In the final game of the Kenai Senior Olympics pool tournament, Max Pitts watches his shot while his opponent, last year’s champion Ken Losser, rests in the background on Tuesday, Feb. 21, 2017 at the Kenai Teen Center in Kenai, Alaska. Losser won, remaining undefeated in this year’s 8-player double elimination competion, though narrowly — Pitts scratched on the eight ball. The 13th annual Senior Olympics will continue until Saturday with events including poker, pinochle, ping-pong, darts, dominoes, cribbage, basketball, and Wii bowling.
