These days I struggle to get into a third rack! Strange how those patterns disappear when you don't play regularly.

I never played straight pool myself. Tried a little bit as a youngster but I didn't have any idea how to get into the second rack or more. I only saw somebody else playing straight pool a couple times and back then my interest was in doing not watching. No video and few books so without a mentor I didn't get far.

Pat was quite a player and is the reason for my post. Any idea what his high run was or what was the highest you saw him put up?

I seem to remember he used a slip stroke or am I confusing him with someone else? I practice a slip stroke now and then just because I consider it an art form and hate to see it disappearing. Sometimes me trying gets other people involved too.
