Smorg is giving St Peter the 7!
Let's all hope we get back to some sense of normalcy on all of this high run stuff. Someone mentioned that they thought a lot of rotation players will now take up 14.1 bc of all the hype from the Hi - Run-- Well-- wait until they get on their pool room 9 foot Diamond pro tables and figure out that they can't run 2 racks - we shall see how fast they run away from 14.1. The game is no where close to being as easy as it looked on this most recent challenge on Facebook.
I have long said that the reason Willie Mosconi was so valuable to Brunswick is that he made it look so easy that anyone could buy a table and start running racks! I watched old video of Willie when he was "on". Very very few shots over thirty inches total, cue ball to object ball to pocket. I don't remember him pocketing a ball that day that the average bar room banger couldn't pocket. The other side of that coin is that John and Jane Doe watching wouldn't see the magic of that run. Anyone could see the magic of Efren, the less flamboyant magic of Willie could slip right by those that didn't play pool.
I never played straight pool but sometimes after matching up with someone for an hour or three their young lady would come up to me, "That wasn't fair, you got all the easy shots!" "Yes ma'am, it goes that way sometimes."
