Shaun V thanks for the response on video editing.

I lost against the Pro 9 Ball ghost 6-7 on 3-21. Oversized 8' w/5' pockets. https://youtu.be/mMWxZkicK-8

and I finally figured it out and got the 7 ball all in 1 video. https://youtu.be/DIAsTnQUTjs


I like doing the ghost thing. Real people are def better to play but since i really started trying to beat the ghost i feel like i've gotten a lot better. Well i have for sure since i used to loose 1-7, 2-7, occasionally 3 but often 0 just a couple months ago and now i'm usually close.

Congratulations on your newfound skill/knowledge level.

All of us from total beginner to elite pro have the one thing in common:

We'll take improvement ANY way we can get it.

Having said that, the more improvement you make....the harder it will get to improve.


I knew a fellow that thought he was a good boxer because he was in a position to befriend a lot of "professional boxers". It cost him azzwhippens till he realized he wasn't what he thought/wished he was.

Do you know anyone like the "wannabe" boxer in the pool world?

Jumping in as I've been trying to get back in stroke for a couple reasons but mainly an upcoming tourney.

Anyway, 10 ball ghost has been getting the best of me but I got him here a few days back and have been giving him a tougher and toughr fight as the days go by.

This one is funny because my girl is roller blading around the table as I play. The first part failed the upload and I deleted it before I realized it. Oh well more to come. I'm getting shark proofed at least.

Won this one 7-4. Will post some losses too.

Good shooting!

Iím always curious when I see players with a really nice cue action like yours...do you have a coach or teacher? Or did you just learn from watching the better players in your area? I know snooker is played a lot more in Canada than here in the US, so I was thinking maybe you started on a snooker table.

There is a lot of Snooker around here, but Iíve never played it, just donít enjoy it for some reason.

John Morra lives and plays in this area (now hes in states mostly) so did get to play and watch him a good amount. Iíve always liked his cue action. I wanted to improve my cue action so started to try and emulate his stroke. Took me a good year to even get used to it and almost gave up on it, but iím glad i didnít. So yeah iíd say Johnnies game influenced my cueing for sure. Never had any coaching or teaching, just a lot of watching.

Well John is a great player to emulate, for sure. I actually played a lot of snooker for the first year I picked up the game, then switched to pool and never really went back. I never had any coaching as far as cueing technique either, but I tried to emulate the Pinoys for years and wound up with lots of flaws in my cueing before I learned better. Busty was my favorite player, lol. I'm constantly working to improve little things here and there to make my delivery more consistent and accurate.

Well, watching Gatz play got me all amped up to try the ghost out this morning. I got lucky and won 7-2. All the racks opened up nicely, no balls tied up. All I had to do was not miss. I got a couple of rolls too. Hit a couple of shots bad but ended up ok.

Edit: Forgot to add—9-Ball, standard version, same table.
