I'm referring specifically to those long race to 100 or more 10 ball matches. Shane almost never loses those- I can only remember him losing to Earl on the 10 footer and Alex on the 9 footerWhat throne?
At the last two Bigfoot 10-ball Championships, Filler won at the International and Filler won again at Derby City, in which Shane didn't cash. Shane came just 17th at the 2022 World 10-ball. Has Shane won anything of note in ten-ball in recent years? Even pre-pandemic, JL Chang was wearing Shane out at ten-ball in action matches.
Make no mistake about it, Shane is a superstar of the highest order and is on the short list of the greatest players ever, but is there any evidence anywhere that he's the best at ten-ball right now? None that I can find.
