It looked to me like John got a little tired at then end and made a few careless shots the last two games. If he gets a good night's rest, we're really in for a nail-biter!

It is now 8-7 in games in favor of the Ghost and they seem to have unscrewed for the night. Gentile hitting balls on the table now...

The "Fat Lady" will sing for someone tomorrow, the Ghost has a slight edge!
Who knows, good luck to both players, it's a valiant effort on both there parts to help promote one pocket live streaming.

Not so Cory..John wasn't tired - he wanted to keep playing tonight but I didn't - I'm the one that gets tired, not John - he's an animal for his age...:heh

Our agreement is to play for 6 hours minimum, and then longer if both agree...tonight we quit after 6 hours...

Last night I stupidly got macho and played for 8-1/2 hours, and that was a mistake for me, big time...I was tired playing the last two games, and lost them both...I wasn't about to make that same mistake again tonight..and my stakehorse wouldn't let me keep playing longer tonight anyway, lol.

Good plan to be well rested for when the time comes for you to deliver the coup de grace tomorrow......round 3 start at 3? Its a really good match.....should be an acc-stats tape for learning.......picking up alot of things from you both.....although some of thoss things you should have shown me long before now....:eek:.......keep up the great play

It looked to me like it was John getting tired and you were coming on stronger and playing better towards the end today like Cory said.......anyways great playing by both.......

Well, I'll say this: I got a sweat bet on Ghost, just because I used to play at Chris's. But I'll be happy no matter the outcome--it's been a great match by two great players! I almost want John to win so we can see round two vs. stroud.

So today they'll tee it up for 2, 3, or 4 games for all the cheese. I suspect that by 7 P.M. they'll be into a few adult beverages and a re-hash of the contest...

BTW, where has Cardone been? It's not like him to stay so quiet. Might we see a Cardone/Henderson match-up?:cool:
