John Schmidt breaks Mosconi's record

Schmidt, the 2012 straight pool world champion, had made a run of 403 balls in 2007. A year ago, though, he began a concerted, dedicated effort to top Mosconi’s 526. For a month at a time he would shoot six to eight hours a day, filming the sessions for verification. His latest monthlong attempt, beginning May 8, was his fourth. The tally sheet for his effort shows a load of 112s and 171s and 289s, with an occasional score over 400. On May 15, he set a personal best of 490, still 36 short of Mosconi. Finally, on Monday May 27th 2019 at Easy Street Billiards in Monterey, he opened with a 126, then recorded his big 626.
