The Russian kid Stalev (???)is one heck of a player. I watched him and Efren play this past weekend and it was some of the most amazing pool I have EVER seen. Stalev can really make that cue ball move. Of course Efren has a pretty sneaky cue ball himself. There are a lot of up and coming young players, all very powerful. It will be interesting to see what the future of pool will be if we have young, humble, and respectful representation for the sport like Michele Rakin or that kid Stalev.

I watched him play Larry Lisciotti & Keith McCready a few months ago & the money seemed to be pretty much handled by his companions. Just wondering, with the long & strong reach of the Russian underworld, was Stalev in charge, or were his companions his 'managers'??
