High run this year so far - 06-01-2017, 04:12 PM

Please put me down for 63 during a short practice. Finally finding some time to get in a practice once in awhile. Thanks.

I just ran 55 today. I missed breaking out the last cluster by the slimmest margin and had to shoot a combo on my last two balls and missed. My previous high run was 44. I do have the 55 on video, but I probably won't post the vid. I like to remain anonymous on public forums.

The funny thing was, after I finally missed, I really didn't know how many racks that I was on. I thought that I was only on the 3rd rack until I watched the video. That's probably why I didn't miss earlier. LOL

Table: 9-foot Brunswick with Shimmed 4.5 inch pockets.

Congratulations on beating your record!

On a side note, I use a coin to get counting off my mind, and in tournament play, keep saying to myself I need to get on another break shot (= one after the other, always the same attitude) until I get to the last one, at which point I'll check how many balls I can leave on the table.

Greetings from Switzerland, David.

Nice Run!

I don´t really have time to practice right now due work changes.. but I have one night when I hit some 14.1 and run two 70 ball runs back to back..

Also I´ve been fixing our poolhall tables. One more table to do when I have some free time from work. After I got them all done I gonna try get one week 14.1 practice on new cloths.
Dunno when I gotta have that time because I also want to start filming my(own style) instructional series about improving at pool.

P.s My game also little bit slump because all research I have been doing to for teaching pool + other strange stuff I tried.

Very good goals that you have. Thank you for the comment. I will look forward to your videos when they come out. As for me.... Once in a "Blue Moon"... my Hand/Eye coordination comes together and I get a great run. I do not play enough to make it happen often. I am very pleased that I do get good numbers once in a while. As a kid I could never imagine that I could hit those numbers.

153 in practice this afternoon. Missed a very makable (though not easy as should be) key ball when (again…) the mobile phone rang. Now going to make it a rule to turn it off once I'm into three digits. Having said that, there were a couple of shots earlier that I thought I'd missed but didn't. Getting old and nervous, back pain, feeling weak, sweaty palms, blurry eyes, confused - seriously, can't recommend it to anyone…

Greetings from Switzerland, David.

Thanks for the encouragement! It's weird sometimes, feeling like quitting altogether, that my eyes and game are completely gone, and then, just when I'm tired and ready to wrap things up for the day, the last break shot I set up I'm running three digits again.

Greetings from Switzerland, David.

I had a 73 ball run today. Hopefully I'm out of the rut I have been in!

Ran 42 today.

https://youtu.be/LcNvvLmsMe0

Played for about an hour and a half and I don't think I had a run over 20 before this happened. At the end of the run I used my break ball to play a combination and didn't even realize I shot it, lol. This game is so stinking frustrating.
