• Rebco Pocket Billiard Table 4-1/2 x 9
• Drop Pockets - No Ball Return
• Simonis 760 Tournament Cloth Green
• 5-inch Corner Pockets
• 5-1/2 inch Side Pockets
• Sardo Rack
• Super Aramith Pro Belgian Billiard Balls
• Predator P3 Red Butt
• Predator Revo 12.4mm Carbon Composite Shaft
• 19.5 oz and 58 inches
• Techno Dud Tip by Outsville
• Taom Pyro Blue Chalk
• Predator Second Skin Billiard Glove
• Predator Urbain 3x5 Hard Case Red

Just show up and shoot towards a drop pocket. No such thing as a near miss. There are several existing video of JS playing on the exact same table from May 8, 2019 to May 26, 2019. Just nothing from the same table on May 27, 2019. Try setting a ball against any corner pocket opening with 40% ball exposed and try to keep it from falling into the pocket. Mosconi playing on this table would probably still be shooting on the great pool table in the skies.

So I’m guessing you don’t know what table Willie made the 526 on?

So a smaller table with bigger pockets is harder? Interesting.

So was the 526 table drop or ball return?

There is an account of Mosconi practicing on table in his hotel room just prior to a match with Fats.

Charlie Ursittti was racking (and it would be highly improbable that there was a ball polisher in the room). But anywhos, Charlie is racking and Mosconi runs close to 600, breaks the balls wide open and lays down his cue saying something like: See, running 600 is no big deal.

No big deal to Willie Mosconi.

From everything I've read he was ho humm about everything he did he certainly never sat down to make a high run as a point his run just happened and documented because someone decided to make it a big deal , god knows how many he could have run if he actually cared ,

... At the DCC they clean the balls late at night/early morning. ...
Well, for the 14.1 challenge at DCC the balls were cleaned several times per day and whenever a player asked for clean balls at the start of a set of turns.

Yes, for the 14.1 Challenge that was true.

But I was talking about the tournament at large.

526 Table Size

The nominal size of a table (expressed in feet) is 8'' more than the length of its playing area. The advertised size (or quoted size) of a standard pool table is exactly equal to its nominal size, except in two cases:
• A standard 7' table has a true nominal size of 7' 2'' corresponding to a playbed length of 78'' (not 76'' ).
• An 8½' table has a nominal size of 8' 4'' corresponding to a playing area 92'' long (not 94'' ). Tables of that unusual size are also referred to as oversize 8 foot tables (or even 8 foot tables, which they're not).

4'x8' tables was the common size table for the home player.
Ref: 8-1/2' table above. These were generally known as 4-1/2'x8' oversize tables common to all businesses. The between the rail nose measurements were 46"x92" playing surface. There were thousands around the country. Most joints had one or more and some pool parlors had many of them. These tables were available from the 20s to well into the 90s, before they began to give way to the competition 4-1/2'x9' with 50"x100" playing surfaces and to the 5'x10' tables.
The game hasn't changed, only the players and the tables. Even the rules to play by have not changed either!

Don't let your bark be bigger than your stroke.

If I had plenty of money, I would probably lose more often.

Your arguments have fallen on deaf ears, No? Only water left to talk about?
About to turn spigot off?

Just saying. Every player on the planet knows what you posted.

Yup, a 9 foot table is bigger than an 8 foot table.

We really should look into the whole cloth color aspect of this next. Even if they were both green were they the same shade of green?

And if 626 was on blue I suspect the whole thing is null and void.

By way of comparison -- The playing surfaces on Diamond's 3 table sizes move in equal steps -- 40x80, 45x90, 50x100. And the exterior dimensions for all of them are 14" wider and 14" longer than the playing surfaces.

Mosconi set the record on a 4x8 table with 5 and 1/4 inch corner pockets.

which is precisely why I think the 526 is BS too. I have the record for most consecutive made 3 pointers from NBA range in history...oh I mean the hoop was bigger, but thats cool right? Gtfo. In NO other sport would we think this was okay.

Man this is still going on lol...

Lou - have you ever seen John polish balls during a run? You have mentioned it many times now and have intimated that he polishes them in a machine before every break shot so they will spread better, thus cheating. I’ve never seen him do it or heard of it from anyone but you, who has been proven to be a non objective participant in this situation lol.

Xradarx - are you claiming to be Frank Alamanza? Also...can you actually play pool at all?


Keep'em guessing! I do know, but I'm not, along came jones, slow walking jones, slow talking jones, telling here or anywhere.

You know he played on a table with big 5” pockets?

No, I'm not Frank Almanza. Yes, I can play pool. Take notice of 'xradarx'. I play between the 'x'es. Center of object ball to center of the pocket. Don't give one damn about the size of the pockets. Just arguing to be arguing. Will play nice if treated likewise. xradarx

Nah you don’t get to be reasonable now, you’re branded...enemy of the state. I’m going to go get some chipotle for breakfast and think on your hypocrisy. Then I will try to break my juggling record in 1 minute.
