Tony Drago and Earl are my top two. So natural and fluent. Currently I like Joshua Filler, SVB and Rodney Morris. Pretty much dislike the whole 2018 European Mosconi Cup team, too slow to do anything.

I've watched Mike Sigels 150 ball run against Zuglan more times than I care to remember, dissecting his patterns and position play. For Entertainment I love watching vintage Strickland, Reyes (obviously) and Filler. I like to watch Natural players when I want to be entertained. When I want to learn from present day players, I watch Feijen and Souquet who are more deliberate and easier to analyze.

There are many other great players, but I watch theses guys over and over again. There are moments of absolute greatness, and sometimes they also show that they are still human.
Anyone that entertains the crowd, whether by shooting, by talking or both. Of all the pool Iíve watched live, Keith McCready easily takes the top spot.

Probably my second choice is Bustamante, whose name I didnít see get mentioned. When heís on a table, he always is the coolest guy in the room. And did anyone notice that this over-the-hill HoFer is the current back-to-back DCC One Pocket Champion?

Lol......when i first joined, i got called out SEVERAL times about my ghost play during conversations on here.

They (certain people) dont call me out anymore...lol.

Be warned though, if you claim you "claim" that you can/did do something, well, you better have a vid, because some will call you out like they did in the old west...lol.

It a good thing, its called "accountability". Everyone should have some.

I agree there. Iíd like to see a video of everyone playing a set against the ghost or at least a few racks, right there in their signature. Hereís some info and an opinion, and this is how I play. Boom.

As far as angles, Iíve had to make some shoddy setups trying to get different views of myself playing lol. Usually with a chair and some of my daughters marker cases stacked up and other random things to get my iPad just right. I need a go pro or something like it with that clip-on contraption. Or a tripod...hmm. Anyone want to donate to a good cause? Single parent pool players are seriously at risk of brokedom.

Chris Melling. Whether it’s American, English or Chinese pool, he has superb fundamentals along with creativity that is fun to watch and a real love of the game. That said, I’ll watch anyone even if they or their game is dull as.

Sigel. I can get in stroke watching his matches. At this top...perfection.

Second is Alex P. And, if you watch footage of them - their techniques and styles are VERY similar.
