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. Today, we are going to be doing some great trick shots. This video is going to be focusing on jump shots. We have some really nice jump shots like the Leap Frog shot or the Jump Bank shot. Let s first talk about the material. Obviously, you need a pool table, balls, chalk and the cue stick. Now, for some of the other jump shots you are going to use a special cue called the jump cue, it is smaller and lighter and we will get it to that later on.

Let s also talk a little bit about safety. With jump shots, it is very easy to have a ball or balls fly off the table. You want to make sure that there are no children near the table that could get hurt or breakable objects that are near the table. As you get more practiced with these shots, the chances of having balls fly off the table, go down but it is always possible. I so jumbled up the table, so you want to make sure that you have a clear area in which to work with. Now let me tell you a little bit about myself before we begin. In the trick shot world, I am known as the Magic Man. I have been on ESPN numerous times, I have 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 let s get to those jump shots.
