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

Anyone know of an existing app that lets you track all matches? 
It would be cool to have one place to see:
-Name of opponent
-Format 
-league
-Opponents Skill level (rank, fargo or other rating) 
-My skill level at the time 
-Race 
-Match score
-match points 
-Break and run
-Table run 
-On the snap 
-Rackless 

Then I could see all my stats for the week, month, season. Or I could look up my #stats against a particular person. 

It would be #amazing if it could pull from the APA and NAPA or BCA online standings automatically but even if I enter it manually, Iโ€™d still be #stoked. 

Anyone heard of such an app? 
If I built one, what else would you want to see on it?
Interested in helping me build it? Dm me #poolplayers #8ball #9ball #10ball #saratoga

Story time...
Today my #Meownuggets split the NAPA league end of session #tournament. Itโ€™s a 3 man handicapped tournament. We had 4 teams battling it out today. Laggers Choice, 8, 9 and 10ball. 
Round 1, Chris Slaktowicz and @playsafeorrunout both won their matches, and @adjling didnโ€™t have to finish her match. #goodjobboys
Round 2, @adjling and I shut out our matches and Chris didnโ€™t have to finish his match to advance to the #hotseat. #girlsthatplaypool #smashedit
The Left side battled it out and we agreed to split it with the team we sent to the other side. 
It was a quick tournament and Iโ€™m so proud of my team! We are the #champions, my friends!! Shout out to Cheryl Jones for running a great league and a fun end of session tournament (even 3 months later than planned!). Thanks for all you do to keep this going. 
And of course, a huge thank you to Duane Perea and Madara Bob for taking care of all of us crazy #denverpoolplayers all day at @feltbilliards

It felt so good to compete again... #feltbilliards opened up to the public and started running tournaments this weekend. We were at least 6 feet away from eachother most of the time. I felt safe. 
These two back to back #kicks were a couple of my #favorite shots tonight. #good to be back

If you havenโ€™t heard... now you know. 
#apaleagues @poolplayers is postponing their big team events until December. Tentatively the #Showdown events will be in August... This is a great plan, and I know they will continue to update as needed, but they are committed to having their events and taking care of their #poolplayers in the best way they can. 
Hopefully Iโ€™ll get to see yโ€™all in Vegas in December! ๐Ÿ˜˜
