Total Awards: 6 (more» ...)
Well Rounded - 5
Complete a game of 8 Ball, 9 Ball, and Snooker.

Probably the simplest achievement and one of the first you will get. You just have to play each of the 3 game modes available (8 Ball, 9 Ball & Snooker). Win or lose it does not matter just as long as you finish the game.

Grasshopper - 10
Defeat Pro opponent in any Single Player game.

There is no real advice here for this one except try not to let the CPU not have many turns, none if possible. You change your difficulty by sliding the star difficult bar at the bottom all the way to the right.

This achievement will come whilst going for "Running Man", "Midnight Run", & "Eagle Eye". So there is no need to try to hard if you set the game to pro whilst going for these.

Sink or Swim - 5
Sink 100 legal balls.

See "Time Sink" achievement.

Time Sink - 20
Sink 1000 legal balls.

Sinking a ball is to pot it, the ball must be legal (i.e. your colour/number ball). This achievement is cumulative. This will come naturally with playing the game. But to give you an idea of how long it will take roughly:

8 Ball: 125 games sinking all 8 Balls (7 Colours/Stripes & 8 Ball)
9 Ball: 112 games sinking all 9 Balls
Snooker: 46 games sinking all 22 Balls or 28 games if you pot all 22 balls and a colour after each Red.

Balls still count once Returning to the main menu whilst in game.

Running Man - 10
Run the table (8 Ball)

To run the table you must pot every single ball without the opponent getting a turn (this means you have to break). There is not much advice that can be given here except take your time, line up your shots as best as possible (thinking ahead for the next shot if you can). Also don't forget to change camera angles with the eye in the bottom left corner. Having a look from on top can be a great help.

Midnight Run - 15
Run the table (9 Ball)

To run the table you must pot every single ball without the opponent getting a turn (this means you have to break). Unlike "Running Man" this can be achieved in one shot by potting the 9 on the break. So this should unlock whilst going for "Eagle Eye".

Remember to take your time, line up your shots as best as possible (thinking ahead for the next shot if you can). Also don't forget to change camera angles with the eye in the bottom left corner. Having a look from on top can be a great help.

Sure Shot - 5
Sink 2 legal balls in one stroke.

See "Master Blaster" achievement.

Master Blaster - 15
Sink 3 legal balls in one stroke.

This is one of the more difficult achievements to get and once again seems heavily based on luck. Whilst going for "Jet Setter" & "Fat Cat" you hopefully should get this in one of your games. If not IEvil IMonkey has try providing some tips on how to get it here: http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...81&postcount=2

Sniper - 10
Sink the 8 ball on the break (8 Ball).

See "Eagle Eye" achievement.

Eagle Eye - 5
Sink the 9 ball on the break (9 Ball).
