I think he realizes what little pool has to offer a pro and has made a conscious decision to not be all in. When travel, lodging and entry fees exceed 3rd place payouts in a 128 man field, why bother?
Shaw isn't really a great money player either.

bergman has also played tyler and corey lately, and lost

Shane and Tyler play a strong match, winning 5-1 over Dudanets/Stepanov. Total score is 5-4, USA leading. Next match up is singles, Max Eberle vs Fedor Gorst.

WOW! Mad Max wins a hill-hill thriller over Gorst, in what is surely an upset. Max broke on the hill to a rough layout, played a solid safe, Gorst missed the jump but it rolled back and totally hooked Max. Then Max hit a great kick just to make contact, and got some luck of his own as the two contacted another ball and went in. He completed a nervy runout for the victory.

This event is a great watch, btw. Stream is perfect, Jeremy Jones in the booth, and they even have heart rate monitors on the players so you get a sense of the physiological stress both sitting in the chair and at the table.

In the Kremlin Cup, Gorst beat Woodward 8-2 and Deuel 8-4. If Johan is paying attention, this victory by Eberle over Gorst will be judged to be a very big deal.

Well played, Max.

The case for Deuel is growing weaker and weaker, as he was 0-2 in singles a year ago at the Mosconi , losing to Ouschan 5-3 and Feijen 5-1. He lost to Alex Kazakis in the quarterfinals at the last World 9-ball Championships by 11-8. At the US Open, Corey fell to Jayson Shaw 11-1 and lost 11-2 to Miesko Fortunski, another one of Europe's best. After the drubbing by Fedor Gorst in the Kremlin Cup, Corey probably has much to worry about, as he continues to show little ability to beat the stars of European pool.

As a fan of Team USA, I want the guys who can fight the good fight against the top Europeans. In the past week, Eberle lost double hill to Ruslan Chinakhov and beat Fedor Gorst double hill.

Deuel is a better player than Eberle, but if we consider the last year alone, it's really hard to justify picking Corey over Max if Johan is basing Mosconi selection on performance.

Shane looked really solid. Max was huge today. What a trooper. Played like the 'ol bare-knuckle boxer he looks like.

I believe it starts at noon central time at the below link. (But, I could be off an hour either way on the start time)

It's a good clean professional stream and Jeremy Jones is the primary commentator. Has been great !!!! High recommend.

Hope this helps.

It sounds as if Jeremy has little interest in talking equipment. the Russian commentator tries to give a detailed run down of the equipment, cue, shaft, tip , ounces, etc. Other than a little conversation about Elkmaster, I haven't heard Jeremy really comment too much or engage in the equipment talk at all...

And when JJ did respond for a moment about tips, Emily literally said "you guys have to stop talking about tips" lol.

I did notice that too and I like that he prefers sharing his knowledge about what is important the most).
It was also very good to see Max Eberle who was not only looking old school but also using an old school equipment and playing old school and still being able to give a good fight to a really talented Fedor Gorst who belongs to the younger generation of players who uses modern equipment. It was one more example of what is important the most.
The best ad at this dreamchallenge is the ad of the pool school in Moscow because the best thing for our sport is the kids coming into this game to master it and have fun).
