Name calling won't get you back slappers anywhere with the pocket pool players of the country. They spend an enormous amount of money with the billiard associations of the earth and their opinions will have an effect on the decision makers. None of you have seen any evidence of the 626 run by JS as of yet. Reading from HyperTexts, Michael Eufemia pocketed 626 balls unofficially. Tom Parker pocketed 642 balls unofficially. Arthur Babe Cranfield pocketed 768 balls in a practice session. They all probably would like to have their names added to the record book too.
Opinions are like the old saying goes, everyone has one. The preceding opinion is mine and is subject to change when any of the above is accepted and certified.

I think we can assign the blame to his parents for that one. Or maybe his grandparents. They all should have started earlier.

The HyperTexts guy who posted a bunch of pool records means well and is enthusiastic, but accuracy does not seem to be his primary goal. And you may want to work on your spelling.

In that case, you may want to correct the number of balls that Eufemia claimed to have run.

Hyper Texts Eufemia - 06-07-2019, 03:42 PM

Michael Eufemia, straight pool, 626 balls, unofficial, may not have be witnessed by other individuals from beginning to end (but he was said to run 200 balls nearly every night!) copied and pasted directly from HyperTexts. No further correction necessary.

Guinness says it was 625....Ill bet on Guinness....
...even though they may have been drinking their own product at time of entry....

If pool players had to have knowledge of geometry and physics before talking about geometry and physics, all of the aiming threads would disappear.

Here is a brief excerpt from a manuscript that Mike Eufemia wrote about how to play pool. The book was never published but the manuscript is fairly easy to find in photocopy. I think you will find a difference between what you wrote above and what Eufemia claimed.

I tend to trust Guinness...they got serious fact checkers...
...but I trust David Bond even more

Bob Jewitt....I’d bet a lot on his word also

Maybe there was some confusion between the Logan Billiard Academy, where Eufemia claimed his run of 625 occurred, and the Chicago Billiard Museum.

In a brief web search, I could not find any connection between Eufemia's run and Chicago, but the Chicago Billiard Museum site is gone.
