At this point I think it is likely.

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.

Is a statement by a person who was present for the event considered to be evidence? If so, that was not the truth.

The guy who was racking and the text was "626 baby!" I had a further confirmation after they checked the count. (Previously a run of 421 that I was present for had been counted as 435 until the video was checked later. They were fully aware that a video count was needed.)

...and your point is?

The real takeaway is that for this exhibition Willy started with a setup ball in hand break shot.

Something that I thought you said he never did.

Now let's play devils advocate, say that he continued his run in the studio, until he pocketed 626 balls in a row.

Would you grant him a high run record?

I have to say that I fully think John is capable of running 626, but the fact that this run seems to only have been witnessed by one other person, was not streamed, and conveniently came the day after he discovered a "secret" of straight pool just does not sit 100% with me. If there is any cut or skip in the video, I would not allow the record. If he did it in front of an audience fine. But in front of 1 person and video released seemingly well after the fact? Not so sure of that to be frank.
