Has anybody noticed how Mark Griffin always comes with a cool pool idea? He belongs in the BCA's Hall of Fame.

Great idea! Team CSI's strongest member is Alex, of course, but the other four are capable beating any world beater on the face of the planet.

Long live Mark Griffin! And USA, ALL THE WAY, of course!

He's ours. We Americans adopted him when he got in the HOF this year. Sorry!

CSI is a tough team. I have a hope that this will all someday spin off into another annual challenge. When I first saw the ABN dream challenge I didn’t know much and I thought it was a soft warm up event but now I know better. It was another team of killers. They just all looked so young I figured they were good amateurs who happened to be playing lights out lol.

Now we’ve got another team and MC warmup event. I’d like to see something with 4-5 teams whittling each other down

Team Play Mosconi Cup/Semi-Pros? - 11-13-2019, 06:37 AM

This venue, each year seems to be getting more successful/fun/engaging and good for the game.

What I'd like too see, is a semi pro event (bar table)....where Each state of the Union creates their Best team (no pros allowed).

Divide the country up into quadrants.

Have the best 2 E. Coast teams battle it out....and the W. coast do the same.

Now you have and the East Coast against the West Coast so tah speak.

During the collegiate 14.1 days, they did this type of formatting, to create the finals.

I agree! Yes...


I knew a fellow that thought he was a good boxer because he was in a position to befriend a lot of "professional boxers". It cost him azzwhippens till he realized he wasn't what he thought/wished he was.

Do you know anyone like the "wannabe" boxer in the pool world?

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ would also create stronger players in the long run.

It would be nice.

Why would it be embarrassing? Not only is Team CSI not soft.....they are actually a very deep and talented team. Each one is very accomplished with tournament success. They will also have good chemistry as Oscar & Vilmos are great friends and all of the players are well liked.

Great idea but since there is no "Pro" tour, how would you define a pro? ...Fargo? If so, what cutoff?

Is pool your main source of income? Then you're a professional pool player. Skill is irrelevant.

I agree.

Not a single person on the planet, would be embarrassed if Alex or anyone of his skill level defeated them at pool. After all, Alex is an extremely dangerous player to go up against.

Teams are leagues, leagues are amateurs.

I don't know of any touring pros that ever played a full season of leagues other than John Abruzzo IL.

Putnam played a season in a local league several years ago. I remember at one point his record was like 42-3 playing nine ball.

I don't know what you would consider Jason Kirkwood but he was active in NAPA for quite awhile.
