Billiards US Open 9-Ball Championship – Schmidt vs. Nevel

by Greg on October 9, 2011

The “Honeymooner” (at least that’s what they called him in 2004) John Schmidt of Florida faces off with the powerful Larry Nevel. Both players break the balls with great power. But pool is a finesse game and pocketing balls with surgical efficiency is the key to winning. This is the second of 13 feature matches from the 29th Annual U S Open 9-Ball Championship, the pool and billiard world’s most prestigious title. Every September pool payers from around the world converge on Chesapeake, Virginia to compete for their share of the $200,000 prize fund.

This is a production of Billiard Club Network, in association with Accu-Stats Video Productions.

@doilyfilm but the commentator who comments on every single shot no matter how easy or difficult and gets half of them wrong is straight.

I’ve been reading some of the posts that belittle the use of a glove. Ever shoot pool when the humidity is high? The use of a glove makes a big difference. Has nothing to do with sexuality.

@mkjhagfv i can’t stand snooker snobs. can’t we cuesportsmen & women just realize that there are differences in all variations of cue sports? i don’t like snooker that much,& it has nothing to do with smaller pockets on bigger tables, it’s the point system(balls with value), the re-spotting, the hoidy-toidy dress code, it’s boring on tv, but it’s mostly due to the amount of players & fans that on other cuesports. o’sullivan & davis’ 9ball record is deplorable. do you compare rugby to NFL??

Cue power would mean that the player is able to spin the ball enormously because their technique is so advanced, that they can attack the ball with so much strength that they can move the cue ball around using spin

What exactly makes someone have lots of cue power? I know that Neil Robertson, the pro snooker player from Melbourne, has this term applied to him as well.

In 9 Ball I’d agree with you. In 8-Ball or 10-Ball the break speed is far more important. Reyes can’t break nearly as good as Nevel can. If he could, he’d never lose an 8-Ball Tournament.

Wow that first break from Nevel was amazing lol
