Last event Robles was great in the booth. They do need a player to do color i agree. George is ok but his hyper attention to pronouncing names right wears me out. The Brit dude is fine but they need a current/former pro in the box. Some vets like Varner, Buddy, Hopkins, etc would b awesome. Big plus is they run pretty much on time, stream quality is flawless AND its free.i'm quite impressed by this endeavor by predator/CSI, the production is good, it's streamed free, they got a lot of things right. and if they up the prize money then matchroom's gonna have to do the same. the format has been flogged enough on this forum and elsewhere..
the commentator box badly needs a pro player / retired pro. the british guy is quite ok as a color commentator but the other guy isn't much of a conversateur so it becomes rather awkward when he pokes him. but hey it's free..
Is the much lower 8% B&R so far in this event because they have more weaker players appearing on stream compared to previous events?But for this event, they are not using a template. And the B&R percentage through 75 games on the main streaming table so far is 8% (a total of 6 B&Rs in 7 matches).
I'm sure the B&R% will improve later. In the first two events in this series this year, it was 16% and 21% in the streamed matches.
Good that Robles will be back now since he is already eliminatedLast event Robles was great in the booth.
Looks like Predator needs to go back to the drawing board with their new pool table. It ain't so easy to build a good table is it.
Probably not. When both players in a match are lower level, yes, we would expect fewer B&Rs. But all of the streamed matches in this event so far have had at least one real good player, often both. And, with a winner-breaks format, if one player is top notch and the other is much lower skilled, the inferior player doesn't usually get to break much anyway, so B&R percentages may not be affected much. Maybe the reason is just statistical fluctuation from relatively few games/breaks so far.Is the much lower 8% B&R so far in this event because they have more weaker players appearing on stream compared to previous events? ...
