What should I know before playing in my first pool tournament?"
That's a question I get on occasion and thought I would write a little something on the subject that I wish I had known before started playing in tournaments.
Know the rules
Don't be a baby
Find one: Start out slowly. Unless you have unlimited funds, I would suggest starting with the cheaper $5 & $10 tournaments. Get in as many as you can. The experience alone is well worth it! If you have fear, understand many others do as well. You'll find the anxiety will decrease the more you play.
