In the makeshift billiard room/garage, he sometimes trained alone up to 6 hours per day. In the summer days, under a hot tin roof, the heat was often 100 + degree while in the winter his feet sometimes squelched around on the wet carpet scraps due to a leaking garage, to begin his dream of becoming world champion. Along the way there were many detours pursuing new skills, finding new homes, leaving friends and family for the other side of the world.
