Yes he was joking and he said he would never withhold it because 99 percent support him (1 percent vocal haters)

It’s always the 1% isn’t it? Rich folk, bikers, and JS626 haters, are flat earthers in a 1% situation?

No, according to his autobiography: "I was playing a two-hundred-point match against an amateur by the name of Earl Bruney in the East High Billiard Club. He made three balls off the break, them I ran two hundred and just kept going. The run took two hours and ten minutes, which means that over that span I averaged four balls a minute."

If you figure in time to collect the balls and rack them almost 40 times he might have been closer to five balls a minute.

That's pretty fast if that's the case. Not that it's ever been a race.

where o' where is the unedited video

None of you seem to have any facts to back up your comments. Not enough of you to add up to a majority of supporters of this bs accord for js626 video. It will never override the negativity that it has already generated. At no time do all of you total up to more than 25% of AZB's on line activity. Just more non facts. I hope none of you fall off the edge and drown in internet outer space. Bye now

Why do you so badly want this to have not happened?

You are delusional if you think any less than 95% of the general forum membership read the report the day after the (alleged) run, had not a single thought related to it being untrue, and moved on never to give it another thought. A few % with a personal agenda are floating a bunch of doubt, a few % are wasting time trying to reason with them and the other 95% accept it and are wise enough to stay out of the nonsense going on here.

In golf, every course is different - length, trees, water, rough, traps, even Par. Yet we still recognize the 3 golfers who shot 59 in a PGA round.
In football, playing conditions differ in every stadium, dome vs outdoors, grass vs. turf, altitude vs. sea level, etc... Yet, we still keep and recognize records.
In baseball, every field is different, dimensions, altitude, etc... Yet, we still keep and recognize records.
In fact, there was a very interesting TED talk by David Epstein where he attributes nearly all of the historical improvement in 100m dash times to improvements in track surfaces, shoes, etc ...
Conditions change in EVERY sport. But that doesn’t reduce or minimize the significance of record setting accomplishments of today, the past, or the future.
You make perfect sense.
However, in this silly game of pool, there exists god worshipers. And when the god gets toppled the worshipers go batcrazy.
That's the way it is with the Mosconi worshipers. Willie Mosconi is their god and "how dare someone beat his record".
I don't believe Mosconi ran 526 either. I think it was all lies by a bunch of drunks at some obscure pool room somewhere. Never happened....no movie film of it has ever been produced as evidence.
Merely some signed paper by a bunch of drunk ass pool players. And some comments from a book about the master liar himself...the one who claims to have run 526 balls. Doesn't mean a thing.

Great post, speaking as one who is wise enough to stay out of the nonsense.

Of course he's going to release video -- he wants to make money off the run, duh.

Now whether it'll be edited or unedited remains to be seen. Regardless, the truth of the matter is that as far as percentages go, the greatest percentage dan't care about a 14.1 run anywhichway. Even for those that care the moment has passed and interest dropped. I hope he sells a million of them but I kinda doubt it.

In all fairness, these “god worshipers” don’t exist only in Pool. I remember hearing that when Roger Maris broke Babe Ruth’s single season HR record, there was significant pushback because the season contained 162 vs. 154 games. And for many years, there was an asterisk placed next to Maris’ record (I believe it was later removed). We grow up with our sports idols as superheroes don’t want to see them turn human.

One of us is delusional and it is not I. Sarcasm will get you nowhere! Facts will. I can't figure which of your so call percentages that you and your palsy-walsys fit into. So please say plainly which you think that you might fall into.

Real facts from AZB Main Forum page data. 3,017 Most on line 1 day 02-24-20014. 68,370 Members. 3,017 divided by 68,370=0.0441%.

JS has claimed to have played straight pool for more than twenty-years. Surely he should have known which end of a table to play on. I guess he had no choice, since his rackman chose to rack the balls on the kitchen end of the table. He was doing so great on free practice runs for several months that they just chose to void any straight pool rules and set their own rules. Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!

The BCA advised, that "After reviewing the unedited video they are proud to announce John Schmidt's 626 run as the new 14.1 exhibition high run?


Yeah, it's over. But, by all means, the folks nobody heard of and never won a thing in pool, keep arguing to protect Mosconi's legacy... because even that doesn't need protecting with his dozen or so world championships, and one of the best, if not the best, to ever play the game.

carry on. I"m sure the only 1% can't wait to hear what you have to say next.

JS wouldn't give any of you the time of day unless you were to pay homage.

Records are not based on if we like JS or not. I never met the guy. Heck, he might not like me ;)

So, facts are facts, they don't change because you have an ax to grind.

There are a few pool players I don't care for much, but I don't make a history of chasing them around and telling them what they did wrong, and telling them they are not champs when they win. But, enjoy, I'm sure JS will walk away from the record he set if there are just a few more posts. You're getting so close, don't stop now boys !!

XradarDannyBallsX-

Learn to use the quote function. I don't want my name on your drivel.

Palsy Walsy ???? WTF. What year is this, 1932?

So now it's the end of the table he used is it? What other nuggets are in your back pocket. He wore shorts you know...better look into that advantage.
