Much better format to stream & for side action on every set.
Exactly.

100 is such an arbitrary number that people with a limited understanding of variance pulled out of the air in an effort to come up with a format that "evens out the rolls"

You can make a flat bet....and bet on every individual match.

Has anybody ever watched the whole match in a race to 100?
Many times

Question Filler - 11-29-2019, 04:08 PM

Maybe Filler is the new King. He sure didn't look very noble when Skylar handed him his defeat and brought the Cup Trophy home for Team USA.

I don't think any knowledgeable pool junkie thinks two five game matches gives one the right to the "King's Crown".

I can see where he gets his swollen head from though. China Open, World 9 Ball and US Open in a three year period would do that to any one. As Shane said, Filler has been an unstoppable force for awhile.

Time is the test and we will see where he is in a few years. Right now he is hungry and has the competitive drive and edge and talent.

Maintaining that year after year, tournament after tournament, match after match, game after game and shot after shot will show if he is the King. Him and Shane are headed towards a match up, I look forward to seeing it.

And guess what, you can continue watching 25% of them.

Watch what you want and turn it off, just like the rest of the world.

You put up the $$$ and you can have them race to 1 if you want.

He's the world #1 right now, plain and simple, and that makes him King.

Tomorrow, next week, next year, has nothing to do with today.

If you're talking about longevity, that's an entirely different thing, and only time will give us the answer.

Good post.

Filler 5 - 0 bs Shane
Filler 3 - 5 vs Sky

Filler 18 - 6 vs America seems pretty Kingly to me.

One loss and all of a sudden he's a chump lol

Filler may be an unstoppable object, but Shane is an immovable force...

Let's see what happens when they collide in a decent sized race...

Say what you want, but IMHO Joshua Filler is the best player I saw out there this week. He just does almost everything a little bit better and with less effort than anyone else. Skyler hung in there and was strong enough mentally to take full advantage when Josh made a couple of errors. Believe me, all pool players know who the better player is! Usually they act accordingly, but not this time. It doesn't matter that Filler might get the best of Skyler in the long run. What matters is he didn't do it yesterday when all the marbles were on the line! Just my two cents as always.

I agree he just simply does so many things better than others consistently and does it quickly,, I'm not so sure they all see him as him being better , but he is , I'm more than sure the window is wide open for Sky for a long set for big cash I'm even more sure your not taking him if that were to happen,,,
But it's Sky's day and on any given day in a short race no one bar none has to like it , I can remember him at the Xbo beating a top player here and dusting him , I was baffled on how easy it was for him mind boggling he was still playing APA
I walked over to a friend and said I just saw a future world class player , as I did Thorpe , called for both to be on the team when Wilson took over a lot of people here didn't agree , I'm happy for these young men and it's been a pleasure to see them grow into the players they have become

Never. Usually bits and pieces. If it is close, will watch most of last day.
One thing's for sure, I do more work during these long races than during major tournaments.

Correct. If the number is 200 or 1000 , it could be different winner so why isnít it race to 200 or 1000? Also at best it proves who is better player or had better hair day on those days. If they play another day, it could be different winner.
Many sports cos donít play long races. No need to cos they look at head to head record, titles, rankings to evaluate who is better player cos that is performance over period of time not just performance over a few days.
