They just donít know or canít see it. Even people who look kinda like John Schmidt are good at straight pool, I can attest to this.

I did run 1000 one-handed and a bunch of people saw it, We have it on video but we can't let anybody see it because it's priceless. But don't worry everybody signed a paper to prove it! If that's not enough, Look at my haters!

They don't hate John. It's far worse than hate. It's jealousy, envy etc...etc.

Just imagine:

Someone plays 14.1 and has been playing for decades. Well, they "think" they are good players and they are in small circles because they run 100 whatever balls once, twice or however many times in their life during practice or ran 50 to 70 balls and out once or twice.

Then you have the few thats rans 200 to 300 balls once or so in their lives.

Now, all of the above just can't understand how anyone else can run 626 balls. Whoever did ot must have cheated or done it on something or SOMETHING!!!! Because THEY could never even get close and can't even imagine running around the block much less around the table making 626 balls.

You know what? I kind of understand the above. I ran 156 balls in competition "once" in a private match and hqve ran 50 to 75 and out several times in the past.

Yes, I love 14.1 and it drives me nuts to know I'm so far below the best it pisses me off but, it doesn't change my character nor my morals.

In the end, I'm pretty good and others are as well, but, all of us together couldn't carry John's cue case when he is in gear.

It's really embarrassing how some of the, so-called "players" on here act.


I knew a fellow that thought he was a good boxer because he was in a position to befriend a lot of "professional boxers". It cost him azzwhippens till he realized he wasn't what he thought/wished he was.

Do you know anyone like the "wannabe" boxer in the pool world?

Actually, while loathe to drag the balls repeatedly from the other end of a Ďball-returní table, since Iím finding it very difficult to reliably get a truly tight rack from the foot-spot on cloth with any significant wear, will try it and see if the pack breaks out better.

Did you read the last issue if billiards digest? The editor throws down on this forum without really calling it out by name--but he has a colorful description for the naysayers.
Then there is the excellent article about John and his quest and the triumph.

The most astonishing sidebar is the one that lists all of johns runs by date, how many, and how often, during his quest to break Mosconi. His 300s and 400s in that short period of time of legendary in itself. And some of those are already on YouTube.

Yes, it was a good read. And yes, he hammered "x" site....lol...

I'm really surprised sometimes at the stuff I see posted on here.

AZB isn't the first, second or even third choice I would recommend to a newb. Why? Well, not because there aren't experienced players or even a few good instructors here but, because it's so hard to swim through all the BS to get to the few bits of badly needed advice.

^^^^^ is a huge problem for a true newb because a true newb doesn't know the garbage from the goods on here.

I didn’t read it and in fact let my subscription lapse sometime ago after several decades as a subscriber.

Nobody here hates JS. And except for a couple of hard cases I’d say most here believe records were made to be broken. But seeing an unedited video would be nice though even me, a dyed-in-the-wool 14.1 fan, is starting to lose interest.

Talk about not striking while the iron is hot...
