Thank you for the support guys! Tough first round and I'm glad I smoothed out towards the end. Looking forward to next round!
Nick is an excellent pool player. He and John Hennigan did some commentary in the TAR years. Both get in the grease many times.it's funny, I really thought it was Nick Shulman, but then thought it couldn't be since he normally does poker commentary.
But i guess it is him
I agree with you. I also think it's rare for any pro to play B+ or better all round for the duration of a tournament under the TV lights. Trump played better than I expected. We could equally call Shaw out on his positional play but would never do so because he has proved over and over again that he leaves more distance than other top pros between the cue and object ball yet still makes the shots.I agree with all of this but thought he broke better than B.
During the recap after Fillers match he said live on camera he had a match at 1:30. You can go watch it. He was absolutely supposed to play and withdrew.For those saying Boyes withdrew, he was never in in the first place. He's said many times that he can't be bothered to play any more.
Yes I am aware of that. He was added because there was a spare slot. He has now withdrawn for reasons that are known to him. He might let us know those reasons and he might not. He was never in in the first place.During the recap after Fillers match he said live on camera he had a match at 1:30. You can go watch it. He was absolutely supposed to play and withdrew.
It was seeded, according to a Matchroom news release a week ago, "based on the combination of World Ranking and Performance in Major Events." The results of the seeding are shown here (92 seeds!): https://matchroompool.com/wp-content/uploads/US-Open-Seeding-Categories.pdfI kind of think it was blind, based on many of the matchups. Or, maybe 16 or so top player seed, and the rest blind drawn.
Yeah, I was shocked. Especially being NJ the state is super liberal. I believe Hopkins moved his expo out of there because they were raping him in taxes.It’s interesting that in Vegas a few days ago everyone - players, refs, audience - was masked, but here in New Jersey it looks like almost no one is.
