I have to question the value of the fargo rankings when I see that there are currently 18 female players in the world who (according to Fargo) would be favored in a match vs Allison Fisher.

Allison isn't what she once was. I believe there are that many. Did you watch that Russian gal Tkach? Reminds me of Allison in her prime. The female game is way up from days gone by worldwide.

Believe me beating the ghost on a 9' Diamond is easier than uploading a video on YouTube where I live. It takes like 6 hrs to upload a 30 minute video.

I figured I would be the sucker and go ahead and try the ghost on a 9' Diamond.
I posted the video in the ghost challenge thread if anyone needs a good laugh.
I've been laughed at before so don't hold back. Anyway it was fun. Almost got really lucky at the end but I was glad I didn't win that game. I've been struggling some over the last couple weeks so maybe the challenge will help me get back in stroke.

Since Fargo doesn't track potting %, winning % etc... just game win/loss, it should be easy to rate the ghost. I have a feeling the ghost's speed is around the 660 range. I have played the ghost many, many long races over the years. When I play around a 700 level, race to 30 on tight 9ft, ghost is under 20 wins. A couple years ago I was down to 620's Fargo. The ghost was winning by nearly the same score (30-20 range). Thats what I'm basing the rating on.

What caused your rating to drop so much?

I took 5 years off from pool. When I started again, it was straight to tournaments and no practice. I'm back to 640's but playing, I feel, closer to 700 range at moment. Fargo seems to drop rating much quicker than gain. Great for me cause I can sandbag a Fargo event at the moment.

I think her Fargo rating is lagging her actual speed, as she is young and rapidly improving. I'd say a player who has plateaued for several years and is stuck at 700 would lose in the long run on a 9' Pro Cut diamond.

Locally, 15 or so years ago when Josh Brothers was committed to pool and the best player in all of Philly, we bet against him on a double shimmed 9' GC. He lost. I think Fargo shows him about 730 last time I checked a while back, but I don't believe it was established.

Tkach is amazing. I wonder if her coach is the coach of the "The Billiard Boys" from Russia. Same coach for our Mosconi team.

Well it sounds like we have the potential for action here.

Well she stays with the Roy's basement crew. None stop playing with all the world class Phillipine players can't hurt. Probably how she got so good at the 10b break.

Tkach was the world's junior 9ball champ.

I have never seen a math problem with a line for "feelings" must be that common core stuff.
