Read What Her Students
And just who am I to praise her so? Well, I am an 80 year old geezer who had only been playing for about two years before I met up with Samm and took some lessons from her. She has taught me to make shots and play more skillfully than I ever dreamed of. Assuming you are younger than me, you should be able to do just that much better with Samm as your pool instructor!
Samm had nothing bad to say about my fundamentals, after some small corrections my game has been improving a lot. Samm is the best teacher since I have been out of school. Samm loves the game of pool and knows her stuff. She is a GREAT asset as a teacher. Take a lesson from Samm you won’t be dissapointed. Thank you for your time and friendship. Look forward to seeing you again!!!!!

Throughout all of her work, such as winning one of her many national titles or conducting her popular free clinic, Samm shows up with enthusiasm and a commitment to excellence that she consistently conveys onto those around her to make every experience an enjoyable and rewarding one for all involved. Most impressive however is the fact that, despite her accomplishments, fame and hectic schedule, Samm is somehow always available for anyone fortunate enough to catch her standing still. Her honest warmth and famous smile have touched too many people to count in our sport. And I count myself lucky to be among them
One of these business people is Samm Diep who has been writing a bi-monthly instructional column in my publication. By the way she has never missed a deadline in the five years that she has been writing for me.
She has been helpful to many billiard players along the way and is very well known in the billiard industry and is always there for the players needs.
We need more people like her.
We have also worked with Samm as a commentator and interviewer for OTBnTV during BCAPL and VNEA Nationals in Las Vegas this past May. She was a great asset to us and was very good on air.
Besides being a columnist/commentator we consider Samm a friend and have been happy and proud to have her associated with On The Break News Group. You can also read her columns online through our website at www.onthebreaknews.com.

As a friend, I appreciate Samm’s sense of humor and her authenticity and as a professional associate, her reliability and drive. Most importantly though, she always seems to be aware of how her actions impact those around her and strives to make every interaction a positive experience. I feel fortunate to count Samm as a friend and look forward to many years of working together, as well.
Samm Diep is truly a diamond amongst those gems!

Testimonials on Writing
Let me start off by saying that you are my idol. I am 12 years old and play 8-ball and 9-ball pool. I am currently writing a featured article at school about the intelligence required to play pool. My teacher told me to interveiw people and I just HAD to try to get a hold of you.
I really appreciate all you do 😉
I too feel the same. Why go for a low percentage runout that I can’t see…. to avoid the catcalls and comments? Not me.
Now I can show my naysayers your article and hope they read it, as you articulated the point so clearly that I have been struggling to communicate to them.
Great questions, Samm!
