Informative but some choppy video
By Jonathan from Hagerstown, Maryland on November 10, 2013
I like the content of the video and how it is presented. I've watched it a couple of times to help get all of the information. The only knock against it is the subpar video quality. It is a little choppy in places....it is a VHS to DVD port.

How To Play Pool Rught - Right DVD
By William (Bill) Lieberman from Barrington, Illinois 60010 on July 14, 2012
I consider this DVD to be quite helpful in learning how to play Pool. After reviewinf the disk at home,I intend to use it in our Pool Room where I actually can practice the techniques demonstrated by Mr. Briesath.
The last Pool instruction helps I had were a book by Williw Hoppie in 1942 and another book by Willie Masconnie in 1955. Being able to practice the shot immediately after seeinf it executed is a great help over simply reading about the correct method.

Nice DVD
By Tom from New Jersey on March 21, 2012
DVD covers the basics and a few good tips on cue ball control and spin. Good for beginners but also for intermediate players like myself. I learned some things I was not aware of. Good to watch this a few times and also use it when your struggling to get back in stroke. Overall a nice little DVD to have and good price.

By Pat Pace from Fruita, Colorado on September 24, 2011

Covers basics well
By George W. from Long Island, NY on May 18, 2011
Received defective dvd, called customer service and new dvd sent immediately. They didn't have me send back the defective one. I've played many times over the years, not well because I didn't really know how. This DVD covers the basics such as stance, how to hold the cue, how to stroke, and how to apply "english." My game immediately improved after watching the DVD only once.

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Dated Video Does Not Hold Up Well.
By Brophog from Chicago, IL on January 19, 2011
This presentation is 15 years old, and it shows. The game hasn't changed much, so the information is still valid, but the presentation itself is very dated. The biggest problems are how the information is presented and the lack of detail.

When this video was originally made, instructional videos were not nearly as common as today. Like anything else, with more experience the overall product improves. In that light, this DVD shows its age and doesn't hold up well.

There exists a decent amount of content but it is all covered as shallowly as possible. Topics include stance, alingment, stroke, basic aiming and positional play. The aiming section consists as nothing more than letting the user knows the ghostball exists. English is explained in minor detail, but before it is explained why one would want to use English and well before the simpler vertical axis spin techniques are explained. For a video of its age, there is some talk of the problems of deflection, which is nice.

I would not recommend this. There is nothing here that isn't better done on youtube, and far better done in the myriad of instructional DVDs currently on the market.

Excellent video on the basics!
By Emily from TX on January 3, 2011
Even Pros need to go back to the basics periodically. This video is an excellent production with outstanding graphics and simply explanations. I think it is a must have for anyone wanting to get started in the game and also for the experienced player as well. The price is reasonable anyone shooting pool can afford it. It has helped me improve my game very quickly and is one that merits repeat viewings. It also is in segments so if you only have a few minutes, it's easy to watch a few tips at a time. Great Job on this product and Thanks for offering it at such a fantastic deal! I highly recommend this product!

I would recommend this item to a friend.

GREAT FOR BEGINNER TO ADVANCE PLAYER

By Carlos Manas from Woodbridge, Ontario on December 12, 2009

The perfect DVD for the beginning player
By Joe from Cleveland, Ohio on December 6, 2009
This is a great entry level DVD. Everything is covered, from basic stance and stroke, to position play and applying english. The instructor is very knowledgable and conveys his knowledge well. You will want to watch segments of this DVD over and over and over again.
Pros:
Introduces all aspects of playing billiards. Great DVD for beginners, with some good, simple drills to take the beginner to higher levels.
Cons:
Advanced players will probably want more than this DVD offers.

rad
By svd from san francisco on October 7, 2009
this is the dvd version of a rad vhs tape that the bca released in the mid 90's. it teaches you the basics of shooting - stance, developing a system, stroke - and some basic english for cue ball control. i highly recommend it for beginners or people who want to know what's wrong with their stance or some of their shots. i discovered a big flaw in the way i shoot long straight shots after i watched it. correcting it and just having a proper stance has helped me look more solid on the table.
Pros:
- covers all the basic in a concise, digestible way
- fun
Cons:
- vhs duration - 60min
- no dvd menu or extras
- the guy teaching might be a little too much at times
