At the following link,

There are some excellent clips of some maximums. The most amazing one is Ronnie "The Rocket" O'Sullivan's max in 1997 that was completed in a mere 5 minutes and change. Also a clip of Cliff Throburn's Max in 1983. Really some good historic stuff, and fun to watch.

Ronnie's 147 in under 6 minutes is fantastic.

Another thing about this site is the way that snooker is covered. They really have some in depth coverage of the players, matches, and tournaments. They do a fine job of covering the game and giving it the publicity it deserves. It would be nice if pool was covered that way over here.

Mike Howerton's AZBilliards is as close as you can get to know what is going on in the USA in the world of pool.

Mike's a great guy to boot...

Great link, his run is amazing! Does anyone know a way to save that clip to my hard drive? It runs rather choppy, and if I choose save target it only saves the path not the clip itself.
Thanks.

That is great stuff, but it's been up there for almost a year. It would be nice if they added something new from time to time.

can anyone work out how to download the file to your computer rather than to view the streaming video ?
