Europe were shaken, only Albin was good and produced some shots worthy of his caliber.

Jayson was classless, he was so afraid he played to pot the ball only and take on any shot he had, and he still scream about it.

I did not think Kaci were human until today.


Previous Mosconi's, USA made it easy for EUROPE because they were ill-prepared, and could not pose any pressure. this time, keep the pressure up and see who crack. I am happy I stay up all night here to watch it.
Agree on Jayson and he has the worst mental game of anyone on either team. He needs to be making every shot, which he often does, but if he falters, he tends to falter further.

Did you see the guy with the Shaw T-shirt? A pic of Jayson with the copy that said, "Shaw me the money."

it was actually 3 - 1 at one british bookie. and i didn't bet a cent..

euro can still win though, but it's getting obvious that kaci is not performing well. i missed his last match but from what i have seen he lacks mosconi mettle

Trying to force the cue ball on that 8-ball shot, attempting to get Shaw an easier shot on the 9-ball and rattling it out was completely unexcuseable. When you have a partner like Shaw, and on generous pockets like these, just cinch it and leave him a slightly tougher shot and very likely he would have had no problem making it. That missed shot severely changed the momentum in that match. In his doubles match, Thorpe played a few loose/risky safeties that didn't work out, but they still managed to win. Other than that, Woodward's miss on the shape and then missing the very makeable cut shot on the 7-ball in the 7th game of that opening match yesterday was really the only real mistake I've seen that cost the US. Otherwise, we've played very solid.
Yep... like I said yesterday. Play this table like a bar box. If you get a little out of line just focus on rolling it in The position on the next ball doesn’t have to be perfect with these generous pockets.


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.

Same could be said about Shane year after year.

I think Tyler did not miss a ball in the team match nor play a bad safety nor have any break that was not perfect. But I think he also did not shoot any shot. His first opponent ran out and it did not get around to him a second time. Oh, yeah, he didn't fail to freeze the lag in that match either.

So, what is the proper way to score that?

At least Alex Pagulayan got to lag against Kaci.

I guess I have been out of touch for too long. I used to like Shaw. I watched the first match yesterday and he was a complete bag of dicks. Totally turned me off. I really hope he never wins again.

Funny how he mentioned social media motivating him after his wife telling him everyone thought Shane had his number...wonder what she will tell him after he is being skewered for his behavior yesterday.

In reality, I bet they are encouraged to act out to some extent, but the over the top celebrations after EVERY RACK is not fitting a champion of his caliber.

You can show emotion and celebrate while STILL showing some respect to your opponent. Shaw hasn't figured this out yet and probably never will.

As Bob said, he didn't get to shoot in the Teams match.

He has played just twice -- a win (5-3) in singles against Feijen and a win (5-2) in doubles with Thorpe against Shaw and Kaçi.

If we ignore his "loss" in the Teams match, Styer and Ouschan are the only two players undefeated through two days.

Styer vs Ouschan in a singles match on Day 4 would be fireworks. They are both playing the best out of their respective teams and they're very similar in terms of style and cadence.
