Big congratulations to Shane on winning both the 10 ball and the 8 ball U.S. Open titles! Losing the first match in the 8 ball and coming all the way through to win it all is a true sign of the champion that he is.

Also, congrats to Rory and Jesse on their very high finishes!

I think Shane's winning both of these events (and losing his first match in one of them and still winning that event) makes a good statement that pool is indeed an athletic sport or it can be if that's what you want it to be.

I believe that makes nine U.S. Open titles for Shane.

2013, 2016 8 Ball Champion. 2007 , 2011, 2012, 2013 9 Ball Champion. 2011, 2016 10 Ball Champion. 2012 One Pocket Champion.

I don't believe anyone else has ever won that many U.S. Open titles.

I love it.

But now, to what extent to you all feel differently about these victories, coming on a bar table as opposed to a 9 footer?

It just means the other guys had a chance at winning... beyond divine intervention.

I didn't mean my previous post to in any way question or diminish Shane's victories this week. It's an amazing accomplishment against the best in the world.

Congrats to Shane VanBoening winning both the 10 and 8 ball events just proves once again he is USA's best player.

Best of luck to Shane in Qatar at The World 9 Ball Championship time to bring a World title back to the states :)

I think it worked out great for CSI with Shane winning. He would have been the favorite in this field on 9 footers as well so not much difference. Hendrickson on the other hand would not have been a favorite on a 9 footer. He wins the 8 ball and everyone is making a fuss about the difference in table size.

Either way it's a win against the elite pool players. The best player of the tournament wins no matter the size of the table. We all know shane can win on a 7 or 9 foot table. A 9 footer would be more challenging but this event wasn't played on those.

That's an interesting point, if Hendrickson had won, there likely would have been a lot of complaining.

I recall that in a TAR interview Justin asked Shane "what's your favorite game?"

With absolutely no hesitation, SVB answered "barbox 8-ball."

Shane grew up playing barbox 8 ball I think right?

I like it too.

I'm just thinking of some of my friends who have literally never played on a 9 foot table before, all they play is barbox 8 ball. The few times I have gotten one of them on a 9 foot table for a game of 9 ball, they swear they're never coming back. They "can't wait" to get back to the BB because they're not used to missing pots.

Then Shane will most likely be at the 4 Bears Casino event September 15-18th.

On 9-footers, what's the likelihood that Hendrickson and Bowman would ever finish ahead of all of these: Pagulayan, Bustamante, Morris, Dominguez, Hohmann, Bergman, Deuel, Dechaine, Schmidt, Morra, and Klatt?

That's why they hold trnmnts.Bowman can play on any table. Roy is just not as capable.
