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
Awesome shooting!

I'd like to start trying the ghost challenge. I finally bought a table and had it installed in the garage. I also have a video camera (it's kind of old). It has the option to record on these little tapes, or it can take a SD memory card. Can one of you computer geniuses tell me how I can get the video off of the camera and onto the internet machine for y'alls viewing pleasure?

I used an old video camera I found in my basement for a while. They usually come with a cable that connects to your computer. The problem I had was storage space. I couldn't record for a long time and the vid wasn't sharp. I gave up on it when I realized the camera was so old I couldn't even upgrade the memory card for longer vids.

Now I have a smart phone that I can do the whole thing with...shoots HD video, phone came with a video editing app already installed, and I can just upload straight to YouTube after editing. It's way easier than using a regular camera. That's the way to go if you don't know what you're doing, imo. (I don't)

I don't even know what generation my iPhone is, lol. When I say I'm not a tech guy, I mean it. Whatever it is I have, it's dummy proof.

Got a tough win against the 10-ball ghost today. Finally won after 9 straight losses.

added your matches to list!
Ghost can be cruel sometimes

I played also versus Ghost couple days ago(I have been working A LOT last months) . I was facing 10-ball pro Ghost and played super strong. I think I won 7-6 or 7-5. Were up 5-0... Had little bit unlucky breakshots.
Video coming later when I have time to make it!

(Edit. I hit 4-pack from start and made hero clearance from unlucky dry 5th break!)

Here is link to this tight match: https://youtu.be/u6okbwLetu4
I played great and was really getting pressure when Ghost (his usual no give up attitude)started catch up..
I also added some random free music to overcome some radio playing background sometimes..

Thanks Dave. I was little psyched due I hit maybe 10th time 4 pack run out and dry 5th break!
Now put some effort and destroy Ghost for us!
You seem to have nice break shot nowadays... That is one thing I noticed from your sneak peak of new instructional series.
