Shane, Shane, Shane Van Boening from South Dakota, a humble player with a punch that can be heard around the world when he's in the zone. Shane is America's great hope to win this title, and you can be sure a lot of us will be chanting "USA, ALL THE WAY" between shots during his match. Go, Shane, go!

Wu Jiaqing is a Taiwanese-born Chinese professional pool player, nicknamed the Taishan Shentong ("Little Genius from Taishan").

Previously known as Wu Chia-ching, the spelling of his name was changed upon moving to mainland China.

Raised by his grandmother from the age of 2, Wu began playing eight-ball at the age of 10 at his family-run pool hall. When he became serious about pool, his grandmother would shuttle him from one competition venue to another on her scooter.

In 2005, after only six years of playing, Wu became the youngest player (at 16 years, 5 months old) ever to win the WPA World Nine-ball Championship.

I remember Wu-Wu very well when he won. I like this kid. Well, he's 30 years old but still a kid to me.

Jayson Shaw (Scotland, defending champion) vs. Joshua Filler (Germany)
Francisco Sanchez Ruiz (Spain) vs. Ko Ping-Chung (Taiwan)

April 24, Session 2 (1.30pm, Vegas Time)
Jeffrey De Luna (Philippines) vs. Imran Majid (Britain)
Alex Pagulayan (Canada) vs. Aloysius Yapp (Singapore)

April 24, Session 3 (6pm, Vegas Time)
Hsu Kai-Lun (Taiwan) vs. Lui Haitao (China)
Chang Yu-Lung (Taiwan) vs. Jeffrey Ignacio (Philippines)

April 25, Session 1 (9am, Vegas Time)
Hsu Jui-An (Taiwan) vs. Can Wang (China)
Shane VanBoening (USA) vs. Wu Jiaqing (China)
What strikes me about that list is how many from China and TAiwan who I never heard of and only one from the USA.

In longer sets I'd take Filler due to his recent play internationally but 9 ball in relatively short sets probably half the names on that list could win.

There is a growing fan base on Facebook for Aloysius Yapp from Singapore. He's won the hearts of many pool fans around the world. Everybody who knows him has only good words to say about him. I hope I get to see him play later today, if I'm not working. I like him already and haven't seen him play yet.

He'll be playing against Alex Pagulayan. Tough to root against Alex. Whoever wins, I'll be happy.

Thanks, Jam; great job on this.

Shane put on an awesome performance against Hatch. I hope he can run with it.

I'm genuinely excited for this. I even bought a monthly subscription to DAZN so I can watch. The app for it was already on my smart tv and I had no idea. A lot of other cool content on there as well like snooker and Bellator MMA. Not sure I'll keep my subscription more than one month, but if they continue to add content, pool content especially, I might.

This is a tall order for Shane. He has a losing record against Wu. But it's The Open and Shane owns this event.

I heard rumor that SVB sent six strippers to Wu's room at 4am.

Great post Jam! It's hard for me to put a face to many of the Taiwanese and Chinese player's names (which I can't pronounce either lol), so your post is going to be very helpful for me to keep things straight. Thank you!

Below are a couple nickname corrections (or additions?) to the Filipino players:

Jeffery "The Bull" De Luna

Jeffery "Cobra" Ignacio
