Florian Kohler is a magician and the pool cue is his wand

June 8, 2018

While Venom Trickshots IV: Ep 1 “Dark Magic” may not contain any actual “magic,” per se, I think these impressive trick shots definitely deserve to stand amongst the other feats of skill we feature on GeniiOnline. Particularly that shot at 1:41. Wow.  

French pool trick shot player, Florian ‘VENOM’ Kohler, is well known for his ability to do absurd things with pool and billiards balls, including curving them like something out of a Bugs Bunny cartoon. He’s racked up (ayyyy) over half a million subscribers and more than a 100 million views on YouTube. The fact his videos also tend to contain handsome assistants lounging around the pool table probably doesn’t hurt his popularity on social media either.  

Come to think of it, why haven’t we seen more trick shot players making it as stage acts? It isn’t that dissimilar from other feats of skill like archery and knife throwing, and Kohler even already has his own waistcoat. 

As the title of the video implies, this is just the first episode of an ongoing series of trick shot videos. We’ll let you know when new videos are uploaded.
