Ditto, Jay.

Jeremy Sossei is the best player of the last ten years or so not to play on a Mosconi Cup team.

For quite a long time, he was the third best player on the Joss Tour, which I...

I'll go a step further. Almost all of Earl's major titles came before his switch to Cuetec in, I'm guessing, 1999. I do believe, though, that his stellar effort at the 2002 World Nine Ball...

Very solid field. It will take some pretty fancy shooting to win this title.

Good luck to all these fine players.

Nice post that is generally valid.

I made the point earlier about the breaking in Post #12, so we're together on that.

Agreed that tight pockets would have never slowed Earl down, and they...

What those who didn't see Earl in his prime missed is that he didn't just mass produce titles, but usually won them undefeated. The other thing worth noting is how often Earl used to crush really...

As a fan of Team USA, I'd rather see Feijen or Souquet than Gorst, as I see Gorst as far more dangerous. It's bizarre that winning the European 9-Ball Championships, which in Gorst's case required...

I've not seen much of Thorsten this year, but based on his placings, it would be hard to justify his selection. Here's a recap of hi s 2019, according to AZB statistics.

I'm inclined to look at Shaw a bit more favorably, and that's because he showed top level form in the two biggest events of the year. His placings might belie the quality of his play, but let's take...

Yes, that's the shot. He plows through a few loose balls with follow and somehow finds the carom angle and speed for position on the black. You could see from his facial expression before the shot...

I don't think a 147 is any tougher than a run of 200 in straight pool or a six pack in 9-ball. Many non-professionals snooker players have had a 147 break.

Truly amazing! Can you believe the shot he made on the red when the break stood at 80? The position play on that shot was otherworldly.

Very interesting. This clip is of the old, and within two years of death, Mosconi. It does show that the rules are sometimes bent during an exhibition, but I'm still not sure what to make of it.
