I recently watched her play on ESPN a few times, can't remember the tournaments. She beat Karen Corr, Vivian Villareal & Julie Kelly in the matches I watched.

I think she's damn talented & was blown away by her playing. Great shotmaker & position player, seemed to have a coolness & confidence about her.

I give her about 1 year to overtake Allison as the top player (not to knock Allison in any way-she's my favorite female pool player).

Yeah, I watched her play the other day and she is a beast. She looked near flawless.

GYK is a very exciting player!! I had the pleasure of her playing in one of my events at Comet Billiards and she was just fascinating to watch!! The only time she had to stop moving was to wait for the balls to stop moving.

I hate to bring this up to Jenn Barretta, but GYK won in 30 minutes in a 9-1 match.

Plus, GYK loves my car.

While watching GYK play in a C.A.T. tournament, in Virginia, fellow CCB member Mike M. timed her. GYK broke and ran a rack of 9-ball in 56 seconds.

I think she has the best "Jump Shot" on the WPBA tour.

I've always said that GYK is one of my fav players and soon to be the fav player for me. I love her aggressive style of play that to me mimicks the way the men play (which is why I prefer following the male tourneys). I can count on 1 hand as to how many females I like to watch play and GYK is definitely one of them.

Yeah, we did the same thing at Comet. She ran one rack in 45 seconds. It was the fastest rack Bill Haley ever saw.

I guess Mike M. chose to time one of the more difficult racks. It took GYK a whole 11 seconds longer to run it. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

While I've never seen her in person, I've watched her on TV and she is very exciting to watch. Her style reminds me of, dare I say it, Earl Strickland. She's quick and doesn't think to hard. Just does it. She'll be a powerful force in the near future.

GYK is simply an awesome player. Like NBG said, i love the face that she is aggressive and not afraid to take chances on the table.

I am hoping that i will get to see her play in person soon. She has really made a great name for herself in a very short period of time. And that speaks volumes to her talent.
