this thread was very useful for helping me get my last achievement. After finding out that you just have to come in under 13 minutes for all the tables I just went back and shaved of seconds at a time playing various tables. Soon enough the last achievement unlocked, thanks to all those who contributed to this thread.
final times
Table 1 00:43.28
Table 2 00:14.02
Table 3 01:26.73
Table 4 00:55.86
Table 5 01:51.01
Table 6 01:14.10
Table 7 01:01.67
Table 8 01:17.96
Table 9 00:10.23
Table 10 01:14.53
Table 11 01:51.03

Total Time = 12:56.22

After reading this thread, I too didn't know it was based on an average. Thought it was all in one go. I'm gonna try to FINALLY finish this game up now! Thanks everyone!!

Some of these suggestions are worded pretty poorly.

Table 2, for instance. What to do here is plainly obvious (You have rows of balls above and below the cue ball) and doesn't really need to be said what to do here. The important advice is the power settings, which aren't mentioned at all. That said, it's not hard to figure out what power settings to use. Oh, and it's a cue stick, not a queue stick.

And the advice for table 10 is a bit off. If you hit the ball at its lowest point or anywhere even close to it, you'll barely even move anything. You got to move up a bit compared to what the instructions suggest to pull things off. Excellent advice though that worked just fine after some experimentation to get things correct.

The advice for table 6 is 100% wrong. For starters, the table has far more than 6 balls (It's the one with a spread of balls in a circular pattern, must be a dozen or so of them). Secondly, there's not even a mention of which ball to aim for to impliment this advice (Which I imagine is for another table, it's clearly not for table 6). Which table were those instructions for?

And the table 1 advice doesn't mention which ball to start out hitting, so I wasn't even able to try it. Which is a shame since there are a good 15 seconds or so there I could gain over doing it the apparant hard way that I did it.

Good advice for table 5, though. But it's hard to pull off. Half the time I'm lucky to get 1 in, or I'll get 3 in and knock the cue ball in as well which is an automatic 10 seconds added to my time. But it still saved me some time, which is all that matters (Although I never managed to get 4 balls in, but 3 after the first shot is still good).

Some good advice, but some of the instructions could use a bit more detail. Within about 40 seconds of getting my achievement now, I figure. What looked to not even be possible seems to be within reach now with a bit more work and some luck.

What's the trick with the table (I forget the number) with 2 balls at each corner pocket and single balls next to the center pockets? I can easily get the center balls in after my first two shots with careful use of the power, but can't seem to get the corner ones in as efficient as I suspect is possible. Sometimes I'm able to knock both balls into a pocket, more often than not, just one.

What's the trick?

Theo, if you are still around, I want to say thank you. I gave up on this achievement 3 years ago, and after seeing this thread I went back to it, to discover I was only about 39 seconds shy of the under 13 minutes mark. Using your guide got me the achievement 5 minutes ago.

For table 11, the best bet is to go full power and put a bit of high right english on your shot, for me it sunk 3 balls off the break for a total time of 1:30:56

Man, I'm glad I found this thread! Thanks to everyone for tips and tricks. While I haven't unlocked the achievement yet, I have got my times close enough to others who have unlocked the achievement.

I think I have one table remaining to clear almost 12 seconds and I got this. Couldn't have done it without this thread.
