The pockets were huge when mosconi ran 526, so if you would be trying to break his record
you would what the huge pockets too! John breaks the record with big pockets, so Jayson gets
the chance with big pockets too! That is how I see it.

To be clear, and as I’ve stated earlier, I don’t actually care about the table when it comes to record setting exhibition runs. There is no standard. There never has been a standard. JS (Schmidt) was the record holder. Now, JS (Shaw) is the record holder.

However, this photo put any nonsense of gaff table to sleep as far as I’m concerned. The photo is taken at an angle with the throat of the pocket closer to the camera, meaning it will appear slightly larger than the mouth, giving even more credence to my pink lines.

Even without my pink line, you can quite clearly see the throat is narrower than the mouth.

If you was smart enough to enlarge even that picture you'd see that even the picture angle can't change the fact that the pocket castings won't even cover up the wide throat of the pocket, the castings ears stick out past the throat of the rails, and NO GC pocket castings protrude past the ends of the rail throats, except on THIS table!!
Why do you think there's never been a picture of the pocket with 2 balls side by side in the pocket posted up?

JS would run a 1,000 balls on this circus table😅🤣😂

Only thing left to ask...what or who comes next?
Does the event go on?
Will Ruslan still come again to try to break the new high run?
What is up with the other players in line?
Or will even Shaw go for even a higher run?

I understand that everybody is over the moon about Jayson's achievement, but records are there to be broken :)

As long as you accept the fact that this is a gaffed table, specially built pockets with the intent to take in balls that would be missed on any other stock GC, who cares right, you people are so gullible😅🤣🤣 but yes, Jayson did run 714 balls, even if he DID get some help from the circus pockets, put an asterisk mark next to his record run indicating it was set on a circus pool table😉

Even if you have to cheat to break them, who really cares, its just pool anyway, its not like ROCKET SCIENCE!!!

I think the way you interact on here about this is 100% of the reason that such a picture has not been posted. You made it too juicy to just sit back and say nothing, right or wrong.

I don’t think of it as a huge deal, some iffy shots went in but they go in on valleys too and probably a few other tables with generous pockets.

I don’t remember the Legends crew ever stating it was a stock GC but it’s possible I missed something. They said it’s the table and they’re fine with it, earl didn’t go off about it as far as I know and he seems like someone who would based off past comments about respecting the game.

Keep believing I'm the reason why no picture has been posted! The reason is the truth is in the picture, and they DID claim this table had STOCK factory pockets, and that's a damn lie!

ok, one more time. It's not ROCKET SCIENCE is idiom for "it's not difficult". So you get points for trying, this is how one learns to use idioms correctly. But nobody in this thread thinks that pool is easy so you are using this idiom in a wrong way.

But keep trying and you'll eventually get there. This is how learning works.

Once you reach the idiom comprehension level of an 11 year old, you'll know how to use it correctly. (Idioms are not meant to be used literally. Yes pool is not rocket science. So is brain surgery or heart surgery on newborns. Still not easy tasks.)

I highly doubt John Schmidt could top his 626. But I would like to see him try. (John Schmidt would run 1000 once every 320 years going for it 8 hours a day and I don't think he has it in him to even give it 2 more months trying full time. But probability calculation seems to be also over your head. So I doubt you'll get my arguments.)
JS is not clear enough for an acronym, since I think that 1000 is something that Jayson Shaw cold break one day

They were open about the table having the rails redone, which is a thing that needs to happen sometimes - we all know that. But that gets tricky - is that stock? If they say yes, half the crowd will rip into them accusing them of lying. If they say it's not stock, the other half of the crowd starts accusing them of setting up a gaffe table that's been Frankensteined to accept any ball aimed within 2 feet of the pocket.

I'm guessing Bobby just said "F it" and moved on with the issue, deciding not to post photos and stir up the crazies even further.

The problem is that RKC won't approve of any table set up unless it was done by RKC, and even then, I'm still not sure he'd approve of it. It just doesn't matter at a certain point and you have move on and try and let Jayson's run speak for itself.

I understand not wanting to post a bunch of photos that probably don't even represent the pockets accurately, just to let the nutjobs run wild with it. I would post the photos, but I'm not running this and I do understand not wanting to post the photos. In a perfect world, they can. We do not live (and certainly do not post) in a perfect world.

Cue it up podcast shows the table. Jayson puts 2 balls in the pocket and calls them buckets and shows the binder style rings used for the rack.
