JB, this is the game of one pocket. If you GAVE him a match you either mean you made a mistake or purposely dumped the game. 1P is a game about either forcing errors in your opponent or capitalizing on their self made errors. Again, you could most likely wipe the floor with me in pool so this isn't some kind of attack/challenge on my part. Most 1P games are lost by someone rather than won by someone.
So saying you GAVE a game really has no impact. Sure, you made a few mistakes, but that's the nature of the game and how it works out. There's no way to determine who is the better player/aimer/etc from the number of games you guys played.
CTE works as advertised in the same way ghost ball does. We as humans have to adapt to the aiming tools we use, it's rather simple and it really is crazy the amount CTE is attacked, even if true that some of the physics are fudged a bit, that shouldn't matter. The best player I know is entirely self taught, if you ask him how he aims he just says he hits what he sees. It's entirely to a level of insanity that the whole fight has gone on for as long as it has. You have to see the shot to make the shot, who cares what system someone uses... Crazy to attack over such a thing.
The calculations to solve a typical rack of 9 ball would probably take a whole notebook if physics are involved. Ball go in hole, ball go where it needs for next shot. Simple, no matter how you make ball go, ball go.
