I broke my Exam I PR today, topping my previous best 88 with an 91 while working on improving my entry to the $4000 Billiard University (BU) Exam I 100 Challenge. Here's the new video.

I finally took over the top Exam I score spot from "Side Pocket." A year ago, I would have never thought that was possible, so I'm pretty happy about my new score.

I've updated my info below and on the first post of the thread. I hope other AZB'ers will get motivated to take a stab at the Challenge cash or just post their scores and videos here as many other AZB users have.

Good luck,
Dave

I am hoping this might encourage Scott (Side Pocket) to come out of "BU Exam Retirement" to re-claim his title and maybe enter the $4000 Billiard University (BU)
Exam I 100 Challenge


Scott, are you still playing a bunch?

Regards,
Dave

Hadn't touched my cue in 5-6 weeks and wanted to see where I was. Things went well at first and then fell apart. Lol Guess it's not like riding a bike. Got a 69 and now I know where my weak spots are. 'till next time.

Thanks for posting that. It is interesting to see a "baseline" score after some time off.

Now show us what you can do.

I certainly expect you to place in the top 3 of the $4000 Billiard University (BU) Exam I 100 Challenge, even on that tough table of yours.

What do you predict your high score will be after some dedicated practice with the Exam?

Good luck,
Dave

PS: I hope you beat my 91 soon to give me some motivation to put in some hard work again.

I do believe I could post a 94 or 95 and with a bit of luck, who knows, maybe a perfect 100.

Why don't you just jump right to the mid 90s (or even 100) and get this over with.

FYI, I added you as the new 3rd place entry on the $4000 Billiard University (BU) Exam I 100 Challenge page.

Catch you later,

If you keep increasing 4 points per day, you'll be at 100 for the $2500 within a week!
