Rules - 02-03-2019, 07:15 PM

GHOST CHALLENGE RULES:

All games:
-Race to 7
-Break, take ball in hand and try to run out
-Runout is a win for you
-Miss or foul is a win for the ghost
-Cue ball fouls only
-Break scratch - all balls made spot up on the foot spot, take ball in hand and continue
-No restrictions on racking or breaking (magic rack, pattern racking, soft break, are okay)
-Money ball on the break spots up if it goes in the two foot pockets. *If it goes in any other pocket, its a win.

9-ball specific rules:
-Flukes count
-Early 9-ball (combo/carom) is a win for you (*including BIH shot)

10-ball specific rules:
-Call shot, flukes don't count, for both pro and regular version.
-Early 10-ball (combo/carom) is a win for you (*including BIH shot)


8-ball specific rules:
-BIH is optional from the kitchen after the break (and must shoot out of the kitchen). You do not have to take BIH on CB, if you like where it landed after the break better than with BIH in the kitchen.

Pro version for 8/9/10
-No BIH after break
-Break scratch is a loss of game

Video uploads are not required to participate, but encouraged if you have the means to do so.

Please post your score (you-ghost), date, table size/pocket size, and a link to your video (optional). Happy shooting!

Scores are listed in the main post with the information below:
Score (Win%), Member Name, Date, Table Type, Pocket Size, Video Link, Post Link (Past Scores)

*Designate relaxed rules compared to prior years.

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!

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?

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.
