Hopefully the quality of pool will make up for it. I'm a
little bummed, too, but I have to hand it to these guys
for putting themselves in this position.

I saw an Asian match on YouTube where they had some sort of tracking on the table and they could visualize the table and the position of all the balls in 3D and then show it from any angle. I know something similar has been used during the Superbowl. I believe this could be the future... sure, not the same as live video. But it would actually be easier to stream the data as the "engine" is located on your desktop computer. And imagine being able to rotate the 3D view so you could see the layout from any angle and zoom in or out. But... what am I talking about... there's no money in pool for this type of technology !

Does good but odd on the 3, makes it bumps a ball now looking at a piece of the 4 on the rail just past the side pocket, makes it and now looking at a open table. Under strokes the 5 and now no shot on the 6, has to bank or play safe. He tries to spin it in, too thin ball doesn't make it leaves it hanging in the pocket.

Table looks like 14.1 right now, Kevin has to play the 1 off the 4 and spin soft for the 2 you know how spin works snookers himself, kicks leaves a piece of the 2 which boyes makes but has to combo the 3/5 of he wasn't to, makes that with position

Time out (them not me)
Kevin 6 shooting a 918
Boyes 2 shooting a 844
Boyes needed that out cause he was in give up mode, he still seems down and could relapse at any moment

Celtic
10-30-2015, 06:14 PM
Karl is shooting completely horrible, missed two outs that any pro is expected to get,

One where he blew shape on a 6-ball and played an absurd 90 degree angle cut shot that was about as low percentage pool as you will ever see a pro play. He could have played a thin chip safety and gotten distance and potentially a hook behind the 9-ball instead played a suicidal cut.

The next game he makes a great bank shot, gets onto a 4-5 combo and plays it great and has easy shape on the 8-ball and the balls are wide open, and he blows it.

Those two games alone and this is a tight match, in fact at the break we are 6-2 and with those two games that Karl is clearly "supposed" to win it is instead 4-4 atm.

I do not see Karl winning this thing, he is completely nerved up and it is showing bigtime.

10-30-2015, 06:48 PM
Karl missed a pretty easy 1-ball in the jaws which just needed a little masse and cueball coming off the rail to tick it in. Missed the 1-ball completely and gave up ball in hand, Cheng should be out.

Both playing sub 0.900 pool atm, pretty weak play with quite a few errors.

Celtic
10-30-2015, 06:53 PM
Cheng did get out, up 8-5. Broke dry and Karl made a great 1-ball bank using a ball to stop the cueball for the 2.

Looks like an easy out from here, he will probably miss.

<edit> Nope, he even surprised himself and actually got out after trying to scratch in the side pocket on his 8-ball shot but failing to hit it hard enough.

Cheng up 8-6, Karl breaking.

10-30-2015, 06:56 PM
Karl has a horrible leave off the break, looking at a kick, should be pushing out to a better kick.

<edit> He did push, Cheng gave it back, it was a bad move, Karl made a sick shot shooting the 1-ball through a window and stopping the cueball dead for a really good safety.

Cheng with shorty, kicked to an open safe

Cheng runs out, but he is really tightening up as he closes on the finish line. If Karl could actually get to the table and put a couple racks up there I think we might see some cracks in Cheng's armor, but Karl's own misses earlier in the match have put him into a huge deficit.

Celtic
10-30-2015, 07:17 PM
Another good break, 1-ball came off the point of the side and is hanging over the corner. Pretty routine out here.

Celtic
10-30-2015, 07:21 PM

Terrible shot on the 3 by Karl, Kevin has another chance to win.

Cheng shot a weak shot and has a thin 4 with tough shape.

and he hit it great, should be out now.

and he screwed up shape and had to play safe, which he did well. Karl has to kick,
