Eagle Eye Takes Aim at 14.1 High Runs

And there are reports from someone who seems to have been there that it was a hard shot on the six ball.
Mosconi described it as :
"
On March 19, in Springfield, Ohio, I ran 526 balls, a record that still stands. 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, then 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. I finally missed a difficult cut shot, but by that time I was weary; it was almost a relief to have it come to an end."

There are no rules. JS proved that beyond a doubt. Gimmicked everything involved. Been given a 2-1/2 year free pass. Same professors of
faith for one player, but not for any others, who just went to a venue and played what was there.
Just saying!...
I've said my piece. Call me whomever you wish.

I wonder if he had any circus shots during that run. I've never actually heard the run characterized in any way, which makes me think it was the usual "so easy anybody could have done it" kind of exhibition.
