This was a really nice tournament in Florida this weekend. Corey played extremely well as did Louis Ulrich and many others.

Why'd Deuel miss the 9 ball in the 10 ball FINALS match with Rodney Morris?

The cueball curved too much.
The cueball deflected too much.
The object ball threw too much.
The object ball threw too little.
He aimed incorrectly.
(NO POLL)

What do you think happened?

His mind was on signing some memorabilia, for sure.

We all know why Corey and John missed the ball...

It happens to EVERYONE, we all miss "routine" shots.

At least when I dog a ball, I don't have to listen to everyone in the pool room analzye why I missed it.

Lets let these guys lick their wounds without pouring salt in them.

Corey didnt miss, there was dirt on the felt, actualy it was a buger that was flung by a spectator, when the 9 ball rolled across it, it sent it in a direction other that into the pocket, Purely an accident, the suspected buger flinger had been see picking thier nose the whole match, it was only when the green glob got stuck to this persons finger that it became a problem, whitch was Flung 37 feet 8" whitch a reliable resource said may be a new world record.


SH*T happens..

When playing Snooker, there are problems like a "kick". When a kick happends, the objectball move out of the normal line.

What do you think that particular nine ball would be worth if Corey signed it and dated it with witnesses in the pool room and also present a local accounting firm founder present certifying the signature?

Give me a number, not some silly BS like "Whatever someone would be willing to pay? Give me a range if you can't be specific.

Now, we know you are the man when it comes to autographs and memorabilia so how can a new revenue stream be created FOR COREY, that wouldn't involve SmorgassBored and his forty....OK that's not right. Just kidding about the SmorgassBored and his forth..... What is the best way for profits to be extracted from this unfortunate miss? This will have to be a philanthropic effort on your part.

Well Joey, because he missed the 9 ball, it would be worth $22 signed & certified.
But, had it been the 10 ball and the tournament winning shot, it would have been worth $38.

He choked....


i definitely dont think he choked
imho he was indecisive on rolling it in or drawing it back ......i think thats prolly rule # 1 in pool to be decisive ......everytime someone misses it isnt necessarily cuz they choked

If you do not think that making a bad decision is "dogging it" , then you are mistaken. Physical or mental mistakes would be classified as "dogging it".
Here is a scenario for you........
You are in a high stakes game and you are facing a crucial shot. The pressure is high and it is a situation where your muscles lock up and you cant pull off the shot due to lack of muscle memory. What would you call that? "Dogging it"?;)

Now in that same high-stress/pressure packed situation where you pull off the physical side of the shot, but you make a bad decision for shape and come up short, hit a ball, etc. You have made a bad decision in a high pressure situation, in my opinion that would still be classified as "dogging it"

Just one mans opinion imo:p

Shooting a shot without deciding what to do b4 hand imo is choking...

If Johnny would have been managing Corey, that miss would have never happened. That felt would have been spotless. Why oh why don't players pick the lint off of the table is beyond me. Good enough for Johnny, good enough for me.
