Trick shot legend, Mike Massey, was in Sarasota, Florida at Rusty Hook Tavern on Sunday, April 17th to conduct a trick shot exhibition. He also played in “Challenge” matches against two Sarasota ACS Pool Players. Jeff Brooks, from Eagle 1, and Jim Smith, from Shoot or Die, both got an opportunity to try and sink the 8-ball against Mr. Massey.
Jeff’s break shot resulted in a scratch. Mr. Massey made quick work of the table, never giving Jeff a chance at the table. Jim had a great game against Mr. Massey. He ran down to one ball left on the table before giving Mr. Massey his first approach at the table. A quick miss gave Jim one more chance to defeat the former World Champion and Trick Shot Magic Champion. Jim missed a bank shot in the side pocket on the 8-ball. Mr. Massey succeeded in running the table out and winning the match.
Mr Massey put on a trick shot exhibition after all the “Challenge” matches. He wowed the audience by making many famous trick shots including his trademark shot of jumping the cue ball off the table and into a cowboy boot.
