SVB will at least take home some consolation knowing he got the Filler monkey off his back. I would imagine he felt like the title was his once he got through that match, given his history with Kazakis. But Alex is playing like World No. 1 right now.
Not alternate break. Now down 6-0. This time shane did get to the table. Gave back a push out, then messed up a safety after Alex did not get safe but left length of table with no shot. Shane took it too thin, and left an easy shot. Run out alex.
Shane has unfortunately been making some bad decisions in this final match. The first rack, he attempted a cross corner bank on the one when he could have played safe, missed and left an open table for Kazakis. In another rack, he went for a really ill-advised, low-percentage rail-first shot, missed, and left an easy runout for Kazakis. If not for those two decisions, the score could well be reversed.
