Iím trying to recall, is this pick of five, at this point Ė this week, it, absolute, the roster, no alternateís?
A lot can happen between now and game time.
Iím also trying to recall what the team does to be in shape, at their best Ė in state, for game day.
Once selected, are they under contract, no gigs/tournaments till after this match up. I
do remember the team doing appearance/exhibitionís kind of stuff.
I guess what Iím really after, is; will/could the team from this point, with player
commitment(s) become like a club, tour together till cup day? By bid, have rooms put
their best 5 up, challenge team USA in the same Mosconi Cup format - condensed, the
ultimate road trip, If this is already the plan, being done, my apologies for not catching it last year.

Thanks for the contribution to this thread. I just live off of clicks. I can't make it through the day without them. I live for those clicks. If I don't get them, my life may come to an end.
If you added the words "final points standings" then there would have been nothing wrong with this thread and posters wouldn't have clicked not knowing there was bait and switch in the title

You know that though.

No comment on the other four threads you created with five high-profile American names in the running?

I think that is a great idea.

After reading the hatchetmans billiard buzz article I'm basically on his bandwagon to make the team. Not only has he made life changes and focused once again on his professional pool career but he got second in points so it's truly not fair to leave him off I mean if u can get second and not make the team then what's the point of having points? Also a huge reason I'm on his bandwagon after reading the article is he says his favorite tournament is the mosconi cup and he nonstop talks about how much it means to him and that's the kind of personality I need representing me and the country I live In and LOVE. Go USA!!!!

I don't read it that way, JAM. The news release says: "... the captain will pick his side from the top ten with the option of going outside the ten for one of his picks should he feel it necessary." That's unchanged from the plan right along -- 4 must be from the top 10 and 1 can be anyone eligible for Team USA, even someone's grandad (or mom). I don't think the fact that the news release shows the top 20 changes anything. They actually provide (via a click) a full list of everyone who has earned points, and the list has 137 names on it this year: http://www.matchroompool.com/wp-cont...a-rankings.pdf

But I think it's certainly likely that the 5th pick will come from the first or second ten on the points list.

[And if your inside info is correct, maybe you already know he's from the second ten.]

Hmmm. So your theory is that the team is Van Boening, Hatch, Woodward, Thorpe, and Dominguez, and that JAM sneakily revealed that with her thread titles today. Hmmm.

[that would be a good team]

I'm trying to bring the latest news to the members here who like discussing it and hearing the latest.

What's your next criticism of me? There are many people in this forum and elsewhere who do enjoy reading pool-related topics, to include what I bring to this forum and have been since 2004 under the same forum name.
JAM,
I have read each of the threads you started about the Mosconi Cup, possible selections, etc., and have found the threads to be stand-alone, each offering different perspectives on players, selections, etc.......

As a thread evolves, posters add commentary that gives each thread its own direction.

Again, I found them ALL interesting and appreciate your thoughtfulness to bring them to the fore.

Will Prout

Isn't this the same Dennis Hatch that was involved in an armed robbery of
the owner of Classic Billiards.

http://sporttoday.org/12_dc1a2d3fdc108581_1.htm

Maybe it's someone else.

Edit: That's back in 2002.
Probably not the same guy OR no one cares any more....lol

Bergman is an ABSOLUTE must! No questions asked.
Perfect choices.

No second chances for dumpers. IMO.

Whatever, I'm European anyway, so I don't get a vote. I hope he picks Bergman and Woodward. Those are my picks. I want it to be a close, good match, not another steamroll. This year they have their best chance in years and years. The European team looks very weak. Lets hope nobody gets any "smart" ideas and tries to make money with the oddsmakers. Sadly, I think that is almost guaranteed if certain players are picked...

the events he played in but for whatever reason wasn't able to make it to more events.
Anyways, just a thought
