    World Pool Masters --- May 6-9, 2023 (location TBC)

    That's already quite a roster, I'd say, with many big guns. Hopefully all of them retain (or gain) form, come May. I'd love to see a couple of Asian players filling the wildcard spots. Filipinos, Taiwanese, or even go dig the best of the Chinese players (I believe they must have been playing...

    World Pool Masters --- May 6-9, 2023 (location TBC)

    Obviously, as them Matchroom say, the list of participants was revealed during the last day of 9-ball Worlds in Kielce (February 2023). However, as them Matchroom say, two spots are left for wildcards. Note that Mohammad Soufi, the sensational runner-up of the Worlds, won some heart(s) to...

    Jeremy Jones and Karl Boyes. I also think Phil Yates is there in the booth with occasional remarks.

    In one of the interviews Drago explained the reason he was playing that fast: "I'm just afraid I lose that aiming line!" Recently I've seen just the same explanation from one of the speed shooters, don't remember either the name or even the game (very well that might have been snooker)

    "I probably need to ask the sponsor double their bonus money for me to continue using this black piece of" :) And Wu Kun Lin is playing with a wooden either. So does Duong of Vietnam. All of them finished higher than Joshua.

    Poor JJ, he's just called that purple ball they are using here "a four", only to excuse himself when he realized he's in a parallel universe. LOL. Not the first time he gets his mind messed up. Well, he's been playing all his life with proper colors, so that's totally understandable.

    Oh, maybe soon the promoters will discover the beauty of a color that is completely new to pool. That's GREEN! :LOL:

    Particularly off the rail. That last safety by FSR was good enough in terms of cue ball control, parked the whitey right where it belonged on that shot. There is obvious swing of momentum. Mario might be in trouble from now on, as Sanchez Ruiz tasted blood and could see the finish line before...

    FSR performance in the quarters vs Chang Jun Lin woudl be a nice starter. He just ran over the opponent. The more surprizing is such a contrast overnight.

    True. Unfortunately Wiki articles on some minor things (like pool) are written by enthusiasts. I recall one of them in English segment must have been AZB's own @JAM . Dunno if she's still in the business there, as she was complaining about editorial stuff is a pain in the arse at Wiki. I've...

    His nickname is El Ferrari for a good reason ;)

    Rack 13 of the Wu vs Soufi semi got a short close-up of the chalk cube Wu Kun Lin uses. It must be made either in China or Taiwan, and most notable about it is the color - it is purple! 😈

    Yeah, MR seemed to come out with a positive. That's in regard to the 9-ball break, where the shot does not decide the outcome to such an extent as a break with no restrictions. Even with a template players don't get a roadmap that often. Which brings more actual play to the game, not just a...

    It is Taka Wu standing behind the photo camera for MR events recently. Yes, the pics are colorful. That said, I miss the time when it was JP Parmentier doing this job for MR. He's been also responsible for the artwork of all the banners for their announcements back then.

    Just adds to the strange diversity of how MR handles the format. Well, means there's room for improvement :sneaky:

    For current and future events. this Time Converter will come handy. It improved a lot in a couple of years or so. You just enter the locations you are willing to compare, and then you can tweak the exact time as you wish (like the time when the session starts, for example)

    After you posted this Jay I started to pay notice and must say JJ never calls it a push out. Weird :)

    To add to the consistency, here's the graphics mistakenly showing it is Shaw at the table (white triangle). Been like that throughout the whole rack.

    From what I know, Greg has been trying different things over time, and always asked the players' opinion. We remember times when the shelves were so deep that the hanging ball was impossible to reach shooting rail first. Then finally I recall from on of Greg's interviews, they agreed on some...
