In the filming of the match they had a cameraman with a shoulder mounted camera. He was able to get a couple good straight-on views of few shots by Kim. On these shots there's a noticeable slight crookedness to his stroke . On the chopped segments below are two examples of this:

Kim was a great champion and his accomplishments in the game speak for themselves. But perhaps this is why he played just a hair under the very best at the time.........Earl, Sigel, Buddy, etc. A slight stroke flaw like this will undoubtedly cause a miss here and there, especially pressure shots with distance.
Kim Davenport wasn't known for missing.

Totally agree Jay. He is so rock solid and just never moves an inch. I was getting ready for the US Amateur a few years back and Kim offered to help me prepare for a few minutes after a round of golf. After watching me play for a bit, he did very little more than making sure my primary focus was staying down through the shot and hitting center ball more often. The next 3 weeks I played the best pool of my life and he busted me through what had been a very long lasting plateau. Forever grateful and just wish I had been around to see him in his prime.

If only he had taken the time to point out how to play on a streaming table for the first time.
