Black Widow of billiards moves to Tampa

Posted at 8:59 AM, May 03, 2016

Jeanette Lee is known as a pool shark, the best in the game, former world #1, but most people probably know her as the Black Widow.  No smile on her face when she's on the table and unapologetic about how good she is.  Surprisingly though, she says, she could be a lot better.

"I feel like I'm not even close to my full potential," says Lee  "Not making excuses... but as a fact.  I believe my body has let me down.  In terms of my game."

Lee has had 12 different surgeries to repair different parts of her body.  Ailments she has been living with for years and with two decades of professional pool under her belt, she says it's really time to give back.

"I bought the Tampa bay APA and that's basically in every bar and pool.  Every bar and pool room in Tampa runs leagues," says Lee.

Lee says a $25 membership fee gets you in.

"It's very affordable. Even though you pay the $8 a week by being on that team.  None of our house locations charge table time," says Lee.

She now calls Tampa home, with her children and her husband... and says there is nowhere else she would rather be.
