Billy Thorpe beats Wu 11-1 - 10-23-2017, 08:41 AM

Welcome to the U.S. Open Mr. Wu!


"He knew what those jubilant crowds did not know, but could have learned from books; that the plague bacillus never dies or disappears for good...and that perhaps the day would come when, for the bane and the enlightening of men, it would rouse up its rats again and send them forth to die in a happy city."

What's the chance of this result given their fargo ratings? less than 1%?

Jay is sweating now. In the action room he picked Wu to go further than anybody else (but it's not over yet).

It wasn't me. I'm not there this year

Commentary is a tough gig, and sometimes, the commentary has a different goal than to commentate to knowledgeable players.

Can anyone provide a quick rundown? Did Billy drop a big pack of racks on the table?
Was safety play an issue?

Did Wu even get to the table?


And is this as shocking or more shocking than Karen defeating big Ko a couple of US Opens ago?

And one more question. Would Simeng Chen defeat both of them?

Just checked it out on the Fargorate site the odds in a race to 11.

Thorpe 760 14.2% likelihood of winning.
Wu 827 85.8% likelihood of winning

I'd say Thorpe not only played well but got a few rolls. Didn't see it myself.
