At Unison Pool Bar in Montreal, Nick Nokolaidis pocketed 16706 balls in 24 hours for charity trying to beat his record of 17000-is this WITHOUT missing?

I wonder how his back felt afterwards. I know mine after 4 or 5 hours is very sore.

1113 racks. The guy probably couldnt tell you his name if you asked him after it was over.

Hey Carol,

I don't think it is without missing. He was doing the same kind of thing last year at the BCA...trying to set a record for the most games played in a 24 hour period. I played him a 3 games after he had already been playing about 19 or 20 hours. The guy was exhausted. Anyhow, in that particular attempt....it didn't matter if he won or lost the games, he was just trying to play the most games...period.

I would guess that this new attempt is something like that. He probably breaks the balls wide open and can shoot them in any order he likes. Once he clears a rack, they know he made 15 balls (or 9 if they are using the 9-ball rack)...and they count racks. I can't say for sure...but that would make the most sense. I can't even see Earl Strickland making that many balls without missing...LOL.

BTW, you are going to be in Vegas this year, right? I always love seeing your smiling face....and you are always so cheerful that it picks me up whenever we cross paths!
