    Simply put, this is easiest with two controllers. Start up a game of 8 ball. Put the gamertag you want to get the achievement on the second controller, and a useless gamertag on the first controller. The first controller will shoot first. I simply aimed at where it was already aiming and shot with the power it gives you. Most likely you will sink a ball. If not, restart. Choose solids/stripes if it prompts you (it really doesn't matter unless you can't pocket the 8 ball right away and want to set up a shot - you'll have to sink another ball to get another turn, and in that case you'll want to pick an easy shot / shot that sets you up, where stripes/solids could matter). Pocket the 8 ball with that first controller. Therefore the second controller - your profile - never lost a turn since he never shot, and the achievement should pop.

    If you don't pocket a ball on the first shot, don't sink the 8 ball before the 2nd player's turn, or just hate the setup you're given, simply hit start and quit, and set it up again. I probably set up 15 different games or so to get 5 games where something didn't go wrong. Took roughly 20 minutes.

    DragonFangDanFar better than the other guide. You actually describe what needs to be done. At this point in time it still works with the game updated and online.
