I wasn't happy with my 70s and I really thought I could do better. I buckled down tonight and my run started off well. [Note1: I had a little mental lapse and ran Level 5 twice (both successfully)]. My first big mistake was on Level 10 [6 ball] where I left 4 balls on the table.
And then I flubbed level 12 (8-ball) due to a bad break with clusters. -4 there as well. But, 92 after level 12!

After that, I missed one ball along the way, but I was in gear and basically ran out. My only question is whether making the 9-ball on the break counts as a win on level 14 [under 9-ball rules it does]. I continued the run anyway but left 2 balls. So, I either scored a 91 or a 89.

Note2: Like you, I had to jump a ball to save a run. Mine was on level 16 hopping the 14 with jump-draw to make the 8 for shape on the run out.

I don't think I'm going to try again as this was pretty taxing!

Final note: My main camera has a 30 minute limit. There's a short gap for that view when I start/stop every 30 minutes or so. But, I run 2 cameras and my Gopro has a continuous view for the whole challenge.
