An easy snooker 147 - 11-08-2018, 11:00 AM

You might get the impression from some threads here that Ronnie O'Sullivan is the only snooker player to play perfect games (maximum of 147 points in one frame), but most tournament 147s are by other players. Here is one in the current Champion of Champions tournament by Mark Selby:

Note Selby's fundamentals. In particular, note what he does with his back leg and when he does it.

Selby, who is from Leicester is known as the "jester from Leicester." Those two words rhyme there, evidently. O'Sullivan prefers to call him "The Torturer" for how much pressure he puts on his opponents in matches. Selby is the current #1 (based on money won in ranking events over the last two years). This was his fifth lifetime 147 in competition.

His opponent, Neil Robertson, won the match. Robertson has the record for most "centuries" (breaks over 100 points) in a season of 103. Robertson has won over $4,000,000 in his career and has had problems from video game addiction.

Great run. What about his back foot? He looks like all the other "square on" snooker players. I've tried that stance and was in pain in less than 20min. No way i could play if i had to get into that position. Robertson's style is even more contorted. No way Jose.

The chances for a 147 looked very much over once the one red ball was knocked to the other end of the table. Nice run.

I think that red was not nearly as problematic as this one in Ronnie's 13th 147:

Here is the video the above still is from which has all of his 147s. The start time (for non-smartyphone users) is set to the image above:

For me it's the pace/fluidness of the play. Selby a 147 in12minutes12seconds.
Far to many 9 ball games find a player eyeballing the orange after 12 minutes


A bull without horns is still dangerous.

Law of logical arguement-Anything is possible when you dont know what you are talking about.

Nice clean run. Robertson did him a favor by opening the reds and leaving a shot.

Yes, and leaving no two reds touching was a big problem pre-solved.

Bob I'm showing this is Selby's 3rd maximum break.

Mark Selby is a great player and deserves to be on top....
...but he seems very strained compared to the Rocket...poetry in motion.

Robertson, to me, looks like he just got tenure as a professor.

It has to be an easy layout for Selby to attempt a maximum. He is known for his pragmatist style in match-play, i.e., he prioritizes winning over anything else, it's the only reason that his 147 record doesn't reflect his skill level.


The truth shall make you fret

I thought I heard on the stream that he had three before.

And re: the lack of flow comment, Selby does often look like he is under more pressure than his opponents.

He keeps making that black ball and she keeps putting it back up on the table. How annoying!

I play with a snooker stance and I think it is not optimal for playing pool.
With 1,94m, Im quite tall and this stance, where you more or less lie on your cue works well on a snooker table, but on a much lower pool table it is a bit different.
I have very straight cueing because of my chin and chest touching the cue, but the closer the white and the objectball gets, it gets more difficult to check if my aiming is still right, when Im down on the shot.
This is not so much a problem when playing 9ball, but for example in straight pool, where you play most of the shots on the bottom part of the table this gets you in trouble quite quickly.



Mark Selby worked on his technique quite a lot througout his carreer. I remember watching him practice many years ago, where he still had his head wobble, because he was cueing under his non dominant eye. If you watch some older footage of his early years, you can see what i mean.
