Or that it is a carnival game & deserves no attention

Somebody posted links to the stream last year. I'm sure the same will happen this year. Stream quality last year varied from pretty good to buffer-city. Some Chinese commentary, some in English. Brutal game. IMO i'd rather play either pool or snooker, not this hybrid.

Well you have this event which was scheduled after Appleton had already announced his event. Shane is there because he was signed by Joy. The other few who travel from the US are at Appleton's and or see no reason for the expense. The Taiwanese probably were not welcome. Wasn't this the tournament that all that WPA contract talk at the US Open was about, that players had to sign, or was that for another Chinese event?

The Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/chinese8ball/) makes mention of streaming:

"Live Streaming of Chinese 8-Ball Masters can be found by installing Pool Live app in Appstore."

Hopefully it isn't limited to that.

Can you picture a couple of mid-level league players playing this? One game could take FOREVER. I've read that something like 60million play it there. I imagine even the short-stops play like Houdini if all they play on are these brutal tables.

Yeah I wonder if where you read that at was from people who used the same statistical methodology as the BCA used for years saying pool was the most "played" "sport" in the US, or whatever that inflated misleading stat was they used to throw around.

Yeah I hear ya'. I was kinda thinking same thing when i read those numbers. Pool is big in both Taiwan and on the mainland so its possible that figure is not too far off. If they ever field a Mosconi team the rest of the world is in trouble.

I was wondering why Shane wasn't at Turning Stones this week. I guess he wont be at Darren's 8ball event either.

Lol. Let's see how SVB, the world's greatest pool player, apparently, handles a game of skill and precision. Not very well would be my guess.

Nothing demonstrates the poverty of American cueing better than Chinese 8 ball.
