Im not sure you know much about pool or records but I certainly do and I know all of them concerning 14.1. So here's my question to you and all others once again and again and again and again and so on.
Just what exact record did John set?
The highest exhibition run is 768 by ”Babe” Cranfield on a 9 ft. Table
Mosconi 526 on a 8ft table in an exhibition vs. An opponent.
I geuss maybe 626 with an edited video without the 1st 200 balls on the edited video on a doctored table by John Schmidt
The word on Azb street is that the 768 was a practice session or at least a high run attempt with only a racker involved. Is this so? Just what I remember reading, so it wouldn’t be an exhibition by the definition we’ve been going by round here. I think it’s awesome and should have been “the record” all this time no matter where it went down as long as there was some kind of proof.
The 526 is a BCA record from what I gather and if they say they have a new record then it is what it is. It wasn’t originally specified as the highest run starting with an opponent on an 8’ table so those parameters weren’t necessary to establish a new record.
It’s all just splitting hairs though. It’s a great run to me, just like every 100+ run ever made.
