Coming up soon in October, Amsterdam Billiards in New York City will be hosting an epic three day battle. On October 12 – 14, Mika Immonen and Shane Van Boening will be playing a ten ball match in a race to 100. Each competitor put up $10,000 in a winner take all contest. This is the most talked about matchup over the last 12 months. Who will prevail? The Iceman or SVB? Live streaming will be provided by The Action Report on a pay per view basis.
This is one match I would love to see in person. I wonder how much plane tickets are from San Francisco to NYC? Maybe I could sleep on the floor at ABC to help defray the travel costs? I doubt I’ll make the trip, but who knows? According to some of the comments I’ve seen on the AZBilliard forums, SVB is the favorite. I don’t know about that; I’ve seen The Iceman play 14.1, and he’s pretty formidable. Who do you think will win? Call me a nit if you will: Anyone willing to give me The Iceman and 10 games on the wire?
