With all the talk about how good or bad some people play, I think we should post up some videos of how we play. I have several on youtube I will post as soon as I figure out how to.
I think a better idea would be to set up a series of AZ benchmark tests. You would know who passed and failed the tests watching videos linked to their profile.
Then again, that sounds like a recipe for disaster. Chest-puffing is here to stay no matter what.
You look like you are very used to playing on that table. Don't post this in the instructor forum though, one stroking and coming into the shot sideways LOL, good results though :thumbup:
I Have played this way for 26 years and have tried to change I just can't. I had a shoulder replacement in 2001 and have limited mobility in my left shoulder so the longer I stay down the more it hurts. But thanks!
I think beating the ghost is an interesting (and practical) metric of how well someone plays. It would make handicapping easy. I beat the 9b ghost but not the 10b. He beats the 7b ghost but can't go any higher. So he gets the last 2.
But, what do you think a standard 'ghost race' should be? Beating the ghost in a race to 5 is not the same as in a race to 11... or even 20.
I'd think 11 is a good figure, since it's sort of the highest race you'll see in a pro event outside of a TAR match. If you can beat the ghost going to 11, you probably can beat it going to any higher number... until fatigue sets in.
