Hi guys it's Max Eberle, and welcome to my official website!
When I was 12 years old I decided that I was going to be a professional pool player. Luckily for me I was pretty much born with a pool cue in my hand because my Grandfather was not only one of the greatest hustlers of all time, my dad, uncles, cousins, and brothers could play too. So you could say I had an unfair advantage growing up.
But it wasn’t easy, I still had to practice and compete hard to get better and eventually my heroes became my friends. Guys like Nick Varner, Mike Sigel, Earl Strickland, Buddy Hall and a lesser known legend, Garten Bierbower.
Since I was that 12 year old kid I’ve ended up beating 19 official world champions in pro tournaments, won national and professional titles, won matches on TV, and traveled the world playing the game I love. I even got to meet guys like Michael Jordan, Kiefer Sutherland, and Joe Rogan to name a few, and work on many Hollywood productions as a pool player and technical advisor.
Now I’m here to help you in your quest to improve. I offer personal video analysis, live ZOOM video coaching, in person private or group lessons, several books, DVDs, and Online Video Courses designed to help you get real good, real fast!
Welcome to my world, and make sure you sign up for all the free stuff before you leave the website. Thanks and I look forward to helping you improve.
“Max Eberle has flawless fundamentals and a deep knowledge of the game of pool. He also has a great understanding of the mental aspect of the game, and is a terrific teacher. I could think of no better person to instruct you in this complex and beautiful game.”
Listen to what Joe Rogan says about how his game benefited from taking pool lessons with Max…
“This DVD has really improved my pool game and I have been playing for years. But some of these tips are exactly what I needed to get to the next level. Just won the High Pockets Nine ball Tournament. Thanks Max!”
“Max has developed a vast knowledge of pocket-billiards that not only works in theory, but on the table where it really counts. Learning his techniques will help players from the beginner all the way up to the more advanced player.”
“Max, Hey, I’m a 20 year old college student and just got your dvd (Powerful Pool with Max Eberle) today and couldn’t stop watching it. I just wanted to say that you made a great product that has a wonderful style of teaching. I really appreciate it! Worth every penny. Thanks! Your fan and student”
“Max, I honestly felt that my pool game had hit a rather large plateau. No matter what it was I tried to do differently, the game just felt the same. Then as if by sheer happenstance I came across your website. Watched your short videos and went through your boot camp and felt I would be a fool not to purchase your DVD set. I have watched them several times to ensure that I have taken in all that you have had to say and show me. My game has improved to heights that I never thought would be possible this quickly. You truly are a master of your sport and I greatly look forward to one day being able to shoot on the same table as you. Thank you for all your help and keep up the great work.
I loved it and would definitely like to see more! I will certainly share with others. Keep up the good work. Your DVD set was the best money I ever spent on pool instruction. Which I have had for more than a year now. It has been a big help to me in both my game and instruction. Thanks again for all you have done to help bring my game back. I love all the videos you send.
Hello, I received the book and DVDs a couple of days ago and wanted to say that the information in them are extremely helpful for me. You do a great job on explaining why things work the way they do and not just saying this is how you do it. The simple references to other sports help the mind absorb why it works. I have gotten as far as the bridges in the first DVD and my game has already improved 20 percent with just stance and stroke improvements. Thank for making the DVDs.
“For those of you who might not have ever seen Max play, he possesses the soundest fundamentals I have ever seen, I would highly recommend any advice/instruction he has to offer.”
“Max, I really appreciate your emails. I find them real informative and I have really benefited from your Powerful Pool DVD. As I have mentioned in the past, your instructional DVD is the best that I have ever bought and has helped me tremendously.
If you put out anything else, I’ll be one of the first to purchase. Without mentioning any names, some put out products just to make money. You put out a product and have a genuinely way of showing the consumer that you care about their success. Within 2 months, my shot making and stroking abilities improved measurably.
I credit you for that Max and I am grateful. I may be 69, but I’m still improving. Please make more videos. Maybe something on kicking and banking (hint-hint). Hope you had a nice Christmas. Best of luck with your game in the New Year and continued success in your business endeavors. ‘Now I’m stroking the ball’”
“Working at it now, realized that when I had changed my stance to the “modern snooker stance” last year summer, it messed up my game. now in undoing all of that and working on my alignment I can feel and see the difference, not coming as 2nd nature yet, however the feeling is coming back as well as the results – only after 2 days! (smiled for the 1st time this year, literally).
Thanks for an excellent DVD, wish I had it before I took the brits advice. Should be #1 on anybody short list of dvds to get.”
“Max, I just wanted to let you know since I have received your tapes I went from an APA 4 TO a 5. I was a 4 for 2 years and just wasn’t getting any better….
What’s up Max! That’s pretty motivating what u sent! I’d say since your drills and all that you’ve sent me, I’ve improved my game by a lot. Although I still have a lot to practice on still. It’s amazing how quick one can forget the basics and fundamentals that are extremely necessary to be consistent. Since all you’ve sent me i would play some small time bar tournaments and would usually place 4th or 3rd and sometimes 2nd!
Now I’ve been winning them regularly and I know I would prefer 9 foot tables I found it much easier on the bar boxes! Anyways thanks for all the advice and vids you’ve been sending me Max! I’m looking forward to what your going to send next! By the way your CDs have helped me improve my game and I see improvements weekly. They are gradual but have put me on the righ path for improvement. I would like to see any drills that you recommend.”
“Max just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed your Powerful Pool DVD. As an experienced player I thought my
fundamentals were good. You have retooled me with VERY positive results already achieved. Thanks!!”
“Max, I purchased the dvd set about two weeks ago. and already have seen great improvement in my game. I have always been a decent player but had reached a plateau and could not figure out why I was not improving.
The answer was the basic …fundamentals that you teach in the dvds. Secrets that I had never learned. Now I am concentrating on aligning my shots properly and all my shots are going in on a regular basis and my cue ball control has also improved greatly.
I recently played a couple of players that I used to have trouble beating and this time I beat them rather easily. Hope there may be another set of dvd’s on the way.”
“Hi Max, Just want to inform you that I have received the DVD. The delay was due to the postal company here. I would also like to congratulate you on the DVD. It is excellent! Regards,”
“Thanks Max. Thanks for working with me on my bridge. A week or so later, and it’s starting to feel more normal to have a really solid bridge. It frees me up to focus on speed, spin and my contact point. It’s odd, but my loose ‘dynamic’ bridge was taking up mental bandwidth, though I wasn’t consciously aware of it. The absence of that diversion is pretty remarkable.”
“Max’s skills are absolutely ridiculous!! Seriously this man Plays and Coaches w the Best of them… Much respect and admiration times X as an absolutely rare talent, amazing soul, and priceless contribution to the World.”
“Yea I’ve been playing heavy for about 3 years now, which realistically isn’t long at all. However I’m the type of person that doesn’t like to waste time. If I’m gonna invest time and effort into something its because i want it to be worthwhile. I have bought multiple books and DVDs over the past few years, none of which really made any sense. The people that made those products know how to PLAY pool themselves, but
Max Eberle TEACHES pool in great detail and I would greatly recommend any aspiring champion to make one more small investment in their game.
Since I bought the Powerful Pool DVDs I have made leaps and bounds in my game that were literally because of the simple yet CRUCIAL information in these DVDs. Simply put: If you want to gain knowledge which directly inverts into skill, buy these DVDs; You won’t be Disappointed!”
“If you are serious about mastering fundamentals, I can’t say enough on how much knowledge Max will impart to you and your game! With a committment to practice You’ll see amazing results, almost instantly!
…Hey Max, I’m getting much better @ finding the aiming/stroking line! today I just threw balls up! and started shooting straight down the rail! It was amazing to me how everything I’ve learned from disc one made the shot feel so much more natural! whether I made or missed the ball! I pretty much made a lot of them, but hey! I’m not gonna sit up here and act like I didn’t miss any! LOL! For me, I am getting the distinct feeling when I am in line with my shot!
I’ve never really had that feeling until a week or so ago! so I know your instruction is working! and I am grateful that someone of your caliber and experience really wants to help ALL players, at all levels! I believe in a couple of months people are really gonna start to notice how I am hitting, and pocketing balls! I still haven’t quite got the stance down but I am learning to put my right toes on the stroking line and I seem to have more consistency, and success!
I am viewing disc two, but realize that I haven’t mastered the basics yet!…. but I’m getting so much useful information, I find myself trying to incorporate it all! I know it all will one day be in place so for right now, I have to keep reminding myself that I have to take small steps to walk, bigger steps to run, and full steps to sprint! Take care! M.E. and I’ll keep you posted!”
“I think Max’s DVDs and the book are the best I’ve ever seen, very professional, thanks Max for sharing!!!”
“Max Eberle puts aspiring and experienced players on the path that will provide the foundation for world class play.”
“I was just re-reading your Zen Pool, its very helpful, thanks!”
Thanks Max. That really makes a better way to look at control and helps in shot making also.
“Just got the DVD “Powerful Pool.” Great material Max!!! Some of the best instructional material I’ve seen and I have seen almost everything.
People You better get a set and Max you better request some more. I used many of your teachings when playing
with a bunch of friends last night and the results were amazing!!! Especially on long tough shots. My ability to make the long shots went way up when I used your alignment teachings. Thanks Max and I’m coming to get a game with you soon. LOL JK”
“Max’s uncanny perspective to analyze and correct flaws in your playing will undoubtedly improve your game; his unique instructional style goes far beyond other pool methods and books in your relentless drive for perfection.”
