Here is the facts.Check out the shot at 21:28 https://youtu.be/lf9hRHdA0A8 . The 7 ball moves when he places his bridge hand down on the table. All straight pool events are all ball fouls and always have been with NO exception so high runs are the same rule. I kind of know this from 30+ years of playing straight pool and playing in the World Championships quite a few times.

So to be clear to everyone John made 434 balls in a row but he DID NOT run 434 balls in a row. His run 100% stopped when he fouled the 7 ball.That's the rule and that's the outcome. His run started again with the next break ball in the next rack. So his run is -122 for a total of 312 for his run NOT 434. If John disputes this or if John claims that his 434 is legitimate than he is clearly cheating. Also to note at 1 point he left the cueball just outside the rack instead of inside the rack and he picked the cue ball up and shot behind the headstring. Another no-no.

if john breaks the record and it's squeaky clean, on video, will you acknowledge him as the straight pool high run record holder?

There definitely appears to be a slight wobble of the 7 ball to the left and then back to the right, presumably from the cue very gently touching it. I didn't see it on first viewing either, had to watch a few times.

Oh wow! I'm surprised I didn't see it on first viewing. And as suggested above I used my desktop this time.

I'm still wonder what the monetary benefit is. Has someone offered cash for a new record?
I'd probably buy a DVD of it but I'm one of a limited audience.
Jay Helfert did offer 10k, years ago, but with some stipulations.

I don't know if the table John plays on will qualify since he's specifying "moderately tough pockets".
Just one guy's opinion but, he should scrap that requirement.

John tends to play on easy equipment, and honestly the record is still valid on 5 inch pockets.
If Jay is betting dvd/stream sales will top $10,000, I think those sales will be exactly the same
regardless of the pocket cut.

Bobby, do you have a timestamp for this one? If it really was outside the rack that would be pretty egregious.

Mosconi said his 526 took 2 hours and 10 minutes. That's an average of 4.0 balls per minute.

Schmidt often plays at about that same pace. His 434 took about 2 hours 5 minutes, or 3.5 balls per minute. He averaged well over 4 balls/min. for the first 14 racks, then a bit under 3 balls/min. for the last 17 racks.

So even if John runs 600, I don't think it will take anywhere near 5 hours unless he takes an extended break (timeout) somewhere along the way.

Are you aloud to take a break during this run in straight pool or do you have to steady play.

John has said that he just free-wheels through the first couple of hundred (to save energy) and then gets serious. I wish I could free-wheel through a couple of hundred.

And the speed record (so far as I know) is 150 (and out) by Lou Butera in a tournament match in 21 minutes, which would be an hour and 14 minutes for 527.

I think it's entirely reasonable to take a potty break during the run.

In the old days there were some matches in which they would play a single very long game, maybe to 1500. When the session target was reached, say one player got to a total of 300, he would run out the rack to the break shot, the cue ball and the break shot would be marked, and the position would be restored at the start of the next session.

The ball-mark method was used at the Derby City 14.1 when a player was called to some other match during a run.

If Machinegun started quick like Schmitty, he would be even quicker....
...at his House of Champions he was clocked running a 100 in ten minutes...
...racking included.
