Yep, that's how my friends table plays....its brutal.

It plays so tough, my normal 9 ball ghost score to 11 averages 11-8...11-9.

On my 9' pro am, its usually in range of 11-2...to 11-4.

I'm currently trying to put a race to 25 together. I've did it before but, it's been a while. Lol.....I just didn't realize how much my game had fell until I attempted the race to 25 this time (a few days ago).

It's not so much my game that has fell, it's more my "health".

I noticed you have workout equipment. That's a good thing.

Staying fit will allow you to keep your game tight further into your fifties, sixties and even seventies (for some...lucky bastards).

I've not posted my last few attempts at the race to 25 because I wasn't able to finish. I think the closest I've got to finishing this year is 14-? (14 to 6,7,8...can't remember for sure).

I'm thinking of just playing a set to "whenever I fall".....lol.... that way if it ends up being 10,11,12 etc...etc... I won't feel guilty (thanks OCD) about not finishing the race since it will be a "race to the death".....lol.... ,so to speak.

Anyways, yep, people that play on 7, 8 and 9 footers, especially if their tables are not diamonds, have "no idea" how tough your table is.

A 9' GC would have to have (in ballpark of) 3 7/8" corners to be comparable to your table......lol.....and that's not even considering the shelf.

Brutal, brutally and brutalized!!!!!


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

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

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1o91ev_-2fY

I have been playing Snooker and Kaisa due Finnish Champs qualifications. So my pool is weak atm. Just wanted to shoot some 14.1 but sucked at it and then decided shoot one ghost.
I made through qualification on Kaisa Champs and playing Semifinal 25th of may. Next weekend I have Snooker Finnish Champs qualification. Last 4 play semifinal also 25th of May...

CONGRATULATIONS on your snooker and Kaisa play and we hope to see more of your pool soon.

I, like you, have been concentrating on much longer races. Lol..... my back, neck and feet are giving me problems but, I think it is helping my game "in general".

As soon as I'm "physically able" to actually finish a race to 25 I will post it. I will post it whether I win or lose, no matter.....lol.... how bad I do.

I'm just trying to be able to keep my focus and concentration for longer and longer sets.

To me, after playing a really long set, well, a set to 7, 8, 9 or even 11 seems very short.

Those really long-and-grinding sets have a way to make you better.

9-Ball Finnish Champs tomorrow.
Lately, I have been trying to improve my 9-ball break with "kitchen-rule".
That´s why I played some pro ghost without ball in hand.
First one I started with 4 runouts. then Ghost rallied and it went 4-4. Then I had to quit match due visitors.

After they left I started new set and won that 7-3

I try upload it after weekend on YouTube.

Okay. I just was banging some balls yesterday in our club. Then I decided I go play one set Ghost race to 7. I told my buddy, that asked me come play money game in Russian Pyramid that if I miss any shots I come to play. I then played fast and loose and destroyed Ghost 7-0 while talking to my buddies

Anyways I decided to upload that because I´ve been lazy to do anything on my channel.
