Do we know for sure that these one-on-one matches will be on 7-footers? It doesn't say either way in the announcement. It stands to reason, since they're pushing 7-footers otherwise, but I think it would be funny if we all had this big hissy fit and they actually end up using 9-footers.

It's a gross misnomer to think that lesser players have an advantage on a smaller table.
Mike Page, and his Fargo Ratings, back your statement.

I will pass on watching this short race on a bar table, does nothing for me. Getting a 9 foot table for them to play on shouldn't be that difficult one would think.

I really think you should do that Lenny in your next tournament.

Wonder why 7 footers? Are there more audience in US for 7 footers compared to norm? Or is it to promote bar boxes?

No matter what rack, who racks, or when they rack, it usually takes about 7 tries for him to consider it a good one.
Should baseball players swing at every pitch?

Money.

Event promoters save money by having league nationals and the Open event played on the same tables as opposed to moving in and setting up two sets of tables.

Diamond makes money by promoting a more reasonable home table. Where people would be reluctant or unable to pull the trigger on a 9ft table for financial reasons or space constraints, the 7fter becomes a viable option.

To tell it like it's about anything other than $$$ is a lie.

Money argument might make sense for bar box tournaments. But in this instance how difficult if can be to find ONE 9 footer?

As other posters pointed out earlier, bringing in the 9fter would undermine CSI's edict that '7fters are the future of pool'

Its on the 7 foot table to get the female audience interested, but we all know 6 foot is the future of pool.

I won't even watch a free YouTube match if its on a bar box.

Looks like a kiddy table on the stream.

Given the size of MD's head... I bet when he breaks, you won't even be able to see the table

I was thinking those 18 by 9 inch desktop tables with spring loaded cues. This game is getting weaker everyday...it's a shame.
