I have no clue as why they played to 120, I think they just tried to work
out how many games they can get through in time. The choice for the
players, regarding Reyes it's quite obvious, with an event in Asia, where
the American players are far less popular then Efren, you will want him in
the match (no comments on his playing qualities necessary ;-). Earl was
already in Hong Kong for the team 9-Ball event held previously, where he
played in the American team with C.J. Wiley, Dallas West and M. Wilson. So
I believe the contact was established and organization easier that way. Now
it also looks like our sponsor and Earl are trying to develop pool in Asia
in a more professional way, so I am not surprised that Earl will be around
from time to time... Agree, I would like to see J.Archer play here too. A
shoot out between all three of them would be to my liking. Just one
condition: I don't want to rack up the balls any more (I did for one half
evening Reyes vs Strickland). While Reyes didn't care too much, Earl was
giving me a hard time to rack them up properly. No, I am not complaining -
he was absolutely right about this. If you see how consistent his break is,
you know he wants a professional rack everytime. It is just hard to do if
you are used to rack just for 'social' games, without professional demands.
