Congratulations to Shane V.B. - 07-25-2016, 08:09 PM

Big congratulations to Shane on winning both the 10 ball and the 8 ball U.S. Open titles! Losing the first match in the 8 ball and coming all the way through to win it all is a true sign of the champion that he is.

Also, congrats to Rory and Jesse on their very high finishes!

I think Shane's winning both of these events (and losing his first match in one of them and still winning that event) makes a good statement that pool is indeed an athletic sport or it can be if that's what you want it to be.

I believe that makes nine U.S. Open titles for Shane.

2013, 2016 8 Ball Champion. 2007 , 2011, 2012, 2013 9 Ball Champion. 2011, 2016 10 Ball Champion. 2012 One Pocket Champion.

I don't believe anyone else has ever won that many U.S. Open titles.

I love it.

But now, to what extent to you all feel differently about these victories, coming on a bar table as opposed to a 9 footer?

It just means the other guys had a chance at winning... beyond divine intervention.

I didn't mean my previous post to in any way question or diminish Shane's victories this week. It's an amazing accomplishment against the best in the world.

Congrats to Shane VanBoening winning both the 10 and 8 ball events just proves once again he is USA's best player.

Best of luck to Shane in Qatar at The World 9 Ball Championship time to bring a World title back to the states
