View Full Version : My best break

I heard some years ago that George Breedlove made 7 balls on the break while playing 9 ball on a 9 foot table. As the story goes, he ended up hooked on the remaining 2 balls somehow and had to play a push. I had always assumed that I would never get close to doing anything like that. I assumed wrong.

While playing on the practice bar tables at league tonight, I broke and made 6 balls on the break. Even more amazing is that I just about made 8. I left a ball hanging in one pocket by a hair and another ball within 2 inches of falling (which was on it's way to falling but ran out of gas). Luckily, I didn't have to push out and I finished the running the rack with a total of 4 strokes, including 1 for the break.

My question is, has anyone ever made 8 balls on the break, either on a bar table or a big table? Also, has anyone ever broke and ran a rack in less than 4 strokes without combo'ing the 9? /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Hi Wally,

Actually, #### Leonard knows someone that made the entire rack of 9 on the break.

I'll settle for six. That will work for me on any size table. Good job! /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif I saw a trick shot where Scott Lee made nine balls, but not an actual break.

That would have been a golden moment in time to have witnessed making an entire rack on the break! sid

I once made 5 balls in 9ball on a bar box and got hooked, and 5 balls in 8ball on a bar box. I felt lucky to do that. I never had that many again in 9ball. I've made 4 many times in 8ball.
