No question what this guy liked to do in his spare time…
Walter Lindrum played English Billiards...a three ball variation on a 6x12.Just curious, if he made his mark in Billiards, why does this table have pockets on it?
Walter was one of the players who forced the rules of various cue sports to be changed. Jake Shaefer Sr. and some others did that for carom billiards. Corey Deuel did that for nine ball.Walter Lindrum played English Billiards...a three ball variation on a 6x12.
He basically ruined the game...going to 4,,000 points, he was probably 1,000 better than any of his contemporaries.
The world championship was played one year on Janus, a fast cotton cloth...he had the world record run..high 3,000s
Next year they threw a heavy wool cloth with directional nap at him...he broke his own record.
