I don't want to revive any of the other threads and don't feel this warrants a new topic but I am curious if there has been any update to when to expect the video?

I don't follow JS's social media so please don't bash me for being ignorant.

I too am wondering about this damnable video. Iím starting to feel like I may not watch it at all if itís not out pretty soon. I hope theyíre not trying too hard with their scripted commentary and stuff. I like when John just goes on with his thoughts, not really getting too detailed most of the time.

Iíll give it another 2 or 3 weeks, due to my extreme desire to see it but that will abruptly end after 3 weeks time.

Well, I guess buyers of Magic Chalk & Kamui Chalk may want to consider switching.
Rumors are he only chalked his cue's tip during a practice session the night before &
never chalked the cue again until after he broke the record. Word is he was still playing
with that same cue last night & hadn't chalked the tip again since before setting the record.
I think he's pocketed 2.873 balls without having to reapply chalk....then again, maybe not.

5" corner pockets, and 5 1/2" side pockets; is comparable to lots of old 9' Brunswick tables. Just in case someone wants to try their luck..... I doubt 626 will fall for someone who doesn't chase it with rabid fanaticism. Good luck.

I'd say its an even bet it will never come out. Weird, but its been a long time already. The momentum has passed, IMO.

Slow down there, pardner.

It is likely perceived as a marketable.property and being handled as such.

Here a ĺ-hour interview of John Schmidt by Neight Mindham on a Cue It Up podcast a couple weeks ago. John talks about the 626, including the conditions, and a lot of related things.

[No mention of when the video will be available.]

If they screw around too long someone will shoot 647 and he won't sell 10 of them. Smart that they dropped the luve stream and went to recording for a marketable video, but it's definately been longer than ideal to have it ready for release.

Imo, the video has little value as a for-sale item. Less than a typical Efren video. Only the few diehards will buy it, and the further caveat is they must be straight pool die hards.

Itís value is in building a brand for JS. It should be free on YouTube and FB, to build the brand of JS.

He can then use it for promotion to book exhibitions, or maybe get ad revenue from YouTube (if it generates enough views).

All imo of course

I am wondering if they are shopping the footage around for a 30 for 30 type documentary. Who knows how they are trying to mobilize this but I think it would have been out already if it was just a straight video with commentary.

But who knows, I may be hoping too much.

I talked to the official racker. The voice-over is in progress. The idea is to make a nice product. I can understand how that will take some time. There is also some concern about piracy. The raw video has already been viewed by the people at the BCA.

Whats all this talk about:

If he dont act now, someone will best his run soon.

Not many will be interested? Really?

Well, like all you, my opinion is:

He can take his sweet time because nobody is gonna be putting up a 627+ "anytime soon".

Anyone that think someone will, they got action with me.


Don't let your bark be bigger than your stroke.

If I had plenty of money, I would probably lose more often.

agree..and although the guy has been supremely humble after breaking the record, it was nice to hear john admit how tough a feat 400+ really is in a recent podcast.

re: john's 626 video, whenever/however it comes out, I will be there.


peace & love
