    Not quite correct. Although all three know the game quite well, Bernie and John Henderson are excellent in the booth, Jerry however, is not.

    The huge problem with Jerry's commentating arises from his being way too 'in your face' opinionated. That strong opinionating of his wouldn't be as bad if he was always correct with what he is saying, but he is not. He is constantly saying "that was a bad shot", or "I don't like that shot" when in fact at least half of the times that he says that he is mistaken, and the shot that Shane, Alex, Dennis, etc. shot was not a bad choice at all. This is very annoying.

    And yes, I know the game of one pocket quite well. I've been playing the game and watching champions play it since the Rack in Detroit was gambling central 50 years ago.

    Bernie and John Henderson on the other hand, keep their ego's in check, and do a more realistic job of commentating on the shot situations and in critiquing what the player has chosen.

    If Jerry happens to read this, hopefully he will take it as constructive criticism.

      Im at my phone right now and cant properly elaborate. But we have to agree to disagree. All i can say is i too have been around pool since 64. So over 50 years. Jerry is a fine commentator and is knowledgeable and your criticism is your opinion. Just as those on the chatline seem to agree that Matchin was excellent.

      But whats important here is that POV keep improving each year and their improvements have been impressive.

        I think you are badly mistaken. I won't speculate -- I have no idea -- why you see/hear this so much differently than I. I really enjoy Jerry's commentary, as I do Hendy's and Bernie's.

            Obviously and understandably, in this type of situation, the members of this forum who disagree with me will post up to defend Jerry, but the people who agree with me will not say so here in public. One member has pm'ed me though, to say that he agrees with me.

              I found all three of our guys excellent! Much appreciated.
              Mitch needs to remember to play the score and that it's better to win than to look like a hero.

                I'm just happy to be watching some 1P. I crashed on my bicycle and have to take some time off from playing. I'm hoping to recover enough to drive to Houston for the TopWater tournament. I appreciate all the commentary.

                I'm also still recovering from my loss in the finals in Chicago. I have so many mistakes still rolling around in my head. I know I'm human and not a pro, it's a little comforting to know even the top guys sometimes lose when they had their chance. I do love one pocket and continue striving to learn more and apply that knowledge to improve my consistency.

                  I agree with Mitch. All 3 are good .
                  I would like to say that this is by far the best/clearest stream that I can remember ever seeing. Hasn't stalled/ froze yet for me. Kudos to Daniel and company! I stopped ppv for that reason. I pay hard earned $ to constantly refresh. Whatever he's doing keep it up.~T

                      Jim, were you thinking about your loss in the finals while riding your bike before the accident? Let it go, man, you played great.

                      Heal up my friend.

                        Nope I was wrong. 2 Filipino's. Sounds like a great title for a HBO series.
                        Alex skunked Shane and he will meet Dennis tonite at 8PM PST for the title.

                          Take a chill pill OldSchool.

                          I don't know Baby Huey, but my hombre Miller claims to have made his acquaintance. Didn't watch the stream but imagine you could do a lot worse than a man who obviously knows the game.

                          Don't piss on a guy's head and tell him that it's raining.

                            West Coast Challenge 1-Pocket FINALS!
                            Dennis Orcollo vs. Alex Pagulayan
                            In this true double elimination, Alex will have to double dip, Dennis to win.

                                John Henderson in the booth for the finals -- very good to listen to him!
