europe take the lead for the first time in the match,
Chamat/immomen bt Williams/ Jones 5-3

Europe 7 USA 6 first to 11

last singles of the night wild card singles

captains choose
Jones (USA) Souquet Europe

clever move by captain Varner . Jones is still warm despite doubles defeat. Souquet struggled earlier but his compatriot German , captain Oliver Ortmann obviously believes in his ability and tournament experience.

Choking everywhere but souquet takes it with an incredible escape from a snoooker. Europe clean up with all 5 matches tonight to come from 6-3 down to go into tommorow 8- 6 in front.Ring your tv stations and dont miss it . if you do ill be here from about 3pm your time ,
" Pool ! Bloody marvellous!"

I saw it and loved it. Wonder if Earl will still be using his super-specs! HaHa.

Boy does he hate to lose to Steve. Notice when they shookhands Earl wouldnt look at him.

Go Europe.Yeah.

Earl, Steve Davis, all of these guys are great assets to the sport. The competitive spirit is what I enjoy the most, and the Strickland-Davis matchups are fun to watch. Each player takes their game very seriously.

Would love to hear more about Rodney Morris. Sounds like he's in great form these days. The sound of his break when the cue-ball hits the balls is deafening.

The Mosconi Cup is the closest thing the U.S. will ever have to an Olympics. Keep these updates coming for those inquiring minds that got to know. This is GREAT stuff! /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Here's the last update that I got from
Click that link and go to forumns for updates.
USA leads 10-9 And Jones leads Chamat in the current match 4-3
Chamat breaks, nothing goes down, Jones pushes.I'll keep you posted as I get the next update.

12-21-2003, 08:23 PM
Jones wins 5-3 and the USA wins the Mosconi Cup 11-9. I was hoping for a USA win however I was really looking forward to a Strickland Hohman final deadlocked at 10-10. Sounds like it was a great tourney....can't wait to see the re-run on TV
