This is not too hard. It's easiest to do in the first couple of minutes of the frame. A good break, sinking 2 or 3 balls, will help, and thereafter you need to take your shots swiftly but accurately, not missing, earning frequent drop-stops as using them as soon as you get them.

So, here's how to get a good break: Leave the cue ball in the centre, and don't touch the aim. Drive right through the frontmost ball with full power and full top-spin. You should pot a couple of balls.

When the balls have come to rest, try to focus on long shots. Quickly look round to see if there are any long, reasonably straight shots. Pot them with decent power and a little backspin if needed (to avoid following the object ball into the pocket on dead straight shots).

The reason you want to focus on long shots is you get a lot more points for them, filling your drop-stop meter much faster, giving you more drop-stops, and more time to clear the table. For the same reason, use any obvious opportunities to play combination shots. For example, if there is a ball over a pocket, knock another ball onto it rather than potting it straight. You'll get more than double the points and might even pot both balls.

As soon as your drop-stop meter is full, an alarm goes off to tell you. Trigger it immediately (press B). As well as stopping more balls appearing, thus taking the pressure off, it'll make the cloth dark grey, making shots far clearer. Keep cool and despatch those balls efficiently. It is likely you'll pop the achievement during a drop-stop period.

Keep this up and you'll get it in no time. You may even do it before the second colour of ball starts appearing, but even if you don't, keep at it. It's possible to get it for a while yet. I have cleared the table long after the 6 minute mark.

If there's anything you feel I've left out, please comment before voting down.

Thanks and good luck!
