Report BornToWin February 13, 2018 10:20 PM GMT
The consensus was that the pockets were unforgiving, many frames having miss after miss.

I am as annoyed as anyone at the buckets used on tour, but the shootout provides the tightest event of the season.

I think the set up would be good for ranking events, I am sure many on here who watched would agree?
Report wondersobright February 14, 2018 9:20 AM GMT
from what I saw BTW (and I didn't see all of the event by any means) I think the general muggish standard was responsible for a lot of balls being missed rather than unforgiving tables

I don't recall any event in the last 3 years where I felt the pockets were sufficiently tight to appropriately reward high skill and to punish muggery

there may have been but I don't recall any

there are players who are on tour now towards the lower end of the rankings who couldn't make a 50 break on the old set up imo
Report The Bhoys February 14, 2018 4:35 PM GMT
I thought it was much more entertaining with more mises, maybe that was the plan for the shootout but it will revert to the way it was with the bigger pocket for the other events, barry aint guna make it tighter
