PRESENTING BILL VISSER, 1ST PLACE WINNER

INTERNATIONAL SINGLES, MESA ARIZONA!!

Bill Visser of Niagara Falls, ON, winter resident of Arizona, placed first in the Championship Event of the Men’s Singles event!!  This was a significant tournament, prize money for 1st was just over $1,000. US, and with 212 competitors, the competition was keen!

The SHUFFLER spoke with Bill immediately following his win: The SHUFFLER: Bill, how does it feel to take 1st in this event? Bill; “I feel like I am the luckiest man alive, I had a great deal of good luck!  There is also the element of skill and trying to block your opponent but I think my opponent was a bit heavy and put himself in the kitchen when it really hurt him.”  THE SHUFFLER:  How important was your familiarity with the courts to the win? Bill: “Don and I talked about that; where Don is used to shooting on courts that are 5 to 6 seconds, we in Arizona are accustomed to 13 to 14 second courts.  We put up a hide before we put up our second shot and then hide behind.  In Florida it is more like a straight take out shot and stick, and try to put your opponent in the kitchen.  I believe our game has a little more finesse to it.”  THE SHUFFLER: Have you ever shuffled in Florida Bill?  Bill: “Never, I have shuffled in Texas and in Yuma ~~ but I have shuffled in Ontario.  THE SHUFFLER salutes Bill Visser of ON for his win and for these observations.  I am sure his observations will spark some intense debate between and among shufflers of the “east and west”. However; the common theme will be the respect for Bill for this significant win.
