Turning Stone XXXII predictions - 08-19-2019, 10:25 AM

One of the best run tournaments in the USA in one of the nicest venues is being held this week!! The players list is loaded with world class talent, strong regional talent and a ton of dead money lol. I would realistically say there are about 10 players in this field that could snap it off!! With that being said there are some regional players that could make a deep run in this event and come close. Always a great time up in Turning Stone !!

My prediction is Shaw over Immonen in the finals !!! Letís hear some thoughts.

Didn't Jason lose to Mika in January at the last TS Classic? (or was that Petri Makkonen??) I think I watched that match.

I'd like to see Jeremy Sossei take it, or Luc Salvas (that guy plays FAST)

It was Makkonen that beat Shaw at Turning Stone in January.

Always tough to pick against Shaw at Turning Stone, so I won't.

Sad to say that I'm unable to attend due to family obligations.

Salvas -exciting risk taking player that crowd would love to watch but his style just wonít get it done late in tourney against champions
Zvi- heís been knocking on the door at this event and has the game to get it done !!
Sossei- he also has been there on the final day many times and has the mental focus to win ii

I also forgot about Billy Thorpe who had an early exit last August ..I feel he will be there on Sunday for sure

Iím with you sjm itís just hard to pick against Shaw right now at TS

Surprised no one picked Shane.
It will be Shaw v Shane final
Shaw to win it since he is hard to beat here

That's the logical pick for the final but the Joss Tour regulars have a very good track record at Turning Stone. I figure that at least one of them will make a deep run, Sossei, Casanzio or one of the others.

I watched Luc Salvas play Jennifer Barretta in January. He shot as fast and she shot slow. She made the 9 on the break at least 3 times in a row too. Fun match to watch.

I'm kinda hoping Earl does well too. His is a match that I'll be looking for when I go on Saturday.

Iíll definitely be attending Saturday and late Sunday. I have a brand new hammerhead break tip from Outsville for Dan Dishaw to install. Iím expecting Saturday evening to be full of some really intense action. The field isnít heavy with a wave of Euro killers that we have seen in the past, but that just means if there is an early draw of two monsters and one of them loses, they will march on through the one loss bracket. I like watching when these players are pushed to grind and perform over and over again...Saturday night is when you see the human element take over. Always exciting.

Did Shaw break Johnny Archers TS win record with the last victory or just tie it?

Either way Iím going out on a limb and seeing Billy Thorpe vs Shaw in the finals.

Yup, I was ringside for that one, too. She made three nines on the break in a row but scratched on the third one. Luc, who had racked all three of them, took it all in stride and good sportsmanship was in full display for both players in that one. As you said, it was a fun match to watch.

so for no other reason other than last weekends bout, who's looking forward to seeing a Shaw v Shane finals?


Why did you spend the money on a Predator shaft, your problem is aiming not deflection

The less you BET, the more you lose when you WIN

I'm sorry to tell you but your problem was not bad rolls, it was bad decisions

I keep hoping to see Siming Chen up here.
Don't think she's ever entered.
She certainly could have placed in the top 5.

Yup, would be nice to watch. Other than Karen Corr, though, who played in many Joss Tour events, I don't recall a WPA #1 ranked woman ever playing at Turning Stone.

And yes, with a Fargo in the 780's, she might well finish top five.
