    Thanks Chris

    One amusing thing for me is a Canadian made it on "Team America" for the Esptien Cup :D

    I told them they have to rename the team to Team North America :lol:

    Flight out is at 10pm EST tomorrow, I'm glad I'm heading there early to get over the jetlag :?

    That again everyone for the vote of confidence, I'm going to need it :lol:

    I have not broken the qualifying bubble at IFPA yet, outside of PAPA, IFPA is the next hardest tournament I've ever played in, reason being their are no crappy players in the lot.

    Unlike Pinburgh where you can usually count of a few jobbers to beat up on in your group, everyone at IFPA is good, no one there sucks so the competition is fierce.

    Go Adam. Best of Luck. Let's hope those Germans don't riot after Adam wins - you know those "Pinball Hooligans"! ;-)

    Amsterdam.... Find a coffee shop, have a smoke, you'll sleep like a log.

    Grüße aus Deutschland

    after 5 days in Paris just doing the tourist thing, had my first pre tourney.

    There were 95 players and they were only taking the top 6 spots. It was match play 1v1 with wins and losses.

    I ended up in a 5 way tie breaker with 3 of the 5 getting in. Made it through the tie breaker but didn't do so well in the finals and took 5th.

    Still happy with the result, considering how big the field was.

    Now 5 more days of tooling around Germany and then onto the Ifpa, for the Epstien cup, Charity Challenge and of course the world champs.
