    SJM at the US Open --- The Play Itself and the Social Experience

    great sum up as usual. what's your take on the one ball racked on the spot even with the template? also how do you compare this to the 2019 USO both as an experience and in terms of quality of play? i was amazed by the accuracy of the top players. i thought tight pockets and high pressure...

    Judd is bad for pool

    i believe selby won his 8-ball finals on an 8ft english pool table. the chinese 8-ball players may be a force to reckon with. gareth potts can play 9-ball very well and chu bingjie is one of the best position players in the world. i think those would fare better than snooker players tbh

    SJM Sizes Up the Matchroom 2021 US Open

    TV in general is losing ground to streaming platforms. netflix, prime, hbo, etc. sports will be going the same way. i used to watch snooker on eurosport cable, now i watch it on the player on which i can pick and choose what table to watch.

    absolutely amazing feat. i was rooting for yapp and lost a few bucks but i admire anyone who does a comeback like carlo did. and he did it twice. a true champion.

    yapp is flawless so far, 100%

    don't follow that reasoning really, carlo makes many mistakes, yapp is almost flawless and that's what i think it will come down to. with that said carlo is (alongside raga) the most feared pool warrior in the philipines for a good reason. but my money is on yapp here

    Judd is bad for pool

    i would say mark gray is the most successful snooker convert, followed by tony drago. both of them practiced pool more than snooker by the time they were at their pool playing heights. to think judd trump could beat elite pool players without dedicating himself to pool is ludicrous

    JUMP CUE ISSUE SOLVED ?

    it has been tried, in the world pool series i believe.

    Why does a player have to call an extension if there is a referee?

    i mostly agree. but to the latter statement i would add that pool was cancelled from tv. i can't imagine bergman, kaci, fedor or kazakis dragging out matches to eternity reversing that. it needs to be a sellable product and the shot clock helps to make it that.

    I bought a KONLLEN Amazon CF cue to try

    that may be a bit aggravating but i think the afterburner in the shaft makes up for it

    US Open 9-ball updates thread..

    that's my main takeaway from watching yapp. it's very rare that he misses. he missed a combo vs svb and a few early balls against edgie, but overall his TPA must be the highest in the tournament. his kicking game is top notch too, and he breaks very well. haven't seen him jump much but i bet...
