Sometimes they roll like that.
Of the remaining players ,Francisco Sanchez-Ruiz has the highest Fargo rate, which, at 811, is 17th best in the world. Albin Ouschan, at 806, is the only other player that rates in the world top 35 based on Fargo.Ok folks that's the wrap. Mega upset- Last of the top guns favorite SVB is out.

Now it is over to the Low Tier Show. I hope Matchroom gives us all discount on our subscriptions
Neither played anything remotely close to "flawless" in that match. You're mostly right about the randomness and rolls though... the phrase "any given Sunday" comes to mind on this WednesdayShane is playing the best game of his life yet he didn't make past the 16th round, this goes to show you that what I've been saying for yrs is true. This game is mostly about randomness and rolls.
It doesn't matter if you're at a skill of 10/10 or 9.5/10 or even 8/10 - an 8/10 can beat the 10/10 player if things go well, I don't want to use the letter for grading players because I don't want to get into the dilemma of AAA++ and A,B,C like the other thread. All I am saying here that if levels of players are at pro level or almost-like-pro, its a tossup depending on rolls with the player himself or rolls against his opponent.
Ill repeat, Shane is playing flawlessly and he was beat by a decent player but not his level also not to mention his tilted awkward head and stance (His opponent), I didn't watch the match but properly everything went with that player and most things went against Shane, anyway the game is mostly about randomness of what happens in the set itself.
Lets not start on long races, thanks.
