What's the deal with the fans choice teams match that was listed at the bottom of the line up?
You'd just have people asking for the ball to be cleaned every shot if that was the case.
In matches with a ref and no shot clock they clean the ball every time they likethat a player could use/abuse the time cleaning the ball to gather themselves is a legitimate point
double j/any player should ask for the cb to be cleaned immediately, then use that time to think without going over the clock
honestly, I didn't know they didn't stop the clock tho, in any match, at any tournament..your above point is good, but it's still surprising to me
damn shame, tho, that ending. I'm curious to know if double j knew the rule, and forgot in the heat of the moment, or didn't know at all
you figure a guy like jeremy jones would know all the rules backwards and forwards, but maybe not..guess we'll hear about it
You said it yourself, when there is no shot clock, not a problem. You cannot expect the clock to be stopped when the cue ball is being cleaned because that's an unfair time advantage.In matches with a ref and no shot clock they clean the ball every time they like
Snooker they clean the ball often because any little skid will cost the shot on right pockets. If pool is going to be played on tight pockets, players have to be able to clean the ball.
Yep. Emily likely made executive decision to push Match 6 (Fan's Choice) to final day tomorrow to avoid Europe getting on hill 10-5So US got shut out 5-0 today?

I try not to be too negative about commentary - but I would take the extension howler monkey in the booth over Phil Yates right now.
Three points here.You are supposed to shoot with a clump of chalk on the ball and take your chances?
Pause the clock for the 5 seconds it takes...WTF
Or games being decided over him not hearing the 5 second beeping.
I really want to know if he's have made the 6 abd gotten shape on the 7....we will never know
