I made 6 (yes, six!) balls on the break once, and I was snookered. But I
didn't care, I was doing the Cheshire grin. I felt like "Oh, I know how
to break now. No problem." ;)

I mentioned it to Howard Vickery (pro). He said he'd had a seven. Could
it be just the natural one-upmanship of the pros?

: I made 6 on a 7 foot table about 15 years ago. I have had many 4's, but
: I don't remember any 5's. Whatever, it is just a fluke, because my break
: isn't that strong.

I've never had a 6, but I made a *called* 5 on an 8 foot table once.
I'd never called a number of balls before, and you can believe that
I never will again.  People (a bit gullible, perhaps) were asking
how I knew I would drop 5.  Well, when you're as good as I am ...

I have a fantastically strong break-actually have had people ask me to
break softer because it was hurting their ears- and have made as many as
10 balls on the break..........................did i forget to mention
that i occasionally fish...let me tell you about this fish?????

good shooting
Bob

PS..i think a rail was missing on the table when i made 10..HA!

made 7 once (including the cue ball...........hi, hi, hi)
Still 6 isn't that bad.

(the other player really enjoyed running the table on me after that
scratch !!!)

Back in 93 at the VNEA Championships I watched Larry Carter (of Olympia
WA) break and make eight bals (four stripes and four solids) against a
german player in the side room. And yes he did run out. He got an
ovation from the crowd that stopped play on the twenty tables in that
room. After the run out his opponent approached him and said in broken
english "no one in Germany can do dat!"

(my best is 5 without scratching)
