Everything else was the same as it alway was,

We sure could use another pool movie, a good one. all of them seem to be based on gambling, i wonder if its possible to make a movie about pool that's not based on gambling/deception?

This has not been confirmed. To be honest, it has always seemed so obvious and common sense to me that I don't see how it could be anything else. In any case, this is just the consensus of the voices in my head, so we could be wrong.

And Vince would be playing from a position of anger wanting to bear down and show the old legend how it's done in the modern era.
Yeah

Poor Eddie stood no chance.

Didn't say no chance. Just not a lock to win. Eddie was on the comeback right then and playing pool for the desire to win and not just the money. So it wasn't about beating Vince right then, but being present among the best and eventually being the best, again.

It is clear that he still possessed the same character flaw in TCOM that he possessed in TH. His history is filled with playing for the wrong reasons and making bad choices. His match with Vince at the end was both for the wrong reason and a bad choice.

I think we have a very different view on the match at the end. The match at the end, like the match at the end of The Hustler, is the redemption one, the one where you take the shot at being the best just to be the best and the money doesn't matter.

I definitely don't view the last match in TH as stemming from the same motivation as the last match in TCOM. Eddie had an overwhelming need for recognition, a need for approval, a need to show he was the best. This flaw showed itself in many ways in both TCOM & TH but perhaps none more prevelant than in his relationship with Bert. Bert used this need for recognition to mess with Eddie in the first match with fats by telling him he was a born loser and then stuck with this theme to control Eddie and make him Bert's lackey. Sarah's death was a real eye opener for Eddie. Eddie finally saw what was important in life and he played fats, not to be the best, but to escape the mental chains of Bert.

I view the match at the end of TCOM as being another poor choice by Eddie based on his need to be recognized from others. He was way overmatched and had no business playing other than to show that he had fully regressed into the same guy in the beginning of the movie TH.,

I thought Freddy The Beard had an explanation about the license plate in another thread. The car belonged to someone else and that was his plate #

They must not have been able to get enough takes with him actually making balls....lol...

The table is actually setup for the 6-9 combo that eddie shoots a little later and amos is shooting the balls straight where the camera can't see to allow a non cut to that shot as their talking... paused at 8:47 will show that...
