    I managed to track cue ball path! OpenCV

    I do think you need a fixed camera position for the speeds and angles like PerformStars gets. They require one static camera on submitted videos. I suspect they define the table dimensions at the start of the analysis process, similar to what you did in one of your YouTube videos.

    I managed to track cue ball path! OpenCV

    Nice work. Any other goals with this project? FYI, I don't think the HSV method will work for the stripe balls.

    Professional level according to Fargo

    And, for an example of the money bringing more top players, I think I've heard that Appleton, Boyes, and others came to pool because of the prizes from the IPT.

    How to track cue ball movement?

    You wouldn't need multiple cameras for ball tracking. Multiple cameras would be needed for the shot line stuff because of the 3D aspect of it.

    How to track cue ball movement?

    I am sure they are using OpenCV. It is an open source free library that has a lot of tools and functionality built-in for "computer vision" projects. Here is an example of how easy it is to start building ball tracking app with it.

    One American in final 16 in Spain

    For those that aren't familiar with him, Nick was interviewed on the Pool Player podcast. After Matchroom announced the ranking points qualifications for the Mosconi Cup team, I heard someone mention that he was going to try to qualify. I think he is trying to play every point earning event...

    How My YOUTUBE Channel Got HACKED … Don’t Let This Happen to You, With Any Online Accounts

    Looking at the "from" address and hovering over the link are the best things to start with on any emails asking you to click a link or open an attachment when they lead to obvious conclusions that you can ignore and delete the email. But, I don't think hovering over the link is enough to know...

    What format will be used for this tournament?

    The flyer you listed shows the following website. The site has the following "Rules and Equipment" link. Unfortunately, it isn't more specific to which ball set will be used. Only has "Aramith Belgian Balls"

    I didn't listen to the stream but they did show a "flyer" for Chua and Shane towards the end of the stream, during one of their breaks between games. Maybe, Chua is unavailable now and Busti is stepping up.

    It's Shane and Chua next, Sept. 15th - 17th.
