Well said on all of this. And because I am not a night owl that could last until the end any of these nights, LET ME SAY AGAIN, it's like Christmas morning waking up to see that now Day 4 is also up as a "watch at your own convenience" video -- over 10 hours just the final day of some of the greatest One Pocket ever seen, with absolutely top notch commentary!Couple of thoughts to end the match, I believe its very hard to argue that Alex isnt the GOAT at this point and is a a fantastic ambassador for the game, his honest approach and fair play stand out.
Chips plan to more everything up table against Tony seems kinda silly now, Tony showed out up table this week.
Jeremy Jones is just crazy good in the booth, sometimes I'll even watch rotation ( like watching paint dry normally ) just because he's calling the match.
Poolactiontv is still the best in the business, I really enjoyed @Terry Hanna breakdowns in his updates here on the board, his knowledge of the game sometimes takes a backburner to just posting fliers ect, and imo Ray is very underappreciated with 20years under his belt provding content we would have never even had.
A black is the same as a redI have not seen a Diamond table bank this well and also be this responsive around the pockets. Is it a special set up? I have heard of Diamond offering a special set up. Are those Black Diamond Cushions?
On the Z bank that was played the cushions acted properly, and I also noticed on double cross corner banks they acted more normally than I am accustomed to witnessing on Diamond tables.
I wish Terry wouild compile a short clip of the various banks the players performed in this match. I know he has done this for us in the past. There were a lot of cross corner amazing banks, especially either off the point or close to it.
Thanks for the match, it was really a great one?
Scott & JJ were a great pair. The looping feature is also a very positive upgrade!Scott and JJ together in the booth were really good to listen to. I had the feeling they have not shared that kind of commentary that much, and if that is true, that might have contributed to the appeal of it from my perspective. The reason being, there was a fair amount of conversational strategy talk between them, of a general nature, which was very interesting. Kind of like they were picking each other's brains, and we got to listen in!!
Again, I am so grateful to PoolActionTV for putting the "on demand" files up for the last two days -- I am still working my way through them, because those two days alone were nearly 24 hours of top level One Pocket!
Steve Lomako compared these matches to the Efren Cliff matches that happened at Derby City back about 15 years ago. I was fortunate to witness a couple of those and they stand as the greatest One Pocket that I have ever witnessed. But like Steve, I would put this match in that category. Really top notch stuff!!
