We're live - I do like Roberts and Thorpe doing the commentary. Roberts is a bit chatty, but I like his analysis. Thorpe is a good mix of letting the players play and chiming in. And I'd often prefer no commentary to bad or mediocre commentary.
At start of Day 3, score was Shaw 80-56.
So to win Shane needed a rate of at least 1.6 racks for every rack Shaw wins
Shane was only doing a miserable 0.5 rack for every rack Shaw wins
But now Shane needs a rate of 3.4 racks for every rack Shaw wins. In other words, Shane now needs double the rate required at start of Day 3
Shaw 107-72 for lead of 35
If I am not mistaken, the record for biggest winning margin in these looonnnng races between even opponents was SVB v Orcollo 35 racks, Score 120-85. (AtLarge would be able to confirm this record)
Recent Gorst v Biado was 34 (Score 120-86)
So Shane now has to try to not break that record of 35
Good show from Jayson. Shane's glad that's over, for sure. Shane never lost his shit though, took pics with fans during breaks, signed autographs, etc. Class act during a tough loss. Good job for Roberts and Thorpe in the booth too - huge improvement over prior Omega commentary IMO. I'd buy another PPV event like this.
