Break Cue: Fury
I am a poolplayer. I can not stop playing and competing, I would go crazy. I just love it! I started to play when I was 13, stopped for a few years, and then never looked back. I have been around the world and played in World Championships and European Championships, and I really feel lucky. Not many people will experience this in life.
Basics about me: I was born 16. January 1975 and had a son in 1994. This stopped my education plan for a while, but I got back on the horse and got a bachelor in Economy and administration. In 2004 I got married and still am. Together my husband and I have a poolshop, a poolroom and some other relatively small businesses. We do almost everything ourselves so the that sets the limit. In between managing everything and doing odd jobs for the Norwegian School of Management, I travel and play pool. Being a control freak I have also been a board member in the Norwegian Federation on and off since I was 20 and for the moment I am the Internal Advisor for the European Pool Billiard Federation.
Anyway, pool is what I do and a poolplayer is what I am. It is that simple. Hopefully I can affect someone out there to enjoy pool as much as I do. Please feel free to leave a comment or ask a question. Disrespectful entries will be removed, hopefully that will not be too many:)
