I believe that, in pool, arachnophobia would be defined as the fear of Jeanette Lee.

I'd say that in his day he was a top 20 player on the big tables but probably not a top 10. On the barbox in the 1980s, only Buddy H, Keith M, and Danny Medina could keep up with him, and in the...

Must assume we're not talking about the big cue ball here, as running balls is super-tough when the cue ball is bigger than the other balls.

Just once, perhaps about 12 years ago, a straight pool...

Yeah, I'm enjoying DAZN, too. At a cost of $100 for a full year, it's a bargain.

If you enjoyed Jose Garcia's commentary, great, but for me, that's a guy with a huge amount of technical knowledge of 14.1 who did almost nothing to share it during that match.

The pros don't earn their living at 14.1. Those having access to a table during the pandemic would surely opt to stay sharp at the games at which they can earn a living.

They are both very good, but I'd rate Billy Incardona as better than both of them.

The play was entertaining, and watching these legends is always a treat.

The commentary was pretty bad. Billy is a legend at commentating both rotation games and one pocket, but his straight pool...

Gomez, who has come 5th and 3rd in the last two Derby City 1-pocket events, is a superb one-pocket player and is the favorite in this spot.

On the contrary, the straighter shooter's advantage is reduced on a small table. FYI, Corey Deuel drilled Josh Filler in a race to 30 at Derby City in 2019 playing 8-ball on a bar table.

Agreed 100%. The Mosconi Cup brand won't suffer at all, nor would it suffer in any way from cancellation of the event.

Good for you, Bob. I have my event tickets and a place to stay in London, but I'm not booking the flights until I'm sure this is happening. Like you, I'm not very optimistic.

I've not seen Richie since the 1980's and only knew him as "Richie from the Bronx" back then. Classy shooter. Hope he's OK but fear the worst.
