D’Angelo Spain is an 11-year-old African American boy from Bowie, Maryland that has already established himself as a professional pool player. He now plays in billiards tournaments all over the country and is already the top-ranked player in the 13 and under division of the Junior International Championship (JIC).

His parents say that it all started one day when the family went to buy a karaoke machine and D'Angelo asked if they could buy a pool table instead. After negotiating about where they would put the pool table, they decided to go ahead and buy it but they knew they'd have to rearrange some furniture.
