Kind of pisses me off. When I first started playing 14.1 about 2 years ago I had a mid-fifties on tape, but lost it because I figured that'd be a routine-ish run. Last week I ran a 47 on tape, my best since then. I won't be losing that one til I top it.

But, but, but .... If he left during that one too, you have no witnesses.

I had a similar experience. The first time I ran a 50 (59 as I recall), when I was at about 30 my opponent said he had no interest in watching any more and went to another table. Those tables were in a day room, so they were free.

My PB is 165 which I ran in practice about year and half back. My plan for this year is to re-dedicate myself to 14-1 practice which I rarely did in last couple of years, my main goal for this year is to make 200+ run

I can only claim breaking into a second rack a few times, but I think I get frustrated by it at a pretty high level


peace & love

I ran 98 once. Other than that, my high run is 64. When I'm playing a lot, I'll hang around the 20's/30's.

Tiger Woods broke 50 (48) for nine holes at age 3!! Legit course too. Might be the most unbelievable age/sport thing there is.

38 and I played the tougher shot on my run to get a 3rd rack runout.....Stupid idea.
I should have played the easier shot. Instead, I overanalyzed the table layout and
tried to make something happen sooner than I needed to.....my ego did me in on
that run. Funny thing is I actually let the run get in my head and started thinking to
myself i’m not going to miss today. That’s when I chose the harder shot on the table
to get my 3rd rack out of the way and I screwed up. There were two easier balls I
should have played. I let my ego write a check that my pool skills couldn’t cover.....Duh.

156 >>>>>> it was gold crown table. It was over two decades ago. It was cheap match.

Since I've started back>>>>>>>>>> 85 or 86 on a 9' pro-am. it was NOT match play. I took BIH to start.


Don't let your bark be bigger than your stroke.

If I had plenty of money, I would probably lose more often.

59 on a dirty and somewhat tough 9 foot table. I've had many 50+ but I don't play as much as I used to. This year I've run a 42, but most days struggle to get to 20.

Had a run of 184 when back in my late 20's. Was roaming the roads and traveling every where in the country. Nine ball was the game, but straight pool was my fav. When I practiced, I always included a lot of work on my 14'1 game
A few years back when I turned 60 , my son and I were messing around on the anniversary down stairs and a good friend of his came in, my son saw the first part of 3 racks and his buddy watched the next part of the run to 136. At that time, I thought there would be more of those headed my way,,but LOL age has it's turning points.

Right.

I had a reasonably good start on the first rack but I misjudged the throw and jawed the ball and Thorsten ran 100 and out (in a merciful 20 minutes). I had a nice 35-0 lead over Darren and he ran 100 and out. I missed a really easy shot -- brain freeze? -- against Dennis and he ran about 90+ and out.

Tournaments are mostly about your average game, not your best run.

I think it would be nice if more players entered tournaments to support the game and get the experience. And of course measure themselves under tournament conditions.

So I like to periodically ask this when the subject comes up...

Those of you who have (comfortably) run over 50, do you remember a time when
you were stuck around 30 or 40? And do you remember any particular strategy or breakthrough
that got you over that hump?

I ran 43 once a very long time ago, like... probably almost 20 years.

I am 100% sure I'm a better player now than I was then, but I never even hit 40 anymore.
Except once or twice playing scotch doubles.

Any advice? I'm rated right around Fargo 600 btw. But that's with a low robustness score.
Is 20-something just what a player at my level is 'supposed' to run and 50 is not realistic?

In the 1960's I played a match for $300 and going to 175 points. I ran 168 and ended my run by pocketing the last ball while playing a safe. I won a couple of innings later and asked him if he wanted to play another one. He was pissed and starting cussing. Later I found out the he was angry because I stopped my run with a safety.
