One thing about Tony. All his matches are for big bucks. I don't know who I would take here until more details are announced.. but Shane seems to be on a mission this year.

By my count, and I could be wrong, Shane put up 13ea. 8-0s and 3ea 8-1s against Chip. Even if he had some opening, that's still strong.

Oh snap! This is going to be amazing! I thought Shane said he was totally booked up though? :LOL:
I'll be rooting for the big man since he's probably the underdog here, but I wouldn't bet much on it.
I'm predicting a close match, with SVB taking the win by just a few games.

It's hard to not like those elite shooters. SVB strikes the ball better than anybody on the planet. Imagine how good he would be if he actually liked One Pocket. 😳 He'd be unbeatable.
… I’m not sure about that. There is still the creative shot selection aspect of the game, which I still believe favors players (who can execute well) who have the mindset to sort through all those strange shot opportunities that are within the game of One Pocket, but not necessarily obvious. WWYD decision making can still be a difference maker — at any level of play 🤔

When you watch Tony in the booth and you listen to his analysis, you get the full picture of the one pocket genius he is. There is execution, and then there's conceptualization of the shot. Tony is peerless at finding a shot nobody else will shoot. Nobody can execute like SVB, but you can't execute it if you don't see it. Guys like Tony and to a lesser extent Alex and of course Danny Smith see the shot when it is not obvious.

This will be a good one to sweat. There's a big rivalry between these two.

Looks like it's coming to my Neighborhood...well at least my half of the planet. Anyone else planning on coming to Grif's for this?
