Question If you had ~$60 for one ‘beginner’ DVD... - 09-14-2019, 01:13 PM

Hello all,

Like the title says: I’ve got right at $60, and am looking for one good instructional video (DVD) for a beginner. I’ll eventually build a library but right now I’m looking for a single source to get started. I prefer a video because I want to see what’s going on rather than read

So, if you had $60, what vid would you get for yourself if you were pretty much a beginner?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Oh, I meant to mention DVD or download and watch, like Tor Lowry’s material. But keep in mind I need something for a noobie :-)

pool 101 i dont remember that much...teach me pool does a tremendous job in the material he produces
but pool 202 is a tremendous source of information in one dvd.
combined they are $30.......leaves you $30 for/ towards a one hour lesson with an instructor which i highly recommend

Thank you all :-)

I bought the Jerry Briesath 3 DVD set. Looking forward to it! Depending, I may buy the “Teach Me Pool 101 & 202” set, as my youngest son is learning along with me and I’ll want something for him that goes at a slow and easy pace.

Regardless, I’m confident that I couldn’t have gone wrong with the Briesath DVDs and am anxious for them to arrive.

Thank you!

And that’s a small pet peeve of mine; I normally read the entire thread before posting and I always try to come back and give kudos :-)

I know I am going to get a lot of heat for this suggestion.....

But for an absolute new person being introduced to pool playing, this DVD has a lot of good info and good camera work.
This would be in addition to the other great suggestions, not a stand alone product. Totally for Newbies.

Thank you for the suggestion!

I’ll definitely look into it. We’re going through Briesath’s DVDs and we’ve got our hands full, no question about it

It’s silly probably, but I still can’t seem to find what I feel is the ‘correct’ grip on my cue... I may put up a thread and ask if I exhaust the search and still can’t find something else to try.
