While this isn’t necessarily all that impressive, it is, as best I can recall, my longest run-out.
I broke, scratched, nothing fell. My opponent makes the 1B, scratches. I get the table back like this:
Progress through the 8 pages to see what I did. I was so excited by the time I got to the 9-ball I had to take an extra few seconds to gather myself. My next goal is to run an entire rack. During practice, I always take ball in hand after the break if I don’t have a shot on the 1B, and I think this has helped, because I was able to study the layout of the table and I chose to start with the 2 in the corner, mostly because it had no other place to go, but more importantly because it meant that the 2, 3, 4 and 5 at least should be mine. Once I got there, I played it basically one ball at a time, make the shot the first, then add position. It worked out pretty well.
Yesterday was a damn good day overall. I bought a glove and wasn’t sure how I’d like it. I’m still not sure, but it’s nice having a pretty smooth sliding action consistently now. I also went back to doing chin-lock practice – and in doing so, I’ve upped my accuracy back to where it should be. I also think this is why I’m making more cut-shots than I have the last 2 weeks. Considering being sick the last 3 days, yesterday’s combined total of nearly 7 hours of pool really went pretty decently. 🙂
