I read Earl's opinion of the best 9-ball players once, and he had Louie and Wimpy on it. A few others also, but I'm not remembering the others. He did leave himself off the list, iirc.

Great equipment! May it serve you well and for a long time.

In Shane's first US Open year, 2003, I watched him play Marco Marquez 8 ahead for his apparently standard bet back then, $2,000. He broke and ran 5, and won the next two to get on the hill. Marco got...

The commentators in this match said Shane was up 21 games on Shaw and Shaw came back to tie or take the lead (not sure which they said0. What was the final margin for that one? More or less than this...

One year the old Open used the Delta metal racks, and boy what a racket they caused. Ting ting ting, going on constantly. Too much noise for my taste, and they switched by the following year.

I feel the same way (and I was confident Filler would beat Shaw to reach the finals, also).

I was a bit shocked that both of them had blunders at key late stages of their last matches. Which shows...

Very good points, and thank you. Frankly I snoozed on the shot clock expiration issue and didn't realize that was also occurring.

In the same match, iirc, Shaw brushed a hanging 8 with the back...

I see your point, but since all the racking was done by refs and it was also their responsibility to remove the rack by rule, it is a player acting outside of the set rules also.

As always,...

Actually, Shane barely lost those matches without his best game, grinding it out anyway.

He was scratching on the break a lot against Mika, and when leading 10-9 vs. Lechner, he not only dry broke...

Thanks for the example. I don't know pool history back that far, but from what I have learned about Nick Varner in general, that's credible.

But then it is more like the exception that proves the...

Pete Fleming told me this week that a race to 11 (and even to 13) isn't long enough to determine if the winner is better at these high competition levels. Especially when it goes hill-hill or loser...

So I'm walking down the main stairs and I hear a voice from below, around the corner, saying 'if anyone messes with you, I'll f-ing kill them. You're with me!'

I was a little surprised to see him motor into the elevator in a Little Rascal type scooter. Although, come to think of it, I never saw him otherwise except sitting in front of his cues.

I'm pretty sure this was the occasion when something else also happened you may not have seen.

What do you mean, 'we' missed it, smorg rep? :smile:

I didn't miss it. The last two games played (before game 21) turned on some insane kicks out of safety hooks. The last one Shane did may have...

I'm going tomorrow and staying through to the end. That's my pattern there since 2002, the hurricane year when Soquet won. Those years at the Chesapeake venue were the best, I agree. The Sheraton...

No worries. Leave it be-- it's just Pooltown, Jake. :)
