The Hustlers just about to come on TruTV
What I meant by lecturing -- from what I could hear on the stream it sounded like Billy might have been emphasizing the importance of maintaining control of the cue ball to a higher degree -- possibly versus moving more balls (power One Pocket). Keep in mind some of this is my opinion because I only got little snippets from the stream -- but what I was hearing from Billy meshes with my own opinion regarding Scott's game the last year or so, which is that he (Scott) was putting a little too much focus on the power One Pocket side of the game, and consequently the cue ball was leaking out a little more than is desirable against formidable foes like this kind of field. My opinion, that was costing Scott matches over the last year or so. From Billy's lecture it sounded like he was giving Scott credit for reigning in whitey a little more.Billy lecturing Scott Frost about controlling the cue ball, lol. Frost apparently won his match against JJ.
He had trouble with his right eye last night. He took a break and washed his face.They are talking about Alex doing a lot of squinting, as if he is having trouble with his eyes -- I wonder if it is the smoke, and that might bother Alex?? It doesn't seem to be bothering his ball pocketing though, lol as he just ran out to take a 2-1 lead.
Yeah that game looked like it was going to go Scott's way, but then he (Scott) misplayed position when he had two balls on the doorstep of his pocket, and ended up only making one of them and chasing the other one away accidentally. Then it almost seemed like Scott played an ill advised bank out of frustration, which almost went, but did not, and Alex took over from there to win.
