Who is your pick for the Open this year to win it all. Johnny Archer seems to be hitting them pretty good right now.

Johnny Archer has been hitting them pretty good for about 15 years now.. he just got married.. and has been finishing high in all the major tournaments he's been playing in.

I look for him to be in the top 10.. for a long time..

New wife.. new sponser.... out to prove he's still a force.. I like his chances..

It will be between Reyes, Mika, Strickland or Bustamante. Cory and Archer are out of the picture.

Harold, I believe Efren and Busta are not playing. Off to the Asian Games.

Hmmm, maybe I'll have to factor-in Cory and Archer....

I think the Pearl might be in the top 10. He's just won in Cardiff and to win the Open all in the same year would be a hell of an accomplishment for him.

I hope people dont start beating me over the haed with their cues, but I have to say Earl is going to be a heavy favorite and he is my pick.

Efren Reyes or Francisco Bustamente

I also heard about some new guy that is playing this year, I'm not sure what his real name is but I don know that they call him "The Filipino Heat".

That might be Ronnie Alcano- He finished 8th in Hampton-losing to Parica either on the hill or by 2 games. He could be top 10 but i dont think he can win it. Im picking Mika if Efren and Bustamente arent there.

No, I know Ronnie Alcado, this guy, "The Filipino Heat" supposedly shoots as strong as Efren.

That is totally lame. I don't know what the Asian Games are but I can assure you that it is not nearly as important as the U.S. Open to me.

I'd like to see Mika Immomen win it. It would be the perfect redemption for last year's shut out. Not to sound mean or anything, but I remember my friends and I being happy to see him in the finals and then disappointed not to see him play. Much respect to Corey Deuel who played a flawless game. What can I say, he got the niche of the rack and ran away with the win.

--Well, that's my opinion. I might have a few more un-mentioned favorites.

I think "Me" is the operative word Kato...I would think that about 27 million Asians could give a care about you (or me for that matter) /ccboard/images/icons/smile.gif

Howdy folks,
We have 5 continents in the world.Each continent holds games every 4 years.More or less it includes all the events like in olympics.Main attraction is track and field.These sports are very prestigious.Winners,usually,put on pedestal in their respective countries.Commonwealth games are those conducted among the countries ruled by the Queen of England.Cheers
