    Professional pool players Andy Segal and Bruce Barthelette explain and demonstrate some trick shots performed with two people.

    Andy Segal: Hi! I am Andy Segal.

    Bruce Barthelette: And I am Bruce Barthelette. Today we are going to demonstrate tricks shots with two player shooting them.

    Andy Segal: We are going to shoot four shots. The first is something we called the Weave shot, then we are going to move on to Machine Gun Masse Race, follow by the Lightening and Thunder shot and finally a Spinning Rack shot. Now keep in mind, these trick shots are more for the advanced players. So if you just starting out, just be aware that you may not make them right away, you will get a few of the basics of the trick shots down, and as you get better, and better you'll slowly get more and more parts of each shot down, and eventually maybe you'll make them. But for now, if you are just starting out, just have fun with them.

    Bruce Barthelette: Now we always tell people when you're shooting these shots, please proceed with caution, because you will be knocking balls off the table. So if you have children around, you may want them to stay back, as you practice more and more, you will get better, but safety is a concern when doing these shots.

    Andy Segal: But before we start, let me tell you a little about us. Bruce and I were part of the 2006 and 2008 United States Championship Trickshot team. We've also been involved in TV shows, movies, and commercials ,and we both own and operate an American Poolplayers Association League, Bruce in Connecticut and myself in New Jersey. You ready to get started?

    Bruce Barthelette: Let's get started, let's have fun!
