is pretty good, and I also felt when Efren missed the 8 ball, Rodney probably had a little passing thought in his head that said, "I can win this match".

You're right though, that 2 ball kick was a superb shot by anyone's standards along with the resulting shape after he made it. Rodney knew about and probably concerned about 'Efren's bag of tricks', and that probably struck a little fear in Rodney. As every good Pool player is aware, it only takes something small at the time to start turning the tide the other way.

Rodney also made a mistake the way he played the table when the 5/13 were tied up just uptable from the side pocket. He got the wrong shape on the 6 ball, but I thought he should have shot the 6 before the 7 and come off the rail after making the 7 to get on the 5, which would have cut directly into the side pocket.

And every good player knows where that head ball hit is, especially after doing it once, that causes the cue ball to go into the side or corner pocket, and he did not make the proper adjustment in his break to counteract for it.
