There were some top pros from many years gone by who advocated practicing an hour a day minimum trying to run a rack without touching a rail- seems it was felt that this drill sharpened pin point precision on cue ball position needed for 14.1. The propositon bet however is ridiculous.

I will let anyone try to run one rack without the cue ball touching the rail
$500 bet on each rack

John Schmidt invited

I might offer 10 to one odds on 3 racks
your $100 to my $1000

Anyone who wishes to try can come to my house while i an staying home
to convalesce.

no one barrels

play on a like new Gold Crown 5 with simonis,no gimmick table

there's a drill that ronnie alcano showed in a tar match video with jayson shaw..alcano took around 10 balls and spreads them in kind of blob around the footspot..
make all the balls without hitting another ball or a rail..similar to the brainwash, but easier/more difficult, depending on how you see it..


peace & love

Since no one picked up on this....

Leon was a no-cushion and behind the back (sometimes at the same time) specialist. Here is a thread that discusses him.

https://forums.azbilliards.com/showthread.php?t=300673

He is in Ripley's for running 180 shooting with the cue behind his back.

A friend who was in San Francisco in the 1960s claims Leon ran 100 or 150 without a cushion and with a standard rack break. (As opposed to just spreading the balls on the table each rack as Knuchell mentions in the thread linked above.)

In The Straight Pool Bible, Babe Cranfield says that the greatest single run he ever saw was by Greenleaf. It was only a run of 60, but the cue ball touched the cushion only twice. I assume it was not for a proposition but just in a match.

It's not what you don't know that get's you in trouble
It's what you know that just ain't so
