First things first -- like video proof to vet the claims, first. Equipment constraints later. Although, I have to say, that would be a very bad idea. Who's to say what table specs are "acceptable" for runs to be considered "legit"?

We wouldn't want this to turn into the 14.1 equivalent of the dilemma we see being discussed about pros and 10-ball, and whether 4.5-inch pockets are "too easy."

For right now, video proof that at least the run itself is legit and not a fish story. This at least addresses a very real problem, and not a "perceived" one.

I guess you can figure out some kind of handicapping system for tables. I do not think a run of 80 on a tight table is equal to a run of 80 on table with buckets for pockets. I know when I am playing on a table with buckets in the corners my game automatically is bumped up a couple balls before i even start playing, if you know what I mean. I am not a 14-1 player and believe a run of 80 is pretty dam good on any table also.

The above bold is not correct and no alignment adjustment is needed after four diamonds. There is very little change after 2 or 2.5 diamonds and further that I can think of. There may be an exception to this that I do not know of?

I believe Stan has mentioned before, there are no "B" alignments after about 4 diamonds. The CTEL would be off the edge of the ball. A "B" alignment would move to an CTEL-A/C (thicker) shot alignment.

My notes from this year to myself.... - 02-08-2013, 12:19 PM

Here are my notes to myself from this year......

(may 30,2012 last post)
14.1 stats
jan 2 104
jan 8 122
jan 15 47
apr 6 112
may 28 85

playing very strong with 2 steps.... line up cue, stroke parallel

jan 23,2013
CTE used in local tournament, no nerves or demons. Placed 4th out of 64. Ran 120 this week.

oct 10, 2012
first CTE used in local tourn, played great but mis identified rail shots and missed a few. now corrected and will see how the next one goes. CTE seems to help with nerves during the game.

Aug 25,2012
My whole game is transformed into complete joy. Pocketing everything. Great confidence boost.

Aug 23,2012
No stance is correct stance. Line up the cue and adapt to it. Playing strong with 2 steps, line up cue, stroke parallel. Ran 112 saturday morning, thinking about lining up the cue, not the stance.

July 25 southern classic tunica --DISCOVERED CTE --- EVERYTHING HAS CHANGED !
Total transformation. Playing great, no stance thoughts, just pocketing everything. Stevie Moore was right, and obviously Landon is doing something right.

===================
As you can see, i keep notes about my game and progress, so please come to Texas, and call me a liar in person.... PLease DO !!!!






(so **** you all, get up there and play on that 10 footer yourself, then post your f'n comments and YOUR video !!!!. The 10 footer destroys your confidence, and you can't get comfortable because you cant reach anything, as j archer said, 'screw this thing !')

I will be playing in the us open one pocket, and the tunica event, so please come by and call me a liar in person. I am old, but looking forward to seeing you !!!!!

Y

ok, i did not know that. So after a 4 diamonds distance a B turns into an edge to A or C or are you saying it becomes ccb to A or C?

True for a 9 footer. About 50 inches.

At the point that it becomes impossible to see a CBE to B and a CTEL,
Your visuals could be A or C thick with CTE or depending on the cut, a single line visual of A or C as thin cut would be appropriate.

Of course, the 1/8 overlap could come into play on an extremely thin shot.

YES, And this can be a good lesson concerning the importance of proper bridge distance.

Let's say the CB is 1/2 ball off of an end rail. The OB is 6 diamonds or so down table as a very slight cut to the the right corner pocket.

Typically this shot calls for an outside pivot direction or left because it represents a very thick cut in the system.

TWO SITUATIONS:
1. I want to pound the ball, cutting it into the corner, and bring the CUEBALL back up table for my next shot.

2. I want to lag the shot very softly so the CUEBALL tags along to the end rail.

For #1. Use an extended bridge off of the end rail in order to achieve a normal bridge distance. This allows for proper acceleration and the pivot is typical and from the outside. LEFT

For #2. Now for the lag. The longer extended rail bridge is not needed. Use a full hand bridge on the rail channeling your cue between your thumb and index finger. This will make for a very short bridge distance. This will encourage supreme accuracy and a very short backswing. THE PIVOT DIRECTION IS NOW FROM THE INSIDE. RIGHT

WHY? An exaggerated shorter bridge distance occurred. Something had to change.

The lesson:
In manual pivoting,bridge distances are strict. In Pro One bridge distances are more flexible but when exaggerations occur, an adjustment is needed and that adjustment may come in the form of an opposite pivot direction.

The learning never stops...

Bump, as I think this may have gotten lost in the shuffle.

It's one thing to get up there and "take a swing at shots" on the 10-footer. It's quite another to select the correct shot for patterns conducive to pocketing success, and for setting up the rest of the pattern where it's an easy-enough out. To look at this from an "aiming system zealot" point of view, where "any shot on the table is a done deal, all you have to do is execute the system correctly and the ball will go" is extremely short-sighted.

Let me word the question a little differently. Watch the videos in their ENTIRETY. Please put your 14.1 hat on when doing so. Watch the patterns, shot selection, cue ball control (or lack of), excessive bumping of balls, etc. And keep this question in mind: "Do you think the player in question is normally a 100-ball runner?" (Please keep the 10-foot platform out of the question -- this is not a question of the shot difficulty caused by the increased distance. This is a question of CORRECT PATTERNS that would be conducive to 100-ball runs, as this player claims. This is a question of RECOGNITION of a 100-ball runner when you see him/her.)

That's what Ingo is saying. And I tend to agree with him. The player in this video, IMHO, is not a 100-ball runner.

-Sean

All your patterns go out the window, because you can't reach anything !!!

Get on there yourself dumshit and show me your skills !!!

NO,,, i don't see you at the table, do i ?

Now this 50 inch (4 diamond) adjustment is only for B alignment shots correct? it does not come into effect on a A or C alignment shot at that distance.
