Jerry Deren Speaks: The shuffle tourney @ LKL started off warm & humid. The 22 pro
& 14 amateur players drew partners before play began. The format was 8 frames down on one color & switch colors for the remaining 8 frames. Ties resulted in a 3rd game.
All the games were dramatic & interesting , but one in particular was Earl Ball & partner Harold Comeau playing behind in points against their opponents the whole game of their 2nd game of their 2nd match until the 15th frame when Earl @ the head of the court made a miraculouse shot to put them up by 2 pts . They survived that game & placed 1st in consolation.
