High straight pool run for women - 02-08-2006, 06:03 PM

I watched a match between Jean Balukas and Ewa Mataya from 1987 and Jay Helfert was a commentator. I think it was he that mentioned that Jean had a high run of 135 balls back then. Does anyone know if Karen or Allison or Hsin Mei Liu or anyone else has run more? Did Jean break her own record?

As far as I know Jeanette Lee's 152 at Amsterdam Billiards is the highest run ever by a woman. I don't know of Fisher or Corr's highest runs. If I had to guess I'd say Jeanette Lee has more 100+ runs than any other female player ever. I daresay if the WPBA tour was straight pool instead of 9-ball Jeanette would be on top.

Jean B. had many runs over 100 balls. She was by far the best women player of her era. And probably the equal of Allison, Karen and Jeanette. I suspect she could still compete on the highest level if she so desired. But I doubt we will see her again. She appears to have no interest in playing competitive pool anymore.

Jen, do you play Straight Pool at all? I thought your positional play when you took down Wilson two Thursdays ago was superb, and you looked to have what it takes to excel at Straight Pool.

As she ran them on me, I can vouch for Jeanette's run of 152 at Amsterdam Billiard Club. She has also run a 124 against Mika Immonen. I believe both runs occurred in 2002. Jeanette has run over 100 in my presence about six times. In the 1999 National Straight Pool championships in NYC, she was victorious over each of Dallas West, John Ervolino, and Jimmy Fusco, so it's no fluke. And, of course, Gene Nagy was her mentor, which speaks volumes.

Jean Balukas told me that her best ever run was 134, and further claimed that 134 was also legendary Ruth McGuiness' lifetime high run.

Of course, all these runs came in practice. Women's US Open 14.1 matches, for many years, were races to 75 up to the final, which was a race to 100.

Thank you all for your knowledge and replies. I knew there would be an authority or two on here for an answer.

I remember reading an article on BD on Loree Jon Jones and I think it was mentioned that LJJ has also a high run in the 150 vicinity. And I've heard that Jennifer Chen has a high run of 158 but this is unconfirmed, didn't find any info on this.

Jeanette's super impressive .I would think her capabilities have been able to exceed that 132 or 134 whatever it is.

women's high run.. - 02-09-2006, 04:38 AM

I couldn't help getting intrigued by this thread- straight pool devotee that I am. I know that along with the tried and true 14:1 players like Jean and Jeanette, there are some other impressive straight pool-playing females like Line Kjorsvik, Helena Thornfeldt and Linda Haywood, for example. I would love to see, and have tried to collaborate with people on having, a women's straight pool world championship. Since 8-ball is so much in the spotlight right now, it seems only fitting.

BTW, does anyone know then, what the women's high run actually is, in competition or in practice? Jeanette's 150-something seems to be the best, correct? I only inquire because whatever it is, I intend to break it...

OK, OK..

Lets say you have the best female player in the world, where does that put her in the over all.. 500 or 600th ranking against the men?

The ladies record is 68 (Ewa, in 1992) in the US Open. Someone (Loree?) ran 64 and then Ewa ran 68 in the same tourney.

There are also 500-600 TIMES more men playing straight pool. That doesn't prove anything. Men are going to dominate pool in any form...there's more of them playing, they've been doing it longer, spend more time at it, and a lot of them usually need to subsist on the winnings. I would say there are 500-600 times more men that gamble at pool too, and the figure is even higher for those that have to make their living at it.
