Smorg is giving St Peter the 7!
John has no issue with Jayson, the issue is with Bobby who ran the event. He setup this event for the sole purpose of beating John.
I don't think Jayson has a big issue with John either but he did take a couple of digs at him on the recent Cue It Up podcast. Claimed Johns table had a heater under it. That was the first time I had heard that.
I give more credit to John for the breaking the record than I do to Jayson. Being the first to do it paves the way for all the others. I don't think Jaysons record will stand as long as Johns.
john had tried a heater under his table according to his own statements. However, I don't think the heater suited him as it wasn't a heated table, just a heater under it that would probably lead to uneven heat. Might have something to do with that crazy roll of a cue ball that ended one of his promising earlier runs.
Funny thing, john made lots of jokes about what probably did help him a bit. He had been drinking a stimulant every day before starting. That day and for a day or two before he had swapped to a drink with a large amount of B-12 in it. Longer term B-12 gives you energy as most of us know. What isn't as well known is that short term, for maybe a day, it serves as a mild tranquilizer. I knew a man that was stopping his own race horses for over a year giving them B-12 the morning of the race. Three days before and they are ready to race, B-12 the day of the race and they came out flatfooted. Likewise, someone I knew getting B-12 shots slept the day away afterwards. The B-12, especially instead of a stimulant, might have been exactly what john needed to get him past the nerves as he neared Mosconi's record.
