Nice run. I watched about half of it. I assume you don't mind a couple of questions and comments from the peanut gallery?
At 1:39 you were shooting a ball that looks like maybe the 12. What was your plan for the cue ball on that one?
What were you trying to do with the cue ball at 16:24 when you were shooting the 8 ball?
You tend to stand up during your follow through on harder hit shots. If it works for you then great. You seem to shoot well like that but it makes me a little nervous.
Thanks again for posting.
Thanks. Don't mind at all.
At 1:39 I wanted to get above the 10-ball to go into the 5-1-11 cluster and have the 7 for insurance. I over shot it so I played the 7, 10 then went into the cluster off the 11.
At 16:24, I wanted to come up on the left side of the 9-ball and play the 9 then 2 and come across for position on the 8 for the break ball. Instead as you can see, I played terrible position and had to cut the 2 really thin since I didn't like the 9 first. It was definitely a poorly played out pattern, and not the only one.
I have noticed that I sometimes stand up on those long shots. I guess I'm just anxious to see the outcome, but of course that is a terrible excuse and bad fundamentals.
Thanks for the comments and for watching.
*Very* nicely done! And congratulations on your new high run!
I have to say, the closing moments of that first rack were very unconventional. Would you mind if I offered a suggestion? In that first rack, at about 3:48 with four balls left on the table:
...you shot the 14-ball into the upper righthand corner and left yourself with a severe angle on the 10-ball in the lower righthand corner. You made the thin slice on the 10-ball and the cue ball obviously took off, overrunning position on the 9-ball keyball in the side, where you had to do a little bit of cue ball gymnastics (severe low/inside english to check off of the rails) to get position on the 15-ball break ball.
The better shot, at 3:48, was to take the 10-ball into the lower righthand corner with just a touch of inside english, and drift the cue ball towards the gap between the 14-ball and the 15-ball. From there, you would've had a stop shot on the 14-ball in the side, a stop shot on the 9-ball in the other side, and be perfect on your 15-ball break ball.
Just a different/simpler way to view that pattern, to make it easier on you the next time you see it. But obviously, you made some great shots, ended up perfect on the break ball, so it's moot.
Again, congrats on a new high, and I know there's a 100 around the corner for you!
There are many people willing to critique your game here on this forum, I would say that there is nothing wrong with your shot on the fourteen around 3:48. You just did not draw the cue ball enough, the shot only requires a little draw ( two or three inches) not a severe draw stroke - but remember the rooms humidity plus how well insulated it is has a huge impact on how much the low spin will activate on the white ball. It does look like the table plays wet which makes it more difficult to break out the rack and draw the cue ball. If I am feeling confident and conditions are somewhat dry - I always play the fourteen - this does not mean it's the best shot for anyone else and Sean's ten is the more conservative approach, I support the right but I'm leaning to the left, no really congratulations on the 70 and I viewed most of it I would suggest a pro instructor on shots your having difficulty with.
