Keith's matches were the most popular (IMO) of all. Even when Efren and Busty were playing on the BCn TV table and having a GREAT match, Keith was attacking Alex P. on a nearby table.

Keith was talking so loud and shooting some of the toughest OUT shots and jumping up after each shot, that Efren and Busty were watching. Even the BCn camera took a break and focused on the Alex and Keith show.

Keith was on the hill (10-8) game 9 ball and spouted "You can put this on the Internet" and BANG.. he JAWED the 9.... Alex came back to make it interesting, on his last rack to make it 10-10, Alex broke, made a ball and had a good chance at an OUT, but missed a back cut on the one ball in the side pocket to give Keith a chance for his 2nd INTERNET win.. and Keith ran out with some great shots and even better shapes.

During the Parica/McCready match (semis for winners bracket) Keith looked like he was the NEW kid on the block, still he missed a few 9 ball shots, but made shots from all over the table and got great shape when needed, sometimes going 3 rails.

Jeremy Jones had Keith's number and Keith looked like he knew it. JJ wins the winners final 11-3

Parica took Keith through the ringer in the finals of the One Loss side, 11-4

Other matches and observations

Kid Delicious beat Earl to hand Earl his earliest exit from the tournament ever. The Kid was hooping and hollering loud enough for everyone to hear in the Convention Center. But, seeing the Kid jump was scary.

Fabio P. and Rodney Morris showed why its good to have your game at its peak when you play at the open. Both could have finished higher (5th-6th) had they caught an extra break with JJ and Jose. These were also great matches.

Was Keith breaking and running out? In the Derby City Classic 2003 I think he ran 5 racks against Jimmy Wetch and he thanked the Sardo for making his break more effective.

Keith did have some difficult Break and Runs. But, his safety play and kicks were working better than I have ever seen him execute.

IMO Keith was much more aggressive at the table than most players. Keith was willing to take the risk, and by doing so, reaped the rewards.

Did he drop his cheeseburger when he jumped around? /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

You are right Tom, the reward risk takers, shot gamblers get is losing, which is what he got. Playing the percentages get's you in the winners circle, not show boating. Nobody a month from now will remember who came in 3rd, tell me who came in 3rd in last years 9 ball world championship, or in Wimbleton, the indy 500 or the golf us open. Who came in 3rd in the baseball world series? Fans only remember winners Tom, they very quickly forget the losers. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif
