When you watch Venom gracefully defy the laws of gravity and motion, it’s hard to believe that someone so young can possess such advanced skills. Trick shot pool typically takes years to master – most of the top names have been playing since they were 4 or 5 years old.
Yet Venom first picked up a pool cue and began „fooling around‟ at the age of 18, when he received a mini-pool table for his birthday. He learned his first trick shots from videos on the Internet, watching and imitating what he saw.
Not satisfied, Venom quickly moved on to inventing his own, modern version of trick shots. Within two years, he was competing against trick shot pool pros that had been playing since before he was born. He hasn’t looked back since.
This trick shot phenomenon has since racked up a sting of “firsts‟. First to achieve a twin masse, double masse, triple masse, and double jump. Youngest player to ever win an Artistic Cup, youngest player to win ESPN Trick Shot Magic. He is also a two times world cup of Trick Shots Champion, a Guinness book record holder for the most important number of pool balls jumped in a minute (68) and the most viewed Trick shot artist of all times on the internet.
