Welcome to Jane’s House!

Greetings and Salutations!

Welcome to Jane’s house! In this house, we are polite, respectful and expect to have some good clean fun. I’ve come across some interesting folks and fantastic shots on this Pool-adventure and I don’t see it slowing down anytime soon.

I felt the world needed a better resource for poolplayers and poolaholics everywhere.
Pool is one of those sports (and yes it is a sport!) that unless you are there, it’s tough to show someone how it went down. No amount of explaining or drawing on napkins really does the shot you just made justice. They just won’t get it…Maybe if they play and if you can explain it right, they will get an idea of how amazing your shot was…but more often than not you get a lot of “un-huhs” and polite nods. With technology today, I’m pleased to present some of the finest shots in pool by some of the most inspiring players around the country and in the world.

On this site you will find highlights of players, tournament schedules, product reviews, Opinions about Pool and anything and everything I get a notion for. I encourage you to explore the videos, watch the players, learn some new shots — if you’ve never seen it, how likely is it you’re going to remember it in the middle of a game? Engage, make comments, play in tournaments, sponsor players and grow the sport.

So as I started with, Welcome to Jane’s house. #wehavefunhere. It’s not about winning or losing, it’s about playing the game. Once upon a time I was a minnow too, and with hours of practice, an open mind and some very patient friends, I’ve started to swim with Sharks. I have long since started a torrid love affair with this often unpredictable game and through the ups and downs, wins and losses, perfect shape and JaneShape shots and the end is no where near. We will not go softly into that goodnight – we will rage, rage against the light!

XoX,
Jane

Hi, this is @catannc and I just #taught her to #jump. She is a new #APALEAGUE 4/4 and improving at an #incredible pace πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
She tried out a couple other jump cues, but the #PredatorAir2 was by far her #favorite. #itssoeasy! 😜
After talking her through the #stroke and #floatingbridge, you could see the #intense #focus she had on every detail and she #executed #perfectly on the very first try. 
A few shots later, we set this one up and on her second attempt, she #drilledit too!

After 2 days of #nonstop #action I am out. 9-12th out of 103 players at the #NAPA National #8ball #championships. I made it to the hotseat of my bracket, and proceeded to dog my brains out after being up 4-2 I lost 4-5 and then got crushed on the left side. #brutal end to the day. 
There are 4 brackets, I played in the A bracket, and if I could have just gotten that last game in the hotseat match... well if wishes were fishes, we’d all be fishermen. #darnit I hate going out like that. 
Chalk it up to #Poor #player management I guess. All I know is after 14 hours of pool I am exhausted. 
It’s been a long while thanks to the #coronaviruspandemic since I’ve played a big event, and I’m proud of the way I started off. 
Tournaments are a lesson in #endurance, and this was a #toughone. 
#great #poolplayers, #excellent displays of #sportsmanship all over the place, and it was a very well run event. 
Thanks #cheryljones and the #napa folks that ran the event and of course to  @feltbilliards for hosting an #insane number of players all weekend! 😎

#nickolusRodgers posted this today and some of y’all need to hear this:

Here are the top ten ways to play pool: I feel like this needs to be said!

1. Find a seat and sit in it.

Unlike in "The Color of Money", where there were no chairs at the pool tournament and both players stood at the table, serious pool is played with only one person at the table at a time.

2. Watch the small talk.

If you're a #chatterbox and you're getting monosyllabic responses or the stink-eye from your opponent, chances are he or she would rather play than listen to your commentary.

3. No drinks, butts or buttocks on the table.

4. #Chalk with class.

The proper way to chalk is to hold your cue in one hand, gently swiping chalk onto the cue tip with the other. Don't twist or spin the chalk on the cue or vice versa. Make sure to put the chalk back on the table business side up - if you don't, the rails will be covered in blue dust and so will your clothing.

5. Easy on the white powder.

6. Mind your stick.

Please don't be "that guy." You are not Tom Cruise and a pool cue is not a Samurai sword, a baton or a baseball bat. Make sure to rest cues in a secure spot; Cues propped up against the side of the table will fall over.

7. Know the rules of the game.

If you are playing in a league or tournament, take the time to familiarize yourself with the official rules. If you are playing casually, make sure to agree upon the rules before hand to avoid conflicts later.

8. Be on your best behavior at leagues and tournaments.

We pool players take these things very seriously. Be extra careful not to move or talk while your opponent is shooting.

9. #Chillout

Deal with your #angermanagement issues in therapy - don't vent your spleen in the pool room or no one will play with you.

10. There is a difference between losing and being a loser.

There's no crying in pool. Everybody loses from time to time but only losers badmouth opponents, refuse to shake hands, or break their cues.

I am #honored to have been offered a #Sponsorship with @predatorcues PredatorCues. 
It’s a fantastic #opportunity to showcase a #premium brand in #leagues and #tournaments locally as well as nationwide as soon as we can start traveling safely again. 
The #BLAK 4 5 is #gorgeous, and hits like a #dream. The BK Rush has a very satisfying break when executed perfectly. I made 4 in #9ball on a 9 ft #diamond tonight, it works. 
The Air 2 is fat, but seems to offer more control. It’s going to take a good number of sessions to dial these in. Any helpful suggestions are always welcome in the comments. 
I look forward to a long, #prosperous #partnership with Predator and more good pool and good action in 2021.

That’s right, #mosconicup #poolplayer @chrisrobinsonpool came to town to play a big match! Hard to believe how far this guy has come since I met him as a little #mwst #mezzweststatetour #scrub.

We finally finished the Fall season.... and #snookoflove did it again! 
We took down a tough #playoff and qualified for #Cities. 
I’m so proud of this team for making it to Cities again. We are so close to making it to Vegas!! πŸŽ²πŸŽ²πŸ†

This team is set up with 7-6-6, yes, three high levels and we have a great mix of mid-lows to make the numbers work (double jeapordy- 2 highs can play in a number of combinations) and we are a super tough team to beat. πŸ‘ŠπŸ‘ŠπŸ‘Š 
Me and the Red Menace are always on the same page and get it done!! πŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ½
