John's on a good run right now -- 210 and on a timeout to clean the balls and table.

An interesting side note. They did the same thing after John passed the first hundred. At 112, the racker marked the CB and OB with chalks. He then placed the balls back on the table near the chalks, for John to put in their correct places while he (the racker) racked the balls. But John put the CB back on the wrong side of the chalk and played it that way.

[The mistake was not really advantageous.]

And it's underway again.

Edit -- now at 266 (more than halfway "there")

And John has now crossed the two-thirds "there" mark. Playing rack 26.

Day 15 only 2 runs over 100. A run of 150 and oh yeah a pedestrian run of 390. I cannot express in words the excitement and amazement of watching this phenomenal player achieve this run. It was ended by a backcut cross table into the side with 3 balls on the table. Position was automatic and he surely would have gotten on the next breakball with a great chance to move into the 400's. Tomorrow the stream starts at 2 Az time. Thursday Friday and Saturday will start at noon with a schedule of 4 hours of play.Sunday is a holy day because it is the finals of the Masters, there will be no play. Tune in you you won't want to miss it.

John´s stamina is unbelievable!
Also John is not 20 year old anymore. I was like that when I was young. Can´t do that kind hours anymore. Focusing such a long times to 14.1 is unreal. It is exhausting to put big numbers.
Hats Off!!

John is a stamina machine. I bet 99% of pro players would lose their minds playing that much straight pool.

I was there for the 390. It takes some stamina to just watch.

As for marking the ball positions with chalks.... There are two kinds of asymmetrical purpose-made ball markers available at the table. They prevent errors on replacement. I don't know why they are not being used.

In one of the replacements in the 390 run, the CB was placed on the wrong side of the chalk, thereby making it more than 3" from where it should have been. If John had gone on to beat the 526 in that run, no telling how many asterisks it would have had.

Also, I noticed a foul in another run, with the cue stick bumping a nearby ball on the follow-through. John continued with the run. Then I noticed that the Facebook chat listing of his high runs for each day and the equipment he is using says he is playing cue-ball fouls only. If he does exceed 526, I hope he commits no such non-CB "fouls" in that run.

Another thought, Bob. Yesterday (or the day before?), John just barely grazed the corner ball on a break shot, without a lot of disturbance to the rack, and the CB went pretty far uptable. Naturally, he spent a decent amount of time looking at possibilities for making a ball out of the rack. The racker, and someone who looked from the rear like you, also went to the table looking at possibilities. I do not know whether any advice was given to John. The WPA rules do permit limited coaching, but the coach is not allowed to approach the table.

Do you think that if John were to act on advice given by someone else and make the ensuing shot, that it would taint a record run?

Probably. No one knows whether advice was shouted out during the current record run, but I imagine none was taken.

April 12th John's birthday. Two runs over 100 with the high of 235. That is the tenth run over 200. Tomorrow play will start around 2:30 or 3:00. John has 3 maybe 4 more days left at BullShooters.
