This past March, I was able to qualify at the pro stop in Houston, TX. I even went further than I had expected in the tournament, managing to finish in the 10th place spot. Such a result only increased my desire to keep playing the "perfect game", this time with my sights set on the professional level.
My goal is to play all seven stops of the upcoming Race for Eight pro tournaments. To do so will require finances I currently don't have as a student. Therefore, I'd be truly grateful if anyone who comes across this is willing and able to help me make achieve this goal.
By the research I have done, I estimate that I will need 5500 dollars to cover all travel, hotel, and tournament fees to play in all seven tournaments which range all across the US, from Atlanta to Portland and San Francisco.
The first pro stop starts in Atlanta, GA on the first weekend in October. My hope is to have the money raised by the middle of September so that I can arrange all transportation, hotel, and entry to do so.
Thank you for your time and support. I hope that my success in Houston is only a sign of things to come, made possible by your generosity.
