I am a big fan of SVB and Filler. They are both legendary. Neither are invincible.

We all love the idea that a superhero will come along that is better than everyone else in the world, and will...

Am I correct in understanding that last year was rack the 9 on the spot and this year was rack the 1 on the spot?

If so, I think one of the issues the US had in recent years past was not being...

Josh is the real thing. I don't know anyone that would be the favorite against him right now.

His firepower is top notch, and all parts of his game are developed to a high level. His real secret...

Stop

Thank you for your reply.

You say the cue ball only seems to stop on a short draw shot. Maybe so. But why is it so easy to stop the cue ball? It seems like there is a huge margin of error on...

Easier

It feels like there is more resistance to getting the cue ball started when Iím dead straight, like the cue ball wants to stop dead and it takes a little extra oomph to get it moving. With a slight...

Thank you for the replies.

Iíll have to play with it more. It does seem easier to me so hope to hear more thorough explanation either validating or debunking.

This has proven to be a close contest so far. I think it is silly to think either side has a huge advantage on today's line-up.

Using a slight angle to make it easier to draw short distances

I was doing a drill yesterday in which I started with ball in hand and the first shot demanded I draw back very accurately about 4-6". My preference on this of course was not shooting with a low tip...

I used to struggle with my breathing so I’ve since eliminated it from my game altogether. Less variables to manage. ;)

Look, I am a big fan of SVB and bet on him in this match, but let's not be too quick to call Dennis washed up.

I was speaking in general terms. Chang is an exceptional player that was close to 40% and won in a race to 50.

I'm not suggesting that he wouldn't win in a longer set, simply that I'd expect his...
