I don't understand that you started with BIH and chose that bank as your first shot? Maybe you meant no BIH?
Gotcha, thanks for the explanation. Great shooting.Thank you all.
Normally One Pocket Ghost is played either without ball in hand with a break like this (played by John Schmidt) or with a very aggressive break and BIH after the break. (Here is an example for the second version, played by Joshua Filler).
Since this run didn't start with a regular One Pocket break and continuing w/o BIH I put it under BIH-Version in my personal record book.
We were practicing the 99 Critical Shots In One Pocket from Pool Monsters with Sandor. So the starting situation was a simulated One Pocket situation from Shot #30 (banking the 13 from the point to your pocket).
Nice shot to practice since it puts the CB safe behind the rack and gets the 13 ball often enough to your side of the table. Actually pocketing the ball is obviously very low percentage. I needed probably around 20 tries to pocket it the first time. But it didn't look good on the video, since I froze the CB on the stack. So we went for another try with more left english to have the 1 after pocketing the bank.
So after another dozen tries (with BIH) I did pocket the 13 with position on the 1 and than just continued shooting to see, how many balls I could run. Got very lucky twice to be able to shoot after running into the stack (after ball #3 after pocketing the 8 and then again after pocketing the 3 (see picture below).

was hoping to miss the 9 and split 7and 12 to have the 7 to continue the run. Got very lucky to have the perfect path for a bank on the 5. After that felt very good for a chance of running all 15 balls.
That was fantastic! My favorite shots were the first shot of course, and the 9. “It’s automatic. I have never missed this ball!” Bravo . Really great!!!
