%ZC3N6%[q5T6%\X9C7%]X8Y1%^q4U1
)END

She kicks 2 rails, makes the ball, and the cueball ends up at B for a testy
shot on the 7.  She makes it and continues for the run out and the match.
She brought the house down with that shot.

See ya

Thanks.  I would have felt pretty good with that leave, as well.
