Hawaiian 7 0 : Schmidt vs Immonen Showdown

New Brunswick, New Jersey- Rodney Morris the greatest Hawaiian 14.1 player ever in history?? Pool historians may need to start researching about that since Morris is making a statement at The World Tournament of 14.1. Morris is one of only 4 players to go undefeated in 7 straight matches in the round robin and win their groups. The event's first stage is now concluded and goes into the single elimination race to 200 with half the field eliminated.
Morris had notable wins over New York 14.1 local legend Danny Barouty and played a near flawless match on the TV table against Brandon Shuff. He defeated Shuff 100-19 in 2 innings.
"I'm starting to like this game", started Morris. " I just kept telling myself throughout my matches that if Charlie Williams could do it, it must be easy! (laughs)
Two players tomorrow who didn't have a perfect record are USA hopeful John Schmidt and Finland's Mika Immonen. Just days ago Immonen picked Schmidt as America's best chance to win the World Tournament. Now only one of these two 14.1 giants will make it past the match. It's a mega marquee match that will be streamed on www.insidepoolmag.com at 10:00am EST.
Other notable matches include defending 14.1 champion Oliver Ortmann versus Japan national champion Kunihiko Takahashi and the 12:00pm live stream match between Ray Martin vs Max Eberle.
