14.1 Hi-Run Challenge at BCAPL - 05-13-2011, 02:12 PM

We opened up the booth yesterday afternoon and got real busy.

No good runs. Great location in the middle of the front ballroom.

2 - 9' Diamonds. Both tables have a camera and monitor on them so everyone can see.

I think the high run was 59 - and total of 122 (4 attempts) by Jesse Engle.

More to come - maybe some pics can be posted - it is a good setup.

Mark Griffin

BTW: Bob Jewett pledged $10,000 if anyone ties or beats Mosconi 526. CSI matched it so it stands at $20,000 bonus. Highly unlike;y and maybe next year we can get this up to at least $50,000.

Great news Mark!!! Love the $20K for a 526+. That should draw a crowd even if it would be a superhuman feat. How about some pics of the set up? Congrats and good luck!!!

Pictures will be coming- I cannot do that stuff!

So far ( off top of my head): Schmidt, Davis, Harriman, engles, Dechaine, and many more. About 60 tries so far

this challenge should be open to all players EVERYWHERE who can prove that they beat mosconi's record. mosconi did it during a liesurly session. it's not very likely that someone will run that many balls on cue, so to speak. if schmidt or another top player breaks the run on their own table at home, they should still get the money.

How could someone prove that they did it?

We don't want someone trying to pull a rip off move on Mark.
Without proof, it didn't happen.

Don't take life so seriously. It isn't permanent.

Any news on what is actually happening there?

Any word on who is playing and what they are running?

The silence is deafening.

um, how did mosconi "prove" he did it? if someone breaks the record at home with no witnesses or video, then obviously that's not going to cut it.

Sausage: You should already know this.

This is supposed to be a thread about the straight pool competition put on by Mark Griffin and others. I just talked to Marop and he said they have had over 200 entries. Lots of exposure to straight pool = A Good thing.

Why are we getting side tracked talking about nonsense?!

He who puts up the money makes the rules.

dennis: i DID know it. i posed that question to the other poster so he could find out for himself. and yes, exposure is good but the odds of someone actually running 527+ balls on cue are astronomical. i can't imagine how this simple statement of fact can be denied. this is a fun event but in reality has little to do with mosconi's record.

yeah yeah, ron, i know, i was just throwing it out there that a SERIOUS challenge to mosconi's record SHOULD be open because (as i previously stated); it's going to be virtually impossible to beat that record "on cue". it is much more likely to be broken if the money were available to ANYONE AT ANYTIME. then schmidt, harriman and all the other high run gurus would have some real incentive to break it. it's not going to happen the way the money is constrained and those who put up the money probably know this....

So exposure is good. Great, then. We are agreed. Now maybe someone can talk about the event itself.

The rest is just sideshow crap to turn people's heads and get them to look at it. We should know better.

By the way, for those who are interested in the event itself, Marop just told me Schmidty had a 4 pack of 121,89, and a couple others totaling 280. I think he might be in first right now.
