Thanks again for the advice, I will use the same rules except, I will put the 1 on the spot. Maybe I can get some time on the table this weekend. I will post my results.
Looks like you have the same amount of room around your table as I do. When the CB is against the long rail and I am shooting perpendicular to it, I only have room for about 2" of pullback. I have a shorty cue hanging on the wall for the times I need to put a good hit on the ball.
Ridiculous. 4” pockets, 9 on the spot, break box, no ball in hand, automatic loss if he breaks dry. Almost won, and says he played his “C” game. Goes to show just how much better the top players are compared to us recreational players.Gorst's recent stream vs the ghost. very tight pockets.
Or, slightly different way would be to start, let's say, with 5 Balls, rack them, break and always have ball in hand, balls you made stay down. You play to 5 (or 9, if you want). If you run out: +1, if not -1. When you get to 5 twice, you add one ball. If you get to -5 twice, you remove a ball.I might suggest using less balls. I’ve started playing a lot of 6 ball ghost myself. I break a 9 ball rack and remove the lowest balls to leave 6 on the table. I think there’s something to be said for practicing a level of ghost that you have a high success rate against. My Fargo is currently 657 and I still don’t have to win playing that way, but I have a much higher success rate and it allows me to practice doing things that are within my skill level at a higher standard, rather than being overwhelmed looking at a congested table with multiple issues to deal with. Just a thought. I feel like it’s done good things for me, personally.
I also played vs GOD week ago but only race to 7. my pockets are close to 4.2. Good thing we don´t have so deep shelves as Diamonds.Gorst's recent stream vs the ghost. very tight pockets.
I like myself most to playing 15-ball ghost too. I can win race to 7 but most of time lose 3-7 or 4-7.Or, like Imran Majid said on commentating the Connecticut Open: he plays 15 Ball rotation against the ghost. Teaches you also how to kick and bank, especially with the first balls. I think he said he is not winning that one, at least not often.
