Nice Shooting. you pocket very well.
You should definitley seek instruction in 14.1 from someone who knows the game and patterns. Quite a few times you were on the right path, but you changed things up which caused some issues. you had some much better patterns you could of played. and a few times i think you may have fallen into position as for you were not playing to be there.
Just an observation
keep shooting well !
Thanks Seth and Steve!
Steve, I do recognize I didn’t approach the table properly throughout the racks like I was instructed to, even while I was shooting I recognized it. I had non-14.1 things I’m working on that was my primary focus, yet I still try to play the game as often as possible. As for 14.1, i know I should’ve identified break and key ball as early as possible, knock out rail balls (when cue is at narrow angle or steep angle only if i have insurance ball to pocket once cue comes off rail and into cluster) and balls that block other balls from being pocketed in corner pocket. I know right out the gate I need to analyze the table to see what goes where and what balls can be pocketed to open up clusters, if possible, opening up away from the break ball. I know I shouldn’t go into a cluster except i know i have an insurance ball to pocket. I know that my last balls should ideally be square in shape so that all i need to do is pretty much stop shots down to an ideal break shot position for the cueball, etc etc.
In spite of my novice run, I’m still very proud of my run! I’m even more proud of my progress on the things I’ve been working on. All in all, those things plus what I was taught in 14.1 will gel and you will see even higher runs from me.

I was not knocking you at all. just giving some insight. If you watch the 1st rack you had a Breakball and Keyball the whole rack and then you shot it away with a few ball left to break a remaining cluster with a few balls left. you did have other chances where you could of solved that with preserving the KB/BB.
Keep It Up
Oh, because I scratched it’s 28? I didn’t even think about that. I guess that last ball would spot in a game, huh?
Thanks for the feedback. My patterns are weak for sure and it gets really frustrating when I have perfectly runnable racks and I don’t get there because I can’t see the right patterns. I was recently told I just need to play more straight pool, so that’s what I intend to do. Maybe one day I’ll start seeing the right shots, lol.
46 this morning...getting closer to that elusive 50 ball mark.
If you want a chuckle, check out the circus shot to open the stack after the break in the second rack.
I’m starting to see patterns a little better but I’m still really slow about it (and probably seeing the wrong patterns). I’m going to keep at it though. I’ll hit 50 sooner or later if I don’t give up on it.
32 and 34. All the fat trimmed. Total time for the vid is about 6 and a half minutes.
Edit: I deleted the 28 and combined the edited 30, 32, & 34 into one vid so as not to create much clutter and for easier viewing. Total time for all three runs is a little over ten minutes.
I won’t clog up the thread with these vids anymore. I’ll post one when I get in the 40s and I won’t post another until I manage to break 50 or until next years challenge—whichever comes first. :thumbup:
