I watched part of Frank's match and it was 1-0 Frank, I went away for just a short time and when I came back i guess it was over because Wayne and John were getting ready to play.

Watched a lot of that match and yes, they may have missed some shots but I liked that final game they played hill/hill. Good back and forth and came down to where either guy could have won.

Table definitely seems slow and rails maybe not as live but its cool to see the game played on a 10 foot, changes the game quite a bit. You could for sure go for your hole a little more and leave the CB long up table near the rail and gl on your opponent making that shot...he would have to get out his binoculars.

Hopefully will get to catch some more this weekend, good luck today guys!

Great home room and great stream, thanks again Daniel!

(I have not been able to hear any of the commentary as I have it muted so it doesn't disturb my better half)

Enjoyable play from everyone. It's been a long time since I've played on a 10-footer, and of course the increased table dimension does make it seem slower; but the speed of the table they're using seems to me about the speed which most tables used to be-- certainly back in the '50s-'70s. In general the tables were slower than those of today. It took a good stroke to move the balls around the table for longer distances. The slightly slower speeds seemed beneficial for 9 ball, because the shooter could let out his stroke a little. But it makes it a little more challenging for 1P.

I was wondering that also. Daniel will probably post the match times soon. But it does say on the YT site that coverage begins each day at 10 A.M., so they may keep to the same schedule as they had yesterday.

The players are probably now just tearing into their Frosted Flakes and Ovaltine, although Phil seems more like a Starbucks and Skittles fan...

I'm just finishing my frosted flakes and Ovaltine and getting ready to head over there. First match is at 12 pm PST.

The table is very intimidating because it does play a bit slow and the banks need a bit of getting used to. There are a lot of shots that you want o shoot at but the distance makes you think twice about it. We'll see what happens to day. Enjoy the matches.

It is a challenging table Doc. I think Frank figured it out first to play as many shots as possible with center cue ball.

I had a little meltdown against Wayne and let him back in it 2/2, but I noticed he likes to spin the spot shots(I scratched a few times) and the added distance caused him problems with a shot he usually makes.

I am having a great time and it is nice to see some old friends and tee it up today with Frank.

Sorry I could not watch the match full time John, I had to go pull weeds in the yard. How about that Hermosa Beach. I would live there if I could afford it.
