As you can probably imagine, my break shot is much more accurate and consistent on my produced videos than it is in "real life" where I can't edit out the poor breaks.

I'll try to work on the 10-ball ghost when I can find some time. First, I want to beat my BU Exam personal-record scores. With a little effort, I think I should be able to crush my previous-best Exam I score (85). That's my goal anyway, but it will take some dedicated and focused practice and numerous attempts.

When you get a chance, please consider posting scores and videos on the AZB BU Sticky thread. I look forward to seeing how high you can push your scores if you apply yourself. Have you tried the exams yet? I can't remember, and I don't see scores for you on the thread. I'm surprised because I would think you would really enjoy the challenge and focused practice.

Catch you later,
Dave

I shoot pool at poolhall. So marking tables are not always so easy. Also, lately I have been really busy at work because my old working partner retired. Should get new employee next month. Maybe then

The only donuts that are really necessary are the stop-shot donuts, but even those are not totally required. Also, the donuts (self-adhesive hole-reinforcement labels) are easy to remove from the table and don't leave a residue, so hopefully you can convince your room owner to let you put them on for a session.

Good luck,
