Yes, super clutch playing from Thorpe.

I thought his shot on the 3 ball after Shaw missed the 3-4 combination (I think the score was 2-2 at that point) was the key shot of the match.


"He knew what those jubilant crowds did not know, but could have learned from books; that the plague bacillus never dies or disappears for good...and that perhaps the day would come when, for the bane and the enlightening of men, it would rouse up its rats again and send them forth to die in a happy city."

What boggles my mind is that Shaw was playing great in the international tournament owning the table and every shot with his Peri cue, and now on the Mosconi he changes his cue to a new one, some ppl might argue that its the player and not the cue, but here you see it in front of your eyes, his game isn't the same, why on earth would you change a cue that you just won a major tournament with, it doesn't make sense to me.

Im with you. It might be the player but In moments of pressure I want something I played with for a while that Iím not thinking about how itís going play.


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.

Didnít Shaw single out Thorpe in the press conference as being the weakest US player? Revenge is sweet.

This first match of day 4 is a great example what makes this MC fantastic when it comes to drama and difficult to guess what can happen under that kind of pressure when the value of each point is so high.
And here it is Jason coming with his worst game in this MC. That wrong decision on 3-ball in rack 8 was the last to cost the match. I'm sure Filler would just accept a tougher 4-ball with pretty natural position on the 5. I could not imagine a worse start of the match with that missed combo on the 9.
It makes the drama even bigger now with all that pressure on team Europe...


Playing cue: 62" full spliced player I''ve built for myself

The pressure is getting to Styer big time, as he misses two chances in the first two racks to go up 2-0. Instead, it's 2-0 Euros, and I think this match is already in the books for Europe.
