8 Ball High Score

How in the world does Bocofiddleworth, Neal and a few others get 37000, 38000 points all the time?

I got lucky one time and got 37000. Wish I new their secret.

high score is a farse. Have run the table many times and most highest score is mid twenties. Sinking the 8 ball in right order, like real pool game, is true measure and denotes a champion.

I do not know. I have sunk the 8 ball on the break (no other balls pocketed) before and received zero points for doing so. The 8 ball was simply spotted and computer got next shot. I "think" the key is to make as many balls as possible on the break, like 4,5 or so, then run the table. I have not really figured it out either.

When I got 37000 points I got 6 on the break (which I usually get anywhere between 4 to six on the break) then I made 4 in one shot (with luck) and then ran the table and only got 37000 and that is playing over 400 games on hard level. these guys are getting 37000, 38000 all the time? I have run the table many times and still only get 35000 0r 36000 even sinking 5 or 6 on the break. And I have also sunk the 8 ball many times on the break and it just puts it back on the table. Thanks for the input, Take care.

I have no idea how you get that many balls on the break consistently. Most I have ever gotten is 4 out of maybe 250 games. Good shooting!

To get 4 to 6 on the break is the easy part. Put top right spin on the cue ball somewhere between the top and middle right. Move the ball to the left a couple of inches behind the line and away from the side of the table. Put your break to the left of the 1st ball just a tad bit so the ball looks like it will go to the left, and hit it full force. Mess around with the tad bit part. It doesn't always work but more times than not I will sink 4 to 6. But that isn't what gets you 38000 points all the time I don't know how the few others do it all the time?

Good Luck!
