RJ Trickshot, a Texan pool player, has become an internet sensation thanks to his
trick-shot videos, which have received millions of views.
RJ TRICKSHOT, also known as Zahidul Islam, has millions of views on TikTok,
Instagram, Facebook, and his YouTube channel.
Zahidul Islam, a 13-year-old from Richardson, Texas, was one of the country’s
“I began playing pool when I was 13 years old, and I never stopped playing even when
I was in college.” “I tried my hardest from the beginning to show the world my skills,”
Zahidul said in an interview.

In addition, Zahidul stated that he spends 20 to 25 hours per week playing pool. He,
on the other hand, considers trick shots to be “very much a favorite pastime.”
“I had no idea how many social media followers I’d get.” “I just kept uploading trick
shots that I enjoyed doing,” he said. He is the first to admit that he isn’t the world’s
best pool trick-shot player. To demonstrate this point, he cites a slew of talented
players who have posted on newer, shorter-form social media platforms.

rehearsal and planning to execute perfectly.
RJ’s trickshot entails launching four balls down the table in quick succession while
leaping over a stick strewn across the table. After a couple of tries, he finally nails
the sequence to hit all four off the diamond into the hole.
Even the tiniest details can have a significant impact on the outcome of one of these
Even the tiniest amount of chalk on a cue stick, according to Zahidul, can influence
the tilting of the cue ball and how it will try to hit others in its path.
