I had a 57 ball run on August 13, 2021. [Yikes - Friday the 13th]
I feel with you David. I have some trouble with my back as well. I did not play for a while now because of this and it sucks... I hope you get well, soon.Ran 112 about twenty minutes ago in an attempt to run 200+, missed a very makable, dare say easy break shot. It's past midnight here, I'm feeling tired, old, back pain is bothering me, and feeling sad as it's now a certainty that I'll have to disassemble and give away my Brunswick and call it a wrap. Our dear friend of the family and neighbor Mathias, the owner of the house and "my" practice room, died and all through these rough and weird times we were hoping to find a place to set the table up, but these are the last few weeks before the building is getting renovated and the new owners are going to move in. This is the third day now that I started practicing again, a swan song of sorts, my other runs tonight including anything from a 44 to several attempts where I didn't even get into a second rack, playing for less than a couple hours total. There aren't any pool halls anymore, no one to practice with, not to mention the pandemic. Oh well… Having said that, it's hard to complain at the age of over fifty, not having practiced or played more than a couple times this year, nor more than half a dozen times in a year or two. Simply don't have the time, nor the health, to practice when there are no tournaments, all my former students moved elsewhere and/or appear to have given up playing and instead doing bets at wetten.com, not that anyone plays Straight Pool in this country to begin with outside of National Championships and qualifiers to get into those. Please excuse the rant, but it feels as though I might as well live in the woods somewhere. Good night everyone and sweet dreams!
Greetings from Switzerland, David.

As a fellow former snooker player, I'm willing to concede my hold of second place on the leader board and call it a 140.Either a 126 or 140. I have to stop playing at 10pm due to a crank granny downstairs. Stopped at 126, went to bed, went to work, walked the doggo, tried to get going again, scratched at 140.
EDIT: BTW, this is what it looks like when a former snooker player who has never played a real game of 14.1 and doesn’t know anyone that plays 14.1 makes a hundred Apologies for any ugliness.
Nice work Steve!I had a 104 Ball run on 10/12/21 against my good buddy Johnny Boy in a game at Bayshore Billiiards Long Island NY.
I pocketed 105 and scratched
This run was the first time that anyone ran a 100+ on John, so I piopped his cherry, and he toasted me with a round of Stella’s
Here is that 77. It seems to be nice kinda old school run. Picking up racks piece by piece. I also did open with bank shot from full rack but got little unlucky and had no decent shot afterwards.Nice work Steve!
I also ran 77 on practice 10/12/2021. Missed easy shot in the end..
