Hi.
I played a test run of rotation ghost(race to 3 only) with piece of paper on table. I move piece of paper where i try land a position.
I also added commentary later where I try analyze and give thoughts about play. I think it could have some value to instructional way if done right. Dunno what is right way to do it so if you watch it give me some thoughts how to improve.

I got idea for that from practice session what I made earlier at same day. It was almost full set of Bert Kinister 60 minute workout. I recorded it also because it has been years since I made it last time .
Yeah. I know. I am lazy.

Ghost Challenge on Modified Table - 03-29-2017, 05:29 PM

Since I've modified my table to play more difficult than the Diamond Pro Cut tables it has been a bit frustrating at times knowing most of my misses would have been made on the Diamond tables. But, my game has continued to progress and my modified table continues to become easier and easier. Here is a video link of me playing the ghost in 8-Ball. I only took a couple ball in hands so this will not be posted in the pro version. Also there is a couple times I cursed out and one time banged an object ball out of frustration, I apologize for that. Anyway here is my video, hope you enjoy.

I will skunk the ghost 7-0 on this table soon.

Back to back 7-5 losses, 10-ball.

I've been putting in some work on my break lately and decided to play a few sets this morning. My break was hit and miss...hit a handful really well, mishit a lot of them.

It's all one long vid but first set is here:
https://youtu.be/4zuagQWMq4s

Second set is here:
https://youtu.be/4zuagQWMq4s?t=1816

I started getting really pissed during the second set. There was plenty of colorful language but I tried my best to edit that out. I know I missed some so sorry in advance.

The third set was a disaster...7-1 loss and I was coming unhinged. I don't think there is any amount of editing that could make that watchable so I just cut the vid off after the second set.

7-9 loss against the 9-ball ghost.

https://youtu.be/13sYNdoqszo

I had to put some music on...just some old 80s and 90s metal. YouTube might block it.

I'm planning on playing in a 9-ball tournament soon that will be races to 9 on 9 footers so I switched things up a bit for practice.

I don't know what my problem is lately but I just can't seem to get it together and pull some wins out. I played three sets today; 3-9, 8-9, and this one I posted, 7-9. I was going to post the hill-hill set but when I checked the vid I realized my camera was set up wrong and the head of the table was cut off so I set it up right and played one more.

Where are all the other vids?!? C'mon folks! I don't want to be the only one getting smashed by the ghost.

No worries! When you do edit the op, could you please remove my 10-ball scores from the 10-ball pro ghost section?

Thanks again for keeping this thread alive!

7-2 "win" vs 9-ball ghost in 11 minutes, Corey Deuel style. I only missed one ball.

https://youtu.be/K4bU9ezW740

Emphasis being on the quotations, lol. This is just ridiculous. I've actually never messed around with this particular break. I was goofing around and hit about five breaks in a row. I was so surprised at how easy it was to wire the combination, I just played a set for fun to see how it would turn out.

I "ran" the first four racks without taking ball in hand. It wouldn't be hard at all to post a 7-0 win breaking like this. If I were inclined to really put in some time learning to control the one, which I'm not, I could probably post a 7-0 set without ball in hand. Ridiculous, lol.

9-7 win 4/17/2017 9ft GClll 4.25" pockets

The 7-2 9-ball ghost "win" that you posted in the 10-ball section...I never meant for that to actually count. I was just goofing around with different breaks and thought it might be interesting to some people. You can remove that completely if you want.

I think I'm done posting vids for a while. I was trying to create some traffic in this thread, in hopes that more people would follow suit and post some vids. It didn't work, lol.

Anyway, thanks, poolmanis!

Played today couple sets against 9-ball Ghost. I played for muscle care 2 left handed matches that were tight, but losses. Last one I played Pro 9-ball Ghost and that was crazy hard match. Lost 6-7. A lot of turn arounds.. First rack especially was crazy.

I have only first rack on Tube so far. Gotta make whole match later.

9-ball Finnish Champs are getting close. Also I am thinking about going Snooker Finnish Champs too ..

Played some standard 9-ball Ghost and I was able to bust that Ghost.
7-0 Win.
9-ball Ghost video

I also tried some snooker Ghost. Smash the rack. Ball in hand after break. Then I try run more than half of points. I had so bad back ache I could to play only one frame. I was gonna play race to 3..
Made 105 break. I tried to make 147 so only black was used .

Nice! I like the snooker ghost. I've never seen anyone practice snooker that way, lol. Nice break...tough at the end though with so many reds near the cushion.

Next time I tried after I watched 2017 Snooker WC finals I made a little bit better..

Made 147.
I snipped break away because my friends said it would be better.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rRtIEF_vL0A

I already made topic about it but added it here(and to 1st page list) also because this thread is beginning of me playing Ghosts. Without this topic 2 years ago I probably never made 147..

P.s I think I got a new nickname. Last weekend I was on Finnish 9-ball Champs(17th. 149 players). Everybody called me "Mister Maximum" lol
