Congrats & Grattis & Tebrikler... but
I have watched the final game and one of the semifinal matches. All players deserve a big applause and I really appreciated their patience and good performans despite such a bad place to play in; very bad condition considering with too much noise from the environment surrounding the match table. Billiard is like chess, it requires a high concentration. The choice of venue for the games is a big fiasco.

The choice of venue for the games is a big fiasco.

why do you say that ?

Noise many times broke concentration of the players
Yes this is true even watching from video the noise disturbs you. The owners of the cafe easily
could do isolation on the walls !!

Total focus..
When you are top dogs, top professionals, top focus, the only thing you should see or hear is the table and three balls. Really, when you top notch focus, you will NOT see or hear noises at the table. That is what separates the best from the rest, adapt and conquer.

Here is just an example if a prove needed... btw, I have been watching 3C matches for more than 30 years, in place as well as on tv.

Kindly my opinions
Yes you are right, we would wish it to be the best conditions possible. However, the reality will not be like that because different locations, fans, and environments made it inevitable. I heard the best saying to me, you just have to "adapt, focus, and conquer" in which ever situations you might be in. This is happening for everyone not just one individual player. Just fyi, Merckx unbelievably played 4.0 average and won the final regardless of the noises or distractions. Congrats and peace out!
