You might be right in that both players assumed it was miss. Yan pointed out it wasn't a miss.

Then he had to point it out again to Selby.

Then he had to point it out a third time to Selby.

He certainly showed he can put the pressure on referee's as well as opponets.

It's just the Selby hate blinding the Ronnie lovers.

How can this call be right or wrong tbh. Selby thinks it hit, Jan thought it didn't. You could watch it 20 times and still not make your mind up. I think it hits because it looks to rock, but that could easily be the lighting



As for the green, i'm sure it's not a miss, but caught up in the action after a foul, then i probably would have looked for it to replaced too.

There's a famous shot from Ronnie v Higgins years ago where Ronnie makes a technical foul while going for a colour, and no miss is called so the choice is for Ronnie or Higgins to play a red. The miss rule changed after this, but it was a tough call for Jan



Although, the shot here at 1:02 from Trump where he miscues and hits the blue is called a miss by Jan. Is it a miss? Is it just a foul? If you had 2 misses at a clear red, and you miscued on the 3rd attempt, should it be called a miss and you lose the frame?
The miss rule is an abomination tbh.

Higgins shot on the Green wasn't call a miss because he actually hit the object ball

If you don't hit an object ball it will be called a miss whether it is a miscue or not.

The Ronnie/Higgins incident was an anomaly in the rules at the time from what I can see.

Quite like the look of the 2/1 USA in this weeks Mosconi Cup, not withstanding that Europe have won the last 5 editions by 11-3 or suchlike.
https://www.oddschecker.com/pool/mosconi-cup/winner

For whatever reasons Europe have made 4 changes to last years team and line up as Jason Shaw, Ralf Souquet, Nick Van Der Berg, David Alcaide and Joshua Filler (debutant). Looks a lot weaker than last year when there was Nils Feijen and Albin Ouschan. Alcaide and NVdB are ropey, Souquet veers from solid to shakey, Shaw is a brilliant nutcase, know nothing about Filler.

USA (now 'managed' by the Dutch lad who was Europe captain for 10 years) are Shane Van Boening, Skyler Woodward, Dennis Hatch, Oscar Dominguez and Billy Thorpe (debutant). For balance has to said Hatch and Dominguez have been consistently terrible in this event, SvB too but surely he's too good not to get it right eventually.

I think Europe will win, but with home venue, the strange captain thing and the weaker Europe team its probably more of a 4/6 6/4 match up imo.

Speaking of backable outsiders I've put a bit on Dott here at 4's hoping Judd shows his usual big tournament jitters that's plagued him last few years.

They changed up the qualifying system a bit, Darren Appleton is promoting his own ‘World pool series’ in New York so the likes of him, Melling,Boyes haven’t played enough qualifying events
