5-Yr-Old Pool Prodigy

Wednesday, March 29, 2017

Meet Keith O’Dell, a bonafide pool playing prodigy. At just five years old, Keith pockets balls like a pro. The sport is in Keith’s genes – his parents play pool, his grandparents play pool, the family even eats dinner on the pool table. His father says Keith was “born to play pool.” The question is, how will his incredible talent effect the life ahead of him?

  17. Dale Andrews says:

    The great Willie Masconi started in a similar way. He was shooting pool before he could stand up and to reach table, having to stand on a stool or stack of boxes. For those of you who don't know, Masconi was the greatest pocket billiards pool player that ever lived. He held the World's championship for nearly a dozen years back in the 40's and 50's. He still holds that World's record for the number of racks(and balls) run without a miss. It was several hundred; don't have the exact numbers.
