Jay Helfert said he had been to the room mosconi set his record at 5 or so years later and that the pockets were not easy and rejected balls. So there is at least one first hand account that the pockets were not easy.What is wrong with you, back over 50 years ago all the tables had bucket pockets.
The mosconi table had bucket pockets so why should anyone trying to break the
run record not use the same size buckets that mosconi did. That table that Shaw broke
the record on was not rigged, ask Earl & Shane. The run was approved as was the table,
now get a life and move on!!!!!!!!!!!!!
