Here's the video. I finally got some rhythm and focus after dogging one 9 ball. The end is classic, caught a side pocket point on the way down and got hooked. When in doubt, ride the 9!

9-Ball Ghost Challenge 7-0

Hello Brothers,

Well, it took me longer than I anticipated. If anything could go wrong in a match it happened here, racks 6 & 7, but somehow, by the grace of the Good Lord, I pulled it off. Here is the match, 7-0.... 9-Ball ghost challenge. Hope you enjoy.

GHOST CHALLENGE RULES:
(Rules in bold are different from last year)

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)

Played 3 sets today.

Lost 3-7
Won 7-4
Won 7-6

Got the 7-4 recorded, but my phone died during the 7-6 win. Which is unfortunate, because I came back from being down 4-6. Break hill-hill, make 5 balls (including the 9 which spots), and ran out for the win.

When I edit my videos I mute the sound. Only way I have found for me that it works on youtube, without any hassle. It sucks to be silent, but it is what it is.

Where'd my stroke go?

I think putting on pool videos in the background is a great idea... or maybe some instrumental music or something that wouldn't be affected by copyrights.

...or if you're a bad singer, you can just sing along and youtube's music search robot won't recognize the song.

It's the music. It'll block it for people in other countries.

Good shooting by the way. You're older than I thought. What are you, like 78? :p

Yes, so show some respect for your elders, because some day you may be able to play that good too.

I did play 10-ball pro Ghost today and beat him 7-6!! Woohoo.
I had chance to go 7-5 but i dogged it. Managed to do best break to hill hill and run set to home.
My break timing was therebul today but I was quite lucky to see 1-ball quite often.
I got it video and I upload it probably tomorrow..
