ups and downs

sorry for late blog it been a while,just been so bust the past month and lots been happening in that time..

before china i watched money match night 4 at wakefield and my brother shane stepped upto the plate and beat matthew lawrenson 21-15 played great.. and witnessed 2 other classic matches afran dad beating craig dixon and andy barnett beating ben finch what a atmosphere that match was..

headed to china in good form maybe made the mistake of only arriving 2 days before my match i played fu jianbo china no 1 and recent world cup of pool winner i didnt feel great in the match but played solid but still lost 11-7 then next match lost to rudolfo luat 11-10 i missed a hanger 8ball at 10-1- dont know why i missed it as it was impossible to miss lol.. and that was me done took early flight to thailand for pattaya 9ball invitational.. i was there to play but also i wanted to take advantage of pattaya and treat it like vacation also..i did win a handicap tournament at megabreak but the main event i just played bad and lost to reece pontus 9-8 was good tournament eventually won by alcano beating corteza in the final..
had a great time in pattaya and like to thank all the lads at megabreak and my friend yannick and tournament organiser for invite alan chau was good times..
come home for one day then headed to sarejvo for the first time this event was great and these guys treated us like stars and the venue and hotel was top class.. around 230 players so was great turnout and we was playing 10ball with triangle rack so coudnt wish for better format and conditions.. i really played well this event winning 50-10 rack score to reach semi final..but then come unstuck against ralf souquet 10-6 started of good then few bad rolls ralf couple of big shots on me turned the game in his favour i tried hard but come up short this time but ralf great player so disgrace losing to him and actually it first time he beat me since 2007 i had won the previous 5 times so i was proud of that record..eventually it was going to end as he one of the best players.and ralf went on to beat raj hundal in final well done to ralf and raj on agreat tournament. so 3rd place finish pretty good and gives me confidence for us open i fly thursday and know i probably need a good
run there if am to make mosconi cup also fingers crossed :-)
