fire v. ice, leggo!


A billiard table is that richest of metaphors,
by turns a theatre, an altar, touchstone, gauntlet,
ritual ground, a gunfighter's high noon, a refuge,
a verdant landscape for balls to scatter and rest in meaningful synchronicity,
a classroom, a karma dance, mirror of moods, a guide and trusted friend...

Looks like a really nice place for pool.

If Roy asks for donation like Filler v Aranas , they should do quite well. I would think this will draw even more viewers. Filler v Aranas was around 4.5K views
Donations they collected at least $16K+
Add some sponsorships
Each player around at least $7K to $8K

I like the matchup and I like the idea
players get paid, we get entertained
on some level, everybody wins!

The free stream and asking for donations appears to be the better marketing tool for these matches. When you have several thousand pool fans watching and enjoying the match, the donations can be substantial, much better than a couple hundred hard core fans who have to pay each day.

Jay, I whole-heartily agree.
And the streamers don't have to worry about refunding people if there are technical issues.
The viewers pay for the product based on it's value AFTER they've sampled it.
Much better idea than ppv, and the fan-base will grow considerably if the product is performing well.
Hence more tips ("donations" ). It's a win-win.

Loved the Styer stream, was able to jump in and watch intermittently as Time and children allowed without any complicated log in. I definitely donated to Ra and will for this one also.

Filler can play 8b. He did very well when Darren Appleton had those 8b tournaments a few yrs again.

I agree...I think this is a good model for poolís future.
...creates a lot more supporters.....and more financial supporters also.

Making a deal with TV can be like dealing with a hustler.

Lionize your game.

If pool players had to have knowledge of geometry and physics before talking about geometry and physics, all of the aiming threads would disappear.

If they are playing 8 ball, I'd probably rather see them play on a bar table. They will still run out a lot, but at least they would have to break up some tie ups.

I'd rather that they play 10 ball on a 9 footer with tight pockets, but I guess Bergman doesn't like his chances in that game.

Regardless, they need a shot clock- 30 seconds a shot at maximum. I like Bergman, but he takes too long to shoot.
