Bio

Jorge Rodriguez has been around pool all his life. Rodriguez’s brother competed in tournaments around NYC when Jorge was younger and whenever Jorge had a chance he went with him. Rodriquez fell in love with the game right away. To him it was like watching an artist at work, “the way they made the cue ball move it was amazing to me,” said Rodriguez. It was from then on that he knew what he wanted to be.

However, Jorge’s brother joined the army and had to leave. Since Jorge had nobody to go to the pool hall with, he left the game for seven years. He got married and started a family. Then, in 2004 he was watching TV and noticed pool was on ESPN. He fell in love with the game again, bought a cue and the rest is history. He pushes himself every day and strives to be the best.
