Just talked to Jet. It's on. I guess Jet got tired of waiting for them champions to come look him up at Red Shoes. They will be playing on Diamond tables. Another big factor against Jet besides losing home court. No matter, Jet is cut in the mold of Monster John, hard playing and non-fearing.

Go git 'em baby! I cant go, I'm getting my rt eyeball shaved wednesday.

From what I was told it will be two races to 5 playing long rack. There was no mention of a spot.

Streamed?

Streamed?

I hope someone streams it, or puts a decent video camera on a tripod and uploads the match on youtube.
Love watching action matches with great players!

Jet got dusted the 1st set 5-0 and lost the 3rd set 6-1. Who is this Shannon Murphy? Haven't seen his name before. Going to have to do some research:)

Can we get a breakdown of what happened? Did Jet play horrible? Did Shannon play over his head? Let's hear some opposing views.

Is there going to be a reloading of the barrels and a rematch?

I thought they were going to play today. I'll call Jet and Eddie later. Shannon came in 3rd in the 9 ball at last years DCC. He lost out to Efren.

I wasnt happy about Jet playing on Diamond tables. They have like none, in Chicago.

That was in the Ring Game. Completely different scenario. He didnt play any another match at DCC after that.

Previous years at DCC he always had difficulty with the Diamonds.

Pretty impressive, and decisive two set scores. How about the middle set, what was the score in that set?

Jet lost 11 out of 12 games, better look for another opponent or make an adjustment somewhere. :eek: :eek:

Maybe he needs to go back to Freddy for a refresher course.;)

Jet has proven to be the perfect executor of my strategies. He is "Ghost Playing" for me. (Similar to "Ghost Writing") "You cant out move the Beard's Ghost at bank pool."

I don't think looking for execuses is going to help Jet or any player that goes to another players room (home court) to play. You better be skilled enough to take on that kind of a challenge, and if you're not then don't do it.

Having the home court playing bank pool is very strong, probably worth close to a ball. But by the scores of the sets that were played, you would think that he was over matched.

Playing bank pool in the Southside of Chicago is worth more then a ball if you're not familiar and comfortable doing so. There is a lot to be said about the advantages of home court, especially in the southside of Chicago.:eek:

You compared Jet to Monster John, mistake. Monster John has a lot more seasoning then Jet, and I believe that is the difference in the two. When I was living in Chicago, and during the times I frequented Chicago I never heard of Jet traveling to other pool halls to play. So why would you think that he could travel to other cities to play champions? Seasoning is a crucial ingredient in the recipe of success, and without that you're going to have a difficult time beating champions on the road.:eek: But this experience will help Jet, and his next trip where ever it may be will be easier for him to win.

shannon plays good banks.

You can teach us banks Freddie but you cant teach experience or height.At the Galaxie 2000 in West Virginia in 86-7 at a big 9-ball tournament there was a 9-10 year old kid who never missed and was supposed to bring everyone to their knees in a few years.Many are called but few come through,cheers,Bob

Jeez, the guy lost 2 out of 3 sets and you think his career is over. That's the first match he has lost in one year. Just for the record, Shannons backers could only come up with 2k to play ONE set. The agreement was 2 sets for 2k each. When Eddie and Jet arrived, Shannon's people could only scrape up 2k. Jets backer made too many mistakes managing. He let Jet pick the wrong table to play on, pockets were too tough for somebody coming in cold, he let SHannon bet 2 instead of 4, and because he only bet 2 he let him make the session too long. For that small money I would have made Shannon play 2 out of 3. You just cant let top players have their way in every category. Jets backer didnt consult me for anything on this one. Not even a phone call. Maybe worried I would want a gapper.
Well i certainly didnt get no gapper and he certainly lost his cheese.
Jet might not have enough road experience, but I certainly do. He would have at least had a chance if I was helping with the managing.

Beard

Maybe now both Jet and Ed will ask for a refresher course.

People who have never played banks exclusively or almost exclusively don't realize how tough it is to play on a strange table, especially full-rack banks. There won't be a lot of simple straight-backs or cross-corners with 15 balls on the table. It's not like just learning the speed for one-pocket or nine-ball, you have to become intimately aware of every rail (6), every roll for pocket-speed banks and for playing safties. It's much tougher all around. He'll learn.

I loved playing banks and did O.K. but I hated strange tables.

Nice video, Red. But he'll never win a straight pool tournament.;) Maybe his best game is banks.
