Is that the biggest pack on video in a match?
They're still 4.5" corners with Diamond's pocket angles and deep shelves. The cloth was 2 weeks old . Saw Shane bobble some balls that went in too .Impressive for sure, but even though I’m assuming they were tour cut diamond pockets, those pockets were playing way too huge for these players, in my opinion.
In the second game Dennis runs, he has a tough shot on the 1-ball he’s cutting all the way down the long rail, just over the 8 minute mark of the above video. The inside edge of the 1-ball is sitting approximately 2 inches off the side cushion nose 3/4 of the table length away from the pocket.
I stopped the frame just before the ball enters the pocket, and the inside edge of the ball is still at least 1-1/2 inches off the side cushion nose, and goes straight in off the end cushion pocket facing without even rattling. That one loose shot is all I needed to see, and I didn’t bother watching beyond that.
They agreed to that stipulation . 2 on that spot and no same pattern all the time .It was a great run, but what's up with the two at the back of the rack every time? The one and the two end up near each other at the head of the the table every time, and the wing ball is wired. I consider that pattern racking. There certainly are more impressive packages that have been run. Still a great run but the conditions were very favorable.

Obviously, great players know how to take advantage of the equipment they are playing on. If they were tighter pockets, he probably would have split it dead center!They're still 4.5" corners with Diamond's pocket angles and deep shelves. The cloth was 2 weeks old .

There's crappy video of Ko's 11 rack steal on Dennis but you can't really see anything either. In the sidebar of this match there's the finale from the previous 120 where DO does the same thing - banks the one high and ends up dead out. He does this real comical schtick running around the table every rack. Probably bonked SVB more than the swing itself.they claim so.. i never seen more.
I understood that it was agreed upon. Imo, it does take something away from the feat, or I should say that a 10 pack accomplished with a truly random rack would be more impressive.They agreed to that stipulation . 2 on that spot and no same pattern all the time .
U got something wrong there. It is Ralf Souquet who have 27 racks in 8-ball. and Niels have ran 17 racks in practice match on 9-ball...Neils did 27 8 ball break and runs in a row I believe matlock did the same... also heard SVB did 27. Apparently 27 is the magic number to break.
