Interview with Matt Krah: Number 1 Ranked on Mezz Tour. ~ “Mighty” Joe Young

Joseph Young had the chance to sit down and interview Matt Krah, who is ranked number 27th men’s professional and number one ranked on the Mezz Tour.

Hi Matt,

Tell me a little about yourself:

Q: Where are you from?

A: Newark, Delaware

Q: Aside from your professional career in pool, do you have another occupation? If so, how did you get into that? How much time do you spend there vs practicing, competing, promoting pool?

A: Besides pool, I work in sales and marketing for a manufacturing company in Delaware called Wilmington Fibre. I started working there right out of college. I work a normal eight hour day Monday through Friday so it can be hard to put time in on the pool table, but I try to practice at least a few nights a week and play in as many tournaments on weekends as I can. I wish there was more money in pool so I could just focus on my game and play in all the international events but bills come first.

Q: What are some of your hobbies outside of pool?

A: I love to Fish, golf, play and watch sports and play video games.
