Another 4-7 this morning against the no BIH 9-ball ghost. I played 3 sets and lost 1-7, 3-7, and 4-7 respectively.

No need to add this to the main post. Just sharing in case anyone is like me and watches all these vids that get posted.

Iíll get that sucka some day!

Do any of you guys know your fargorate? It would be cool if we could add that to the scores for fun.

I donít have enough games in the system, but Iíd guess Iím somewhere in the low 600s based on my experiences playing well established 600-620 rated players. Thatís usually a pretty even game. When Iím playing really well, Iíve beaten 700+ established players even on a 9-footer going to 7 or 9 in tournaments, but thatís only every now and then and I have to really be in stroke.

I know easyís, Poolmanisí, and sidepocketís fargorate. Iím kind of low key obsessed with fargorate and I look everyone up if I can find out their name, lol. What amazes me is there are still a lot of really good players out there with no or very few games in system. I know a few guys personally who would be 700 or higher but they have almost no games in system. They donít play leagues and rarely in tournaments...just match up locally and travel.

Played some Ghost between matches while on Snooker tournament. Tourney went nicely and won all my 3 matches 3-0, so 9-0 games. Tomorrow continues with 8-cup.
With 9-ball Ghost with BIH not so good... 9-1
Standard 9ft Diamond with pro cut pockets. Dunno pocket size. they play big because cloth is new. I have to check vid if it is okay. probably have at least mute it due background music.

I only have 40 games in the system. So I guess the jury is still out.

Dude. That's pretty strong. You're just a few "revelations" and all day playing sessions from hitting the low level pro skill level of 700.

I've played in a total of three tournaments (none reported to fargo) in my entire life so it would be impossible for me to have a Fargo.

I do however, play with several players (from time to time) that are in Fargo and they range from 680ish to 760ish.

When playing 9 ball, 10 ball, poker pool and 14.1, ..... I play even with all of them...... win some / lose some.

When playing 1hole and banks, I give a little weight to the lower end but get a little weight from the higher end, especially in poker pool... not many people play poker pool enough to be efficient at it.....I love it!!!!

I tend to stay with 9 ball, 10 ball, poker pool and 14.1.


Don't let your bark be bigger than your stroke.

If I had plenty of money, I would probably lose more often.

I haven't been playing to well here lately but it was a rainy day so I recorded another video. I played terrible but thought I'd post a link just in case anyone wanted to watch.After I quit recording I finally started to play some what better. No need to add this to the front page.

I just this camera in December so I could record and upload the videos to Youtube just in case I want to look back on them.

I believe it. I personally witnessed one of the guys I referred to before beat three guys one after the other with established ratings in the mid 700s in the same night playing even...guy has ZERO games in the fargorate system.

Crazy to think how many players there may still be out there who play that strong and are completely off the fargorate radar.

I have a friend that can play with most anyone rated at 760ish and below and beat their brains out if he catches a gear.

He's never once (that I know of) played in a tournament, not once. He does however "go and watch" one ever now and then.

Some people ask "why wouldn't a person that can play with low to mid-level pros... even-up on most any day and game "not" want to run their legs off chasing tournaments and trying to drum up private matches"???

Well, I can tell you what I "know" to be a fact:

Some, like myself....... dont give a chit about tournaments, who wins them or who beat who.

They also don't have a desire to try to take anyone's money which leads to the reason why people dont see or hear about them matching up for cash and the reasons are:

Some just dont need anymore, they have plenty due to doing something that is almost unheard of in some circles...... it's called having a job/career and not needing a gambler's money...... nor...... give any of their money to them.

I'm no world beater by any means but I know for a fact that there are "unknowns" out there that can give all but the elite a run for their money.

There will always be people that thinks just because of social media etc...etc.. that all the super strong players are well known. Well, this is what I have to say to them:

A fool and their money will soon part. That my friend is a fact.


Don't let your bark be bigger than your stroke.

If I had plenty of money, I would probably lose more often.

My match versus Ghost on Diamond table. Table is just re-clothed so it is playing quite easy. I was playing in Snooker tournament, but when my matches always ended about 1 hour before others, I was shooting pool to not get bored. Day after this Ghost match I won that Snooker tournament with all six matches 3-0.
I wanted still shoot some pool and started some 14.1 training and one Snooker player came to challenge me 9-ball small money matches. I played my best speed and trashed him 4 times 7-0 with whooping 15 run outs out of 28 games. He told me he saw lowest ball 3 times ball in whole time. Too bad I had no camera there. two times 4 pack and once 5 pack
Got break working then.
Anyways here is my 9-1 victory vs 9-ball ghost. Nine ball on spot, 2 behind the rack. I also try always break like there would be kitchen rule. Even I donīt use it versus ghost normally.

Great shooting. If you hadnít came up just short on that five ball you could have blanked the ghost.
