Yea, I was just going to say, it seems like the shift is happening that we have been talking about...The way I read the 1P list is that Justin Hall and Roberto Gomez have no losses, whereas Billy Thorpe, Robert Frost, Omar Al Shaheen, Chris Melling, Joshua Filler, and Jesus Atencio all have one loss. All the marquee names are out, so we may be seeing a gradual shift in the top echelon.
Ghost hipped us to Atencio, but I don't know much about Filler, Melling, or even R. Frost either.
Like to see Justin Hall win it. He's been banging around the top for a number years now. Maybe this will be his year. He's won at Tunica, but not the DCC.
I see that Billy Thorpe has got a great chance at "Master of the Table". If he does well in the 9-ball he should get it. I wonder if anyone has ever gotten the MOT without winning either of the 3 events?
The best players today are not necessarily one pocket players or have a lot of knowledge / moves but what they for sure are is:
GREAT BALL STRIKERS!!
sad but true, I was really hoping that strategy would prevail but it's not looking quite that way
