This is gonna hurt
Venom is very good as what he does. That is, try over and over to do something very difficult on equipment that favors what he's trying to do. I'd imagine he would. Last very long in a tournament full of B players because that's just not something he does (that I'm aware of). Pocketing balls and getting shape over and over is a different kind of skill.
I'm sure if he attempted to become a regular pool player, he'd have a great stroke and become rather good quickly. And you wouldn't wanna get into a safety battle with him.
Absolutely at the skills he specializes in he's great. Something has to give. Ask Shaq how his free throw shooting was.
