The whole trick shot gig is pretty much political now.... Ask some of the older artists about the situation and you will be sickened by their responses...

Artistic Pool should take it's place imho...

Chris...Artistic pool is the generic term for any kind of trick shots, pool or 3-cushion. Trick Shot Magic is a particular television event that is an invitational, just like the Challenge of Champions, another Matt Braun production. Artistic pool is alive and well. There are several events run all year round, that are open to anyone.

was trying to refer to the genre where they have a set of shots for each discipline of Masse, Draw, jump etc. http://artisticpool.org/game/shots/

The bouncing rubber balls into cups x number of times while jumping up and down on one foot while rubbing your tummy and patting your head and stroking something simple made otherwise by all the gyrations has got to go....

I got to admit that the prop type shots are not my favorite, but for non players it is interesting. It's funny how that works but I grantee you that people who do not play will stop to watch someone shooting a jump shot into a miniature basketball goal before they will watch two guys actually playing a game. It's the gateway drug of pool.

Seriously though, how many players got involved in pool because they saw a trick shot show at a pool hall of tv show. I know I was one of them!

I agree with this. I would also throw in all the shots where you have to do something simple multiple times in x number of seconds and any shot that involves holding more than 1 cue at a time as things that seem gimmicky and cheesy.

Why not just say the player's name,instead of being vague?
