JOE'S  BILLIARDS AND POOL  LINKS

Welcome to my Billiards and Trick Shot Web pages. Enclosed you will find many links to outstanding Trick Shot and Billiards sites. I composed this site because I was tired of having hundreds of bookmarks/favorites regarding Trick Shot and  Artistic Pool and wanted one reference site.  None of the pictures, videos or associated links are stored on my computer except for my own. You will not find any sales pitch or money mentioned because I don't sell anything.  Its a great feeling knowing that their are many talented Artistic Pool Shooters and many are willing to share their masterpieces with us all.  I regret that I have not asked all linked people/corporations for permission to link to their sites but I am doing it out of good faith to further our pool playing obsessions.  Some of the links will require that you have a video driver(.avi,.mov,.mpg,.ram)  or acrobat (.pdf) reader.   If you should have any questions, comments or want links added/removed from this site please do not hesitate to contact me. I am always willing to add more Trick Shot links if you want to share yours with the world.

Sincerely,
Joseph Whalen
