Another 8 and out, Gorst on the hill. An hour and a half and he's ran out so many times he's finishing the set in record time.

Not sure what was said but they said Scott asked Fedor if he wanted to play for $500 a game after the match

I told myself not to pay to watch Fedor play any more after Buffalos. He must have speeded up some since the tournament. All the table staring and chalking that tip 10 times between shots. He had to have speeded up to beat Scott that fast. And thanks 1pwannebe for the response and updates

When you watch frost pre shot routine versus fedors it's like they're playing a different game. We've got a 47 year old former champion who is overweight who does not study the stack who runs to the shot before the queue ball quits rolling. No pre shot routine body is out of balance strokes do not look fluid. Contrast that with a man who has perfect pre shot routine, perfect balance perfect tempo and knows how to run balls when they're not gettable.. How do you Not move the balls out of play when your opponent has that much advantage over you in running balls?

I believe that kinda routine is also what made Scott great in his 20s and 30s, his autopilot was disabled by age and like most of us it takes a lot of time to truely let that sink in and make real adjustments.

Scotts autopilot is what supported his crazy high confidence, which also fades into the night with age.

He's a HOF One Pocket Champion, if he wants to dedicate the time to redevelop that Mojo at 47 yrs young more power to him, but how often have you really seen that.

He'll never be the shot maker he once was, but that doesn't mean he forgets all his knowledge. When playing a Dennis, or an Alex, or a Tony, you have to slow them down. Playing Fedor means pushing the balls up table and using your knowledge to offset the fire power. When you give up a shot, you give up one ball. Scott never even tried to do that. In three days, the longest game was 61 minutes once. The average game today lasted 13 minutes. Missing balls is understood and forgivable. Playing right in to your opponent's strength is unforgivable when you are a Hall of Famer. Very disappointed.

Fedor is learning the One Pocket "moves" pretty damn fast. His banking is already top of the food chain, and his ball running is about 2 balls above the top of the food chain. He is turning into the monster that Artie B wanted to create lol.

Scott did not appear to be quite on top of his game either -- say compared to Buffalo's or the other recent tournaments that he has played in. It appeared that he really would have benefited from a challenging tuneup match before playing Fedor, to get sharp. There was something on Facebook about him being busy with a fireworks business in the weeks before the match. It looked like that took a toll.
