New 2018 Ghost is on!

After a long break from pooI(I was still playing, but not pool) I played two nights against Ghost.

Rusty at beginning. After few hours I started finally making tables and almost had 7-and out against pro ghost on 8-ball match.
That was quite lucky because I was not breaking so good and my cueball was not really on string.
Tables are playing extremely slow because it is so cold outside and this place let some coldness in that slow tables even more.

Won that finally 7-5. Should be 7-0.. but table is tight. Even I used pocket speed on that missed shot. No help from that
Link to match with 6-pack opener:
https://youtu.be/kxStmb8Q7Ss

Next night I was practicing 10-ball. I then decided to try match of 10-ball against Ghost while talking about my thoughts and giving maybe some tips too.
Won that 7-3. Video coming later.

I got also two results from last year thread from jrctherake added here because they were played 2018.(no vids from him yet)

P.s If some forum mod could take down 2017 challenge from sticky and put this 2018 one there instead. Please. Thank you

Won 7-2 - 01-17-2018, 09:40 PM

I beat the 9 ball Ghost 7-2. I was up 6-0 and had a good chance at blanking the Ghost!

I was playing with a set of Cyclop balls that I bought brand new 3 or 4 years ago, but never took out of the box. I decided to use them this week, as I'm going to the DCC in a few days. I really liked them, and my score reflects that. ha ha.

Video has dead space removed for easy viewing.

Good shooting! I dig the music too. Iím not much of a fan of anything they did after Justice though. See, you didnít miss until Nothing Else Matters came on...just sayin.

I tried the ghost some last night...5-7 loss. Struggling. Maybe it was the 90ís/2000ís acoustic rock, lol. Itís something on the board for the new year though. https://youtu.be/nbJ38QlzIxY

Nice shooting guys.

As soon as I get even close to adjusted to the new cue/shaft (revo) I will put a vid up.

It seems the more I play with the revo the worse I play. I've had it around two weeks. We'll see soon enough...lol.

I've been running mostly ball speed and shots with side spin drills but I did do one race tonight. 9 ball ghost, race to 7.....it was sad, ghost 7 / Jeff 3. The 3 wins were the ugliest outs I've ever seen.

Don't know how long it's gonna take to get use to the revo. I hope it's soon as I'm getting sick of getting my butt kicked.

Keep up the good work,

Rake

You might also add a link to the 2015 Challenge Thread. That was the first.

I also encourage people who like a challenge to consider posting on the Billiard University (BU) playing-ability-exam scores and ratings thread. There are lots of scores and videos from top AZB players (past and present) there.

Thank you for your efforts,
Dave
