What are the odds on M.D. defeating Jayson Shaw? Have they ever played against each other on the Joss Tour or other events? Just curious.

Sounds lime its been pretty even, maybe MD with a slight edge iirc.

Agree. It's not over yet and MD seems in good spirits the whole time. If Shane can find his game it will get exciting.
Goodluck USA

I think Jarrod Clowery is over there with Mike. They seemed to have formed a good friendship in recent times, ever since that TV reality show. Jarrod is really good pool peeps too.

Wow, right now Albin is favorite for MVP. Won all his 5 matches, 1 more than Niels who also won all his matches also. Worst performer is Shane who lost all his 5 matches. Rodney best performer for Americans better than Jayson who is worst performer for Euros. Only won 1 out of 4 matches big letdown for Player of the Year:)

Very interesting. Wow! Maybe Mike has a shot at this, after all.

I can see it for free on my Xfinity online.

They said this is the biggest crowd Mosconi Cup has ever had.

Here we go.

"I've been waiting for this moment all my life" is the song for Shaw, who's wearing the European Flag as a shawl.

Hope Jayson does not literally knock out Dechaine like what he promised on FB recently
Dechaine is cheerful talking to ref
Will they shake hands?
:D

Jayson breaks, pockets 2 balls on the break, cueball left on the end rail. Lot of green for the 2, and he slices it in like it had eyes.

Great open shot from Shaw there.

Left himself bad. Sweetly timed but not well judged. Must bank the 6 or play safe. Extension called. Somebody screams out in the crowd like an idiot. Everybody laughs.

Shaw uses the mechanical bridge an plays a safety, leaving Mike NO SHOT! Mike has a cueball hidden behind the 7. Mike calls an extension. He is eyeing this up a couple ways. No hit. Bad hit.

Shaw has ball in hand. Mickey Mouse run-out for Jayson. Jayson wins the first game.

1-zip. Europe. Mike breaking next.

In rack one, Shaw breaks wet and makes a superb long shot on the two. Missed shape on the six forces safety, played superbly. Mike, facing a very tough hit, and Mike isn't up to it. shaw runs out for a 1-0 lead.

Making team USA kick has been a winning formula all week for Team Europe.

Back after a commercial. Showed a replay of the tremendous safety shot by Shaw on the 6. Mike D. knew the rack was lost after he missed that hit.

Now Mike will break the balls. 1-ball down. 2 came up and married itself to the 4. No shot on the 2 for Mike.

Mike decides to push out after the break. Leaves the cueball against the end rail. Shaw doesn't like it and gives it back to Mike.

Mike aims for the 2, cut it a bit think. Shaw can hit the 2, but it's not makeable. Shaw returns a safety, leaving Mike a hard cut. Mike plays another safety, leaving Shaw nothing. It's a safety battle here, folks. Shaw almost scratches, cueball in the jaws of the corner, leaving Mike a very difficult 2-9 combo in the side.

This might be all or nothing. Extension called. Here he goes. He's going for it. Slops the 9 in the corner instead of the side.

Mike is on the board. USA 1, Europe 1.

Shaw breaking next.

Mike breaks wet and can see the two but no good safe available. Wisely pushes out and Shaw gives it back. safety is just passable, leaving no shot but leaving Shaw a good look at a safety. shaw misplays the safety and so does Mike hooks him. Shaw super icky not to scratch on his kick, leaving Dechaine in the jaws of the corner with no shot on the two. Only thing available is a crazy-tough two nine combo and Mike misses but the nine goes in anyway.

Tied at 1-1

Shaw breaks and scratches. In two shots, this match has changed. USA has hope. Shaw looking disgruntled in the corner.

Mike studies the table. Mike plays a safety, leaving Shaw nothing. Jayson calls an extension. The crowd is absolutely quiet when Jayson shoots. Jayson makes a one-rail bank on the two. Banks are open in London tonight. He makes it!

Shoots the 3 in the corner. Just like that, it's a reversal of fortunes, thanks to a weak safety effort by Mike Dechaine, according to Jimmy Wetch.

Shaw gets a wee bit out of position on the 7, but he makes it. Makes the 8, the 9, and the score is now Europe 2, USA 1.

Mike breaking next.

Shaw scratches on break but there's no runout available. Mike plays a safe to break open the tied up balls. misses the hook, but leaves Sahw tough. Shaw make a long bank of the two, one of the better shots of the entire Mosconi Cup and runs them.

Shaw 2 mike 1

Missed opportunity for Mike, but Shaw's bank of the two was remarkable. That said, team Usa's defensive inadequacy costs yet again. In the words of Peter Paul and Mary "when will they ever learn?"
