So I was watching one of my TAR DVDs last night and it got me to thinking of who I would like to see go at it in the TAR pit. Although these matches may never happen, it's fun to think of the possibilities.

Think of the best/coolest/funniest match-ups, and I'll make a cool fake TAR poster/ad. Here's mine:

Earl v Kid Delicious (a fast and loose shooter vs a slow and steady hustler)

Mark Griffin v Charlie Williams (CSI vs ABP, to get all their hate for each other out on the table!)

Who would you pay money to see?

Shane vs Appleton- 8 Ball
Bartrum vs Kelly Fisher- 9 Ball
Shane vs Frost-1 Pocket
McCready vs James Davis Jr- 10 Ball Bar Table
Donnie Mills vs Earl Strickland-9 Ball
Oscar D vs Keith Bennett-Rematch


The Bartrum/Fisher matchup would be interesting just to see what the gap in abilities is....

Also- All of the above would be gambling matches and not TAR prizefunds.

Straight pool, 1,000 points....4 day match..first to 250,500 750, 1,000.
Lots of candidates for this, I'd prefer John Schmidt and the Lion.

Totally read my mind.

Also - Schmidt vs. Harriman, the 4 day race to 1000 in straight pool (I know this is a snowball's chance).

Corey vs. anyone... where'd this guy go?

Shuff vs. Shuffet, just so people can finally get it straight. Plus, it might be an interesting match.

Anybody vs. Brumback, banks... maybe alex?
I never saw this guy play, or for that matter saw anyone gamble at banks, just some youtube dcc footage. Would like to see serious banks.

I don't think that's one I'd be willing to put my paycheck on. Freddie has forgotten more about banking than most people know, and well, we all know Brumback is a banks monster. They can both play top notch full rack. Short rack is all about firepower, full rack is a thinking man's game. I wouldn't bet against either of these guys.

Yeah, I'd love to see Landon Shuff versus Brandon Shuffett! :D

Seriously, I think a ring game would be very entertaining and profitable for TAR. They will have a lot of players in Vegas soon, so it shouldn't require too much incentive to get them into the TAR studio. Shuff, Dechaine, Strickland, Hatch, and Morris.

That would awesome. Another game could be captains one pocket with the three of them. You know, 2 vs 1 and rotate every game. It would make for an interesting game especially if all were mic'ed up.

Something different ... I would like to see Earl or Shane on a 10 foot table 10 ball against one of the top flight snooker guys (e.g. Ronnie Sullivan). In these conditions, long shots and neutralized break, I think the snooker guys will be really tough.

Do you mean the extra foot somehow neutralizes shane's break? Cuz it surely doesn't =)
We've seen a few players (notably landon shuffet) shoot straight as an arrow on 10 footers, like the extra distance didn't even faze them.

How about this instead, let shane play ronnie 10 ball on a snooker table. Ronnie knows what works and doesn't on the table, will it be enough to overcome a guy who knows all the moves in 10 ball? certainly the break will be neutralized here, as I imagine it's hard to make a specific ball on the break on those tables.

Banks ring game. Short rack. $5000 buy-in. 10-foot table. No safety play allowed till the last 2 remaining players of the Sunday finals.

Balls are initially worth $50 each. Every 3rd game, the ball value doubles. War of attrition.

First day (Friday) there are 5 players at the table. Three players are to be eliminated. The 2 left standing move on to Sunday.

Second day (Saturday), the same format with 5 other players. Top two players there also advance to Sunday.

On Sunday, those 4 top players meet for the final Banks ring game. Balls start at $100 each. They double in value every other game. One player will be left standing.

I'd love for it to be winner-take-all, but in reality, I'd pay the final 3.

You have $50,000 in entries.

1st - $25,000
2nd - 15,000
3rd - 10,000

My 10 would be:

John Brumback
Shannon Murphy
SVB
Shannon Daulton
Keith McCready
Brandon Shuff
Efren Reyes
Freddy the Beard
Nick Varner
Truman Hogue

A nice mix of current players and Legends. Mic up the table and watch the fireworks.

I know she owns a poolhall in Brooklyn and I couldn't image her not playing anymore. Somebody like her and her accomplishments im sure she has a very deep strong love for the game that will never fade go out or die. Even at 52 years old I bet she can still hit them sporty. Wish she never left the pool world but I dont blame her in the slightest.

I would put the farm on Jean to win 2 straight sets :cool:

Hennesse and Bowman on the Barbox

I'm watched a lot of TAR matches, almost all of them. I have become a little jaded because we've really seen the best players of the world go at it and finally settle some thoretical arguments.

To take a break from the known champions, I like the idea of a "Gambler's" series - matches between lower profile money players we don't get to see too often in tournaments. Hennesee, Bowman, Bartram, Mills, Bennett, Mike Davs - players like that Get Billy Incardone and Jay to work the booth

11-23-2012, 09:37 PM
This is just me,but I'd like to see something out of the ordinary here.

If I had to pick the next match,I'd like to see Shane,or another truly elite player,try and outrun one of those Scooter-type gaff games or some of the spots Dippy got against a solid player in their own right,but not someone that would be considered a known quantity,like an Average Joe-type that plays maybe a ball or 2 under Bartrum for example.

The interesting twist to this would be the match would have to be streamed from the Average Joe's home court,unless he felt comfortable trying to deal with that notoriously tough table.

I'd also like to see the previously mentioned male vs. female scenario.

It least with a woman involved,you wouldn't have to worry about dumb shit going on in the background,and make it about the game,not histrionics. Tommy D.

If there is any chance of TAR getting a match between two huge rollers with hundreds of thousands in the middle and without TAR having to put their own cash into the middle (and simply paying for the production" I think they should jump at this. Pool between almost any two people is interesting when those two people are playing for lottery type money and sweating every shot.

11-24-2012, 02:47 PM
Celtic....I totally agree. I understand why TAR has adopted the "prize fund" concept...but nothing compares with 2 gamblers going at it for all their own loot (alright their backers loot).

I would love too see Shane/Orcullo long race for 50k apiece.

Shane and Frost one hole-race to 10 for 50k apiece.

Busty against anyone for the same as above.

I have asked him a few times to play 8 ball(express or take what you make on the break old school) heads up.

I cant win playing banks

2 or 3 years ago i liked plating him one hole but I dont like that now that he played every champion, he probably can out move me, not sure.
