Us open 10 ball - 07-22-2018, 03:31 PM

Since Iím still occupied running these events, I canít take the time to properly address some of the comments and suggestion in this thread.

But I will. When I have the time (and not from my phone), but Ive got to say that some of these comments fail to take into account that we make schedules months and months in advance. Once we announce. It is very difficult to change directions. Please keep that in mind

Other than that, I enjoyed the stream and the commentating...


Thanx for everything, Mr Griffin

A-side line up for tomorrow....

Van Boening vs KaÁi
Kiamco vs Pagulayan
Aranas vs O Dominguez
Holman vs Orcullo

The thing about the stream is no matter how big or small the field is...you get
world class matches.

Shane is playing Kaci now.

I wish more replies were like John Henderson's, politely disagree and explain his position without offense and name calling. All were, are, or will be champions. We, the pool playing public, are beneficiaries of great pool!

Kaci won over Shane in the 8 Ball rather convincingly. Neither player can afford to make a mistake.

Congrats to SVB and wait to go Mitch E for having such a strong tourney.

^^^^^^ No doubt. As I said earlier, he has been a beast for years. I highly respect his game.

I could not be happier for Shane, he is still my favorite.
^^^^^^ Shane is my favorite and has been for a long time. IMO, Shane is the biggest beast in pool. That is just my opinion but I truly believe that.

I could not have said it better. You said pretty much what I was trying to get across.

Some have mentioned that Kaci has not challenged this player or that player. That alone tells me Kaci is more mature than most of the people that watch him play.

If he stays in pool, as you said, he will most likely rule pool soon enough. I hope he ends up acting more like Efrin or Shane instead of some barking beast, regardless of how strong they play.

Pool needs to be seen as a respected sport. It is not seen that way by the masses and will not until more young people like Kaci steps into the ranks.

I'm not saying lets go ahead and put him into the hall of fame. LOL. But, everyone should show the kid more respect.

After all, how often do we see, as you said, "a good kid" enter into the ranks of pro pool players? Not often.


Don't let your bark be bigger than your stroke.

If I had plenty of money, I would probably lose more often.

I agree.

It seems that Kaci, as young as he is, acts more mature than the average seasoned pool player.

I hope he stays that way.

Congratulations to who raised him. They evidently did a great job. Actions speak much louder than words. Kaci's actions, even in the really high-end pressure situations has handled himself like a "man" well beyond his years.

As said earlier, pool (we) need Kaci and more like him very badly.
