In my opinion this is the hardest achievement in the game, so it's gonna be tough! Just like the other career modes you will need to beat all the matches down the middle to progress to the final of each round. When you win the 5 finals, the career will count as complete. The side games are optional but you will need to play some of them to earn enough stars to unlock later events.

The main difference with Master mode is that there is no aiming assist at all. This makes it incredibly hard to tell where the cueball and object ball will go. Nevertheless, I have a few tips which should help.

-Remember to play as tactically at all times. i.e. leave balls over pockets for as long as possible, if you don't think you can pot anything then try to make it difficult for the opponent.
- The AI can still not see plants, so if they have a cluster of balls together near a cushion, leave them there as long as possible to make it tricky for the opponent.
- VERY IMPORTANT - the game will always line you up dead straight with your next shot. This can make some very long pots much easier. If you can, always try to leave the cueball in a position which will give you a nice straight shot on the next ball.
- Get used to using the fine aim by holding cn_A. This is good to use when a shot is slightly off straight and only minor adjustments are needed.
- Try to keep control of the cueball as much as possible, make sure you are comfortable judging the pace of screw shots to help you keep position.
- For Killer Mode, I personally chose to miss the first shot on the break, which meant the computer also had no shot on. They will usually gently break them up, leaving you both with 2 lives. After that you can sometimes pot a ball and leave it in a position which is impossible for the AI. If you can pull all that off it leaves it 2-1 in lives to you which should make it a lot easier to finish.
- Practice! After a while you will get used to judging where the white will go, and it becomes very rewarding to pull off some tricky shots with no assistance at all.

I've added a video showing my final match in the career mode. This clip demonstrates a few of the tips I mentioned, like covering pockets and using the fact it always leaves you straight on the next ball. I know every game is different but this should just help give the general idea.

Please let me know if you have any questions, comments or tips you could also add to the guide. This is a tough achievement and worthy of the high TA ratio, good luck to all who go for it laugh
