Well, with multiple games in a match, each player is highly likely to get at least a couple of innings.I think I'd enjoy it. Competitive straight pool is about winning, not about high runs, and while the two are obviously related, they are not the same. Runs that end with a miss are not the same as runs that close out a game, and the latter is the greater measure of a champion. I guess the one question I'd raise is whether this approach really does much to ensure that both players get to play. I'm not absolutely sure of it.
Long straight pool races really put me to sleep. I recall attending both the semifinals of the Dragon 14.1 event one year and when I learned that the final would be a race to 300, I decided not to even show up for the final the next day.
In the Dragon 14.1, the Finals were to 300 points for each of the last 5 events (2015+).
Thanks for your comments. But I doubt we'll ever see the multiple-short-games-per-match format adopted.
