Florian Kohler was born in France the 10 of july 1988, speaks 3 languages, is a licensed Optometrist and holds a black belt in Judo. Forgot to mention that he is also a pool phenom, redefining the sport of trick shot pool though a combination of artistry and breathtaking skill.
Florian (better known as “Venom”), has an extraordinary blend of unique billiard talent and spectacular shot execution. Venom is trick shot pool at its best.
When you watch Venom gracefully defy the laws of gravity and motion, it’s hard to believe that someone so young can possess such advanced skills. Trick shot pool typically takes years to master – most of the top names have been playing since they were 3 or 4 years old.
Yet Venom first picked up a pool cue and began “fooling around” at the age of 18, when he received a mini-pool table for his birthday. He learned his first trick shots from videos on the Internet, watching and imitating what he saw.
Not satisfied, Venom quickly moved on to inventing his own, modern version of old trick shots. Within two years, Venom was competing against trick shot pool pros that had been playing since before he was born. He hasn’t looked back since.
