Keeping track of your long 14.1 run


Keeping track of your long 14.1 run

I actually never kept track before. I had a nice 21 ball run yesterday so I'm going with that as my all time high. I'd like to break 30 but sadly I don't play this game very often.

What are your high runs?

    I rarely play it either, but I've been trying to do more of it lately. Its a great all around skill game. My high run is 57.

    Thats the thing. Most of the people I play don't even know the game exists. I spend most of my time playing friends and family in 9-ball and 8-ball. I almost always would rather play 14.1 than anything else.

    Is that in "Canadian"?

    Probably 25-30 once. I had a long binge of straight pool with my friends. It's a great game.

    I didn't know the exchange rate for high runs so I just went with the Canadian number. LOL

    I had a long 38-ball run once in a league. I needed 54 to win, but, the best part is that I had the second highest run. That was my third year of shooting pool. They had a get together banquet type thing at the end.

    My 2nd place prize was a free 6-month subscription to Pool & Billiards Magazine. Whoooppeee! That was back in 1997 or 98, and get this, I'm still getting the magazine!

    If anyone there reads this, your subscription might have just expired.

    Way back in them good ole days when I was still young and had a good set of eyes, I once ran 37 in 14.1.

    We also played a similar game, but instead of racking at 14 you would line up your balls after your turn was over in a straight line from the head spot. I'm not sure what we called it but was something like "call shot continuous".

    Anyways, I ran 53 that way.

    I used to play more 14.1 in college than I do now. My high run back then (10-12 years ago) was in the high 70's. I tried to top that recently and I couldn't break into the 60's. I'm weakest on the break shot so I typically stop at 42 or 56.

    If I play a lot of 9B, I find 14.1 difficult due to over-stroking everything. I need to consciously "turn off" my stroke and carefully plan my pattern to minimize CB movement.

    Wasn't it Willie Mosconi that said "...there are two ways to play; slow and slower"?

  11. Bishopmosconiac on 7/13/2007 10:14:00 AM

    Yes, but he also said that when having an off day, he would speed up his play and he would invariably play better.

    After re-entering the game I'm stuck on 24.
