Welsh Open and Lismore Castle News

I am finalizing my preparations for next weeks Welsh open in Newport
taking place between February 27th and March 5th.
Before a tournament I usually go to Ilford and practice with Anthony Hamilton
and then travel to the venue but as I play Anthony in the first round in Wales
I obviously stayed at home this time.
I have been putting in a lot of time on the practice table by myself working on a few areas of my game I felt I could improve
and having some practice games with Michael Judge, Gary Hardiman and Rodney Goggins.
I am happy with my form, well rested and relaxed and looking forward to the tournament.
This doesn't guarantee results but its a great start.

I am delighted to announce I am playing an exhibition in the magnificent Lismore Castle
in County Waterford on Thursday 23th March.
Arranged by my friend and agent Michael Bumster it will be the first of its kind in such a prestigious venue.
I will play ten players from the Dungarvan and Lismore area in what promises to be a special night.
Hopefully I can put in a performance worthy of such splendid surroundings.

Finally thanks to everyone who has supported the website.
Although more work than I ever envisioned at the planning stage,
to have received over a quarter of a million hits in such a short period of time is fantastic.
This is a great game and I'm trying to provide a great service for its many worldwide fans.
