The triumphant moment when a pool player beats a seasoned 3 cushion player. This was my last point game for the win and he was absolutely confident I wouldn't score, since it was a difficult shot. So much so that he made a side bet. Well...I took my sweet time to think the shot through ๐Ÿค” and went for it. He couldn't believe I made it and called "bullshit" haha ๐Ÿ˜‚. It was all in fun. Gosh! I can't recall having this much fun in billiards in a while. Highlight of my night. Guess you can't trump beginner's luck! ๐ŸŽฑ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™Š

Love that feeling of coming home. When you've been dying inside to shoot and finally get to stand at the table with cue in hand. That feeling is beyond compare... perfect, just perfect ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐ŸŽฑ๐Ÿ˜

People often asked me what goes on in my mind when I'm about to shoot. Answer is simple really. Nothing! Absolutely nothing. I think on my feet but once I commit to a shot, my mind goes blank and my vision becomes narrow. I find that the most enjoyable pool moments for me is when I enter into that state which I like to called the "No Mind Zone" . It's the state where my mind holds zero thought. Zilch. Nada. At least just for that moment in time lol. It's the reason why I find pool so relaxing ๐ŸŽฑโค๏ธ. Truth is if you're thinking while shooting then you're not really shooting. Miss shots happen as a result. I'd like to know what goes on in your mind while shooting? ๐Ÿค”๐ŸŽฑ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜

If you have ever wondered what's lurking behind the mind of a pool player... well here's an idea. Welcome to Pool Nation. A sport - yes, I consider it a sport - both recreationally and competitively. Unlike any other sport, pool truly does not discriminate a person or groups of individuals based on age, gender, or any ethnic background. Anyone can learn, play and with practice become great. That's what I truly love about this game! ๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŽฑ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ซโค๏ธ

Oooh yea! Happy Labor Day to me lol ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜‹. I've been craving steak for a while now and finally today I have decided to reward myself. It's not too often I eat steak but when I do I like it done a certain way. Golden crispy crust on the outside seared with butter, rosemary and garlic. Mmm... the aroma is intoxicating ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ™

Some shots are easier than others. Then there are some shots that are extremely difficult. In the end, it all comes down to timing. For me, every shot carries a certain beat, a certain rhythm๐ŸŽต. Fine tuning to that rhythm of beat for each shot is possibly the hardest part. ๐ŸŽผ๐ŸŽถโณ๐Ÿค— .

Part 2 - The Triple Threat

Initially thought of going for a safe since the 3, 7, and 9 were poorly aligned for a triple combo. As if that's not bad enough, I'd have to worry about the 9 running into the 6 ball. It's a tight squeeze pass the 6 ball toward corner pocket. But boy do I love early outs!! A siren went off in my head and after inspecting the shot, I said to myself, "ah, what the heck... I'm going for it!" And so... I called the triple combo 9 haha ๐Ÿ˜‚. So super lucky I made it! ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™Œ

PART 1 - The "Pefect" Rack ๐ŸŽฑ

What most people don't realize is that behind the scene, I'm actually quite silly lol... really silly! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ™ˆ. He was purposely taking forever to rack and made me stood there waiting forever. When I had asked what's taking him so long, he insisted he wanted the "perfect rack." So what's a girl to do, but to entertain herself... with her cue lol. I knew what he was trying to do the moment I saw the rack. You know your opponent is strategically pattern racking in order to give you a tougher spread and thus, making it more difficult for you to run out. FYI, I broke with a house cue with medium power for this rack. No fancy break cue needed โ˜บ๏ธ. To Be Continued...

There's something about 3C that brings the little girl out in me... 5'X10' of smooth canvas of which I have full freedom to draw and play on. Imagination is required. Everything else is optional. .๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ‘ธ๐ŸŽฑ๐ŸŽจ๐ŸŽก

Don't focus on being the best, focus on being better. A better pool player today than you were yesterday. Always strive to learn, grow, evolve and soon you might just be "better" than "the best". Winners never quit and Quitters never win. Happy shooting! ๐ŸŽฑ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜Š
