Default Frost vs. Smith in New Orleans

Day one Recap:

The players have agreed to play a minimum of 8 hours per day in this 8 ahead set, with additional play with mutual consent. My assessment after a day one that ended in a tie.

This is dead gambling. Scott is a little off in his ball running and has admitted that the table is tough and the conditions are different than the desert where he plays. According to Frost, there were 8 games where he got to seven and lost. What does that tell you? He's rusty and Smith is a dangerous man.

Overall summary so far:

Moving: no advantage
Ball running: Smith
Banking: Smith
Playing the score: Frost
Demeanor/intangibles: Smith

Frost's backers were offering 2-1 odds for the first hour. Once they saw how the games were going, the odds went down to +140 if you bet Smith. After four hours, it was an even bet. It kind of reminded me of the election. One candidate was a perceived favorite, but as the votes came in, the odds began to move in the favor of the underdog.

Day 2 starts at 5:00 pm. No stream.

If you guys are anywhere near New Orleans or can find a way to get down to Buffalo's to sweat this do it.

The styles both these guys play is attacking, aggressive power one pocket at the highest level.

Unfortunately no stream for this match so the only way to sweat it is old school you have to go watch it in person.

Thanks for the updates Joe,great job and keep them coming.

I'm surprised that Scott was able to do as well on the first day as he did. That 4-1/8" table under the N.O. humid conditions plays like it's 3-7/8". Scott is used to Ariz. dry, fast sliding cloth with pockets that will accept a less than perfect hit. He'll likely improve as he adjusts.

This match has turned into a war of attrition. After 24 hours of play, the coin sits at even. It will be interesting how the older player's body holds up after all this stress and play. Scott is nearly 44 years old and Danny is only 31 or 32. While Scott is by no means old, he is not in peak condition and has not been playing competitively for three years. By contrast, Danny gambles every week and has played in many wars over those same three years. Day two was a 15 hour war. How does your body bounce back after playing 15 hours?

Prediction: The longer it goes, the better for the younger player in better playing shape.

If you have had a broken neck, you bounce back in a couple of daze.

Scott's game has deteriorated little by little over the last five years or so. He is not as hungry as he once was. On the other hand Danny's game has improved as he stays in action competing at the highest levels. I used to like Scott's game but I'm not so sure anymore. He used to be in the top three One Pocket players but now he's in the top ten. If he wins it will be a struggle for him and if this session lasts awhile I like Danny.

I watched him play in a tournament here in Kentucky before Derby. It wasn't pretty. He must have been practicing this spring to even play par with Danny.
