The best travel bag!

On my way to Oslo for the Norwegian Championships 10-ball. I am playing in both open and womens division, it’s gonna be a busy weekend:)

I am seeded in both divisions so I play my first match at 21:00.

17th place in the end

August 17, 2021

So, I ended my tournament with a 4-7 loss against Ana Gradisnik (SLO) in the LQ. It was a busy saturday, first match was at 10:00 against Monika Zabek (PLO). I played ok and won 7-5. Next match 1130 against Melanie Süssenguth (GER) and this match was not good. I jsut could not find my game and lost 3-7. Then PCR test and match again at 1300 against Natalja Golob (SLO) which I won 7-1. My 4th match in a row was at 1500 against Yvonne Ullmann-Hybler (GER) and at this point we were all getting tired, terribly warm and the play form both of us was so-so. I did win in the end, 7-5 sending me to the LQ against Ana.

So, long day, terribly warm with the heatwave outside, my elbow not being very nice which destroyed my break shot, I am pretty happy with my game and the 17th place. After all, my last international tournament was Treviso in February 2020!

Next challenge now is the Norwegian Championships 3-5 september in Oslo where I will play both women and open.

Big thanks #Kamuibrand and also all og you out there reading my posts and sending med comments. I really appreciate it:)

Finally I am on my way to a tournament again! My last international tournament was when this all starteed, Treviso in february 2020. I have played a few local tournaments, but nothing since october 2020. So, I am all fired up, ready to play!

I have spent the last year trying to keep my menatl game up. I have been able to practice so I am luckier than most, but not being in a tournament mode for a log time does soemthing to you mindset. I did get a new job, finding new challenges to deal with that way, but it is not quite the same. Sadly my elbow is still making trouble, the infection is not yet gone. That means modified breakshots and being accurate with all angles to not stress it too much, but that is just another challenge and mindset. I feel up for it!

Can’t wait to meet all my friends and feel the atmosphere, not being able to compete for so long makes me realise how much I love it!

Mats Schjetne, Emil Andre Gangfløt and Albert Stensrød is playing today already, good luck!

I also have to say THANK YOU to KAMUI for your continued support, I really appreciate it! OB cues and I have parted, but I thank you for the support you did give me for several years.

So new season, new era, onwards and upwards!

Thanks for reading!

The Eurotour has started and I am not there this time. It is really strange, I have not missed a tournament for years, but with the restrictions we have in Norway it is not possible for me at the moment. The good news is that I finally got my appointment for the first vaccine shot so next time I will be there for sure!

I am off course following both events online, watching kozoom and wanting to play. St Johann is my favorite stop, the Sports Hotel Alpina with it’s beautiful view and the venue is always spotless.

I must say I am really happy that the EPBF managed to hold this event, it means we are mowing towards normality. I can’t complain, my family and I are healthy, I have my own pool table to practice, I got a new job and I am generally ok. But I must say I miss all my pool playing friends and the competition itself! As you all know it’s an addiction:)

So, I want to take this opportunity to say that from here on and out I will not miss more tournaments and sincerely thank Kamui for still supporting me. It says something when a company is willing to still support players even when they can not be at the tournaments and promote the products.

Also, remember you can follow the action on EPBF.COM and watch the livestream on KOZOOM.COM (and some free featured matches on EPBFS page on facebook)

Good luck to all the players in these two final days! And the EPBF and IBP with staff that make this possible.

Onwards and upwards!

Thanks for reading

2 out of 3 tournaments won, good start of the season:) I still can’t do a decent break because of my elbow, but I think that’s more my opponents problem than mine. I am going to rest my elbow a couple of weeks and see if it gets better. Next tournament is not before December as the Norwegian Championship 9-ball in Oslo next month is cancelled due to covid.

Hope you are all doing well and stay healthy, thanks for reading:) And thanks #KAMUIBRAND for equipping me with the best tip and chalk!
