Funny how things happen sometimes.
If George hadnt stayed behind, Basil wouldn't have played, and his son probably would have never contacted me about the match, and I would have never looked up this article, and we wouldn't be having this conversation.

It's George

I'm really glad you posted that article. I grew up in Amityville, New York and used to get haircuts from Basil. He was the barber and ran a combination barber shop/pool hall by me the 60's and 70's. I was a little young but played a few racks there with my older brother.

I think this was the record at the time for tournament play. There were also Championship challenge matches through the 1950s (or so). In a 1954 challenge match between Mosconi and tournament runner-up Joe Procita, they played to 2400 points in blocks of 150 points. If I decipher Charlie Ursitti's info correctly, Mosconi had two runs of 150 (unfinished) in that match. They were not continuing runs across blocks in that match, apparently. Those were the first WC runs of 150 I could find looking through Ursitti's records.

The first tournament I could find with matches to 150 was the 1949 WC that was a double round robin with Mosconi, Caras, Crane and Ponzi. Crane had the high run of 82.

Everyone wants to argue who is the best. Truth is without "old" school there is no "new" school.
