If pool players had to have knowledge of geometry and physics before talking about geometry and physics, all of the aiming threads would disappear.

Watching him play at Turning Stone, you could see that he was firing on all cylinders. It was nice to see him playing so well.

Earl and Efren should keep playing as long as they want to. They are both good for pool.

I love Earl. Glad to see him without all those Finger Tapings.

He is still so amazing...

EARL!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank you sir.


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?

Yup, no secret that Earl has that special gear, but as he so rarely finds it in the big events, I wonder whether he really is top five. Obviously, when he finds his highest gear, he's US top two behind only Shane, but to me, quality is chiefly about winning matches, and Turning Stone aside, Earl hasn't been doing much of that in 2019.

Nonetheless, gotta give the man credit on a fine achievement. His determination and skill are still special.

SJ,

I understand what your saying and agree with most of it but, some part of me just can't write Earl off. Not because of the TS event but, because I knew he still had/has the stuff.

He looked sharp, if he only had Shane's break he'd be dangerous.

The only problem with Fargo is that it is blind to the quality of the match (as opposed to the opponent). You can say that Earl lost hill-hill to Hatch and it is true of course, but he also looked bad (for him) and the match was only close because Hatch also played bad (for him). Earl might have played that match at 700 speed and lost to Hatch playing 720 (just to make up examples), whereas he might run two four packs in another match and lose to a 6 pack and a three pack. So IMO the fan perception of Earl not playing well comes from qualitative assessments by fans of his level of play, not just that he lost early.

All of that said, what I saw of TS was Earl firing on all cylinders and playing great pool again. I would like to see more of that before Id say hes back! (To paraphrase Fast Eddie).


Regards,

Gideon

All true.

When we see how Earl has performed over a larger number of games, though, like the last 600, opponents will have sometimes under-performed and sometimes over-performed. So that's better grounds for deciding whether "he's back."
