What Worked for Thorsten
You’re excused if this didn’t look familiar at first glance. Thorsten Hohmann, however, will never forget it. This was what he faced after his break in the case game of the 2006 IPT North American Open final. Run it, and he’d walk away with a $350,000 payday. Falter, and Hohmann might walk away in second, with a prize a quarter million bucks lighter.
For our study in game planning, let’s check in with Thorsten to see what was going through his mind as he cleared eight balls to win the massive first prize.
