Put me down for another 3 digit run...121 on 1/26/19

Started the day off with 5 attempts. My highs were 67,56 and 44 then blanked out... took a break and returned to the table for 5 more tries. Ran the 121 right out of the gates on that second set of attempts.

First 14.1 practice for this year. Diamond 9ft table.
91 it is. :) 1/28/19
It was third try after run of 1 and 13. I probably do some kind commentated/intructional vid from it because it was tricky run. A lot of secondary break shots.
Also I was slow at pace of play because I did not feel table speed well and I tried to play smart... lol

4 in my first ever 14.1 league match. the tables are diamond pro-ams so they are pocket sizes ive never really dealt with before. still, it feels good to finally get a chance at a 14.1 league.

John Schmidt hasn't been around since 2014 but he is still an AZB member. Do his recent runs count?

i made 12 and 14 this weekend, i feel im getting better now understanding pocket speed
13 last weekend

i often used to hit too soft, even for straight rail too soft, but adding that extra bid of pace sends it rolling instantly

playing on 9ft and sometimes 8ft with 5 inch pockets

I am happy to say that I hit a nice 84 during a league match..... I also have a good number of 50's during some other matches this season.

21 sounds like a good start. Now you know that you can get into another rack. Kept practicing.... (Rome wasn't built in a Day)!

the times i made 15 it was never a break shot
It was i made the 15 and got close to the stack
Sometimes if im in line with the corner pocket i can dial up a hard whack that sends a corner ball into the hole

Sometimes i cant but the times i do i dont ever get much after

I have to correct my mistake. Run was only 90.
I did count it again when edited the video from it.
I muted audio because there was background music. Added (maybe) instructional commentary afterwards. :)
