I did get a camera for my birthday, I was having trouble setting up the camera to get a good angle, the tripod it came with was very tiny. (Like 12 inches or slightly less (30 cm)) It looked ok on the camera's little screen but on my tv it was just horrible because of the flat angle. I need to get the camera a little higher up for sure. I will try to go have a pool night this week and see if I can't get a video together that is maybe worth watching. I also want to get an angle where it shows the table longwise, with the balls close to the camera, like professional streams usually have. I wasn't able to set anything up like that the first time I got to use the camera.

Yes higher = better
Maybe you can make some kind platform where you can get tripod higher.

Poolmanis,

Will there be a 2019 ghost thread?


Don't let your bark be bigger than your stroke.

If I had plenty of money, I would probably lose more often.

Are we going to have a 2019 thread? I just moved, and I sold my 9’ Diamond. Picked up a bar table and am ready to take on the ghost! First submission is 8-ball race to 7. Hope you enjoy.

What kind of table is that? Just a little tip you are standing up on your shots stay down until the object ball drops in the pocket.

I dont stand up as much or as fast as Easy does but, I do stand up a little on purpose. If I stay down like I'm supposed to... lol ... my back wouldn't last 20 minutes at the table.

Easy:

Do you have back issues? If so, just try to raise up a "little" slower. If no back issues, well, stay down and as you probably already know, you'll play stronger position, not to mention, be more accurate in the pocket.

How are you liking the smaller table?

I do have some back issues, but Iím sure I could manage staying down a little while longer. Iíve always been a pretty fast player. I have a couple of kids and work a lot of hours, so when I get some table time I usually rush a little. Definitely something to work on.

I know itís not popular, but Iíve always liked these diamond bar tables. I still consider myself a big table player, but the challenges of bar table 8-ball has always been fun for me. Also, it seems like every big tournament around here is on the bar tables, so hopefully Iíll sharpen up a little and win something.

Played the 9-ball ghost today without BIH. I know it’s only a 7’ table, but I feel lucky to ever have a shot on the one ball after the break! Enjoy.

Raising up on shots is "in general" a recipe for disaster.... but...., if you watch enough Efren, Earl, Shane, Dennis and several other TOP players, you will see that they raise up at times "exactly" like you. Obviously, none of them do it every single shot, then again, neither do you.

Back issues, low stances, constant fatigue and children all at the same time is not exactly the best situation for worrying about staying down on shots.

I would advise you to try raising your stance up a "tad"... at a time until you find a sweet spot.

I play my best when super low on cue. But, when I get that low and STAY down till OB hits target, well, my "in zone" time drastically reduces to the point to where the trade off is not worth it.

I'm a better player in a grinding session if I raise my stance up a few inches.

As you said, its something to work on.

Yep, barboxes are WAY more popular in tournament play, as well as, private play in most rooms.

Your a big table player. Remember, spending all that time on a big table will always be with you and will make you even better on the BB.

BTW, I've been thinking about getting a second table. I was thinking about another 9 footer...... a gold crown IV for 14.1 and my pro am for rotation games but, I'm starting to think I may like a Diamond BB as my second table.

See what you caused

Been gone for a while. Poolmanis, are we still doing the ghost challenge this year?

If anyone is still interested, I played the 10- ball ghost this morning with no ball in hand. Lost, but had some chances to make it close.

https://youtu.be/QufdbZw5AL4

YouTube blocked the vid so I had to mute it.

I think Poolmanis has been busy. If you can start a new thread that would be great.
