Basically where I was coming from with the Filler vs SVB thing. No doubt SVB has beaten Filler before, as Mike showed, but Filler has beaten him on the big stage much more often, and more recently. He's also done it since he became a household name in the pool world and started racking up titles, whereas SVB hasn't won any majors in quite some time. Even though he didn't take down the tournament, I think SVB beating Filler hill-hill was big for him and goes far beyond just advancing him to the next bracket of the tournament purse.Agreed that 1/2 a billion was a slight exaggeration, but I've been present for so many of Kazakis' failures against Shane, that it felt like that many.
Not really. Kazakis had 3 B&R's. He won most of the other games after mistakes by SVB -- 4 games after missed shots, 1 game after a poor safety. And Kazakis would not have had the opportunity for the B&R's but for SVB's mistakes. But Kazakis did play well when he had those opportunities,... it was out of shane's control.
It's not QUITE half a billion: Kazakis beat Shane at both the 10-Ball Challenge and the 9-Ball Challenge CSI events in July 2017
