Online Instructional Videos for Pool and Billiards

A compendium of YouTube instructional videos that can up your game.

My YouTube instructional videos for pool is a list of 160-some videos I’ve found on YouTube. Out of the 300 or so I’ve watched, these are the ones I found to be the best and most helpful.

At some point, I need to arrange the videos into some usable sequence, or at least put them into groups and order the groupings. (Good rainy-day project.)

Note that the list only includes instructional videos. What the list doesn’t include are the many YouTube videos I’ve watched of the greats playing in tournaments — Efren Reyes, Francisco Bustamante, Ronnie O’Sullivan, Johnny Archer, and Earl Strickland are some of the names that come to mind.

My Amazon FireTV box has a YouTube app, so I can sit back on the couch and watch a pool tournament for a couple of hours. Doing that, you can absorb good stick technique more or less by osmosis — and the more instruction you’ve
seen on technique, the more you can see them doing what you’ve learned.

So I highly recommend both types of viewing.

Shoot ’em straight!
