  • 2016 Irish & European Billiards in Carlow Ireland

    Any comments on the great Mike Russell in Carlow on Saturday & Sunday at the 2016 Irish & European Open, inexplicable his performance?
    Are we seeing the sad end of a great billiard player?

    any link to the events?
    I recall reading in Snooker Scene (last year? year before?) about his behaviour at an international competition, being abusive/rude to some young Chinese(?) players?
    Up the TSF!

      Details please.
      Read that Gilchrist beat Causier at the bell by a single point. Must have been a thriller to watch for the spectators.

          Details - cant find the articles just at the moment but supposedly Mike Russell was intoxicated and racially abuse some very young Chinese players at an international billiards event.
          sorry the link has nothing about Russell's "performance" that I can see?
          Up the TSF!

              Not sure it's the "end" just yet with breaks like that! His shot average in the final was a mere 125!

                  Yes, it was (according to the entry pack)
                  Mike plays the crossing with such ease and perfect positioning over 4-5 cushions, it's ridiculous

                    All the more commendable performance by Mike.
                    Yes he seems to play the baulk line cross better than any other professional at the moment.
