LOL but I was good enough to beat kiamco. Shane has never beat kiamco
I watched this match. Donny doesn't have to defend his play. He played incredible. I think it was evenly matched and Shane out-lasted him. It's hard for anyone to concentrate at that level for that long - it becomes an endurance contest. Donny had the edge on the first day.
Donny is the best rack your own controlled breaker on the planet. What he knows has stumped everyone I know and there is huge skill and knowledge involved.
Roy - I don't think the pattern itself matters much. Getting on the one ball, making the wing ball, and spreading the balls cleanly from the racking area is the key.
The pattern is incidental. It just makes for a little less cue ball travel. Donny is good enough to run any random table with a shot on the one, the wing ball down, and the balls spread out.
