    Matchroom WNT Premier League Pool (PLP) 18-25 March2024, Connecticut, $100K Prize Fund

    Looks like they are all struggling with the 4 inch pockets. Maybe the schedule is dragging too long also. Each player should play 6 or more matches per day instead of 3 in the first stage using 4 tables even if you stream only 2. It's kinda boring watching struggling players still in the game...

    Maybe still adjusting to his new cue. He is not with Predator anymore.

    World 10-Ball Championships, Feb-Mar 2024, Las Vegas, The Rio

    I generally liked the format. I don't think shootouts should be used in a World Championship though. I do like them in the PBS. I had no problem with the commentators understanding that they are trying something new with the remote commentary to save costs. Lastly, I think the Women...

    World 10-Ball Championships, Feb-Mar 2024, Las Vegas, The Rio

    My pick is for the underdog nation that cannot produce good pool players so it only got 1 spot. Now that I said it he might lose 😆

    World 10-Ball Championships, Feb-Mar 2024, Las Vegas, The Rio

    I believe the spot shot has become the signature for the Pro Billiard Series. It's a a huge form of entertainment for spectators and hated by the players. I personally like it because it a true test of the mental fortitude of pool players. In trapshooting you have to shoot and hit the...

    World 10-Ball Championships, Feb-Mar 2024, Las Vegas, The Rio

    More sets definitely favor the stronger player so there should be "less upsets." However, if they are all 800s then it's really difficult to call a win an upset.

    World 10-Ball Championships, Feb-Mar 2024, Las Vegas, The Rio

    There isn't much luck factor in 10 ball other than rolls. The 3 sets matches have been lasting over 2 hours, which is reasonable for pool matches.

    World 10-Ball Championships, Feb-Mar 2024, Las Vegas, The Rio

    I believe if you add up the results the vast majority of the players who won the match would have won more games since they introduced the 3 set. If someone won by the first two sets then they clearly won a race to 8. If it goes to three sets without a shootout there is only one combination...

    Chezka Centeno: The Next Ga Young Kim?

    She reminds me of Jayson Shaw, being fearless in her potting abilities, but as you said she needs to work on her overall skills, which I am sure she will agree with.

    World 10-Ball Championships, Feb-Mar 2024, Las Vegas, The Rio

    Is there any explanation anywhere about how they came up with the list of players for the Men's World 10-ball event? Found it very strange that only one Filipino, Carlo Biado, is on the list. I also saw posts from Sanjin Pehlivanovic and David Alcaide expressing disappointment that they were...

    My Fargorate progression

    True at the amateur level. For the 700+, I believe the mental part of the game weighs much higher than the technical. Do you play Fargo reported tournaments that are on 9 footers or just barbox or both? Just curious.

    Best and worst commentator??

    Best are those who explain to the general audience: Tim De Ruyter, Tony Robles, Mike Yednak, Earl Strickland once he is not talking about himself, Alison Fisher, Imran Majeed, Jim Wych (sp) ... I also like Mark White for his high energy commentary. I don't like commentators who talk to each...

    Questions for Mike with FargoRate

    The question is whether a player playing ONLY in bar box (BB) tournaments and achieved a 500 FR is of equal strength to player playing ONLY in regulation table (RT - 9 footers) tournaments and achieved a 500 FR. I believe the answer based on arguments presented here would be YES because “It’s...

    Questions for Mike with FargoRate

    I would like to know what percentage of the games in the Fargo database was played on bar boxes and what percentage was played on 9 footers. BTW, when is the Podcast? I would like to listen.

    Questions for Mike with FargoRate

    They will beat a Fargo 500 who plays only on 7 footers one- handed ... how about that 😆 I am talking about people playing in good tournaments like the Joss.

    Questions for Mike with FargoRate

    Yes, I know. I was just hoping that there was some way to parse the database, but realize it might not be possible. I was just curious.

    Questions for Mike with FargoRate

    What is the Fargo Rate of the median player of those who have been active over the last 3 years? What is the Fargo Rate of the median player of those who have been active over the last 3 years only for tournaments played on 9 footers? Not sure if they can drill down to the level asked in the...
