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.
Sorry. I have not been able videos lately. I also have been busy lately with tournaments. I won Finnish Champs on Finnish Kaisa Billiards(scotch doubles) and have 14.1 ranking tournament tomorrow. So I have been studying 14.1 runs. Also trying to start new business. New woman also not helping

Thank you! Like many players, sometimes I see balls. Sometimes I don't. I did a 9-1 in 9-ball last year and this was the first time I blanked one. Hoping I can do a century on 10.0 non-continuous this year.

Yeah I watched it earlier today. I was wondering how you were getting the wing ball to go so frequently while breaking so close to center with a frozen rack. That’s what got me started messing around with the break. The closest I can get is a diamond away from the side rail on either side with a full hit and it’s touchy.

My table isn’t trained, per se. But I use a Delta 13, have the rack outlined, and a line drawn from the foot spot to the center diamond on the foot rail. I’m kind of particular about my rack and, honestly, probably don’t even need a triangle at this point. I have racking templates but I don’t need them to get a frozen rack.

Thanks for the vids, sir! Very informative.

The ghost in my house gets a bigger spot then normal. I have an 8 footer and I have bad walls that are a little over a foot to close to the table on the sides... so the short stick comes into play a fair bit. Frustrating, but a price to pay to be able to shoot at home and stay in stroke between trips to the poolhall.

I attempted this video last night and screwed myself about 5 times being close to the rail and needing to let my stoke out with the short cue... either dogging the ball or missing shape. Soon after the battery in my phone was too low to record the entire set so I gave up on recording.

As soon as I took the camera off and plugged it in, I snapped him off at 7-2. I'm gonna get a win on video soon hopefully, please don't put this score up there, I'd rather have the video of it as proof.

Ended up deleting video. Gotta upload it again later without sounds. Maybe put some no copyright music instead..

Easy-e:

Thanks. As you seen, it was not pretty to say the least. Again, thanks.

Poolmanis:

Yes, it's a revo. I like it even though i am having a hard time adjusting to it.

The problems that I have with revo is i seem to over run shape, especially softer touch draw shots. It really cost me some grief in the set. I'll get there with some more practice.
