So, answer the question, is Mosconi's record "suspect" because of the big pockets? Nobody things so, but you believe we need a different standard for JS. Brilliant.
What is the current straight pool record on a Chinese 8 ball table?Mosconi, happened before I was born and I have no thoughts other than what it was to me growing up; a feat of seemingly incredible skill. Fast forward to now, I have a better view of things skill and craft as well as self promotion and adverteasing hype - as do today's jocks and craftsmen I might add.
And speaking of dead horses, 5" pockets are not an evolution. They veritably render the accomplishment, nothing but a hundred more.
Show me a 100 on a Chinese table. Show me 200 on a 9 foot Russian table cut to better facilitate shots down the rail. This is where current averages should be.
I haven't a clue. My numbers are arbitrary.
The pocket size argument is a strange one in a way. To scrubs like myself they definitely help to make a longer run strictly because they’re more forgiving of mistakes. Somewhere on my way to 30 balls I’ll shoot a ball to center pocket but hit somewhere funny and just barely get in.
For world class players they rarely use the extra space by accident, the larger pockets give options that would be physically impossible on tighter tables. They have 3 options instead of 1, and that allows for higher runs but only if you’re good enough to actually take advantage of it.
Is it you DH?
Mmm..Yes indeed. I’ve got pages and pages of verbiage from known entities, my navy buddy is currently running your words through a computer progrum, were at 68% surety right now. We just need a few more samples.
Please tell me:
If we’re about to play Rock/Paper/Scissors - we get ready to throw out our fists for the first round, I stop you all of a sudden. I ask “who do you like better, Chuck Norris or Clint Eastwood” - What am I going to throw? I have planted an unshakable seed at this point and know what you will throw, how will I counter?
What's so dishonest about my post?
i really don't care if it's a con job. Like I said before 5" pockets is a deal breaker for me. Anybody care what the record for slamming ping pong balls out the front door is? All the to and fro and still no concrete facts. It's a little too much like those CTE threads.
Sure is nitty in the future.
Me too...maybe if "The Rock" or George Plimpton" (bonus points if you get that reference) was one of the options
Sent from the future.
If you carefully read the previous posts in this thread -- all of them and don't just skim them -- clarity will be achieved.
Pool at 2x speed is still like watching paint dry. I understand why it could be questioned...because it's Hail Mary time in the Danny camp.I believe, I don't believe ad nauseum. No tanks.
Incidentally I accept your falling on legit. For me, the speed enhanced section needs closer scrutiny.
