I checked the brackets for the Texas Open and
it looks like Sky double dipped Dennis to win
the tournament. I guess it's safe to say that Sky
is definitely a top player, as if that was any kind
of uncertainty before this event.

I only bring this up, because of an old thread from
a year or two back that cast a lot of doubt about
his skill level. I wasn't necessarily a doubter or a
believer back then, but I'll go ahead and say that
I'm certainly a believer now....just sayin'

Sky has more potential to be one of the all time greats...his game gets stronger every year. He's got a very bright future. Just an outstanding person as well. Very humble.

Skyler is definitely on his way but he's not there yet. At the far stiffer test that was the Derby City Classic , Skyler was in shaky form for sure, not able to compete with the most elite players.

Classy kid with strong potential but until he has a top five in a big table event having a premier, internationally balanced, field (a WPA event, a US Open 9-ball, a Turning Stone, a Derby City 9-ball, a Super Billiards Expo, or even a Steinway Classic) I won't be sold.

This said, however, he beat Orcullo in Texas and topped YL Chang at the US Open this autumn, so he's beginning to collect some meaningful scalps.

Skyler can count me as a fan and I'll delight in anything he accomplishes, but the evidence in front of me says he's not one of the best quite yet.

You won't be a believer until he crushes Mike D on a 9' playing 10 ball.:D. Johnnyt

Congrats to Skyler.

He's definitely heading in the right direction. But lets not forget he's still a kid of what 23...?

I would like to see Mark take both Justin and Sky and give them some time to work with juniors, if they're able. Lot's of young kids could benefit from both of these two.

We need a resurgence of the Y :wink:

Roberto, Skyler and Dennis all rode in and left together. Pretty strong road team. I had the stream on during the calcutta but wasn't really paying attention. I seem to remember one guy bought three of the first four picks. Anyone know if he had Dennis or Skyler, or both?

The same guy bought all 4 of the opening blind bids, for a total of $10,400. They were, in order, Bergman for $3,000, Woodward for $2,400, Orcollo for $3,000, and Chohan for $2,000.

Also had Bergman to posse and you have the 4 Swordsmen. Dennis is not officially a member of the posse yet after exiting the French Connection :D
