Here's 50 shots you wont see in a pool room everyday! WOW!

This guy plays every shot with ease! Minimal effort, the CB explodes!

Whitey, pay close attention to his, 'close follow & draw shots!'

its amazing how they even come up with those shots.

of course they are trick shots and few ever can come up as this setup with silicone on the balls and the cloth soaked in it probably as well.

I'm pretty sure there is NO silicone on the balls in this video!!!

This guy is a, 'Artistic Tournament' participant, where silicone is ed upon by them!

I believe that but also isn't there something else? Like an extra heated table or livelier rails/balls?

With the 3 cushion game on Virtual Pool 4, you can get some crazy shots like that but to see them done for real, seems almost too good to be true! I don't think I have seen a table that fast ever...

This looks almost surreal. I'm stunned. What a crazy feat and I'm so glad it was filmed. Imagine having a game like this and not having it "on tape." lol

The tables, heating system and balls are all the SAME as used in any world Championship 3C event!

The sanctioned World Artistic Tournament is strictly regulated, with EVERY shot placed in EXACTING positions for every entrant, other than for RH or LH player! There are anywhere from, 65-75 preordained shots, which have a value from 4 points to 11 in difficulty, the player gets 3 attempts to execute each shot. Some of the shots do NOT have to be made 3 rails or more!

NO foreign substance is applied to the balls or table in these events! They clean the balls with just a NON silicone polish, usually, 'Aramith.

Here's a short clip of a semi-final from 2011.

BTW, Ivory balls were used in this event for many years up till about 7 or 8 years ago!

In 1984,(with oversize ivories), I played in a 4 man Artistic event in Chicago, with the same shots as the World events. I finished 3rd. The players were, 1st- Adrian Viguera, 2nd- Roberto Rojas, 3rd- Bill Smith and 4th- Luis Campos.
