STEVE MIZERAK PCKT BILL TIPS TRICK12-248
Champion pool player Steve Mizerak, star of the well- known "Just Showin' Off" Miller Lite beer commercial, really shows his stuff in this delightful book. Brimming with humor- ous anecdotes and straightforward advice, the multitude of trick shots Steve teaches can bring out the champion in you. Steve calls his trick shots "the really fun part of pocket billiards." So his book is filled with page after page of clearly diagrammed trick shot instructions. Steve even rates the difficulty of each trick, to make the book as accessible to the novice as it is to the advanced player. This book offers an abundance of Steve's tips on the game, from ratings of tables and cues (by brand name) to discus- sions of grip and stance, to advice on increasing self- confidence. Steve also explains (complete with more tips) many popular games of pocket billiards. The art of pool hustling surely ranks with the most hotly debated aspects of professional pool-playing. Steve tells all in this one-of-a-kind book, including how to defend against hustlers-and how to pull off some "innocent" hustles your- self! Steve Mizerak, former 7th grade teacher, began playing pool at the age of four. He has since won the U.S. Open Championship four times, the Billiard News Open Champion- ship five times, and the New Jersey State Championship eight times. In 1980, he was the youngest player ever to be inducted into the Billiards Congress of America Hall of Fame. Steve's first book, Inside Pocket Billiards, was also published by Contemporary.
