I thought they were the same game, but apparently, Billiards Digest thinks otherwise.

"The versatile Kelly won titles in four different games during his career: one-pocket, 14.1, straight pool, and three-cushion."

As far as I know 14.1 and straight pool are one and the same. Either there is a typo or there is something I don't know. If so someone please enlighten me!

Yes, they have to be talking about rotation.

Here we call straight pool a form of 14.1 where when all the balls a pocket (not leaving .1) they are spotted in one straight line (15 balls) from the spot and the inning continues instead of racking them back after 14.

Alain Martel was a marvelous straight pool player.

According to this month's BD Eddie Kelly won both 9-ball and 1P one year at Johnston City (1969?). He came out of retirement in the mid-80's and won a 3C tournament. Then in the early 90's he won a 1P tournament, beating, among others, Cornbread Red and Keith McCready.
