I recently read an article about a young kid breaking the youngest 100 Snooker break record, he was 9 at the time.

IMO I think 100 in 14.1 is of similar difficulty, does anyone know what age the youngest person to make 100 in 14.1 was?

:confused:

Seem to recall reading once that Jasmin Ouschan's younger brother, whose name I believe is Albin, had a 100+ run at age 11.

Allen Hopkins was either 11 or 12 (I forget which) when he posted his first 100+.

I was 13 when I had a run of 137 on a gold crown 2. Normal size pockets.

I heard Larry Nevel had a high run at an early age.

A player like that ought to come down to Elgin Illinois tomorrow and play in the 14.1 qualifier for the world championship that will be held in New Jersey next month. Top two finishers qualify.

Wow I never knew that, that truly is amazing given their age compared to the rest of the field, especially for Albin. I'm also aware that Albin is one hell of a straight pool player and could easily turn out to be one of the greats someday down the road.

My son is 10 and he ran a 21 last night. I know it isn't 100......yet. He is pretty consistently running 11 or 12 during practice. His high break on a 6 x 12 snooker table is 24 two blacks, one pink, a red, rattled the black after that red.

Not bad, considering at 10 years old I was playing with Tonka toys.

Damien Overton told me once that there are alot of kids in the UK that can do centuries, or close, between 7 and 11 years old, and that Austin Murphy would only be considered a mediocre player over there. For any age!
If that were true, I'd have to say there are a lot of world beaters in the making.....
I remember the Tonka truck days, and having four kids at the moment should remember them well, but my kids got their first cues on their second birthdays, if not sooner, and barely even touched toy trucks or anything else until we moved out here. With all of the hours a day they used to put in on the table, at their own choice, they are still nowhere near even putting together one rack.....
Makes me wonder how Landon and some of the other young shooters got so handy with a cue.

I understand your point. I guess there is something to be said for "natural ability" I guess. My son is nowhere near Landon or Austin. He does have the desire and drive though. Only time will tell.

They say Ralph Greenleaf was the best in the
state of Illinois when he was only 11 years old.
I'd think he must have run 100 by then. And it was tougher then considering the 10 foot tables with small pockets.

i met larry and he is a hell of a guy, wow I was glad to meet him, if we spent more time together we'd be good friends.

I believe the Miz did it when he was 18 as it was years ago when he was taking about it. Did the nine year old hit the century mark on a 6/12 snooker table? Best I ever had was 64. Hitting 100 at nine seems tough when his his heigth is taken into consideration.
