Jane’s Highlights

Jane’s Highlights was the tiny spark of inspiration that led me to create my instagram feed and ultimately this site. I always wanted a way to share my poolworld in a way that even non-poolplayers could appreciate.

Pool has been my obsession since I was 14. I’ve been playing longer than I’d care to admit. I’ve seen so many amazing shots and met countless kindred spirits on my pool-adventure. In the last year or so, I’ve managed to capture some of my best shots. I even impressed myself with a few of them πŸ™‚

This is one of my absolute FAVORITE shots this year – we were dying…Ryan almost lost his mind!

There are plenty of shots in this collection of Jane’s Highlights to choose from.
Explore some of my favorites…like, comment, find your favorite – I’d love to hear your feedback!

This was one of my #favorite shots the whole #tournament. My first match he safeties me and leaves me tough. But the #nineball goes off the 5. 
I called it and nailed it and still needed some #magic to get out. Can you guess what happened next?? #HIGHDESERTSHOOTOUT #WYOMING #girlsthatplaypool #janeshighlights #classicdivision #eightball #8ball #poolplayers

But #why do you #play? Is it the #competition? The thrill of #victory? The #agony of #defeat? The moments of #glory? The #money? #fame?
The #escape? I #love the look on their face when they #realize I’m out. There is something so #satisfying about this game. The #suspense and #surprise endings. The things that work when they probably shouldn’t have. It’s those special moments that make me #happiest. #focus #intensity

#holymoly there are a lot of ways to #win at this game. Beating the #monsters is one way. #playerauctions are another. I went 1-2, but my #pony came in first! #pickemright #goodbet he lost his first match and came all the way back from the #leftside to #doubledip the guy in the #hotseat. He was #outofhismind and in #deadstroke. #heart #grindin #doordie

Made it to #day2 of the #napaleague #tournament. Lost my first match and battling through the left side. #grinding #girlsthatplaypool #poolplayers #janechalks #janeshighlights 4-0 one guy that was supposed to beat me 4-5. Got a bnr on a hill hill match, #eightball on the break first game of another match which got me a raffle ticket for a prize....3-1 for 13 hours of playing at #Feltbilliards back bright and early tomorrow. Wish me luck πŸ€πŸ€πŸ€

Well I #played my little #heart out today. Lost my first match and came all the way back to #win the #apa #grandprix. There were 86 #poolplayers and most of the day I played other 6’s (high level bracket). I made 2 awesome kicks on the #eightball, got a #bnr and a #8ballbreak couple nice table runs and generally #kickedass. So stoked. #grandprixchampion and now I qualify for their end of the year big tournament and I don’t have to keep playing these every month to get the points. #bonus. #lunchmoney #girlsthatplaypool did I mention I was the only gal in the #highlevel bracket? #heehee #makeboyscry #cashed #denverpoolplayers #janechalks #janeshighlights

What an #awesomeshot !! Thanks @michaelpang115 for the #fantasticart
I πŸ’— it!! #frame-able 
Busy #Poolhall...#girlsthatplaypool ....easy to see πŸ‘€ the difference between them and me. #doublejointed #janeshighlights #billiards #pool #poolart #billiardsart #portraitofaplayer #janeapproved appropriate as I started playing at this poolroom when I was 16. Ran into more than a few players still there and found a great pic of us from Bca nationals back in 1998. It's been a long #journey and I've come such a long way since learning how to hit a straight shot way back when.
