Andy Segal

2007 World Trick Shot Champion

www.andysegal.com  

I have been playing pool since 1983. I started performing trick shots in college, back in the late 80's, but I have been competing in trick shot competitions since October of 2002. I was invited to ESPN's Trick Shot Magic for the first time in October of 2003, when a good friend of mine Bogdan Wolkowski from Poland dropped out at the last minute due to an arm injury. Once I started competing in the trick shot tournaments, I stopped playing 9-ball and never looked back. I have worked as the technical advisor of Sweet & Lowdown, a Woody Allen film starring Sean Penn. I have also filmed a couple of commercials, one for All Detergent and one for AT & T, both obviously involving pool and trick shots. I also did a 12 week segment for Spike TV called Bikini Pool Shark. I have also worked with Ewa Laurence and helped her prepare for the 2004 and 2005 Women's ESPN Trick Shot Magic tournament. Ewa's excellent talent, along with coaching from myself and Bruce Barthelette, helped her achieve a second place finish in 2004 and a win in 2005. In addition to pool, I am an amateur magician. I play Go once a week in a club near my house, and online a few times a week. I enjoy playing poker, both live and online. I am also in the computer business. I own and operate a website company Magic Man Web Services LLC, which currently hosts www.artisticpoolplayers.com. I am the reigning 2007 World Trick Shot champion.

Andy Segal: Hi, I am Andy Segal, and today we are performing some great trick shots. In today s video we are going to focus on bank and kick shots, where the cue ball travels around the table like the Japanese gate or the chain reaction shot. First let s talk about material, obviously you need a pool table, a set of balls, chalk and a pool cue and sometimes we will need other props. For example, the Japanese gate shot, we will use an extra cue stick as a prop. Now, I want to talk a little bit about safety. On some of these shots you may be hitting the cue ball quite hard and it s always possible that it could fly off the table. You want to make sure that there are no children around or breakables near the table when you are first starting out. As you get more practiced with the shots and better at them, the chances of that happening are pretty small. But first, let s tell you a little about myself. In the trick shot world, I am known as the magic man . I have been on ESPN numerous times, I worked in film, TV and commercials and I also own and operate an amateur pool league, the American Poolplayers Association out of Hudson County, New Jersey. So you ready to get started, now lets get to it.
