About Liz Ford
Born Elisabeth Schwartzreich, Liz is originally from Newton, Massachusetts. Liz started playing pool while a student at Reed College in Portland, Oregon. Liz’s talent, hard work and devotion to the game led her to become the Northwest Regional Tour Champion in 2000. Shortly thereafter, Liz moved to New York with the goal of becoming a professional player. She soon became the number one ranked amateur player in the Northeast US and achieved her Touring Professional status with the WPBA (Women’s Professional Billiards Association) in 2005.
Looking to take her game to the next level, Liz is now competing regularly against top male players in the Northeast U.S., in addition to the tough competition from the women of the WPBA tour. A committed student of the game, she also trains at 3-cushion billiards and 14.1 Straight Pool.
