World Snucar Champion
Not really. Ko and Wu both played an incredible match in the semis. They put on a better performance than any match in recent memory. Shane played good before the finals and he broke great, but Dennis practically handed Shane the match on a silver platter with tons of unforced errors and KPC couldn't get his break to work and gave back a lot of chances off of Shane's misses.
Ko may have been lucky off of a few rolls in the finals, but Shane was lucky to meet an opponent in the quarter finals of the world championship who would miss half a dozen open shots to him in one match.
Well said! It's simply not true that SVB played better than anyone else in the WC. That's Ted Lerner's idiotic thoughts. He had the easiest of draws till the quarters and his game was struggling. It was his break that made the difference in the QF and SF and of course the tons of mistakes Orcullo made cause he had his pants shitted from the word go. Little Ko's problem in the SF was, as Masayoshi mentioned, the fact that his break completely let him down. Shane's shooting wasn't that impressive too. Lots of positional errors and quite a few open pockets missed too.
There were ONLY two players that were constantly playing great pool through out the entire tournament, Ko and Wu. In fact, I consider the semi between them the best match of the WC by far and the true final.
