There is Wu who is still young at 25 if we define young as under 30.Wang Can just turned 20. Bergman for the Mosconi is a great idea!
I would rather watch Sky, Bergman, & J. Hall take a shot at it, than watch Rodney Morris, Dennis Hatch, and Johnny Archer get beat on.
It all boils down to how young do we want to call young?
Of the names brought up in this thread, so far:
19 years old
20 years old
24 years old
Ko Pin Yi
26 years old
30 years old
Shane Van Boening
And I like Jayson Shaw 25 years old. Fantabulous potter, beautiful stroke.
If we define young as under 20 , then probably the best under 20 player in world right now is that little monster Ko Pin Chung at 18 years old
IMHO, Best young player (under 30 ) in world -10b, Ko has slight edge over Wu but 9b probably Wu. If 8b, maybe Jayson or WuStill, if we're picking just one, I'm thinking Ko Pin Yi is the best young player in the world right now.
