NOTE - in game 18, Feijen had BIH but it seemed to forget it was BIH and
ended up taking a very odd angle shot at the object ball.  I'd be interested
if someone could interview Nels about this.  If he would have made this
runout, there's a great chance he would have taken Earl down.  It looked to
me like he had a mental blank and forgot he had BIH.

I was the one doing the game-by-game reports for the site. Neils had
BIH on the one but had a tough position to get shape on the 2. I think
he was more worried about the shape on the 2 than making the 1 and he
jarred it. It was also very late and he was probably feeling the heat
of playing Earl in such a close match. Earl has his way of applying
heat without ever picking up a cue.

Good point on the 2, but I'd still like to hear Neils comment on the shot.
Clearly this was a turning point.  And watching Neils reaction after the
shot showed a very disheartened man.
