That is a good list.Chohan
(in no order. well except for Tony)
Then i'm torn between Roberts/Frost/Calderone/Lunda
High dollar events have struggled to fill a field, which has led to the "David v. Goliath" formats seen at the Derby. Cheaper events insure a large field, which helps the room owner. It also satisfies our jones to play the champions. Most of the thriving events in the country are David v. Goliath formats. Only Buffalo's, Scotty Townsend and the Texas Open have high dollar events that have been successful. It will be interesting to see if he can get a full field for this event. Money seems to be cheaper these days and maybe 5K is not as bad as I think it is.
1. Tony Chohan: His tournament record speaks for itself
2. Alex Pagulayan: A little off his normal dominance
3. Chip Compton: Has dominated action matches, but indifferent in tournament play
4. Scott Frost: Mostly a tournament player now, is still a threat in any match
5. Josh Roberts: Most improved player in 2022.
6. Shane Van Boening: Still a threat, though does not play much.
7. Justin Hall: Perennial top 10
8. Fedor Gorst: Moving up quickly
9. Carlo Biado: Like Fedor, another contender learning quickly
10. Evan Lunda: Doesn't play much, but good finish at Buffalos
Honorable mention: Deuel, Gomez, Garcia, Calderon, Morra, Kiamco
We had an eight man at Lacy's Cue in 2016. Races to 7, best two players ended up in the finals. D. Smith double dipped Tony Chohan.From your "Top 10" thread:
Also a "full field" in this instance is only 8 players. That keeps it in reach, because there are definitely at least 8 players that can win, having shown they can against just the sort of player that is likely to get in.
