I wonder how much Thorpe's FargoRate go up by just this one match?

I think Thorpe only had a two pack? It was dominating, but it really was his break that killed Wu. He did get a few rolls but nothing dramatic. What's a bigger deal is that Wu missed a couple of easy balls for a player of his caliber.


Pressure makes diamonds. Fire refines gold.

Play it like you mean it.

Playing Cue: Predators, Diveney, and looking
Break Cue: Mezz
Jump Cue: Gulyassy
Case: Instroke

I'd say Thorpe not only played well but got a few rolls. Didn't see it myself.
Right but the chance of him winning 11-1 is much lower, probably close to zero.

And is this as shocking or more shocking than Karen defeating big Ko a couple of US Opens ago?
Thorpe had 4 B&R's -- Games 2, 4, 9, and 12. So Wu got to the table in 8 games. Thorpe got out after one dry break by Wu, several misses or fouls by Wu, and a couple of good Thorpe banks after Wu played safe or returned a push.

Keep it up Billy, I could use some coin making that wager in Iba's odds thread.

Wu will never be consider a World Champion if he can never win the big tournament abroad, away from his native area.

Yep... Me too. I can compete with 100% of the US Open field. Now, winning, that's an entirely different story
