Race to 21 it is then.
Personally I thought the Biado/Hatch race to 25 was long enough and certainly exciting enough, but Shane does tend to move things along so I would be in favor of a longer race myself.
For those curious about the match, here's a link:
Justin was hired by CSI so I assume he'll be involved in the broadcast, which will be PPV on CSI's stream.
Here's from the press:
CueSports International, Henderson, Nevada (April 4, 2014) – CSI is proud to present the Kamui Challenge Match: Shave Van Boening vs. Ko, Pin-Yi. This much anticipated match will take place July 17, 2014 during the BCAPL & USAPL National Championships at the beautiful Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, NV. Those in participating in the BCAPL or USAPL National Championships can watch for free in person or via direct live stream feed in their hotel room. Those not in attendance can watch via pay-per-view at http://www.playcsipool.com/LiveStreaming.aspx
Since 2011, Van Boening has been the top performing player in the USA and arguably the world. Although all of his accomplishments are too numerous to list, some of the most noteworthy include the 2008 World Cup of Pool Champion, 2011 US Open 10-Ball Champion, 2011 & 2012 Derby City Classic Master of the Table, 2012 US Open One-Pocket Champion, 2007/2012-2013 US Open 9-Ball Champion, 2013 US Open 8-Ball Champion, and the 2012 & 2014 US Bar Table Championships All-Around Champion. He has also been featured on numerous challenge matches with an incredible record.
Ko, a Taiwan superstar and relatively unknown in the U.S., also possesses an impressive list of accomplishments. He was the 2011 Guinness World Series of Pool Champion, 2011 & 2013 All Japan Men’s Champion, and 2013 Indonesia 9-Ball Open Champion. He also finished 2nd in the 2009 Qatar International Open, 3rd in the 2010, 2011 & 2013 World Cup of Pool, 5th in the 2013 US Open 10-Ball, and 5th in the 2013 US Open 8-Ball.
Here's one more opinion: Ko needs weight.
