Thanks for doing this. It's always a good time trying one of these. For anyone who hasn't tried doing this, it's much easier than I thought (the video uploading, not beating the ghost). Just put your smart phone up high and point it at the table. Record the video. Upload to YouTube. Quick and easy!

Poolmanis 02-05-2019 06:59 PM

Thanks. :thumbup:
I have been busy putting up a lot of table mechanics and setting our new private billiard club(6x 10ft Finnish Kaisa tables,3x 12ft Russian Pyramid tables, 1x 12ft Snooker table and 2x 9ft Pool tables total soon)... We are waiting for delivery of new 9ft pool table there.
I try play match vs Ghost in our city another pool hall. They got all Diamonds just reclothed. :cool:

And mute video if there is a background music. Copyright shit happens.

When I had time to practice on late last year I did mostly Snooker line up drill.
I tried to make 147 with black. Then 132 maximum with pink only. Then I drilled a lot with blue only. Learned a lot from that. Especially more consistent speed control. Not really on stroke, but rather on guessing right speed on different angles.

Here is one line up drill session where I try make 147 and 132 on row.

Can I do it? ;)

8-ball was yesterday.

9-ball was this morning.

Edit: Thanks, iusedtoberich, for keeping this going. I enjoy participating and watching all the vids other AZrs post. :thumbup:

Good job both! First link updated. And thanks for the kind words.

JazzyJeff87 02-09-2019 04:01 PM

So i finally beat the ghost at something. I still can't win the 9ball game but i got the 7ball ghost today lol. Thanks old school ESPN for showing me the way.

7-1 on 02/09/2019 - oversized 8' with 5" corners...and a healthy lean to one side ;)

So why can i only do 15 minute videos on youtube? I play a little slow i guess so it's in 3 parts, though the last is only like 2 minutes.
