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?
You do realize the odds/games do not change for the people who have already bet dont you? In your example the bets do not equal 50/50 at the end of 4 weeks (most likely).

I have to agree with this right here.
Shane recently played Siming Chen in Vegas and what made it interesting and competitive was the 7 sets, each race to 11 over 3 days
You could feel the pressure right from the start and the players' performance, I believe, was all the better for it.

Shane and Shaw, same format would be a pressure cooker waiting to boil over, and engaging for the fans all the same.

Long race - 08-07-2019, 12:39 PM

I think if the two of them played like a dozen racers to 100 we may see a clear winner as far as who is best, but maybe not as they are both great. I had some Tar matches and lost them when my old computer crashed, damn it.

The one with Shane and Dennis looked brutal for Dennis, mostly because of Shane's killer break.

Any more I prefer a best of match with shorter races to 21 and win by two games required.

I also think that with todays interest in 9 and 10 Ball and the many top tier players a big tournament draws, it is hard to say who is best at 9 and 10 ball. But, that Filler guy has racked up some very impressive big tournament wins in a short time.

If Filler can keep the competitive edge going, he will only get smarter and more better! For sure he makes shot making look easy.

Race to 100000 is getting old.
First of all , it isn't really race to 100 if they take long sleep break each day. True Race to 100 is race to 100 without any sleep except short toilet, meals breaks. I would watch all 3 days if it is True Race to 100 , that would be interesting
Secondly, sets of shorter ensures best performances from both. If someone leads by 20 racks in this race to 100, it is 99% of the time over and no one will watch remaining days

They are apparently "barking" at each other at least according to the promoter. Though I see another typo in Shaw's comment likely by the promoter or tangled words by Shaw "there is no way he can't beat me now"

Those odds, money lines, games on the wire and over/under are truly a fantasy.

If anybody likes Shaw for those lines or the over, PM me.

Freudian slip. Shaw knows he's the dog in this one.

On a side note, I am gonna play a friend of mine a set of 9b. Anyone want to bet on it? Either side is fine. We, errrr I don't care.

Race to 100 really is boring. There is zero intensity until a player reaches around 85 or 90.

Would be fishy if MMP is also collecting bets
Has there ever been any stable manager/agent putting up match between both his horses?

I'd also like to comment on these "stables". Come on, do any of you think for a second there are any allegiances to a "stable". Pool players are independent. That is the whole reason they are pool players and don't have a straight job. That is the whole reason pool players can't stand leagues, there is a commitment with leagues of you have to be at location xyz for ijk hours. You can do whatever the hell you want if you are a real pool player. Any of these player in this or other "stables" will sure as shit play any match under the sun if they have a backer, any backer, whether that backer is some random dude off the street or another "stable".

The Pinoy players appear to be pretty loyal, a decade ago you had quite a few in the islands that were active.

Domestically, I'd mainly agree with you, though the allegiances seem to be on/off, based on geographical location of the player. Of course, we don't really know where the post comes from.
