    play them game by game and not sets. then just quit them when they play slow and tell them why. they will speed up.
    Hey Beatle, how about we wire each player up with an electric shock device. After 45 or 60 seconds they get a good shock. Each time they fail to shoot within the specified time the amount off the shock gets increased. They can take as long as they want with no penalty as far as the game goes but they will get the shocks. Im sure with the appropriate amount of current slow play would become a thing of the past. The added benefit would be the enjoyment we viewers would get watching them vibrate when they get zapped. Keith

And though I thought he got the worst of the rolls by far, he didn't complain about that in his post at all...wish that were the case for all players.
      Amen, brother. Tony seems like a solid guy. He more than anyone else I know about stepped up for Cliff when Cliff had his stroke.

      • Here are some stats for the match. Sorry I neglected to post a link here last week. https://forums.azbilliards.com/showthread.php?t=499915

        • Distribution of lengths of games for days 3 and 4 (excludes Day 3's first 3 games, which took 90 minutes in total)
          ≤10 minutes -- 8 games
          11-20 minutes -- 11
          21-30 minutes -- 6
          31-60 minutes -- 9
          61+ minutes -- 0
          Total -- 34


          No games went over an hour. Only 9 games went over 30 minutes. What are you guys complaining about slow play? You are watching one of the greatest one pocket players on earth and you bitch that he doesn't shoot fast enough. Considering Alex and Dennis are the best players, and both look the table over more than we do, maybe we should consider slowing down our play a little and looking at our options a little more fully. Remember, only 9 games went over 30 minutes. Or maybe it doesn't take long to bunt the ball, which is what we do. They are looking to do more with their inning than just play a passive, defensive shot. It looked like Dennis put Tony in all kinds of traps during the four days. He wasn't doing that last year. He has definitely picked up his knowledge on defense and trapping.

            your point is understood
            and let me say you know what you are getting when dennis plays so you either watch or dont or play him or dont
            but length of game time is skewed to be shorter because both players run alot of balls or get out when they get to the first shot.
            if we took as much time as dennis to decide what to shoot and with our ball pocketing skills
            we may need to schedule out member only tournaments for one week / race to 2....

                Agreed. I think Alex and Dennis have just an amazing amount of focus and concentration. Their ability to sustain those two things over long sessions, continually looking for a better option even if it's not the most obvious, is partly what makes them so hard to beat.

                  I agree Joe, good point...usually if someone is the best in the world at something or one of the best, people will try to emulate them so not sure why this is any different.

                  Personally though, it's hard for me to play opponents who take too long like this.

                  • they play way too slow. but their slow games get over faster than weaker players that are slow because they run out so much. other slow players make the games last way too long for anyone to watch or want to play with them.

                    i have quit many slow players and told them they had to raise the bet up way higher or play much faster or the game is over. one good reason not to play sets with anyone.
