England B wins the 9th rack up 5-4 and the crowd is chanting, PI has to win 3-1 from here to take this down and I don't think they are capable. Upset special on the way
I don't see that, but respect your opinion.Nah. Karl should just shut up.
He's a snob.
Fargo rating has Warren 8 points over Karl, but Karl has not been playing as much lately and Warren had a good year. 783 v 775. Both with over 2,000 tracked games.If Karl asked Kiamco to play some, I believe Warren would say tails faster than Karl could get the offer out. Karl would be outmatched in a decent sized race vs him. Kiamco is tough as nails

I'd back Karl over Warren anywhere with independent magic racking if he's actively playing.
Karl was among top 3 in break and run in the IPT series even though he'd never played a big ball event before that. He's got heaps of talent, though he's still learning some tricks of the trade.
I'd back myself against him in snooker, English 8-ball, Chinese 8-ball or 3 rail pool. He's ok, but he's no superstar.Wtf? Yes, let's all use vague facts from a decade ago from the IPT. Warren placed 1st in the DCC 9Ball, 3rd in the World 14.1 championship, and 3rd in the SBE One pocket championship, that alone proves he's a better all-around player than Karl. He also placed 3rd in the DCC 14.1 this year.
You have to hate your money betting on Karl against Warren.
His finishes last year:
1st: Steinway Classic
2nd: Chuck Markulis one pocket
3rd: Hard Times 10 Ball
5th: Us Open 9 Ball
Karl is not touching Warren, regardless of his talent.
If you go by Fargo, Warren is ahead. If you go by WPA rankings, then Warren is still ahead at the number 4 spot while Karl is only 23.

Yeah, that's fair, coz that's what he does for a living and I don't. But my point was, kinda, he's doing ok this year around the US, but that doesn't make him better than Karl or quite a few others around the globe.So basically, you wouldn't want to face him in any game he is familiar with on a normal pool table?
I'm not Karl's mate or backer, but if they played 8 ball, I'll back Karl with odds, in 9 ball, with racking conditions, it would be close I think.He's drawing dead in there with Warren. I don't like to knock but Warren routinely grinds up some heavyweights for the cash. They barely can get there in these short races. This isn't much of a match up at all. Bring Daz for Warren to make it interesting (probably still a loss though).
Though he was talking about the experience playing under TV lights, which Karl has done many more times than Warren, obviously he was denigrating him.. perhaps that "Great Shot Wazza" was just to appease the critics. [/sarcasm]To Kris_b1104's point, I have to agree that Karl is indeed knocking Warren's DCC 9 Ball title. The US Open is also played at a hotel with lots of tables just like the DCC...The only difference I see with the 2 is the name of the event and the prestige of being called a "US Open" champ.
