30 years ago............156 on an over sized 8

2017........86 on a diamond pro-am

Health issues have kept me from staying at the table for long periods of time so, I've been forced to play mostly quick games/short sets of whatever........

currently...........downhill slide.

I knew a fellow that thought he was a good boxer because he was in a position to befriend a lot of "professional boxers". It cost him azzwhippens till he realized he wasn't what he thought/wished he was.

Do you know anyone like the "wannabe" boxer in the pool world?

I don't play 14.1 regularly; maybe a few times a year. My high run is 23 on 4" pockets.

Goes without being said but, I'm gonna say it anyways: Danny is a rare talent at "anything" pool/billiards.

I have much respect for his game. A beast on the table.......no doubt.

Very much so. I would like to know as well. wow. Most of us that have either broke 100 or so have only done it once with a few 40's to 60's here and there. But, to break big numbers multiple times is at the very least pro level.

Also, the 12 BnR's of bar box 8 ball is without a doubt top tier status.

A lot of honest answers here. Not so many have run over 100 balls, including me. When I played (and gambled) a lot at pool in my 20's and 30's, Straight Pool was just not an action game. Still I liked to practice 14.1 to work on my cue ball. I could regularly make runs in the 40's and occasionally 50's with a high run of 63. I did have one run of 72 in a money game for $50 with the college champion from U. of Florida when I was in my 20's. In the terminology of the day I was a 40 or 50 ball runner. A shortstop in other words.

The last time I tried to practice Straights, maybe five years ago, I couldn't get to 30 balls.

Something about the way he stated it, I think we are missing information of a "spin" nature. Ive driven a golf ball over a 1,000 yards.

My best was 30 balls on the nose on a 9ft Brunswick. Ran lots of 20's, play safe, another 20 but I have never been able to string together a big run. The game is so hard to play well.

Very much so, pool is an extremely small community.

As for people we know being hard on us if we was dishonest or should I say (most people) miss remember.... lol......heck, I by accident typed 165 as my lifetime high run a while back and within an hour I was called by a friend on here and he asked if I knew I had typed 165 instead of 156 because he knows what my numbers are.

To serious 14.1 players, it is obvious that something "may" be amiss when another "serious" 14.1 player says he/she cant remember their high run. Sure, there are some that have played so much for so many years they may be a tad off but "most" serious 14.1 players will never forget the number, the table, what cue they used, the room, if there was a bet and even who watched (in general).

Some things just stay with you and most serious 14.1 players respect the game and other straight players to much to be dishonest about something that "seems" so trivial but, in reality is very important if you are indeed a serious 14.1 player.

Like most, I try to the best of my knowledge to always tell the truth even if it is not in my favor to do so.

I'm sure most, if not all are the same way.

It’s hard to beat the feeling of leaving a successful break ball, pocketing it, having the cue ball smash into the rack and continuing your run.
Watching bits and pieces of the Tournament has renewed my interest and I’m going to start practicing and learning the game immediately. I’ve set a goal of a 50 ball run by January 1, 2020 on my GC with 4.5” pockets.

Hell yeah Blues. I wish you no bad rolls. I’ve got the 50 goal as well

First time I ever practiced 14.1 about 7 years ago I ran a 52. I have played it probably 30 time since then and havenít topped 30.
