JOE's Trick Shots and Billiards Links 

Welcome to my website dedicated to Trick Shots, Skill shots and Artistic Pool. Enclosed you will find many links to outstanding Trick Shot and Billiards sites. You will not find any sales pitch because I don't sell anything.  It's a great feeling knowing that there are many talented Artistic Pool Shooters and many are willing to share their masterpieces with us all through their own websites.  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.  Feel free to link to this site and to pass on this website to your friends. It is recommended that you bookmark this page for your future use.  ENJOY !

Sincerely,

My Personal Trick Shot Video Clips
I'll show you some old ones and some new ones. Of course I'll only show you the ones I make. I apologize for the sound and lighting quality but I'm still working on them and haven't yet mastered the TV look yet. Remember that a cue scratch is OK in Trick Shots.  I'll let you judge for yourself the difficulty of each shot.

"Also exciting the crowds earlier in the week was Dr. Cue Mr. Tom  Rossman. The Doctors fast-paced, energy filled show always draws tremendous crowds as he grips you with his highly skilled pool artistry and witty lingo.  Again this year, Dr. Cue held his Artistic Shot Making competition culminating  in the 6 th Annual World Artistic Pool Championship. The first challenge Dr. Cue held attracted 80 contestants with cash and a unique Artistic Pool trophy   up for grabs. Doug Moore of Bryan, Ohio captured first place, $198 and an   acrylic award in this first event while Ed Wyse of West Unity, OH captured   second place which paid $132 plus a trophy. Tyler Edie of Red Deer, Alberta   beat out 135 other participants in the second Artistic Pool event pocketing  himself $330 along with a beautiful trophy. Veteran Barry Smith from Freeport,  Bahamas proudly finished in second place pocketing $220 and a trophy. The   third event was to decide the World Artistic Pool Champion. With 8 countries  ready to do battle in the finals, competition got underway. With some great  scores being recorded, and over 100 spectators, everyone anxiously awaited the outcome. In the end it was a battle between Russia and the U.S. with Russian   Dmitryi Kuznetsov capturing the title and beautiful Artistic Pool award. Ed   Wyse from Ohio finished second. Also, $540 was collected throughout the event to be given to the growing VNEA Junior Program."

May Kaarlus   Spectacular turn-of-the-century trick-shot artist

Found at the APA website:  http://www.poolplayers.com/ladies_information.html
"Women accept competition against men in pool with open arms, and have for over a century.  In 1901, May Kaarlus, a trick-shot artist, performed a series of amazing billiard shots in New York City.  Her male counterparts tried and failed to duplicate her shots. In the 1930's Ruth McGinnis, toured with Willie Mosconi. As noted in Ripleys "Believe it or Not" About Billiards, Ruth ran 53 consecutive balls at Alingers Billiards Academy in Philadelphia, Pa.  She was acclaimed the world women's champion between 1932-1940.  During this time, out of approximately 1,500 challenge matches she lost only 29. Ruth was 98% effective against her opponent. From 1967 to 1971, Dorothy Wise won five consecutive U.S. Opens. She was winning the title with a balls-per-inning average of about 2.3, while the top men were averaging six to eight times that number. Today, women professionals continue to make tracks in professional pool. As more women participate in pool, the gap between men and women players continues to close."  Copied with permission from the APA Websmaster/Creative Director

Chas. Paterson:  In May 1935, famous trick shot billiard star Chas Peterson ran 20,000 points at straight rail billiards in 101 minutes, 8 seconds. He scored 100 points in 22 seconds.   (as found on Portland Pool Trivia Page)
 

Captain Mingaud:  In a Paris jail during the French Revolution political prisoner Captain Mingaud discovered that it was possible to exercise a degree of control over the cue ball. When he had completed his sentence, Miguad asked for and received an extension of his term to allow him to perfect his technique. He then took his show on the road, attracting large crowds with a dazzling display of trick shots.    (as found on Portland Pool Trivia Page)
In about 1815, a French political prisoner, Captain Francois Mingaud, discovers the amazing things that can be done with a cueball if a leather tip is put on the cue.
He asks for his sentence to be extended so he can continue his researches. Upon his release he tours Europe giving exhibitions of trick shots that are so dazzling that
some observers see the devil's hand. (as found on Byren's History)

Hans de Jager gets Jimmyed from: Unusual Pool and Snooker injuries http://www.arseweb.com/rupe/pool/injuries.html

(A Bob Jewett contribution to alt.sport.pool)

One of the shots in Artistic Billiards called the "Jimmy" -- I don't know why it's called that -- has you shoot a stick- vertical masse shot near the corner in which the cue ball hits the first ball and then at least four cushions in that corner before coming out to hit the second ball. The shot requires a special technique to get the stick out of the way bacause the first object ball is less than half an inch from the cue ball. You have to pull the stick away from the ball just as you hit it.

Anyway, Hans de Jager relates the story of a competitor at a championship (World? European?) who moved sideways at the wrong time after pulling the tip out of his free-hand bridge on the up-stroke. Took most of a finger off. Blood all over. The other players had to move to a different corner for that shot. Something to think about the next time you feel sorry for yourself for whacking your knuckles on the table. Hans gives classes in Artistic Billiards, and as far as I know has never lost a student.

Billiard Darwin Awards: http://www.onthewirebilliards.com/darwin.htm

For 2nd Place award winner, Hans de Jager, the Darwin Award was the only thing he walked away with during an artistic billiards competition. One of the shots in Artistic Billiards is called the "Jimmy". To execute a "Jimmy", the player must stroke the cue in a vertical masse shot near the corner in which the cue ball hits the first ball and then at least four cusions in that corner before coming out to hit the second ball. The shot requires a special technique to get the stick out of the way because the first object ball is less than half an inch from the cue ball. You have to pull the stick away from the cueball just as you hit it.

Hans de Jager moved sideways at the wrong time after pulling the tip out of his freehand bridge on the up-stroke. Subsequently he took most of his finger off, with blood quickly soaking into the beautiful Simonis cloth. The other players had to move to another corner for their turn at executing the shot.

Lisa Kudrow / Phoebe Buffay
"Friends" Born: 30th July, 1963
This lovely lady graduated from Vassar Collage with a degree in biology and began working with her father Dr. Lee Kudrow, a world-famous headache specialist, before detouring into comedy with the encouragement of Jon Lovitz, a friend of her older brother's.
Fascinating Facts: Apparently Lisa is a killer pool player and can do a fast array of trickshots. She still performs with an improv group called 'The Transformers'.

Here is what he said about it: "Trick Shots
Joe's Trick Shot and Billiard Links - I can not even describe this site. IT IS THAT GOOD!!! Everything you could ever want to know about trick shots, including dozens of video examples. You could spend all day here"
 
 


My Most Wanted List:
    #1    Video Clips of the 1970's CBS Wild World of Sports Trick Shots performed by the Great Minnesota Fats,
                Irving  Crane, Willie Mosconi and others. These are the shows that many of use were raised on and watched as
                kids. I think we all tried to imitate their shots at one time or another. They were our childhood Heroes

    #2    Video Clips of the Steve Mizerak "Just Showin Off" Miller Lite Beer Commericial
            Video Clips of the National Television Show called " Celebrity Billiards" hosted by Minnesota Fats
            Video Clips of Johnny Carson, Jay Leno, David Leiderman, Merv Griffin, etc with billiard players.
            Video Clips of Movies with Trick Shots or outstanding shots.

    #3    Links to other Trick Short / Artistic Pool websites, pictures, graphs, streams and video clips, etc..

    #4   Email and Mailing Addresses of the Professional Billiards and Trick Shot Players (any and all are welcome)
