Here's what I posted in a couple other threads recently. It's likely to be the record for most consecutive wins in the U.S. Open 9-Ball Championship, but I am not sure of that.

With his 3 consecutive victories at the U. S. Open 9-Ball Championships, Shane Van Boening has now won 23 matches in a row (plus 3 byes) with an overall game-winning percentage of 65%. Here's how it has gone.

Shane is 23-0 in the last three years at the US Open 9-ball. To me, that's far more impressive than Mosconi's run of 526, though not quite mentionable with a) Mosconi's fifteen world 14.1 championships from 1941-57, b) Lassiter's three straight Johnston City all-around titles in the early 1960's against dozens of future BCA hall of famers, c) Earl Strickland's six World 9-ball titles, or d) Efren Reyes' five Derby City All-around titles.

Thing is, though, that Shane's streak is still going, and we might yet regard it as the greatest ever achievement over the glorious green felt.

Good luck to Shane in extending this already historic streak.

Yet, he can't be called a world champion until he wins overseas according to some on this forum. Ridiculous. The us open is a ranking points tournament, making it in my book, a world championship. A major for sure.

Just look at those winning percentages. The guy is really slipping, I'm telling you. If he drops down into the 50's I'll drop him from my fantasy team.

You got it right!

This guy can really play. I hope he knocks off the next US Open and at least 1 international event, but what he has done already ranks him amongst the Best Ever!

ask shane this, "Shane, are you a world champion?". he will tell you the answer.

Actually, he can't be called a world champion until he, er, wins a world championship...much like everyone else.

Shane is, of course, not a world champion, but when people take note of it, they need to also take note of the fact that Shane is just 31. At 31, he is already an all-time great, carving out a competitive resume that will be remembered as one of the greatest ever, maybe even THE greatest ever. Mark my words --- Shane will win a world championship, and I'm guessing, more than one.

Just like the Japan Open and the China Open, the US Open is a WPA Ranking Points event, but not one of these three events is a World Championship. I think you are right to call these events "majors."

Shane is ALREADY an all time great and at 31, he doesn't have to apologize to anybody that he hasn't won every big title possible. Shane's career is, in all probability, less than half over, and his skills are still on the rise.

Don't be surprised if the best is yet to come. Good luck to Shane, whose name will probably be remembered with Mosconi, Lassiter, Sigel and Reyes whenever he retires from competition.

For now, let's enjoy the ride.

Thanks for the information. Do you have access to the 2007 Championship results so that we can have Shane's trayectory for all 4 US Opens? Any assistance will be highly appreciated.

Pretty amazing he got a bye in the first round of 3 consecutive US Opens..... What are the odds of that happening consecutively?

Did he get a first round bye in any year from 2008 to 2011?
