I still haven't broke 50 but I look forward to the day I finally do. I only play 14.1 in short spurts because I get so frustrated with it. I went through the same thing learning to play one pocket and it took me moving to an area where 1p was played a lot and getting in there and mixing it up with good 1p players for me to finally push past the frustration and learn to play it. Sadly, I've never lived anywhere that 14.1 was even remotely popular and trying to play by myself just ends up pissing me off.

I do need to actually learn this game though. I consider 3 cushion, one pocket, and 14.1 to be the gold standard in terms of being a solid, well rounded pool player. IMO, anyone proficient in all three of those disciplines is a threat ruin anyone's day.

Last week i finally got back practicing 14.1. It was so hard after for while. Today I had time to shoot some 14.1. I think I made 105 today. I check it from video later. ☺

Yea. 08/31/2017 run of 105.

It seems I (always)have to make some fireworks before I start focus... Why I can´t just play simple and solid like others..

I just had a 24 ball run, which is my highest so far (prev: 17, over two breaks). Had a pocket rattler bounce out, but had a break ball set up and was working on getting to the last few of the second rack. I will confess that at one point, I thought, "To hell with the next break. Take the easy shots and get to 30."

(I started with a back cut side break.)

Between "Play Your Best Straight Pool" and "Break Shot Patterns", I'm really beginning to see the routes.

WOOHOO!

I just topped 24, with a new lifetime high run of 28! I had to make a choice about routes, and would like to be able to run the last five shots again differently, but I had a makeable 5 footer or so on my KB, but undercut it. I was close to a rail and had to use inside English to come back up for my BB. Just couldn't quite do it.

Learned a very valuable lesson as I practiced tonight. I had been hitting back-cut break shots to begin my "inning" and thought that speed should be pretty high (9+ on a 10 scale).

I kept missing the damned BB. First undercut, then over. Then I'd make it but scratch. Then run the CB up table. Finally backed off the speed to about a 6. Made every BB, kept the CB on the rack half of the table, and nearly always had a shot, and then secondary break shots. I've learned that I prefer to pick apart a rack like that, rather than having the one shot scatter that I can't control as well.

So anyway...28! Thirty, here I come!

High run - 10-07-2017, 11:58 PM

I have a tight 8' table 3 3/4" corner pockets at home. I have runs daily in the 20's on that with a high run of 52 a couple years ago. I played in a straight pool league this summer for a couple months. They have a 9' global there that I played on, never really felt comfortable with the extra length of the shots. My high run during league play was 28 this August. So put me down for a 28 please. Thanks


I must continue my journey

Tried upping the ante last night 10/15/17 but just fell short of my run on this thread. Missed a tough Breakshot at 84 with a lot of distractions going on side tables next to me by non pool playing people’s.

Today I am starting my practice for 14.1 nationals which will take place next Sunday, hopefully I will run some decent numbers to put in this thread in the process I havent participated much here at AZ 14.1 challenge for the last year or two but I will again My last triple digit run occured back in 2013 when I practiced 14-1 regularly so I guess it is time to push my limits a little bit once again
