Pool Night, Gladstone

Last night we decided to vist the local 'Young Australian Hotel' a popular watering hole. Reason for going there was to see Jack Halligian a famous Australian pool player who was giving an exhibition display. He showed amonst others, one really good trick. Layed out a deck of cards and then let someone choose from a seperate deck. He then split the 'frame' and under the black ball was the selected card. Yet to figure how he did it.

He seemed to be enjoying himself taking on all comers. I did not get there early enough to get my name on the board. However I did fancy my chances againest some of the opposition. Main advantage I appeared to have over them was we arrived late, and most of the lads appeared to have been on the juice for a good few hours already....

Jack came over to have a chat with us and signed the back of Wannas shirt. not the front!!!! He seemed a really good bloke. Lots of fun.

being there made me realise, I miss my weekly pool nights back in the Chill Bar at Nam Phab Whan. All good fun.
