Very nice playing, a lot of the shots remind me of my (past) carom training.
Some of the shots are just so easy with the carom balls.
He's also very good a assembling the balls so the next hit is easier again.

And that's the most difficult/beautiful part to small games carom
Gathering them, keeping close to the short rail to continue to score

It's key or else you won't make big runs if your fighting with the balls scattered all over the table

I guess that is Raymon Groot from the Netherlands but with the hat on it's hard to tell. He played in the Verhoeven Open 3-Cushion that just finished in NYC. He finished first in his qualification group including a win over Eddy Merckx, the former world champion. I got to score one of his games.

For those who do not know the game he is playing, he just has to hit the two other balls with his cue ball but is not allowed to keep the balls in one area. If the two object balls are in one of the marked rectangles, he has one shot to prepare and on the next shot must drive one of the balls out of the area.

He's got pretty good speed control.

Am I wrong to be suspicious of the editing (there is often an edit between shots)? Not saying he did this, but he could have replaced the balls and shot again to keep his run going.

That's a fair and natural thought
He could have
But ye edited it for the viewer
Look at the rest of his videos he can play
His gathering and speed control prove it

He tries to bring a different approach to teaching with humor and silliness, so it doesn't suprise me he edited it for time,

Not as if this is him claiming to be the first to run a 150, many have and many have run more

Spanish player Raul Cuenca ran 200 and out in 71.2 this yr in the European championships as in the same event Eddy leppens won the 47.2 final by running a whopping 250 and out
