watch how table plays. like shit. rails sometimes kill english and cloth is slow. It and 4 inch pockets + pressure and lack of competition lately add up.
I actually thought the bounce off of the rails was perfect on the few highlight reels I saw. Both the speed and the angle. It played like a GC. The pockets I agree were very tight.

If those were 4" pockets, they'd look like this corner pocket.

This is what they are playing on….

I was the one that guaranteed the Million Dollar annuity and he got the money after a legal battle with the Lloyds. The documentary on this is at www.masteringpocketbilliards.com in case anyone has questions or doesn't understand what happened on that historic day.
CJ: I'm curious whether Earl's amazing 9-ball run that day was captured on video? If I'm the insurer I would have wanted any of the run attempts taped, as a pre-condition.
Thanks for any enlightenment you may have time for, and would extend to me and any other folks who may have also wondered about the matter of recordings that day.

I don't have an answer regarding that insurance policy, but I have worked with insurance companies for other offers such as hole-in-one insurance, as well as halftime contests at basketball games (make a lay up, free throw, three pointer and half court shot within one minute to win, for example).

In those policies the insurer can require that the feat be videotaped, or they can have a designee at the event to act as their eyes and ears.

Often the prize for a hole-in-one is a car and the dealership will have a representative there. Sometimes (but not always) they will be up by the green and will check the hole after every group leaves to make sure the hole is empty. They do that because of a scam that was run on a tournament once.

The hole-in-one scam went like this, with the observer at the tee box and not near the green:

Your group plays the hole and leaves a ball in the hole with "Pete" written on it. When it is my turn to play in the next group, the guys in my group distract the observer and make sure that she is not watching. I then hit the ball nine miles sideways, and then start screaming that I aced the hole. My buddies, who act like they saw it, also start jumping up and down and patting my back and using my name a lot. "WAY TO GO PETE!"

We walk up to the hole with the observer, pull out the ball and show her that it says Pete on it.

And yes, that happened. I can't remember how they got caught though.

Yes, we were required to video the last 5 racks of the run. It was done with my own, personal video camera and it's in the documentary.

With the reputation of so many people being able to run so many rack in a row, that it's mind blowing, why is it, that the BEST players on the planet playing in the World Pool Masters event right now, in a race to 7, can't manage to run more than a 3 pack, or has someone finally done that yet? Didn't someone mention Joshua Filler just ran 25 racks in practice before this event? I would think with those abilities he'd have NO problem shutting out an opponent 7/0 with a 7 pack! So what's changed, no ball in hand to start with after the break?
A 25 pack playing the ghost and a legit 25 pack for the money are two totally different things, that's a no brainer

I'm also assuming that these big numbers are coming on their practice tables. On a table they are very familiar with, they can really dial in the break and control the 1 a lot better than on a feature table where they get fewer chances to work things out. In terms of playing the ghost, Darren Appleton has a couple videos on his channel where he runs something like 15 and 20 racks taking ball in hand like it's no big deal.
