I have lived in South Florida for the last 20 years, originally from the suburbs of Chicago. Pool has been a part of my life from young age when my Grandfather taught me to play straight pool. My career has spanned from being a district manager in retail to an executive in the insurance industry. My passions in life are my family, my dogs, and pool. I spend my free time with the family and hosting/ tournament directing pool events in Palm Beach County.
Tony Vierra grew up in Northern CA. He was first introduced to billiards at a very young age as his father started teaching him how to play. As he got older, his drive for the game only got stronger. As Tony got better he began to practice more and more. He would start spending a lot of time at the local pool hall to fine tune his skills. When he was 18 years old he started working in construction. One day the pool hall owner realized Tony was watching a pool table mechanic closely at work on the tables in the pool room. When the work was completed the pool hall owner called Tony to the desk for an offer. He offered Tony a job on bartering. If Tony would consider learning how to do the work on the tables and would work behind the counter from time to time, he would get free pool time and food anytime he was there. This was a “no brainer” to Tony. He kept his day job in construction flipping houses but became a pool table mechanic by night. When Tony was 22 years old he started moving east. Over the next several years, he would find his way to Boynton Beach, FL. Still working in construction and still playing pool, Tony crossed paths with Jeremy Brooks. Jeremy and Tony played in the same pool league. Jeremy mentioned he was a pool table mechanic and he was going to be recovering the pool tables in the pool room over a weekend. Tony offered to give Jeremy a hand as it had been a long time since he was able to work on tables. Jeremy accepted Tony’s help, then took him under his wing and fine-tuned his skills, as he noticed how much Tony enjoyed it. Over the next year, Tony would help Jeremy more and more. It lead to Tony joining Jeremy at Boynton Billiards full time and turning a hobby into a full time job.
