Not only did we hold a pool tournament, but we also had a raffle and collected money for fouls. The fouls and raffle really made the atmosphere a lot of fun. I was fined 3 times for being a shitty referee. One game had 8 scratches. All in all, there were over 30 scratches in just over 15 games!
I want to thank Danny Peters, Emily Yang, Don Shick-a-Nickie, Lad Park, Matt West, Lee, Nobber, and Tae Hoon (who helped me clean up the bar and get it ready. We had been open till 9 a.m. the Friday previous so the bar was a mess!)
We raised 345,000원 total
180,000 from the tournament (20,000 entry fee)
60,000 from the raffle* (thank you, Nobber, for an outstanding idea)
75,000 from fouls and and run-outs (every player put 1,000 into the pot for 8 ball run and 2,000 in the pot for Break and Run)
10,000 extra from Danny
20,000 from Lenny (sorry you couldn't be there! You would have enjoyed it^^)
*the raffle was a blind draw of tickets. Each ticket had the name of a participating player. The winning ticket was the ticket with the winner of the tournament's name

**Sorry your first money placement in a tourney didn't win you money. Them's the breaks with charity^^
If you're looking at the brackets and wondering who the Ghost is, s/he is one of the losing players being drawn randomly and reinserted. The first ghost was Don and the second one was Emily.
