I feel any record attempt like what JS is doing should be squeaky clean and just like the DCC 14.1 Challenge comply with the all balls foul rule.

If it's good enough for the DCC 14.1 Challenge -- the closest formal competition to what he's doing -- it should be good enough for his attempts. It should also be noted that the DCC 14.1 Challenge is far from a pool event in a bar.

Wasnít Willies run on 4x8 and 5-1/4 inch pockets? I read Mosconi did it on this small table cuz it was the only Brunswick table avail for the exhibition. I think John Schmidts 434 is just as impressive as 526 on the smaller table. I also would be willing to bet (w odds) heíll break 500.

I wish him the best of luck. How high will he go?

It is supposed to be streamed live. Post a link here when it does.
I wonder if John will match Mosconi's table specs of a Brunswick 4'x8' table with 5.25 inch pockets and use similar cloth? If I had pockets like those, I could run 526 - reality = 74. Okay, maybe 62.

I think John has a good chance to break the record. First off, he has patience. It's incredibly difficult to run hundreds of balls only to be stymied by a bad roll or a misscue and etc. His break shots are superior to other top players I have seen. He wants it so bad he can smell it. He's come within a 130 balls or so and that's very close. Lastly, he gets great action on the balls in the rack when he goes into them.

I would like to think Mosconi played to play the game the best he could, he didn't play to beat a record.

That's around 5 hours without a mistake. I am guessing between 450 and 500.

The run ended at 379. He got himself a little too straight on the breakout ball and ended up having to go for a combo out of the stack. Awesome shooting though.
