    Any 14.1 Players in Santiago, Chile?

    On my way there now, just curious if anyone lived there and wanted to play some 14.1 this week? If not, I'll be there this week, looking for a place to play near the Marriott on Kennedy Ave. in Santiago. Thanks

    Best day of my 14.1 career!

    Great shot of John and Ed, BOTH are great teachers and players. Tons of fun to hang around those guys. Good luck with your game, it is a fun one. I would recommend the How to Run a 100 videos from both Rempe and the one from Schmidt.

    100 balls reached.

    Congrats! Heck of an achievement! I'd be thrilled to hit 50, and be able to repeat that effort. Do you have any tips that helped you "Break Through" to higher runs for the rest of trying to extend our high run numbers? It seems as I learn more and more what balls to save on the table, and what...

    Scorekeeping for 14.1

    I have beads, counters and smartphone app. Personally, I HATE the counters on the table as they seem to never have a solid click between numbers, but seem to free spin. This means that whenever they get accidentally bumped, the score gets all screwed up. Second, I have to put glasses on to...

    4.0 continuous - You can run a 100+

    9BallJim, Did you hit the break ball with a full rack every time, or just lay out the next set of 15 balls spread around the table? If you spread them back out, I did that last week, and made it through 84 balls. It felt great.

    4.0 continuous - You can run a 100+

    Bob, the 6.1 is easy to picture as you described. Rack a 6 ball rack, leave a ball out. Seems that subsequent breaks would be VERY difficult since the rack is so small to hit. I was hoping for a pic of the 4.1 that was mentioned in the first post. I'll try the 6.1 in a few minutes. Sounds like...

    Great idea. I also like the 6.1 idea. Can you perhaps post a photo of your set-up?

    Carom break shots

    Opportunity came up in a match last night. I was down a couple of racks, and I had to see if I could gain on him. Ended up to steep for the cut on the BB, and called it, and played it soft off the rack. Boom - Dead center in the corner pocket, with a nice spread. 5-6 balls were out for...
