We offered a format to Charlie that we thought would work for our location, they went with it. Will it be for everyone, no. It happens if people find value in it, or it doesn't.

Why does there have to be so much negativity on this site? Is that what we should be concentrating on? There is only a couple thing you can offer to a large group of people that will please everyone. Free and money! Not too sure if one of those wouldn't make someone mad, these days. Should we just not do anything in fear of pleasing the AZ community?

Speaking of this community, it use to be a great way to share ideas and learn from one another. Now it seems like a bunch of trolls trying to one-up each other, and/ or trying to sell you something.

There have been tons of things, done wrong, by a lot of people throughout the years. Those things have held American pool back. You learn from it and move on. Bringing it up over and over again does no good. Time to move forward! Become the solution, not the problem.

And even worse, is the new player that comes to this site to try and learn about this wonderful sport. Only to find out........
Does breaking the record by exactly 100 balls make you question the serendipity of it all? Or your good with the coincidence?

No serendipity involved. 18 month purposeful dedication to an end result. Finally caught the car, but doesn't know what to do with it.

I've got an idea. I'll see if any of them want to play pool. That should scare them off!
more jokes, the real joke is u believed what you heard - without seeing evidence. It's a known fact that Schmidt will cheat or be dishonest - if he tinks there is a buck or two in it. Again Jay make all the wise cracks u care to, but u r too intelligent to believe - without first seeing proof - but yet u did. This speaks volumes to me bout your character, the story I had bout the 93 open did not involve me - u probly will never get to hear. Even you agree that their phony table privatized' video marketing could have been handled different. They needed one more accolade to print while pushing him through the hall of fame - they (powers at b) chose to target the great Mosconi's record - this is a shame. If the little green men landed u would want them to play dennis first i think. Defeating the unknown has to do with honesty and heart - not making jokes about drive by media. Drive by media mob is not a joke, neither is sanded slate phony tables and corrupt people trying to make a bum look as if he has class.

Then that leaves coincidence. That's an uncomfortable wool sweater we're being asked to wear.

Your a very poly tickly' correct person, have you seen the little piggies in their starched white shirts? Table was modified (like the table in Virginia where he ran his 403 more than likely). Always have clean shirts - to play around in. I defeated him for the cash - and am winner on him playing Straight pool - challenge match and tournaments - on a non- modified Diamond real professional table - that is good enough for me. I can assure you when a player delivers heavy heat in his direction - he crumbles and while he does have the talent - he lacks the right temperament to be a champ. jmho

Danny Harriman...If you're so much better than JS, why don't you just phoney up a table for you, and BEAT HIS RECORD. Should be easy since you're so much better than him (in your mind)! BTW, good luck with that task! Also, I'm no fanboy of JS, so I have no dog in this fight! I do, however, respect the accomplishment.

I don't really feel like getting some gaffed up table (as he did - rebco? 5" sanded slate pockets) I know yer some sort of scholar instructor - I have nothing to learn from political puppets scholars. There really should have been a standard set long ago (pockets size for professional players). In Mosconi's time they actually never competed on nine' tables, if I ever do start recording my runs - it will be on a Brunswick Arcade 5x10. There will not be any sanded slate pockets or goofy generic off brand gaffed up table, I will be going after Crane's record. I will post a small video of it and then sell it to the public in a more normal marketing plan. There will not be any need to worry about smokey mirror tricks and goofy tables - the run will be legit. I have seen how corrupt any sports marketing agency can become when they are trying to promote their products. I promise john cue' public if they would have inspected the table in Virginia where he ran his 403 they would call him Mr. cheater. Guiness book of world records does not recognize it as a new world record - that is good enough for me. Since there seems to be no standard as far as pocket spec's - I could get a goofy 5" + pocket table and possibly surpass it but that ain't my style. If u don't like schmidt than at least you have some sense.

According to Mosconi's autobiography, the BCA changed the standard for championship play from 10-footers to 9-footers in Aug. 1949. Willie and everyone else playing the championships from 1950 on used 9-footers. Willie's championships were pretty evenly split between the 1940's and 1950's.
