Are there rules for playing the ghost other than b.i.h or no b.i.h?

I'm gonna try and do another vid soon.

Just want to make sure I don't "break"lol...the rules.

From what I remember last year, it’s BIH after the break. If you scratch, you spot any balls made and then take BIH. Anyone confirm?

Ok. I will keep an eye on thread to make sure about rules.

BTW, the scores I turned in earlier are not accurate because I scratched a couple times but left the made balls down.

Thanks.

GHOST CHALLENGE RULES:


Race to 7 (or more if you like)
Break, take ball in hand and try to run out
9-ball rules (hit lowest ball first, flukes count)
Runout or early 9-ball (combo/carom) is a win for you
Miss or foul is a win for the ghost
Cue ball fouls only
9 ball on the break OR on the BIH shot after the break - not a win, the 9 spots up
Break scratch - all balls made spot up on the foot spot, take ball in hand and continue
No restrictions on racking (magic rack, pattern racking are okay)

8-ball - take BIH from the kitchen after breaking
10-ball - Call shot, flukes don't count

Pro version - 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)

Copy from last two years

P.s Rules are optional IMO. I sometimes forgot myself how they go
I copied them from original creator of this Ghost challenge thread.

my 7-3 10-ball win - 01-31-2018, 07:33 AM

I added my 7-3 win on 10-ball where I try to tell my thoughts while I beat Ghost.

4-7 loss against the 9-ball “pro” ghost.
https://youtu.be/7YL786tNAIc

I got bored and decided to goof around with the SVB/DO type break after watching Dr. Dave’s video. It wasn’t working so well for me this set but I wasn’t hitting the rack accurately and my CB was all over the place.

I went ahead and uploaded this one and two sets later, while this vid was uploading, I was up 4-1 after losing the first game then running a 4 pack. I liked my chances from there and was a little bummed that I didn’t have the camera rolling...then I lost six games in a row.

I’ve never beaten the “pro” ghost...I’m going to keep at it and see if I can get lucky.

Nice 4 pack! I’m an underdog to even make a ball on the break 4 times in a row!

A rare 7-0 win. BIH version. Phone was shut off mid match due to storage. Video shows 4 1/2 racks. Quite a bit upset as the complete video would've served as a reminder of success after my recent efforts during practice.

GC3. 4.25" corners, 4.75" sides.

Yes in my Android. I used my wife's iphone, but I didn't know I had to delete all the deleted videos twice to completely erase the files. So the recording just stopped half way while I was playing.

Many of memory cards have old type file system. 4gb is max file size then. My phone records 31 min. Then 4gb max size of memory card(for one file) is full. Memory card total size is 64gb...
I gonna buy newer phone soon with internal memory of 64gb so I can record longer videos without manually restarting recording.

P.s I have lost countless good 14.1 runs or Ghost sets due that 4gb restriction

P.p.s List updated

I'm going to setup a permanent camera solution on the table and will probably get it done this week or early next week. I might have some visitors this month and might do some live streaming. The whole phone recording just doesn't work as well and the presented angle is terrible.

Very nice! Man your stroke is STRAIGHT. Sucks that the vid was cut short. That has happened to me as well...frustrating.

Poolmanis—that other 4-7 loss without a vid was against the pro ghost as well.

Man I thought I was going to beat that dang no BIH ghost today. I had four 4-7 loss sets today and I had chances every time. I just need the racks to spread right, a good look at the one, and to not do anything stupid, lol.
