Shane never looked comfortable this week.

Saw him miss 3 routine shots, and his position and decision making wasn't as sharp as we're used to seeing.
According to an unsubstantiated rumor, Shane went off for a big number in the casino. Again.

Some habits are just too hard to quit. 🙄

If just 1 of the above players were in the final four, I'd say this was an OK tournament.
Maybe I am just out of touch with all these new fangled formats.

Just 1. :(

On the contrary, you are 100% correct. This was a very tough field. The winner will be able to raise their head very high after topping a field of this quality. The fact that the format had some kinks takes nothing away from what the eventual champion will have accomplished.

Nice to see that anyone who won even a single match in Stage 2 cashed for at least $5,000, too.

As I went to bed too early to catch it, I missed Yapp v Shaw, although Yapp was up 4-1 when I went to sleep. Great win for Yapp, who turned many heads at the 2019 US Open 9-ball, reaching Stage 2 (the last sixteen) and, despite very fine play, lost double hill to Alex Pagulayan 11-10 to miss earning a spot in the quarterfinal by a rack.

Can anyone who watched the match offer anything about the play in Yapp vs Shaw?

SJM,

I watched this match for a little while, but it got a bit out of hand with Yapp getting out to a substantial lead, especially when considering the alternate break format. It appeared to me that Jayson Shaw did not have his A game. He was a off. I have no insight on why. Maybe he just had a bad night. Who knows. To Yapp's credit, during the time I watched, he just took care of business. He was a steady player. I am sorry I can't offer more, but the score was so lop-sided it was hard for me to have continued interest.

Tough field indeed! - US Open should be fun to watch...

How is anyone supposed to find that? If you enter https://www.world10ball.com/ and click on the "Brackets" you get this: https://ctsondemand.com/DivisionHome.aspx?DivisionID=c20da923-61bc-469a-80b6-253a6a1f216e
Nothing else to click on that page, there is literally no way to get the link you posted..
Agreed, not as user friendly as it could be. CTSONDEMAND.COM is the site for all CSI event results. If you go there, World 10-ball Championship is one of the choices, and if you click on that, you can choose either the Stage 1 bracket or the Stage 2 bracket.

Did anyone else see the no-rail call by Leymann on Biado? It looked to me like Biado caught the one ball on the way into the rail.
Examined it. Good hit. You can tell that in real time even. In frame by frame, the ball gets nudged into position to be kicked into the 10. Frankly I consider this the turning point of the match. Biado clearly got onto the wrong foot. It's not difficult to imagine Biado rolling through the match otherwise.

Yapp's speed control was excellent. Shaw definitely had a couple of very uncharacteristic misses. I believe when it was 8-2, Shaw shot a 10 ball one handed... It was a neat match.

Looks like Biado could not lock down the speed of the table. He got very frustrated, but did maintain discipline the Filipinos are known for.

Did anyone confirm if the referee gave him a bad call on the kick early in his game against Oi? Terrible, if that was the case in an era where replay is available and the fact that the player contested the call. Referees should not be making the difference.
