Default A thread over on AZB a couple...

On AZB, a couple of years ago, a thread or 2 was started on, Willie Mosconi's 526 ball run.

as you can imagine there were many posters praising the feat and many, many naysayers to the opposite! And how the players of today would fair trying to equal or surpass, Willie's record, under the same conditions.

I decided to call my very close friend Charlie Ursitti to let him know what was going on over there.

He wanted to set the record straight, since he was Willie's closest friend and confidant! Also, being one of the the foremost historians on the cue games, and especially on Willie Mosconi.

Here's our phone conversation from, 10/29/2016.

As a side note, John Schmidt is dedecating a few weeks at Easy Street Billards in Monterey Ca trying to break Mosconiís record of 526. Cameras are rolling. On his fourth try he reached 351 and didnít have a shot after a break shot. Good luck John.

IMHO, if the conditions, (Brunswick 4'x8' table) isn't used, what ever John's run will be, it will be irrelevant, pertaining to breaking Mosconi's 526 ball run!

I am not so sure about that.

Is Mosconi's 526 record only relevant because he broke the previous record that was set on the same type of table with same type of pockets?

Most likely, because he was sponsored by, Brunswick!
