The Challenges can be found, in the Practice option from the Main Menu. (The same area for the Coach (tutorials) and Trick Shots.

There are a total of 10 challenges and you need to complete them in order as they remain locked until the previous one is beaten.

Most of the challeneges are ok and require an average amount of skill to complete, I was able to get them without too much trouble after completing the tutorials, but the last 2 challenges (Clear up & Never give up!) do require skill.

Clear up
This challenge requires you to clear the table, potting all balls up until you only have the black left. There is no point going for a 147 during this challenge as even if you do get 147, you will not open the getting a 147 achievement.

I started by taking the loose red into the middle pocket, adding some extra power and back spin, so the white ends up near the bottom cushion. From here there is a natural angle to split the pack when taking on the black. Don't be tempted to full power this shot, or you will find that you end up with a red going into the bottom left pocket. It's only just into the challenge so I just retried until I got a reasonable pack split, and went from there. I did take me many retries to finally get it, as I would often leave myself an awkward shot into a middle or corner pocket to keep the break going.

I also got in the habit of taking on the tougher reds earlier on, rather than leave them to last as you would do in a real match, as if you stuff it up, you haven't wasted lots of time getting to that point.

Never give up!
This is easier then Clear up, as you just need to win the frame in 1 visit, so you do not need to pot every ball.

Take the black on, and again split the pack, work you way around and try to get back onto the black with a nice angle to split the remaining balls in the pack, and give yourself lots of easy potting and positional options.

I ended up taking lots of baulk end colours as I had several red's up that end of the table. If got to 61 points with 59 remaining and they conceeded the frame.

I had spent the points I had from the tutorials to mainly improve my potting & position stats, whether this has an effect on your abilities during the challenges is unclear, but if you are really strugling, move onto the Trick Shots or play some pool / snooker, build up your stats and own experience and try again.

As you can see I haven't included any technique advice, as this is explained in the tutorials, but like a professional would, try to think about shots in advance, and always try to get a good white position.
