Probably same start time 5pm as the undercard match
This will go around 230 racks. so about 7 to 8 hours per day which means they have to start earlier than 7pm

Crazy that one can't find start times.

Century?? Eh...I wish it were one pocket, I just can’t get into these long rotation races. The case maker getting robbed by the retiree was more epic than this as far I’m concerned. Or at least more entertaining. The one thing that is amazing to watch in these long races is the focus and concentration put out by two world class athletes.

Roy claims estimated cost for this match is $35K which includes record appearance fees paid to both players (at least $10K each ?)

Attachment 533645

Also one player is apparently betting a considerable amount of his own $$. I wonder who is it? :D

They are also trying to figure out how to loop the video so that we all need not watch live for long periods. Good luck with the inflexible audiovideoweb.com platform

Not a big fan of such long races also and much prefer watch major tournaments. More an endurance race and a narcissistic circus act by 2 players. But I will still tune in to watch parts LOL :thumbup::

lol 35k in production costs for a gambling match? whatever makes people happy.

Do you have to purchase the entire event or can it be bought in days?


Also, what's the daily race to? 20? 25?

Is it winner breaks?

Have to purchase whole event all 3 days for $39.95 which is not attractive. They should have daily pass with final day price higher than first 2 days. But in such long long races, the first couple of days are usually "boring" so people usually buy final day which is why they only sell whole event.
I think with previous long races, they split the race by number of days so in this case probably 40, 80, 120. The danger with that is one player could be leading by big margin till last day and other player closes gap, they could end up with countless number of games and a long final day
Yes it is winner breaks

Yes, all I see now is the 3-day pass for (essentially) $40. But I think I saw it yesterday or the day before also offered by the day -- about $15 for each of Days 1 and 2 and $20 for Day 3. Either I was looking at some other event, or I was dreaming, or they changed their minds.

[or it is still available by the day, and I just haven't found it]

Daily passes are now available for $14.95 (Day 1, Day 2). Day 3 is $19.95.

Match of century. Catchy, anything for the sale.

jay helfert 11-05-2019 09:15 PM

When all is said and done this will be a very interesting match. Just about everyone thinks Shane is unbeatable in a long match like this. That is, everyone but Dennis and his backers. This match and it's outcome will be about more than just good pool playing and a hard break shot. This is a real test of endurance and stamina as well. I suspect we will see ebbs and flows throughout the course of the match. Remember it was in such a match (race to 120) that Efren made his storied comeback against Earl.

This is exactly what those people who complain that a single race to eleven is not long enough to determine the better player have been asking for. We will all get a chance to see if Dennis' reputation as a great money player is deserved or not. He is testing himself in a very long race against the best there is today, according to most folks.

Which one of the two is betting a large amount on himself?

Not Dennis. He is betting on himself, but he doesn't have deep pockets.
