Formerly Robin Bell, this native Californian has dazzled the WPBA with exceptional play for more than 2 decades now. Robin is sponsored by Pool and Billiards Magazine, Judd Cues, and The Frog Jump Cues.
Robin Dodson stepped back into the winner’s circle in 1998 when she captured the BCA Twin Cities Classic title in May. That win, combined with six additional top top-12 finishes, guided Robin to an 8th place finish for the year. Robin began playing pool at the age of 12, and was California Women’s champion from 1972-74. In 1984, after a five-year hiatus from the sport, she turned professional. Her illustrious career includes back-to-back WPA World Titles in 1990 and 1991, 1991 Player of the Year honors, countless Classic Tour titles, WPBA Nationals champion, U.S Open champion and two Gordon’s $50,000 9-ball events. In addition, she is the current Treasurer of the Board of Directors of the WPBA.
Her advice to aspiring players is “Practice, but have a life outside the game;” to this end Robin enjoys spending time with her husband, Roy, and her children. Competing – the “competitive nature of pool with all the other women” – is what she enjoys most about the sport.
Robin is sponsored by Pool and Billiard Magazine, endorses Judd Custom Cues and is the owner of the Frog Jump Cue.
Known for her steely determination and deliberate stroke, Robin will be sure to add to her voluminous list of titles in 1999.
