Bio

Tom "Dr. Cue" Rossman started playing at age 10. He has competed in all levels of pocket billiards and 3-cushion billiards—professional 8-ball, 9-ball, bank, one pocket, straight pool, 3-cushion and "artistic pool" disciplines—since 1977.

Dr. Cue is currently a professional entertainer using Artistic Pool (trick shots and so much more) as his career work. He has been an entertainer for almost 30 years and relates his style to the Harlem Globetrotters in basketball. Dr. Cue is considered a "Table Trotter" in pocket billiards.
