So far this year I am the Utah state Senior champion, Game/60 champion, and Expert Class co-champion. It seems not likely to me that I could win the actual State Championship in November, but it is a remote possibility.
The best player in the state is a 15 year old boy, Kayden Troff, who is currently playing in the U.S. Championship because he got a special invitation as an up and coming player. He is so far above everybody else in Utah that it is no contest. He is an International Master and could turn pro. He mostly does not bother with Utah tournaments anymore.
It doesn't take much to interfere with my concentration. Cheerleaders would do it. :-)

Way to go! Kick some ass! I'm cheering for you. Do they have cheerleaders there? I guess it'd be a big distraction.
