MAJOR EDIT: According to eViL mOnKeY 270, the latest patch has changed the way the replay frame cheat works. "The glitch still works but not by pausing, going to instant replay and pressing start like usual. Instead as you take the shot to win the frame, hold b and soon as the new frame starts press left on the d-pad to replay the last shot."

To unlock this achievement, win in the final of the 6th tournament, and this achievement will pop.

If you're having trouble, don't forget that you must have aim off, but you CAN set the difficulty to easy.
I advise also loading up the game with novice aim first, and then using the aim of the cue to sellotape a bit of string down the middle of your screen, vertically. This will REALLY help you aim the long shots when you're playing with no aim.

For example, whenever the string is going directly through the middle of the target ball, you ALWAYS know you're hitting the ball full-ball, i.e. completely straight. If the string is going exactly along the left or right most side of the target ball, this means you're hitting the ball at a 45-degree angle. This means you can adjust your aim accordingly, i.e. have the string moving off to the side of the ball for an angle between 45-90 degrees, or have the string between the middle and the side of the ball for a hitting angle between 0 (full-ball hit) and 45 (half-ball hit) degrees.
Don't forget that you can use the 'frame-award' glitch. The glitch goes as follows:

When you're playing, make sure that you do NOT use your two shot-replay lightning bolts in normal play. When you're on the 8 ball, aim it, and when it goes in, and you get rewarded a frame win, and see the next frame ready for the break, IMMEDIATELY press cn_start, 'Instant Replay', and then cn_start.
This will allow you to RETAKE the frame-winning shot. You'll notice however, that you've still got the frame win from the first shot you played.
Repeat this for both retake shot lightning bolts, and this means you can win best of 3 and best of 5 matches by using only one frame.
This also means that the best of 7 and best of 9 semi-finals and finals means you only need to win 2 frames and 3 frames, rather than 4 and 5.
