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 location's tournament in Hard difficulty, and this achievement will pop.

If you're having trouble, don't forget that you can have full aim on, all you need is the difficulty set as hardcore.

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.
Mr McCrayCrayJust got this, and I'm not sure if everybody figured this out already, and it just took me a long time to figure out, but if you press cn_A repeatedly, you can skip watching the computer play. Also, that glitch is a lifesaver clap

ParadoxReal8This game difficulty is really ridiculous. I just lose 3 games in a row with 3 rounds each without even the possibility to do a move.

MUFFINTAST1CTo anyone that’s questioning “Does the glitch work still?” Yes, yes it does as of 2019. If you follow the instructions posted by the OP you’ll find it works flawlessly and makes winning frames easy. laugh
