he did run more than anyone ever. but didn't shatter the record.

mosconi did his in a public exhibition and was done on one try.

setting up a scenario and playing hours on end for weeks or more to do the run on your own set up table is something entirely different although a tremendous feat.

similar to trying to hit the longest home run. and setting it up on your home field and hitting for the fence hundreds or more times until you hit it as far and claiming a new record.

Mosconi did thousands of exhibitions. He only ran 526 at one of them. And it was on an 8’ table. Yes, I know many times Mosconi simply quit his exhibition runs when he was satisfied for the spectators. So he probably *could have* had many other high or higher runs had he tried more often. But he didn’t, so he only left us with that one documented run of 526.

Schmidt did his differently, but there are two reasons that for me his run has as much or more validity than Mosconi’s — one being the obvious that Schmidt’s was on a 9’ table, as opposed to Mosconi’s being on an 8’ table. To my knowledge 8’ tables have NEVER been considered to meet professional standard for straight pool, so that is a pretty serious issue right off the bat. And the other being that it was recorded on video. I know there was a signed affidavit for Mosconi — but who knows if there were any little odd quirks like a miscount in the racks, or a non-called ball dropping instead of the intended ball, or a foul, etc; at least with Schmidt we should all be able to watch it for ourselves and make our own judgment. Frankly I trust my own eyes better than 50 or so fanboy signatures on an affidavit.
