I’ve never seen him do it or heard of it from anyone but you, who has been proven to be a non objective participant in this situation lol.

Xradarx - are you claiming to be Frank Alamanza? Also...can you actually play pool at all?




You know he played on a table with big 5” pockets?

I have not intimated anything that I recall.

In fact, just a bit back in this thread, I said something to the effect that I had absolutely no idea if there was any ball polishing going on during the 626. My recollection is that the issue was brought to a head by one stroke who specifically asked me about ball polishing but just as a general topic for discussion. Have I seen JS polish them up "often" during a run? Yes, and I seem to recall he and I had some interesting repartee about the subject back when it happened. Was it going on during the 626? No idea.

And we also really have no idea about cleaning of the balls during the 526 either.

He ran the 526 in just over two hours, around four balls a minute -- no time to polish the balls ;-)

Bringing it up in every thread that has to do with this run counts in my book, PR techniques. Casting shadows.

Which reminds me. Eyedea - even shadows have shadows. A very good song.

Do you consider wiping them down with a rag to be polishing? I guess technically he could have something on the rag though and we’d never know,

Well, like I said, I was responding to a query from one stroke.

If you want to talk about PR front loading we could try talking about press releases, BCA certification, congratulations from other pros, and a promo video before seeing the actual run. Personally, I'd like to watch the movie itself before voting it an Oscar for best picture.

As you've point out, wiping them down with a rag is problematic because there's no way of knowing what's on the rag. I know DH has voiced a problem with opponents using a rag.

Doug Desmond's gloves. He touched every ball racked from start to finish. Just another innocent bystander, not. I didn't see his gloves listed in the sponsor's list.

Fair enough. I’d also like to see. If we say it often, and loudly enough, it just might happen.

I thought that 2 hour-ish time was the portion after the exhibition match ended and he was already at 150 or 200.

No, according to his autobiography: "I was playing a two-hundred-point match against an amateur by the name of Earl Bruney in the East High Billiard Club. He made three balls off the break, them I ran two hundred and just kept going. The run took two hours and ten minutes, which means that over that span I averaged four balls a minute."

If you figure in time to collect the balls and rack them almost 40 times he might have been closer to five balls a minute.

Come on JJ, you know he don't have any of those.


I knew a fellow that thought he was a good boxer because he was in a position to befriend a lot of "professional boxers". It cost him azzwhippens till he realized he wasn't what he thought/wished he was.

Do you know anyone like the "wannabe" boxer in the pool world?

Actually, there may be something to that. The common cliche ‘color blind’, is a much more complicated/multi-faceted array of specific vision impairments than is generally appreciated.
The way a ball’s color may merge with it’s cloth background might possible effect a shooter’s skill/ability & results (?).
