Question 14.1 high runs... be honest - 10-26-2019, 10:28 AM

I'm asking because of the "EXPERTS" that keep taking shots at the 14.1 event. ME: 37 balls. I'm FAR from a player at 14.1 but i like it and appreciate the skill needed.

My Best Run so far was 21. My 2nd Best was 17. I don't play Straight Pool very much, but I have tried it.

We finally have something of a pool hall reopening in the area and I'll be able to get on a 9ft again. This tournament has inspired me to give this game a try. Playing on anything smaller in my mind just doesn't count.


The rail is your best friend.

32, sloppy, required a few banks and a lot of luck. 2nd best was in the 20's, I can usually get that after a few hours practicing.

I actually tried it for the first time a couple weeks ago for about an hour. Worn cloth, 4 1/4" pro cut Diamond, I got to 15 and I was like, that's enough of that. (watching the 14.1 championships made me try again, so ill just keep updating).

Mid 50s. My highest on video is 47, posted in the 14.1 forum straight pool challenge. I expect to break that this year, things are going well lately.

Things tend to go well on a 7' valley with new cloth.

My high run was on a 9' Brunswick. Average runs are similar on the 2 tables as well. The extra crowding on a 7' makes it tougher than you'd think.

Had a run in the 90's three times in the 1990's, but haven't played much straight pool at all since then. My best was 91, on 4 1/2" pockets accomplished twice.

In other words, when Danny Harriman says I can't make a ball in the ocean, relative to his abilities, he's right.

I do consintly run in the 20's. That's how tough this game is

Boy, it's a tough game if you dont play it all the time. And even if you do! I got a 23 on an 8 foot with 4 5/8 pockets. Haven't really played it much.

Yes I was thinking that, much like 8 ball. You shoot straight.
