Getting a Tad bit anxious?
4/20/2012 9:53:25 AM
Played Tad Gibson last night in an impromtu challenge match at SRO. He had just finished playing a challenge match with August and said, "I'm warm wanna play our challenge match tonight?" I agreed and we played. As I understand it, Tad has back issues from just having surgery. I see where he is really good on offense, but I abused his level of defense last night by reading his body language and tendencies. Tad has a really strong right wall under and an occasional over. His LWO/U has a shoulder square up and his best shots against me were of a diamond or half diamond drift.
My shots that were the strogest against him were a drift cut as he charged at me I think he was watching my mallet just a little and that was enough to sneak by him. He did have a few charges that were successful but it was not until the last set that he got calm, back medication induced I think, and then he had a better match. It was the only time it looked like he was going to take a set. He was up 3 to 2 in game count. I relaxed and adjusted to his new timing and brought a win out in the last set with a few cross straights and the cut. His stopping of my RWU was very good the entire match. Great match Tad. I enjoyed playing you and look forward to playing you more in the future. Hope your back feels better soon.
