He was a mistake and a roll away from another major win. And he seemed gracious. He brushed off the last 9-ball slopped in with, "it's 9-ball." He also slopped in a ball late, but for sure his was more plausible, and he still had to run out the rest of the (easy) rack.

Either way, I have to believe that 90% of viewers were pulling for Earl. I was.

Unless it is running a 9b rack, nothing takes a minute with that bad mofo.

My boss' wife texted me while I was driving and I replied with, "Just call me". It was autocorrected into, "Just cucumber me". That's not a word I ever type and it got a few confused stares and laughter.

Oh ... and good job by Earl; he was playing very well. I didn't have a favorite and was happy to see either of them win.

It doesn't matter if you win or lose, it's whether or not you beat the spread.

Apparently when asked for an interview he said Iím not doing an interview. I didnít win nothing lol


I liked seeing earl play with no bullshit on his hand or arms. Just playing pool.. He plays such a different style then anyone else seems to any more. All the pros and great amateurs try to keep it simple as possible when Playing position but he has no problem spinning it all over the place. Itís fun to watch.


Player........... road line with 12.9 revo and 314/3
Break cue.... bk3
jump cue..... Fury
Case............ Molinari butterfly

If you live with one foot in the future and one in the past you'll piss all over the present.

i think that less weights and gadgets is a sign of a healthier mental state as well. the pros need to watch out.. if earl gets his shit together he will be a threat in any tournament

It was good to see Earl Strickland playing excellent pool at this tournament.
I assumed he had retired because of his age, but it looks like he can still mix it up with the tour guys.

Even in recent times, nobody has ever questioned whether Earl, one of the most gifted players in our sport's history, can turn back the clock on occasion and magically become the Earl of old. Sustaining that level for a whole tournament, however, is something Earl hasn't been able to do for years, but he did so at Turning Stone, and it's hard not to be intrigued by the possibilities.

Congratulations, Earl. Well played.
