Customer Stories - "Diamond" Jimmy Reid

Introducing..... "Diamond" Jimmy Reid, whose 3 DVD Set, "Almost All I Know"; over 5 hours of pool lessons and tips for 8 Ball, 9 Ball, and One Pocket, was authored and manufactured by HAVE, Inc.

"Diamond" Jimmy Reid was born August 8, 1946, and as a youngster grew up in Gloucester, Massachusetts - an old New England fishing port and an unlikely town for a top pool player. However, Boston and the Olympia Billiard Room, better known as The Mines, weren't too far away, and there lurked 'Boston Shorty', Bob Ingersol, 'Cuban Joe' Valdez and other veterans of pool action.

Jimmy Reid - Pool Player

Jimmy was gifted with a potent combination of talent, determination, and the confidence to be the best. Jimmy hit the road while he was still a teenager and began to work his way up the food chain among the great young pool players of the time, with names like Sigel, Hall and Rempe. By the time he entered his first Johnston City, Illinois, tournament, he was playing championship level pool. In 1972, Reid stood at the top of the leader board in both the 9-Ball and One Pocket divisions in Johnston City, at the moment it was raided by the FBI. As one of the detained players, that raid cost him the chance to win the One Pocket crown that his good friend Jimmy Fusco ended up winning.

Jimmy Reid is a past US Open 9-Ball champion, and winner of numerous other professional tournaments, yet he considers ring games and after-hours action to be where he played his best pool. His best games were 9-Ball, and especially 10-Ball, but Jimmy was a fearsome One Pocket player, with an explosive offensive style of play.

In recent years Jimmy has inspired a whole new generation of players to both play their best, and bring their best attitude to the table, through his popular videos and his website, freepoollessons.com. Jimmy credits his father for both his natural athleticism, and his positive attitude; his dad having been a champion boxer before he was seriously wounded during WWII.
