DCC Straight pool is coming up - Stuart Pettman 117 Compressed down to 20:33 - 01-18-2014, 10:13 AM

Stuart Pettman runs 117 at the 2013 DCC 14.1 Challenge. Compressed down to 20:33 so the video is basically only Stuart going into his stance, shooting and the balls rolling. All of the scouting and planning were removed to make the shooting and patterns jump out. Great shooting Stuart. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Je5f...ature=youtu.be

Come to the Derby and see some of the best straight pool players in the world. Give it a try 12 attempts for a $100. We have over $7500 added this year and we pay it all out. The best play and they get paid. this year we are back on the 9' Diamonds. Also this year we have a new name The "George Fels Memorial Straight Pool Challenge" to honor George Fels who passed away on December 31, 2013. Watch or participate if at the event look for streaming from Inside Pool. Thanks for checking out this video.

Let me know if you like the compressed format.


Hi Runs 14.1-52 (age+3) 9B-5 8B-3

I do like the compressed format, but it's got to be an awful lot of work.

Love the compressed format!

What a great run.

Just out of curiosity:

-what size pockets?

-can you tell us about the player? Where is he from, what's his high run, etc?

Great job, thanks!

He has an autobiography out about his time on the snooker tour. It's very interesting to see how that's organized.

I can't speak for Stuart, however I do know some snooker players will mark their shaft where their bridge hand should be, and some will also place marker where their grip had should be. together this would provide a consistent bridge length and ensure your arm is at a 90 degree angle rather than slightly forward or behind.


I would kill for a nobel peace prize

Yes although it is not so clear with Stuarts cue as to what the markings represent.
It does seem to indicate the length of follow through.
Marco Fu was one player that did mark their cue.

can someone clarify it was suggested that the run of 117 on a 10ft table is a world record
is this correct?

I am fully aware of Mosconi's run on a 8ft table

I met him a few times in Thailand. He runs a pool hall in Bangkok called Hustlers.
I believe he had only played straight pool a couple of times before running 117 at DCC, and played a lot of unorthodox snooker patterns. His main games are snooker, 9 ball and 10 ball and he is a monster at all those games.
When I first saw him, I was like man, this guy's the straightest shooter I've ever seen, anywhere. Then I watched him destroy Mika Immonen playing 10 ball when Mika made a stop in Thailand and realized he was the real deal.

By the way, the spot on his cue he always keeps it facing up to make sure that the shaft is always facing the same direction for radial consistency. Snooker cues have an indent at the butt to keep track of it, but pool cues don't.

The "world record" refers to the highest verified (i.e. videotaped) straight pool run on a 10-foot table.

He seemed to have to come with quite a few tough shots and went blindly into clusters numerous times getting luckily with one makable shot. I say this with all due respect, for that run I would rather see it uncut to get a sense of his thinking as he was playing.

On first look it looks like he doesn't know what he is doing and is surviving through luck and his shot making. When he finally missed it caught up with him the way he played the last few balls. You can see the three balls in line in the cluster that are going to be like hitting a wall. He had a number of ways to open that cluster with the balls that were open and he chose about the worst one. That is why I say I would like to see it unedited to see if he looked at anything else and what his thinking was.

Having said that I know he is primarily a snooker player. When I was in Europe in the 80's I played quite a few snooker players 9 ball and they often cinched balls and didn't even seem to play position they were so confident in their shot making on what to them was an easy pool table.

Reproduced from my post in the 14.1 forum:

Pretty interesting run. Obviously, Pettman's end patterns are far from classic, but I saw so many things I liked, and which pool players should take note of:

1) Pettman's skill in playing shape when he was forced to run into balls during the rack was exquisite, a snooker skill that translates well to 14.1.

2) Pettman's speed control was very impressive and his cueing was rock solid, snooker skills that translate well to 14.1.

3) On the break shots at the beginning of the rack, with just one exception, Pettman's attack angles into the rack were solid and he hit the break shots with authority.

Still, what impressed me the most was something that's very subtle and is often overlooked by viewers of 14.1 - Pettman's cue ball practically never ended up anywhere near a rail! This is a common attribute among both top snooker players and the most elite 14.1 players and it's definitely much harder to accomplish than it might seem. I would urge developing players in 14.1 to take note of this.

Nice run. Thanks for sharing.
