I went to watch John's attempts four times, three in Monterey and once in Phoenix. I witnessed the 390 and the 420 completely and in person. Based on the very high percentage John had getting into the next rack and the months he spent in the attempt, he was actually odds-on to break Mosconi's record.

There was no need to fake anything since he was capable of actually breaking the record and I'm confident that he did.

The whole idea of a faked video is asinine. I get that the one dude that likes brining it up is obviously trolling but do any real people actually think it’s possible? I’ll take JS at his word, with or without video and signed this and that...but I wanna see it because I like high runs and apparently this one is the highest visible.

Yeah, I think making 626 balls in less than four hours is a lot of balls.

How long do you reckon it should take a feller to make 626 balls?

Thirty seconds per ball.

John played twice that fast in his high-run attempts until he got past a couple hundred.

From my thread on John's run of 434:
  • ■ Pace of play -- From striking the first break shot to pocketing the 434th ball (i.e., excluding racking for Rack 32 and the final failed break shot), the elapsed time was about 2 hours 5Ĺ minutes. This is just over 4 minutes per rack, or 3Ĺ balls per minute or 17.3 sec. per ball. The first 14 racks averaged 3.0 minutes per rack; the last 17 racks averaged 4.9 minutes per rack. The elapsed time included racking and one timeout of about 2ľ minutes in Rack 31.

It should take them about four hours or preferably less.

In one match I remember well, Thorsten Hohmann ran 100 (and out) in 26 minutes. At that pace he would run 626 in about 2 hours and 45 minutes.

Just to show you how fast Mosconi was, according to his autobiography he made his record run in two hours and ten minutes -- four balls a minute.

Having seen him run 100, in person, several times, and with all those people watching in Springfield, yes.
