It's comical. I'll say it again: The dude ran SEVEN HUNDRED AND FOURTEEN BALLS. We cold setup a table with 7" gaff pockets and none of us would come close to half that. Give it a rest already. Buy the video or don't. But can we all agree it was an amazing accomplishment? Some of you need to put away your inner Harriman and move on.
That was my point in a post some time back

What is the easiest pocket template/size there is for a 9’ table?

Nobody knows. All the experts just don’t know. They just bitch and moan this table was too easy. What’s easier? Funny nobody answers that question with their infitate wisdom. I can’t spell-they can’t tell!

Prove it. Get a box and a player and run more balls.

So Shaws record is as good as any record!!!!

If it’s so easy and it’s the table-go beat it. Good luck with that.

Record is Fatboy Approved “platinum level”

Expert? Experts? Bitchers/moaners, most of who(m) post here, can’t/don’t even play the game of 14.1. They just want to dominate the conversation.
List of what’s in their pouches/bags demonstrates their experience.
I can play off the wall, never needed a bag.
But, in my pocket, I always carry a small tape measure.
Before I shoot one ball into any pocket, I measure the mouth of the corner pockets.
I determine the precision level required to play at the top of my game on that particular table and then adjust to the level of play of my opponent, not the table.
Good to hear from the Chief bitcher moaner expert from the Schmidt thread.

Good point!

I've seen Earl do the same thing, but he judges them rapidly and expertly with the combined diameters of two balls placed there.

Assesses all four pockets in a 15-second walk-around! Looks like a cool professional . . . and subtly sharks a lesser opponent in the process
. . . like the Miz would do, when -- with a conspicuous flair -- he'd smile and peel out a hundred dollar bill from his roll, then burnish his shaft with it right before the lag.

You never know what kind of weird stuff ends up valuable. Maybe Shaw will somehow distinguish himself in WW3 and end up ruling a fiefdom and eventually a continent.

His scientists work out cold fusion, interstellar travel, a cure for OB skid...he becomes a worldwide icon and some kid in 2152 has this strange reflective disc that has purportedly captured shaws essence while he played some real life billiards game really well.

Just a guess.

Bought some extra Tomagotchies(kid’s toys) for around 5 bucks in the discount bin, and last year they were going for up to $70 bucks on eBay. Did the same with rookie cards and other stuff. If it’s not worth anything in 50 years, no biggie, spend more than $125 on a night out, no big loss!

In 50 years a DVD will be about as playable as a 78 rpm shellac record is now :LOL:
There’s some 78 rpm records, and I have a few in my ‘future’s safe’, that are worth some money. If I sell them in the future the buyer wouldn’t be playing them. You don’t understand collectibles. In 50 years the 714 would have been all over the Internet and future formats anyway. You wouldn’t buy Babe Ruth’s bat to go out and hit some balls with it .. boy is your face red 🤭

Most "instant collectibles" that are pitched from the beginning as rare or interesting end up not being collectible or valuable.

The majority of truly collectible objects start out as normal, not especially desirable items but happen to become valuable through a combination of increased demand via unpredictable external factors and tight supply.

In your defense, it would certainly be unpredictable if the Shaw 714 DVD is viewed as desirable in 50 years :geek:

Less, even. Shellac is a fairly stable substance, and any turntable can still play them so long as they have a 78 rpm setting. DVDs, like all optical discs, will suffer from disc rot in which the layers separate if exposed to widely varying temperatures, and all digital formats are only as good as they player's compatibility.

Properly cared for optical media will outlast people's life span & that is a fact.
