~A New World Record Shines Fresh Light on a Long Forgotten Classic Billiards Game ~ By Brad Swain

As you may have heard by now Jayson Shaw set a new 14.1 straight pool high run world record of 714 continuous balls pocketed. A feat that I find absolutely incredible considering that Willie Mosconi held the all-time high run of 526 balls (running over 36 consecutive racks) on March 19, 1954, and he held that record for 65 years. After several weeks of effort John Schmidt tipped the record up to 626 On May 27, 2019.
