welcome to my other blog lol.
i do have a different blog on my website www.darrenappleton.com but from now on i will paste what i write on both blogs.
thanks to dave knight at www.pro9.co.uk for giving me a vip blog spot on his website its a great idea and gives us the players and the website more exposure.:-)
i got busy period and excited times ahead firstly am happy to eport my game in good shape and feel really strong mentally and feel like am approaching my peak just at the right time of the year and i feel really hungry again for success,recently i been in good form last few tournaments i finished 9th euro tour,2nd gb9 tour split a final of yorkshire 9ball open with chris melling,and finally 3rd place at guniness world series of pool in indonesia beating the likes of dennis orcullo and ralf souquet along the way before losing to eventual champion jundel mazon 8-6.
up and coming events next week my first time to finland for european pool tour helsinki so looking forward to that. then back home and prepare for something really big a minimum 100k bet money match against david "viffer" peat poker player from las vegas,he is coming to england to play poker and agreed to play me on the 11th september at rileys,barnsley in south yorkshire race to 15 am giving 16-4 handicap means i got to make 16balls to his 4 per rack,i did beat him in a few sets in las vegas in may giving him 15-4 handicap so i feel confident about my chances especially playing at home which is very rare i get big games in uk.
on the 12th sept same venue day after am running predator uk 10ball masters like to htank predator for there sponsorship towards the annual event this will its 2nd year running.you can enter by visiting www.pro9.co.uk or contact me through my website www.darrenappleton.com
rest of sept little bit up in the air which is frustrating i want to go manila 13th sept to play predator 10ball international open 15th-19th but its clashes with gstaad swiss open same time and the swiss open is sanctioned by epbf but predator 10ball not sanctioned so epbf tring to stop us playing if so i will probably play in swiss open as its a good tournament too with good prize fund.. then from there go to shanghai for china open 22nd-26th sept then 27th head to thailand pattaya for a tournament there which starts 1st-4th october pattaya invitational 9ball.
then from thailand head home for day or two then head to sarejevo open in bosnia 8-10th oct then to us open 9ball in virginia so really busy schedule ahead.
also i decided i will put a shop up on my website and hoping in near future to design my own cueline and other cool stuff so watch out for that and keep checking my website.
for now i still got jetlag as just got back from manila where i had break from pool its 2.45am and i feel wide awake :-(.but the trip was worth it was great to see my friends dave,steve,gerry, and i got to play efren reyes for around 1k i lost 21-16 but enjoyed the night and will play him again for sure.
also last note i was so saddened to hear the loss of chris mellings mam 2 weeks ago while at the airport in jakarta on my way to manila she was a great person and will be sadly missed and my thoughts and condolances go out to chris and his family stay strong pal and focus on what you do best and do it for your mam.
oh nearly forgot i watched the final of world 8ball championships from blackpool last night english 8ball wow what a performance from mick hill to beat gaz potts 11-8 some awesome finishes in the match was one of the best matches ever on tv congrats to both players.
ok ill try and keep this blog updated much as possible
