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.

Sounds good. I look forward to seeing how well you can do.

Good luck,

This is not a qualifying match. I just wanted to share my 3 rack run on my 10' Brunswick with modified pockets. The first 2 racks are payed pro style with no ball in hand, the 3rd rack I took ball in hand after the break. I just wanted to share the super thin cut shot in the 2nd rack to get out. Was the length of the table and if it wasn't for the BU Exams I probably wouldn't have made the shot. Thanks Dave. Anyway here it is. Hope you enjoy.

New link. Original one didn't work.

I often tell myself: "I should make this shot ... it is just like the X shot in BU Exam Y."

Catch you later,
Dave

PS: As always, nice shooting!

I had a video that I tried uploading to YouTube 5 time
but every time it said the upload got aborted. It also
said remaining upload time was like 2 hrs so it not
worth the trouble. I did end up winning 7-6. Shouldn't
have been that close but I blew a couple relatively easy outs
I guess that's normal for us amateurs though. Set was played
on a 9ft Diamond pro am with pro cut pockets

I finally got part of the video to upload. First time I've ever tried anything
like this so I had no clue what I was doing.

7-3 win against the 9-ball ghost before work yesterday morning.

Edit: I chopped out all the unnecessary stuff so the vid is easier to watch. It’s half as long now.

9 ball ghost:
Magic rack, no particular pattern, B.I.H after break, any scratch=loss, 9 can't go on break or on B.I.H, slop counts.

7/4 W, 9ft diamond pro am, 4.5" pockets, 1/2/18
6/7 L, 9ft pro am, 4.5 pocket, 12/18/17
7/3 W, 9ft pro am, 4.5 pocket, 11/26/17

10 Ball Ghost:
Magic rack, no pattern, B.I.H after break, 10 can't go on break or with B.I.H, scrarch=loss, call shots.

6/7 L, 9ft pro am, 4.5 pockets, 1/2/18

I'm gonna try to play the 9 and 10 ball ghost more often and get it on camera, phone etc...
