I'm happy making 3rd but not so happy how close I was to 2nd
Most likely my last attempt.
Took about 3 hrs.. I always play at 100% power (unless there's a few balls left on table) and break dead center with max topspin.
Left/right spin is very handy when trying to sink the 9ball off a trick shot.

Very great effort who. You certainly have made a huge impact on the table this year. I know this game is a matter of mastering the angles, but somehow even playing 100% power becomes no fun when balls refuse to go down. Still one week to go, but I'm way done with this.

Thanks lifeschool, I know it's very frustrating but don't give up!
Trust me many balls refuse to go down for me to.. At first I was smashing balls around hoping for the best.. but now I take my time on every single shot (except break), hence the 3 hour run.
Remember at 100% power you can see more of where the white ball will travel.. use this with ball spin to make a lot of seemingly 'impossible' shots.

I agree. I was close to beating my best score the other day. It has taken many attempts, but that is always the way in these competitions - the higher the score the harder it is to beat.
I have not given up and hope to scrape a point or two out of this round
