    SVB vs Chang Update Thread

    I really don't have interest in arguing about this all night. I'll just say that the situation you're describing (people saying Alex P is not Canadian because he's Filipino) really has nothing to do with what we're talking about. In Alex's case, he immigrated to Canada from the Philippines, and...

    SVB vs Chang Update Thread

    I guess any bets on future long races like this should always have some kind of clause saying what the parties want to do in the event that the race terms change before it ends.

    SVB vs Chang Update Thread

    Of course no country is a monolith and everyone has their own opinions. The point I was making is that the ROC is not the same thing as the PRC. Just because it has China in the name doesn't mean that you should call the Ko brothers Chinese...

    Judd is bad for pool

    Thanks for the clarification -- that's helpful to know. Still, beating two 620 players and then one 728 is not much of an accomplishment, since he essentially didn't even face a pro until his fourth round.

    Judd is bad for pool

    Winning his first three rounds in the US Open isn't really an accomplishment, though, since those rounds were basically dead money. His first match, he beat Joe Magee (FR: 367), second round he beat Dhruvalkumar Patel (FR: 411), and third round he beat Abdullah Alshammari (FR: 728). I doubt...

    Yes, in 2017, Deuel, Thorpe, Woodward, Shane, and Bergman all made the final 16 (https://www.azbilliards.com/tournament/7727-u-s-open-9-ball-championship/). Please fact check yourself before posting...

    SVB gambles as much as anyone. Not sure what point you think you're making here... Also I don't believe this is even true. Sky Woodward has made the final 16 in 2018 or thereabouts.

    What evidence do you have that gambling is what's holding back American pros? And if gambling is so bad for your game, how do you explain why players like Dennis Orcollo, Chang Jung Lin, Carlo Biado, etc, are so dominant?

    It's the ref's job to hear when the player calls an extension, not the other way around.

    Agreed. Nobody wants to see someone lose a match in a major tournament like this over some nonsense rule technicality. I think we all want to see someone win or lose on their playing.

    Not to mention Corey Deuel, Jeremy Jones. Many players below 800 FR have won this event.

    Shane just made two really nice banks to run out and close the gap to 3-2.

    WORLD 10 BALL CHAMPIONSHIP (6-10 Sep 2021), Las Vegas, 9ft, Winner $35K

    The world 9 ball final match between Chang and Gorst was completely unwatchable for this very reason. It's a shame when the biggest event in pool isn't even exciting enough to get die hard pool fans like myself to watch.
