9-ball Pool: Mosconi Cup Preview

Over the last couple of years Europe have not had the best of times in this annual USA v Europe battle of the baize. On paper this year Europe look to have the strongest team for a while and with a non-playing captain taking the pressure off, plus the fact that the partizan Dutch crowd will be cheering them on it looks good for the team in Blue.

On the other hand the USA have not really impressed this year in terms of individual performances, apart from the runner-up spot that Rodney Morris achieved in the IPT World 8-ball Championships.

Team Europe:
  • Mika Immonen
  • Ralf Souquet
  • Thomas Engert
  • Nick van den Berg
  • Imran Majid
  • David Alcaide

Team USA:

  • Johnny Archer
  • Earl Strickland
  • Rodney Morris
  • John Schmidt
  • Mike Davis
  • Corey Deuel

My money is on Europe this year! First session is this evening with the first match involving all 12 players.
