Wtf? Without hitting the foot rail, or drawing into the side rail first...or adding non-standard diamonds to the table?

This I gotta see.

Just so we are on the same page, how many diamonds does a standard table have, from foot spot to foot rail?

And the 1000+ was a personal record and not a standard challenge. One of the witnesses said he frequently ran 200 or 300.

Back when they were a lot more common my uncle could throw thumb tacks accurately and stick them in a cork board. Back in the days of tube TV's he ran a one man TV and radio shop. He might have been as lonely as the Maytag man.

Years ago there would be a booth at the state fair to throw nickels on glassware and keep the glassware. I helped a friend win cases and cases. Groove in a toss like a free throw and even the moving targets became just a matter of timing. Then the booth went to dimes. Twice as much for each throw but the main thing was that it was much much harder to throw a dime accurately than a nickel.

I have never lost betting against the pay phone toss. I did usually let drunken cowboys talk me into that bet and from at least ten feet away. I have heard of several people that could toss a dime from twenty feet but never ran into them. Back then you never ever bet that proposition with someone that had been a jail trustee.

I've played one shot enough to make a groove and benefit from it. Try shooting a shot 1000 times. Same cue ball, same object ball, and arrange nappy cloth if possible.

I canít say itís 100% but it seems reasonable, only because I start seeing a line after 10 or 15 shots set up with donuts..I can only imagine that gets more and more intense as you get into the hundos.

Maybe Iíll actually try sometime...but not on my table lol. Iíve got peaks and valleys and rubble to contend with right now

Your Jedi mind tricks are ineffective on me, good sir.

I know what you're thinking. (But you knew that.) It's hard to find nappy cloth these days. Just get some of that spray-on snow for Xmas trees and cover the bed cloth with a light coating. No need to get it on the rails and you really only need to spray the path of the cue ball and object ball. Try it. You'll thank me later.

FYI, I just posted a YouTube video demonstrating the Spot Shot Challenge drill. In the video, I offer advice to those who want to give it a go. I also show my best attempt at the challenge so far with a score of 6 ... a far cry from Skyler's 24. With this kind of thing, I'm sure dedicated practice can yield much higher scores.

Here's the video:

Does anybody know if there is a video available for Skylerís 24? That would be fun to see.

Until I see video proof, I will assume my 6 is the current world record.

I look forward to seeing videos from other AZBíers. If people post higher scores, it will motivate me to try harder also.

Letís see some videos,
Dave
