Don't worry about it.. Richard is strong enough. He's capable of playing a perfect match, if the balls roll right. Don't judge these guys too much by the propoolvideo.com matches, as a lot of times they are playing in very humid conditions, on funky tables.

Everyone has a bad match every once in a while.

Dunno about Chip, but Richard is good enough to have won one or two regional events.

You are kidding right? Broumpton is a strong British player with lots of top finishes in regional tournaments to his credit.

I don't know Klein but he made banks, strong safeties, two rail kicks etc.

C players can't make 5 balls in a row with any regularity let alone shoot lockup safeties.

A bit of a hyperbole, by the Doktor. They're clearly having an off day, but playing around shortstop speed.

I saw Richard play the UPA event at Normandine casino last year and when Chip lived in San Diego, I watched him play frequently. Both players are more than capable of winning a regional event and doing well in any event that they play. Knowing Chip, if he saw the camera it probably made him a little nervous. He's shy that way:) .

nice, thanks guys just wondering how people would rate them in the video because there is always so much talk about how different people rate each other A+/-, B +/- etc, and ya i figured the camera would make them play a little off from nerves, hell i get nervous when someone just watches me play let alone a video camera
