    Biado vs Chang Jung Lin free live stream

    There's a lot of really good Filipino players that are unknown to many of us. Efren is in local action almost daily, getting the wild 9 ball plus games on the wire in 10 ball. And Efren is still shooting well.

    DAZN petty charge

    In my experience with DAZN, the sure-fire way to cancel the subscription was to use their "chat". All my other methods failed.

    Can a player hit down ?

    Would it be a catastrophe if the 8-ball and rotation games rule-makers just eliminated the double-hit on the cue ball rule? I say - "Let 'em play on" if it is a single stroke (not a push), and the cue tip doesn't hit the object ball. Slow-motion camera shows many double-hits for previously...

    Interesting FB post about FargoRate

    My understanding is that FargoRate incorporates some aspect of the Exponentially Weighted Moving Average method. The 'k' value chosen in the formula affects how much the final FargoRate number is affected by recent results vs older results. FargoRate would consider their 'k' value to be...

    Best "race to" quantity

    I seem to remember that the statisticians at work wouldn't even consider a study if the performance of something vs another was different from each other... unless I had more than 20 samples (comparison data). If I had less than 20, then it would be difficult to determine a statistically...

    The break seemed to be a definite advantage for some players, such as Kaci. I expect that the 50% breaker won stat will improve with experience. My opinion is that this event was more exciting to watch.

    Efren playing daily in the Philippines

    For several months, I've been enjoying watching Efren in almost daily money 10-ball matches (typically races to about 20) with all the up and coming young players in the Philippines. Many opponents have no FargoRate. Efren's speed is every bit of his current 775 Fargo; he rarely dogs shots, his...
