All credit to ABN Billiards for putting this on, and offering free live streaming from both the Kremlin Cup, and this event which I saw someone wittily refer to as the "Moscowni" Cup - and I'm wondering if the real Mosconi Cup Team Europe should take notice that Johan Ruysink is obviously doing some serious warming up of Team USA (albeit with Corey Deuel subbed in for Skylar Woodward) and if the European fans should be worried about meeting a more prepared opponent in Las Vegas this year?

The action starts later today after the Kremlin Cup Final - and you can watch it LIVE here on Pro9's Chat Page... www.pro9.co.uk/html/chat.php
