Joe Tucker

Playing Cue: OB-129 with an OB Pro Shaft (19oz)

Break Cue: BBKC Brown OB Break Cue (19oz)


Joe first started playing pool while serving in the US Army. Upon his completion of duty and return home he stumbled across a monthly tournament in New Bedford, Massachusetts that totally changed his life. As he stood there and watched high level pool up close and personal for the first time he immediately realized he knew nothing about pool and that something must be done about that. Joe then embarked on a journey that would see him become a dominant player in the North Eastern US pool scene as well as one of the most respected instructors and minds in the game of pool today.
