Classy- like a real “Pro”, if there were such a thing.

Touche!, tj
'IF', should not have been a two letter word. There are still real "Pro's" out there, just harder to find, as they keep low profiles. Picture in your mind Willie Mosconi types vs JS types.
Later....

To be fair, there are people on this (and most forums) that live to stir the $hit. Trolls. And some pro's tired easily of that foolishness. (Just like many non-pro's) Most people who stay on a forum any amount of time understand that's part of the deal. Many of the pro's had little-to-no computer/internet experience, so dealing with that wasn't anything they signed up for, so's to speak.

Some posted in a way that encouraged it. Fair game, at that point.

In the Facebook environment, they can control the trolling. For better or worse.


Trolls are everywhere.

They exist in real life and if you get out of line with some of them they will clean your clock. So it's unrealistic to think you can come here and not have someone try and shark or crack wise about you, disagree with you, or even insult you. No different than in real life.

Whether it's a biker bar or pool room or country club, if you can't adjust and try and fit in with the locals you shouldn't walk in in the first place.

I've managed to stay employed due to my proficiency within my field for the during of my adult life. There are countless forums that discuss that subject matter. I purposely do not take part in any of them.

Being a professional "subject matter expert" on a forum filled with self proclaimed subject matter experts, simply isn't worth the headaches.

There are maybe 7 people on this planet whose lives will change if we suddenly find the whole JS626 was faked in the same remote soundsrage used to fake the moon landings...or if it is somehow verified beyond reasonable doubt.

I am not one of those people. I am only &ere to poke holes is the nonsense conspiracy theories. If this thread was about chem trails or dogmen or bigfoot (assuming there are members who have a long standing grudge with bigfoot) it would be more or less the same to me.

While not innacurate, generally...sport is somewhat unique in that one's knowledge can far exceed his execution ability.

Fair enough... However that really doesn't change the situation though.

If you have done something a certain way, and have had measurable success doing so, (aka: pro's insight) but are continually subjected to contradictory self proclaimed insight by those who have only their opinion backing them. ....it wears on you.

It's generally accepted that a coach knows more than player, but simply doesn't want to and/or can't walk the walk.

I'm not excusing it. I'm explaining one potential (and likely) reason many pro's don't wish to spend time here.

nope

He’s someone with a life time of knowledge and credibility in the game and trusted more then you .. a doughnut head that spends his days *****ing on a pool forum.

Actually he ran 311 while u were chattin with yer facebook buddies on how to polish a turd chopped video and respond to people who are genuine. So I put Wrlpro way ahead on the list of people I would trust vs the likes of u trob and yer facebook pal j.s. Yer facebook buddy/hero j.s and u - do indeed have some trob.

That’s not what I meant. The table John played on and every table he has ever set out to run high runs on has been far from non standard. Every table has been altered. How about just set up a new factory specs table and a brand new set of balls and start running balls without any changes like shaved slate at the pockets,760 Simonis, heaters under the slate, vacuuming and cleaning the felt constantly after a run has started and polishing the balls once a run has started. The soft pocket facings, short cut cushions to make the pockets bigger are non standard also.
If any of you don’t think the table specs make a difference than why has John been playing on Diamonds for 20+ years and never broke 300 not once. But he has 8 million runs over 300 in circus tables. Also all the 14.1 challenges at Derby City and the SBE many great players struggle to put up large high runs..
Now try to stay on track now with what I wrote hear.

They will ask any question they can think of regarding small details or table specs Bobbie - they seem genuine - but the reality is their goal here is to distract or derail the conversation about why there is no unedited video available for the people to see and or purchase, these members are troll's of az.

I sea'

Since there is a large contingent here who insists on educated pool people to verify that JS actually did this feat, and apparently Bob Jewett isn't considered to be "expert" enough...could we also expect that some equivalent sort of expert testimony be presented verifying these "circus tables"? Beyond your say-so, I mean...

Not going into yer circus table rabbit hole - but if bca or j.s. ever do release unedited video of their grandiose claim - there are several well respected forum members who's opinion I would trust. If they (bca/j.s. crew) allow a professional 14.1 player like Lou Figueroa, to see unedited proof - and Lou says it's legit -then that's good enough for me - i have competed against Lou, found him to be a man of integrity j.s., bca, and predator cues have put the buggy before the horse in relation to giving j.s. all these free press accolades - he probly does not deserve. Also I think Fatboy is honest individual (who has all the geek squad equipment to verify their 'claim'). As for yer buddy Bob Jewett while he is recognizes as a student of the game - he is good pals with j.s - so ya that wouldn't work at all? I just read at the end of one of Bob's posts on this thread he stated "its fun to make things up" need I say more? Those who think promoting fake news regarding Mosconi's 526 being surpassed is funny or that they do it just cause they can - have a big surprise coming to em.

captured on film

They seem to be using it on their company website. From Predators website:

"JOHN "MR. 600" SCHMIDT
Began playing with Predator in: 2018

Born: April 12, 1973

Resides: Hesperia, CA

Hometown: Keokuk, IA

{snipped tournaments and titles for brevity}

Special Accomplishments:
Highest 14.1 Run captured on film, 626 balls
Played on 2 Mosconi Cup Teams
Highest run on Diamond, 294 balls
Currently only living player with 7 runs of 400+ and 131 runs over 200 at straight pool"

https://www.predatorcues.com/usa/pro-team/john-schmidt.html

No photo ops or such, regarding the run. There is a video there, looking like an interview, which I cannot watch as I'm at work. But they are out there in the public, standing behind him, on their official company site.

I noticed u never said captured on film - with unedited footage - BIG DIFFERENCE desk job clerk - of the bca fake news dept. But yea there is a video there looking LIKE an interview. Just my view from the outer perimeter. Did they (crooked powers hiding the mystery 626 video) give u a free carbon fibre shaft for yer fake news corroboration?

Beyond your say-so, I mean...

educated pool people - the word pool actually means to gamble. Those educated people ARE indeed gambling if their claim is that Mosconi's run has been surpassed - without unedited video proof. Are the two fellas at bca experts = NO. Do I think Bob Jewett is world class in Pocket Billiard discipline of 14.1 = NO. Do I think he has ever run a century in major tournament competition = no. Is Bob the only official adjudicator of the j.s./bca new record claim = NO. Do I think my opinion matters more than anyone else who practices 14.1 avidly = no, do I consider myself to be at the expert level in Straight Pool = Yes. I am still learning about the game - and unfortunately it's relation to political scandals involving Mosconi's 70+ yr old official 526. Are there political sponsorships available for those who claim to have run more than Mosconi = evidently answer here is Yes - i.e. Hall Of Fame corruption/ new cue sponsors. For any top 14.1 players out there seriously considering recording some runs and trying to surpass Mosconi's great achievement of 526. Here are the steps for success - 1st you'll need to show unedited video proof (not currently available with the bca's new claim after two years :-o, 2nd get past the dreaded skid (clean dry well insulated environment), 3rd plenty of heart, and 4th perseverance. Good Day - to those who are not dishonest and or helping the spread of fake news.

hmm

Or even close. But they have the next best thing: a public forum on which they can try to trash anybody else's success - apparently without realizing the damage they're doing to their own images in the process.

pj
chgo

How is a chopped video (that is being highly questioned from many) considered to be a success? But yea I can tell yer uh bit nervous p.j. If standing up for the truth has a negative impact on ones public image - count me in. Plus if I have zero friends within the deep state - that is even better.

hokey pokey

Oh, well. Fooled again. I still think you were using magnets, though. That curving cue ball was the result of a switch left on when it shouldn't have been.

Bob <-- nearly all magnets come from China now so it all fits together

u j.s.,and bca may continue to dew yer hokey pokey to Mosconi's official 526 - but ya'll will eventually turn yourselves around. Yes it would seem that the u,bca,and j.s. have left the light on for us to view the fake news - yer electric bill is off the charts - there will b a debt to pay. One thing is for sure a chopped video won't even light a spark at Mosconi's well documented 526 eh Bob the bureaucratic scholar. U should know it does not get my seal of approval - I'm not alone in this opinion either.
