Why is it rack your own given their history, for craps sake.

I'll take Shane, better temperament, especially in long matches.

The real question has just been asked ^^^^^

For those that don't know the reference, it's from 2018 Derby.

We've been around this game way too long.

I have some problems with this set-up.
Shorter sets ďbest ofĒ is far more watchable....race to 100 (watching live) should be part
of the community service penalty you got from an understanding judge.
...how about races to 15.....best 4 out of 9 sets?

And Van Boening is TWO words...not one word like on the poster.

...nobody likes there name spelled incorrectly.
When you see a small mistake this early...it makes you wonder how many more small
things are going to add up to a frustrating experience.


Lionize your game.

Given the fact they are both 'represented' by the same 'agent', it has to happen, right?

Are they not under contractual obligation to play where their agent places them?

Are there not consequences for breaching the contract?

From my understanding (which could be wrong), the betting line is determined by the bookies and it changes whenever the betting becomes lop sided. From a bookies standpoint, they want the bets to be split 50/50 between both sides. So they adjust the betting anytime it becomes unbalanced.

For example:

Week 1: Match is announced; 60% SVB, 40% Shaw
Week 2: Shaw is given 5 games on wire; 45% SVB, 55% Shaw
Week 3: Shaw's spot is reduced to 3 games on wire; 48% SVB, 52% Shaw
Week 4: Shaw's spot is reduced to 2 games on wire; 50% SVB, 50% Shaw

I rarely bet on major sporting events so maybe I could be missing something here. It just seems unusual that the betting lines were determined, and printed on the flyer, without any side bets being taken. This is like the NFL releasing a superbowl advertisement with a betting line on it. It's unusual to say the least.

How were these numbers determined? Will they change? The betting line only matters to the people taking bets, right? Who is taking bets?

I could be wrong but I donít believe moneymatch prompters or any other entity is taking actual bets at any line. I hypothesize they printed it on the poster for fun only.

All the side betting in recent pool history has been side better to side better with no book or juice involved.

It seems both arenít playing their best right now, but I think Shaw has a higher top gear- whether he reaches it or not is the question

Iím surprised. I have never seen anyone reach a higher gear than SVB in 10 ball.

Filler might be hotter. Chang more consistent. SVB may not be at his peak. But I think he is undisputed champ for big stretches of high level of play with lots of 2-4s in this format.

What was their first race to 100? 100-92 and year played 2013? Iím going by memory on both.

Also, when was the last race to 100 match promoted by anyone? I remember Shane Dennis TAR to 100. Was that the last one?
