With BIH Mike let off Jayson with that horrible safety and lost chance to steal Jayson's break. Jayson won lag so advantage Jayson

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.

Says I have to spread it around before giving you good rep again, thanks for updates :)

I wonder if they will jump around hugging like a bunch of queens again after beating our helpless ass?

2-1 to Europe. After the commercial break, Mike is breaking.

Pockets a ball. Yay! The position of the 2 doing America no favors. Shane tries a long-rail bank and misses.

Jayson looks at the leave and doesn't like it. It's a lotta green, folks. The 2 is available, but it just doesn't offer any positional value for the 3. Jayson takes an extension for the first shot of the rack. Makes a brilliant shot on the 2.

Slices the 3 in just like that, and it wasn't easy. He's giving himself a chance. Lightly hits the 4 and makes it.

Looks like another easy run-out from here. Powers in the 8 in the side with perfect shape on the 9.

It's looking bleak for the Americans now, with Shaw breaking next rack.

Europe 3, USA 1.

Another dumb shot by the US will coat them another rack. Wilson really needs to get them to work on safety play for next year.

Mike breaks wet in rack 4 but as in rack two, no shot on the two. Nike takes a flyer at a long bank. misses and leaves ashor but the layout is difficult. Shaw makes a fine shot aand will need another good one on the three, and he's up to it, setting up a runout.

Shaw 3 Mike 1.

We are, at last, getting to see thebest of Shaw, who has made several difficult shots in this match already.


Mike unlucky, though, as two wet breaks have failed to leave a decent shot. Similarly, when Shaw scratched on the break, no runout was available.

Shaw breaks, leaves the 9 hanging in the corner. A golden break!

It may end up being a 4-9 combo in this game, but time will tell.

Jayson shoots the 2 in the side. He has a fairly easy cut on the 3 ball in the corner. Meanwhile, Jayson is looking at the 4-9 combo, but he's over-hit it. He may try to draw this and make the 9 with the cueball. Watch the cuecall. He tried it, made the 4, but missed the 9 with the cueball.

Well, the 6-9 is looking good for a 4-1 lead. Caroms off the 6 and gets the 9.

Jayson on the hill. Mike breaking next.

Shaw, keyed by a bank of the five into the side, break and run in rack five.

jayson 4 mike 1.

Europe needs just one more rack to secure the cup for Team Europe.

It was announced that Albin wil be MVP if Shaw wins. For me, I think Gray was Europe's best pLayer, though not by much.

Mike breaks, pockets the 1. Good break. Giving himself a chance. The 2 is available. A horrible miss on the 2 in the corner. Horrible! The slumped shoulders tell you the story.

Shaw can see the 2. Makes it. Shoots the 3, makes the 4. You can start warming up the band for Team Europe.

If Europe wins 11-3, it is the second best score in Mosconi Cup history.

Shaw is running out like water. This one is done. The celebration is going to start real soon.

The crowd is SCREAMING. Jayson is smiling. He shoots the 9.


It's over. Team Europe wins.
