Thanks,
Bronze not my favorite colour but it was the maximum available last week I think. Tahti is the best wheelchair player ever and he got lucky a couple of times too which was an extra problem!!!! On top of that I missed a simple 9 early in match. Little disappointed but like I said I think it was maximum available, it's impossible to compete with people who are Playing as their job. We are way behind in Ireland!!!

well, it's still pretty damn good to get on the podium and bring home a medal smiling smiley

I totally agree with you about professional American Pool Ireland being waaaay behind in the and the bigest problem for alot of players is the rip-off petrol prices/travel costs to and there simply is not enough prize money in tounraments yet, to make it worth while for players to travel long distances to compete, which in turn not only makes the turnouts lower, but it makes potential prize money alot less than it should be, which also in turn makes it 100x more difficult to obtain any kind of financial sponsors to add money to events.

Unfortunately, I think it's just a sign of the current economic times.
