Stick 15th Oct in your diary to watch me on Countdown. Big thanks to the Countdown Team too if they are reading this. I had a blast.

I find it so interesting that this series there seems to be a lot more potential apterite on apterite matchups. Zarte vs Dylan happened, Gemma vs Jen could, and now Mark vs Sean could. The spacing seems so different this series compared to ones past.

I think due to the sheer volume of Apterites it was inevitable there'd be all Apterous matches. It would be impossible to keep all Apterites 8 games apart! When you think about it if you're going on the show you want nobody special starting within 7 shows before OR after you, so you're looking for a 15 day Dylan/Zarte/Jen free-zone. Future series should be a bit less intense though.

Sean, Mark, Fiona, Adam, Alex and Callum could all run into each other in some way I think. I've tried to keep away from proper spoilers to make it more interesting to watch because it's going to be a good few weeks.

Adbirizak is certainly one to watch. He plays with great enthusiasm and skill.

My episode(s) will be broadcast on Friday 27th September (and each weekday thereafter, should I pick up any wins).

I'll only mention this instead of him since I don't believe he's on this site, but Horace Horlicks mentioned to me that he airs on the 29th.

1187 rating, 127th pro ranks, but 3rd in Most Time Played. The man is an apterous legend. Can't wait to see him on Countdown.

I know pool players who play loads and loads (8 hours a day), and aren't that good! Practice makes perfect, but practice doesn't make the best!

You just have to get used to it. A lot of people have said that they struggled at first, but I find it's fine after a while. But there is a ticket about making it easier for beginners anyway (I seem to recall).

Having successfully negotiated the phone audition a month or so ago, I received the call with a filming date yesterday.

I'm on the last show being filmed on 13th January. I now live in hope that no other Apterites are on that day- in which case I might have a chance!
