And Wendy we missed you girl! JMD says Hi and wants to see you soon. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Schmidt played in a manner that can only be described as spectacular! He was clearly the best player there this week. I was also very impressed with Robb Saez' game, too.

It was a great Open and the CCB event, although smaller than in past years, was fun. See my write up after I've had time to get some sleep and my liver gets back to normal in a day or so.

What a finals! Schmidt did a great job on Earl. More on that later. The CCB tourney was fun as always as was dinner Friday night.

The Billiards Digest main page mentions a heated exchange between Strickland and Schmidt. Does anyone know what was said between them?

Earl was relatively quiet for the matches I saw. He played on the TV table with CJ. CJ was beating him and Earl just sat the whole time with his face hidden and never looked at the table or anything. His thought was, "Accu-Stat is making money off this dvd and he's not getting anything out of it so why let them see his face.
Then he had to play Schmidt. He was accusing John of waxing the cue ball. After every game that John won, he wiped off the cue ball with his towel. Earl was on a rampage about it and finally John told him to sit down and shut up. This pissed off Earl even more. Once Earl lost, he was in the hallway complaining to whomever would listen, about John waxing the ball. Earl played with the ball as well as John. Earl went as far as trying to get John disqualified. It's a shame that someone with Earl's talent must resort to stuff like this to justify his losses.

DG - nothing about Earl surprises me

LMAO. Waxing the ball?.....................Why? /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif

Typical Earl. You gotta admit, he is one of a kind.

Qtec...LOL

John supposedly had silicone or wax on his towel. And when he wiped off the cueball every time he broke, wax would get on the ball. This would help the ball to draw better. Although if John didn't run the table, Earl would play with the same ball. Earl complained that the CB would react funny after hitting a rail or stop dead. Sometimes John would wipe the CB even though he lost the game. He did this with Luat in the finals. Broxman also complained about Schmidt waxing the ball. Who knows....

DG - glad I'm not a pro and have to deal with this

didn't these guys ever here of..."wax on, wax off"? Ask the ref to clean the ball, before it's your turn to shoot.
I once read that Earl wiped the cueballs off between games,
good idea to get rid of any chalk residue, I thought

The refs were wiping the CB during the finals. But you know how Earl is.... I think he was trying to shark John.

DG - only my opinion

What a treat to watch John play and win. Don't know where he came from, but hope to see him around for a long time.

I've watched John Schmidt play many times. He doesn't need to stoop to a level of play that requires him to shark or modify equipment for his advantage.

John is a class act, and plays like a champion, always.

Just when you thought Earl couldn't get any worse with his antics...

Strickland is one of those players that while you watch them play you feel inspired to bring your own performance level up. That's why I love to watch him play. It disappoints me to no end that he has to bring those tantrums with him to the table.

I LUV IT!! Of course John knowing that Earl is on a tangent about the cue ball would make sure he doubled is efforts to keep it clean. /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif Then ordering him to sit down and shut up when it clearly drove him nuts? LMFAO brilliant. St.

Phil So Fla and I spoke about John winning the tournament a few days before the finals. We were right on track. I also told my buddies whom were at the Open. Then everyone was asking me if I made any money on bets.

I'm not the betting type, so I won no money but I was sure happy for John and his sponsor! (although he knock out Robb Saez out of the tournament). John was playing brilliantly!
