if he had known Larry Owings was double jointed?

Dan didn't know this and it was one reason his arm bars didn't hold and work to punish the opponent. Dan even looked surprised a couple of times during the match when Owings would slip out of what held others tight.

 

If he had known before the match, would he have changed tactics a bit?

No, banbasketball, that is a photo of Larry after Gable got revenge in their rematch in freestyle. Yes that photo was taken after that match as Larry left the Arena, with his head planted firmly between his legs....literally!

Gable should have stalled the whole match, then got a takedown in the third after choosing neutral. Half Owing's points were off of reversals and scrambles. Had Gable watched how the soviets wrestled, he would have went undefeated. I bet he wishes he had youtube back in the 60's.

Not possible. Coin toss winner got to choose whether to start the 2nd period on top or bottom. Position was reversed by rule to start the 3rd.

 

He did seem to miss a couple opportunities at back points while acumulating over two min. RT advantage (worth 2pts then).
