Folks:

(Too bad ThePatheticRonSwanson isn't still around, otherwise he'd be all over this. :p )

This looks like some exhibition match that took place in China late last year, and seemed to consist of 9-ball, snooker, and trick shots:

Part 1: 9-ball

Part 2: Snooker (short rack)

Part 3: Trick shots

In all of these, it's fairly obvious Ronnie is "lemoning it" periodically, one-stroking, freewheeling, etc. He misses shots -- especially in snooker -- that you'd never see him miss. (Consider that Ronnie just got off from successfully defending his title at the 2013 World Snooker Championship.)

Anyway, a fun watch!

Since when has that stopped a discussion on AZBilliards? By the way what's the best break cue?

I noticed that too. In the 9 ball it looked like he was going to blow her out of the water, the snooker too. But he clearly let up with exhibition shots.

But it's an exhibition and I think he was trying to make it a competition and make her look good. Nothing to gain really by annihilating her. She also looked pretty nervous based on how she played at the start of 9 ball.

Doesnt matter when you can just get a tip that has been alphagorically meticulized for a minimum of 36 hrs and then milk dudded. Breaks in all 9 quite often.
