"And you talk about the first opportunity that you've had in quite some time to to relax. And not have to think about the next tournaments. I mean you've been plan plan as a crow for for close to twenty years. Have you your true Playing already since. I'm six. So i started when i was six up late the first tournaments when i was like eight or nine one. The first man tournament in my In my state. When i was ten of us first time you've been champion with eleven so I had no clue how it is to be one year. You know at home. I think the last time that it was that case was like when i was. I don't know maybe fifteen or something Because there were always tournaments must state or in australia or even playing. The euro tour doesn't matter which one so it was Was really worked. Really hard to to believe what's going on in the world so for an average an average tournament year. What's the longest period of time. You really get to sit home and not have to concentrate on the next tournament while really sit home and the not even playing ola. Think it's about maybe two weeks or something but the like go. The maximum just sitting at home during tournaments is i think the maximum is maybe a month or maybe little bit more than a month like in summertime. I had done an interview and we're talking about when you first got started. I had done an interview with jasmine. She had come over in and played in bob amateur. Wpa events and at the time you know she was the big story and it was kind of just a side story. Oh well her brother plays pool two. And i remember her saying that. You weren't sure at that time if being professional players really what you wanted to do. How does i mean you obviously had the talent. So what goes into a decision like that While the problem was The the biggest problems ahead. When i was like sixteen to eighteen because a grew. Yeah true too fast. I got taller and taller but never changed my technique so it got worse. I i couldn't make a long putts anymore and i was feeling very horrible and that was already looking for jobs. And maybe stop playing pool because I just got punished at every tournament. it was really horrible for two years and then i started to work With a guy from the federation and he gave me some some tips about technique and the changed a little bit and actually it gotten better and better almost every day and That the safe my career. I would say and the rest they say is history world nine ball championship. You'd want a european fourteen one championship world cup of pool twice. China open mosconi cup. The first time was in vegas two thousand fifteen.

"You know, how could they not right because the well we're trying to do is build the purses and and have more tournaments. So if that's happening, I would think the support from the players should be home. Actually. I think it would just only benefit them as in a short-term answer. It would just benefit them in the long term. No problem. I mean no questions asked it's just basically adding, you know their name. And and I want to change gears for a second back to you personally. Now you have you have a huge resume in the game u.s. Open 9-ball Champion US Open Market Champion runner up at the world 9-ball. And now you have you know, seven-time player Captain A Team USA. You've become one of the top commentators in the game. How did that come along? I mean what got that started and and what do you think it is that makes you as sought after as a commentator As You Are Well, I mean first off the information is pretty pretty good kind of know all games pretty well that helps so, you know, there's a a lot of material that I've done so people feel pretty well, you know pretty good about hiring me but it kind of start I believe really I remember correctly. I started doing it at the world nine-ball championships. And then with Sid Waddell, I don't remember sit or not. He was a he was a thousand. Yeah, he was great great commentator. And and so I started doing it with Sid which would sit made it easy. He was always a lot of fun. So I had the little success doing it there and then I started off just to do it, you know for a few companies will action t a key stats. And it just kind of went from there and and it's weird because I kind of grew up. You know, when we grew up Mike. I didn't have cable TV until later in life. But you know, there was like Monday Night Football there was of course a few games on Sunday commentators for the World Series and what not, but the commentators in my mind were kind of part of the show off. Whereas when I watch a lot of games these days or when I did last year year before I didn't know half the commentators, you know, when they were telling me what was going on with the football game, but I grew up watching Howard Cosell a lot and stuff like that. So I always kind of like the commentators be honest with you Frank Gifford. I believe was one of them to you see another Sid Waddell in the game right now, you know what he brought to commentary. Well, he was pretty unique. That's for sure and a lot of experience. I mean, of course you just didn't do pool Affiliates. It's pretty awesome. He's definitely changed than said you can't really replace it. But feel is very very good. A lot of fun very knowledgeable always says the right thing at the right time seems like uh, so everybody I've worked with I would say feel silly 8 and close as you can get and and and to come back around to Team USA you recently announced your five players and and the first 4 Picks. I mean those were packed automatic. You were successful the last two years with Tyler. Why wasn't Tyler automatic? Well, I mean, I think it'd be silly to look at anybody is automatic. Of course, there were three names in my mind that made the team that way, you know, you could be as close to automatic as you get I guess and.

"Welcome back to American Billiard Radio today is September twenty fifth. A little bit late in the week like I mentioned last week. I already had an interview in the cancer. So I certainly wasn't going to let that go by that interview is with Nate Mendham of the it up podcast and natives also organizing big virtual ten ball events that I will let him tell you about when we get to that interview before we move onto that a little bit of news. You know it's been said that when this virus? Is finally hundred control and that people are able to come back to pool rooms that it's going to be like a mad rush of people. I. Don't know that this is really indie indicator, but you know we mentioned last week the regional tours are starting to come back. There's even a new regional tour that kicked off in Quebec which. My understanding is that the the virus is not hitting them as hard as it is here in the states but the Predator Quebec pro-am tour kicked off last weekend. No Real surprised Danny, Hewitt going through the field undefeated, they have an interesting format where. Qualifiers on Saturday from those two qualifiers four players from each one advance to a sixteen player bracket on Sunday in a different room. We'll see how it goes. Canada's has always had A. A. Number of different regional tours they usually seem pretty successful. It's been hard for us to get information on some of those stops but. We didn't have a whole lot of problem with this I stopped from Quebec. other regional tour news, the peach, our northeast women's tour Linda. Shea one that one. The DFW nine ball tour Dallas Fort Worth Area Jeff Franklin one that he beat Arizona's Gosper Sinoe in the finals a nice little side note on that dfw nine ball tour stopped sixty eight players in that one. So yeah, they're they're coming back fairly strong. another good turnout was at the queue city nine ball tour. In Gastonia North, Carolina, they had sixty three players and Stevie mcclinton won that one. You know we have so much news. We talk so much about events that are still being canceled This week was a prime indicator with the Atlantic Challenge Cup being canceled, but a little bit of good news. With. With my soapbox rant last week about. Tournaments being scheduled on top of each other I was in touch with Mike Duggan. Just wanting to check with him to make sure that yes, everything's is still. all-systems-go for the January turning stone classic and the Good News is Mike contacted the casino and he says that the tournament is still on as far as they are concerned. January. Seventh through the Tenth 2021. Turning. Stone Classic Thirty Four. So. Hopefully, things stay that way, and hopefully that tournament is able to happen. Of course, like we talked about last weekend. It would be happening at the same time as a big event in Alabama and a big events somewhere in the world with the. World Pool Championship not the World Nine Ball Championship the World Pool? Championship. In other news. Emily mentioned last week that. Really, as long as people are talking about your event, they consider that a good thing. Whether they're happy or not with what's going on if that's the case then emily's gotta be ecstatic right now because Jeremy announced this week, his fifth player for team, USA and that fifth player was not Tyler Star it was Chris Robinson. It's been a controversial pick. That's that puts things mildly..

"That's that's the thing we have. The beauty of of coal we have such a mixture and a variety of players look at last year's Mosconi Cup team. You've got five. Super individual players from the U. S they bring something entirely different team. And it's great that you have those five different personalities everyone wants to know about them everyone wants to know what they're thinking. And that's that's what we're doing in our post-match interviews and. Media, views all of these zoom Kohl's the happening moment every quiet gets announced. The MOSCONI Cup is a one on one interview to hit the play his thoughts. That's what everyone to be hearing. They want to know what the players thinking, and so all of these is two things that we're doing at the moment when tournaments happening, we're trying to drive content. Trying get more interviews out there. It's just all it's doing is building the brand and building the place images. In in the couple of years that you've been in the position. There's a lot that has happened with matchroom and American Pool. You guys obtained the US Open obtained the World Nine Ball Championship. A. Match Room has always been there, and Mosconi Cup has always been the biggest draw that Matra had at least..

"P. shower northeast women's tour they're having a stop at so. Part of the part of the problem with the calendar was knowing which events that were on the were still happening in which ones weren't The JP nude event is definitely happening. In Online Pool News, which is virtual tournaments playing the ghost I understand you know. When you describe it that way it interests me about as much as trick shots but. Honestly you know the people who are doing. This are doing a bang-up job I mean they're really doing a great job and one of the big ones is one sports TV. They have their one Pool Women's Cup September twenty first through the twenty seventh novel last. Song that event Jasmina Sean was one of the players in it and the other three I wasn't really familiar with I'm sure they're going to announce more and I'll include link in the show notes to the page on facebook for. That, particular event. In other news hey, you know what? I did two shows in a row. So I'm allowed to get back on my soapbox and that's where I'm going. Saw last night that an event was scheduled January sixth through the tenth in Birmingham Alabama ten thousand dollars added five thousand added one pocket five, thousand added nine ball that it's fantastic great event for the players to enjoy going to. Unless, they were thinking about going to turning stone that week which has been on the schedule since the Stone Age. Or maybe they wanted to go to the world nine ball championship which Mash Room has already announced. They were having that week. I don't understand how it is that we can have these tournaments scheduled with no attention being paid to what might already be scheduled out there look at what Daniel Bush does on the West Coast Daniel Bush with Pov Pool. He puts together that West Coast swing. You have events lined up room after room and when you've got four or five high-dollar, let's say there were four or five, ten thousand dollars added events in. Four five different states and they were just scheduled. One right after the other just like Daniel does on the west coast. How did the chances change between getting the top player for one ten thousand dollar added events or getting the top players who are traveling from state to state in four or five different ten thousand dollar added events. That's where the players come to. You want the best players in the world work together under it. It's I. Just don't understand the concept, and this is something that gets touched on briefly in this week's interview with emily when she talks about what happens with super billiards expo and that scheduling snafu. Again. One Central Location to look for tournaments that are on the schedule. I've suggested easy billiards of course, suggested easy billiards. That's what I'm going to do doesn't have to be easy billiards. It can be any sight out there. We just need one that's agreed on by everybody. But this is a conversation that we've had many times in the past and I'm sure we're going to have many times in the future. So let's move on to this week's interview..

"You knew you had one shot at this and you were ready for it yet the end and then came to the ears which were you know tremendous growth years for me classify that as kind of clever kind of almost say Muzak or something to the carpenters the the carpenters they prayed a time I think a studios right and I I asked part Karen Karen I'm gene Elliott just got signed PNM's Oh good to meet you and I said can I ask you a question that's weren't but I mean the last the eagles come out in their suddenly this country rock you know or or you've got all sorts of very it seemed like it started in the late sixties and into the early seventy as you head everything from James Taylor to Chicago and brass bands you know it seemed like everything was open at that time we had such fusion was in Paris in the eighteen nineties when he's interested as renoirs you know to chagall's that we're actually combining classical art with modernism and and and same thing with music reveal themselves and debussy expression impressionism was really a combination of folk music with what later would become jazz with classical music with with music was actually a real music Princeton rebel would would employer out of a Basque music I don't know idea that okay now you're educating me here all right so with with music in the seventies uh we would try our best to imply all these different nuance Genres to mainstream music for me it was yes of course Ban some folks always lyrically based a little bit of Jazz Combo stuff a little bit rock stuff a little bit of our NBC love you know and some stuff that I couldn't really you know Categorize at all so it was always a combination of many music I liked big band but I refuse to use ordinary big band sound okay a horn section I wanted to do with synthesizers and I wanted to Caricature is the big band sound and that's what we had and powerful people and dumb it's on just to the Gemini and very powerful layered stuff almost in a minute he's a strange comparison maybe I'm reaching for something but almost kind of like filled with Phil Spector with his wall of sound in in Simpler Times he tried to make them seem lush and and deeper rather than just you know three chords and Bass Drum and guitar here well you know my tensions for Harmonic d easy it's always made it more difficult you know to arrange orchestrate In those days there were no such thing as polyphonic synthesizer it's no it was monoplane that means you have to pay one or the time so if you did a horn section or violence section with six to ten those whatever it is we have to play once a one note at a time and then and then doubled it you know perks go back and do it again exactly yeah right and then lay on another track here right yeah it wasn't that easy but gave us out you know and it was it was something unique confessional it was time for for not only you know William time for a burgeoning time for music and it was lovely and the eighties with again was different music was tightening up but music up I wanted to open myself up to new influences and I thought were no more influences you know in music that I thought especially mainstream music could really influenced me in the way that I wanted so I went off into poetry land and I went off into literature and went back to the college and and I I went into the humanity in theology got well subsequently really affect the way I recorded yonder tree subsequent album so during that period of exploration I'm sorry to train rush the story but we got about five or seven minutes left here during that period of time you can dropped out of public view the church changed we had new wave music and and punk and it's almost like they wanted to go back to super simple again here they didn't want our castrations they didn't want lush they wanted stripped down sounds again here did did that change your flavor your quest or you're just on your own as you said mission quest here to find your own voice your own stories well I I played a little bit that game you know with black cars and hurts to be in love and wild horses and we had reasonable success with it and But I just by by the time the late eighties came I was not interested and in in mainstream music anymore I just was not it wasn't interesting to me more people were just trying to hit the bottom line or the lowest common denominator to attract an audience and that we tried to manufacture it hit rather than make music that really came from the artist right that's exactly so so in in in late eighties nineties that went off into my own thing and and worked with big orchestras you know and even record a full on orchestral concerts we oriented album like condo and so I and then I lived for two or three years and the melons and worked with touchy dishes and according to Nelson call a good thing so I for people who follow what I do you know the cardinal rule was stay interested as you stay interested you might be interesting there you go all right so I gotTa tell you what interested me when I went to your website talk about your interest in singing and other languages that seems far afield from anything else I could have imagined and I've looked at this piece I don't know when it was recorded this Canto and yeah it's spectacular. I Dunno where it would play today I don't know what station would run it except on the Internet there are no stations like us you know it's it's anything in everything and I I'm not trying to just blow smoke at your but your voice is never been better your interpretation I mean it just move me to listen to this piece and I have wow that's something this guy has still you know so often we think well the artist is coming back to just recreate their hits and and we're going to relive those days again here you've in directions nobody could have followed her imagine and you're hitting it well you know I I love doing that I just recently did a from the new Wilderness Road L. CO wrote Redemption. I did that in Spanish with a friend of mine from Argentina I'll a hundred learner and it's called El Camino de don't and it was really fun you know it's on my facebook I it's really a I really enjoyed singing in Spanish it's not that easy if you don't thing in Spanish that he do just phonetically learn the phrases like like how I read about pop stars try and record in Japanese or something just because wanted to a foreign language version of their song and they would they had no idea what they were saying but they would have to learn it phonetically I the method actor way I e I became an I studied what what the translation was all about really internalize it and of course Alejandro help with pronunciation but I knew exactly what I was thinking when I was saying then that really was the impetus for for my thing so why sing in foreign languages it's hard enough to say that can do certain things in those languages that I can't do an English like what what would you say the language has a different sound has different meanings it has another certain different phrases that don't translate English and well a certain sound for instance in Italian the vowels are bigger longer wider and Spanish there are more intricate consonance a for instance they're like the song a Roach redemption the English version is so long road to redemption John that's what it is in English and Spanish sickest lot of glass Giannino Day I don't know why but that sounds more mandic and lyrical to me just just I have no idea what you're saying which is the sound of it in Spanish or Italian like they have to really time your continent and then on a challenge I love you know but I like to sing things that are meaningful and I think that's why people still come Syr concerts because I'm not just running through the hit although we do that right advantage that's the starting point not the ending point you're starting with here's where we were and here's where I've gone yeah I mean when we it's fun to do night Walker it's fun to brother brother in Appalachia and all that but it's also you know fun for me to pick up the guitar and do something beautiful from from wilderness road you know and I I just you know look I mean music is just more than sound it's what lies behind the sound that is the impetus for the sound is the intention behind the sound that that really still gets to me on deep level well I'll tell you what I heard your music which I had not heard the stuff if you're talking about here in some foreign languages like the can't is it a canto the piece that up on your site there you playing with unofficial brother playing on piano or somebody Don Wow it's just below video go check it out everybody your website is a g I N V dot Com Link Valley facebook you know we have a bunch of videos on there I love doing in fact we're shooting another video on Monday at a local pool hall and a Video and we'll end the piece here for many years you would know this I went from being a DJ to being an entertainment publicist I handled Johnny Mathis and Anthony Quinn a whole bunch of people and then i to produce the world nine ball championship mental these guys from the old Steve Ms Rex up to the modern era how I fell into and so we're chatting with emerging and halfway through the callers Paul it turned out that they were blind and I said incredulously you like pool somebody would start breaking the balls in crowd would gather we wouldn't do anything just the sound of that's an attractive sound so I challenge you to think about how you can incorporate some of that in to your music because I think you'll find amazing I'm GONNA use a lot of the breaking the of the balls to to accentuate some of the you know the the open evaluated by the F._D._a. this product is not intended to diagnose treat cure or prevent any disease..

"Roll acts and everything in between I mean there was a rich environment it seems like well they had I mean a lot of ars that I really really admired including Ken Stevens Joe Cocker Right Carpenters and in Quincy Jones and George Harrison made a deal with them and oh king made a deal with them and so I mean they they they were really the the most famous and the best independent label you know in the world at that time and it was really an honor and privilege to be they found artists was not the carpenter viewpoint I I confess I was a big carpenters fan too and and era when that was kind of could be seen as UN cool this kind of I mean she sang so magnificently but this kind of lush almost like The throwback to the forties and fifties kind of music orchestral kinds of songs to Joe Cocker. I mean you know there's there's a wide range between those audiences in those south but they seem to be able to find artists in niches and develop that in a way that others wouldn't or couldn't they weren't just bound to afford formula I remember the first week that I just went to the ATM studios and of course her was producing crazy himself and Karen Carpenter's coming in and she was rolling her drums in and You know I was star struck with all the great artists going in and out of A and studios right and I and I I asked part Karen Hi Karen I'm gene Elliott just got signed PNM's Oh good to meet you and I said can I ask you a question that's weren't why are you rolling your own drum and she's never stopped being Rhody I love it I love it all right so you're in this rich environment and you flourish and and described the music I don't WanNa put my own classification on it but it's not the it it was a very lush to me a very orchestral kind of sound to this it wasn't just your typical top forty pop music and yet it played on the pop charts how how would you how would you classify where does it fit I may I know artists hate to do that. but for those who may be younger and they're trying to understand what that time was like what what was your music about well you have to you know give the audience a backdrop and the backdrop was in the seventies music was the thing in people's lives and the music was exploding in the sense that music was fusing into all these new ones dial yeah combining styles calling fusion but I mean the eagles come out in their suddenly this country

"Everyone. Welcome back to American billiard radio. Today is Thursday may second and I know to episodes in two weeks. It's it's shocking. I don't know what's going on. I still think it's leftover energy from the the enthusiasm that that Nate was showing from the queue it up podcast before. I get started on Nate has again to episodes of the queue it up podcast this week. And I know that the one he dropped today. Thursday may second is a three way conversation that he and Mark Wilson I had about the US open and the streaming kind of expanding on my little rant from last week. I'm not going to get too much into that rant right now. Today's episode is all about the US open, though, we have a US open champion. I talked to Jay Helford this week. Jay was at the US open hoping to cover it for. Z billiards. And honestly, Jay's Ben at the US open year after year, and he's ran tournaments and promoted tournaments and played internment. And really he has much more experience in turnament than well than I possibly have. Before we get to that though. We have a couple of winners. Kevin Chang won the WPA Players Championship. That was the fifty thousand dollar vent that took place just before the US open. Carlo Biondo took second you. Lung Chang took third in this event. Any also took third in the US open, which that's a pretty good finish for two third place finishes. He ended up with seventeen thousand in prize money. Kevin chang. One ten thousand for firsthand Carlo Bianco, one seven thousand for second Johan Chula finished tied with you. Lung Chang for third place now while that event was kind of a a lead in to the US open. I understand that that's not necessarily going to be the case forever. There's already talk of a second event hands the WPA doesn't know when or where they will schedule that. But I guess they're not stressing over making sure that takes place before another major tournament. As far as major tournaments go. Josh Wolff filler won the US open for for anyone who didn't watch it happen online, he defeated Wu shushing in the finals. Woo was was down five racks. And all the talk was the five racks that he had broken ran fifteen years ago when he won the world nine ball championship. He want to and broke the third rack left himself jacked up over ball hand when he got into his stance to address the cue ball. He tapped the four he knew what he did. Nigel Reese knew what he did. Woo. Woo stepped away from the shot Nigel called the foul and filler ran out. Don't in any way. Think though that filler backed into that title. Yeah. He got a couple of roles, but everybody's going to get roles. You're not gonna win a tournament like that without getting a role here and there, and I would be willing to bet that there were other players got roles against him to Josh was very deserving champion. He played great. He now holds the world nine ball championship and the US open nine ball championship. Like Jay mentions in the interview. It's the first time that anyone has done that since Earl Strickland a long long long time ago. Filler is certainly the front runner for player of the year. But we've got a lot more events to be played. We had a a little it was a challenge match. It wasn't necessarily an action match. Shane van boning played Joan Lin Chang Chang had a huge lead after day one of this event. It was an overall race to fifty. So when one of the players got to twenty five on day one they stopped at for the night. They came back the second night. Second night was last night. Shane made a huge comeback. I know at one time Chang was head twenty one to four. I don't know the final score as of day one. I wanna say it was like twenty five eleven something like that Shane made a comeback but Chang held on fifty to forty three. So that earns Chang entry into the tournament that was talked about on last week's show the twenty thousand dollars tournament that'll take place believe they said it was a week after derby city. Also, I don't think it was yesterday. Maybe it was the day before it either way. It was announced that on August. I Justin Bergman will face Shane van boning that will be on pool action. Tv takes place at club. Be billiards. In Wichita, Kansas. Ten ball race to twenty five. Best of five sets one. Per day. So he could go three sets could go five sets twenty thousand dollar entry per side. So forty thousand in the middle again. That's august. I put it on your calendar. Now, at least the first second third. Justin Bergman, Shane van boning pool. Action tv. So like I said I sat down with Jay Helford this week. We talked mainly about the US open talked a little bit about his books, and he even mentioned that he's got a tournament again that he's working on. So without further ado, I give you to pay J J Horford. I'm very proud to be joined from California. How long have you been back in California from the end of the open three days three days, still fresh in

"Hello everyone. Welcome to another episode of American billiard radio today is Friday December fourteenth. I realized that normally the the episode comes out on Thursday. But my interview for this week got pushed back a little bit. Nevertheless here. I am are interviewed this week is Mosconi Cup. MVP Schuyler Woodward. We'll get to that in just a minute. The biggest news, and there's actually quite a bit of news this week. But of course, the biggest news is Mosconi Cup. We have a team USA winning the Mosconi Cup for the first time in eight years team USA one days one two and three all three of those days three two wins. So they came in nine and six on the final day album. Sean lost a scholar Woodward. The first match of the day put team USA on the hill. And then team Europe start. Making their comeback. Shaw beat star five three Nils beat Corey five. One Kaci beat Thorpe five to that left at ten nine USA and Shane van boning came in and put Alex Kazakh away five three you had to feel for Alex Tzakas and Kaci both. They both looked very uncomfortable under the lights of Mosconi Cup and under that kind of pressure. They commented on the on the matches that were broadcast on Facebook live that it was the first time Caccia had played in front of a crowd that big somebody who didn't have any problem with that crowd was Jason Shaw. Jason he seems to like to play the the role of the villain. I mean, of course, over in Europe. He's not the villain. But. You certainly can't question that he has out there. He seems to thrive on that atmosphere, and Albany even commented on it that he couldn't do it. But the Jason he really pumps himself up with that atmosphere. Yeah. Have to hand it to team USA though, they started off down zero two and then Tyler star beat mills fine and Tyler commented after the match that he told Joe Hong that he wanted Nils in that first round match in you wanted him. And he got him. I don't think enough can be said about Tyler's win in that third match on day one. That really got the ball rolling for team USA gave them the momentum to go ahead. Three two. Once they had the lead today to the it looked like they started to believe they could win. And at the same time team Europe looked like they started to believe they could lose. And where for the last eight years we've watched team USA under that kind of pressure and making mental errors and missing balls. They would never miss. This time. It was team Europe. That did that it was it was very interesting to watch. Of course, it's interesting to watch. I mean, it's the Mosconi Cup. But every pool fan around the world. I'm sure was watching match rooms got to be real pleased with the turnout from the event they've already announced dates for next year and the final day of the event will take place on Thanksgiving Day in Las Vegas. It should be interesting to see how that affects their turnout. One of the comments that a number of people were making about Mosconi Cup was that the table was accepting a lot of shots that you wouldn't think it would accept. They play on a Rassam table. Of course, both players play on the same table. You know, everybody says that I did hear a comment from someone that the shelves were not as deep as some other tables that undoubtedly caused the table to play a little easier again as the event went on. It looked like team USA accepted in their mind that the table was going to take some shots that they ordinarily would not have tried in towards the end you could see both teams shooting shots knowing that they didn't have to hit the heart of the pocket. The reason I mentioned this is because the news came out today that match room and Razan have announced a new three year deal where Rasim will be the exclusive table for the mattress events. So you can look for a Rasim table at the US open world pool masters Mosconi Cup, the whole nine yards in other news on you. You won her third women's world nine ball championship in China. What's interesting is Han you lost her first match of the tournament to jasmine. Ooh, Sean the tournament starts out in groups of eight the top four players top two undefeated in the top two from the one loss side advanced to a final thirty two playoff bracket on you did lose her first match still made it with one loss out of her group. She got her revenge with a nine three win over jasmine in the second round of the single limitation phase from there. She went on and beat Kelly, Fisher hill hill should beat the Philippines ruble in comets nine six and then she beat weighing in the finals nine six again. So congratulations to Han. You she was our player of the year two years ago and certainly with a win at the world nine ball championship. And now her place at the top of the women's money list. She's certainly a favorite for player of the year this year, which we should have our player of the year announcement within the next three to four weeks. The other big event going on right now is the men's world nine ball championship, which is one day in right now that also is the same format where there's groups in you, you have to be one of the top four players to advance out of your group looking over results, which came in just as I was getting ready to record this. The biggest names that we find losing in the first round David out, Katie Roland Garcia, Johan Chula from the Philippines, you lung Chang from Taipei Mika imminent loss to Roussin Shena Hoffe. You can't really say that's an upset. Marlon Manalo lost a wing can Marlins been away from the game a little bit Torsten home in lost to Russia's Jason Farren nine six so he'll have to win out from here. And really, I don't know that there's any other real major upsets that I see from looking at the charts. Maksim Dudin it's lost his first round match. But again, these are group's oh one other upset that I see from looking over those stories that while lead Majed beat Kevin Chang. US open champion nine five. So chain will be on the one loss side on day two of the event. So that's the bulk of the news that we have right now. Let's go ahead and get to the interview with Schuyler Schuyler talked about Mel Mosconi Cup. And and what Johann did for his game this year where he feels his game is at right now, it was a quick interview. So here we go Schuyler Woodward.
