Hi Abbott. Not usually my place to comment on this type thread. I certainly have not been able to keep up with the happenings at Q School. I am proud that we have had at least a couple Americans trying to make a go of it lately, though the odds are admittedly slim. As for a reply to your comment, I think you may be forgetting the most important part of this....it is q SCHOOL
. These are players spending thousands of dollars (or their local currency equivalent), usually out of their own pocket, to travel sometimes halfway around the globe to have a legitimate shot at a spot on the Professional Tour. That takes some learning. With each win and loss of a match, a player has added to his education on a long road to hopefully one day reach his or her goal. Bumps and bruises of 4-0 losses are a part of that. Would you have a one frame Pot Black knockout and tell these people to just turn around and go home?
