I've watched most of the DVD now and I can definitely say it's played at a good pace with a lot of good position play. The table was definitely easier than your standard table. I saw probably 20+ shots go that would not have gone on the tables I play my straight pool league on. Shaw is an incredible player though and I'll bet if the table was tighter he would have bore down a little more. I definitely learned a few things from commentary as well. It's a pleasure so far to watch.
