You've got me inspired to start working hard on the Exam again too. The 91 is going to be tough for me to beat, but I will give it my best.

Catch you later,
Dave

FYI, Lee Cooper just posted a 95!

Here's his video:

Lee Cooper's 95 (currently 1st place in the Challenge)

Good luck,

I almost feel guilty watching you shoot on your tough 10' table, when I'm shooting on my easy 9' table, but the guilty feelings don't last long.

Good luck,
Dave

I've decided to spend 60-90 minutes every morning Monday - Friday working on Exam 1 before I go to work. After work i should be able to get 60-90 minutes 2-3 times/week and Saturday/Sunday will be marathons when I'm not away from home. It will be interesting to see how much my game improves over the next 39 days. Cheers!

I'm glad to hear it.

I look forward to seeing what you can do with more dedicated practice,

Not enough to move into second place but It's still an improvement. Scored an 84.

How high do you think you will reach on your tough table?

FYI, I just posted a 93. Here's the video:

Dr. Dave - Exam I video - 93

Now I'm inspired to try to catch Lee, who is currently in 1st with a 95.

Nice job Dave. Awesome shooting! Is that a REVO shaft?

Thanks. This was the first time I had no misses on the draw drill. The 19 out of 20 was also my best score ever on the wagon wheel drill. I used to think I would never get a perfect score on the wagon drill, but now I think I can do it.

On the last drill, Iíve practiced the draw shot to target position 2 using two approaches: drawing straight to the target like you and others do, and using a firm stroke with left to go off two rails. I always do better with the second approach, but I still need to practice that some more.

Yes it is. 12.4. Iíve been playing with the Revo for over a year now. Before that, I used a Z2 for many years.

Catch You later,

76...bummer.

I finally set my table back up and started working on the different parts of exam 1. This was my first run at the whole exam since I got that last 76 without a video. I really thought Iíd do better after a little practice, and I did on the wagon wheel, but I dogged some other drills.

Anyway I thought Iíd go ahead and upload it since I didnít have a vid for the other 76. I muted a lot of the vid to spare you my foul language, poor commentary, and worse singing.

Edit: I miscounted! I just rewatched the vid and I scored 8 on the 5th drill, not 7. So my score is actually 77! New personal best!!

It's always fun to get a PR. Way to go!

I've updated the info on the first page of the thread, and I've added it to the $4000 Billiard University (BU) Exam I 100 Challenge page. Please PM or e-mail me your name to list on the challenge page instead of "AZB peppersauce," especially if you think you have a chance to improve your score into the top 3.

Now let's see how high you can push the score with some dedicated practice,
Dave
