I Potted A Long Red

I Potted A Long Red

I potted a long red and gave out a scream,

as it was the best shot that I'd ever seen.

Still needing 8 snookers, I thought this could mean

the start of a comeback. The best that there's been!

I needed to focus and not start to dream,

as my best ever break was only sixteen!

I potted the black and gave out a scream

as I'd aimed for the green in the worst miss there's been!

Thanks Colin.

Yes, I can't remember the number of times I have impressed myself with a difficult pot and then missed an easy pot over the pocket. I think I once potted from brown to black to get a break of 22. Not sure how I did that though! Thanks again, George

I think sixteen was about my highest break George. I blame the specs. I know that feeling of potting a long ball though. Usually followed by missing an easy next shot. Made me smile this one. Cheers, Col.
