Shane “The South Dakota Kid” Van Boening is pleased to announce the launch of his new player web site. The web features news, updates, sponsors and assorted information for Shane Van Boening fans. The web site is ShaneVanBoening.com.
The web site is a great way to keep up with the latest news and updates from Van Boening.

Fans can also browse Van Boening’s biography and list of titles that he has already added to his impressive resume.
“I would like to thank all of my fans for their support through the years. I hope that everybody enjoys the web site and their support will help make the world of pool and billiards bigger and better,” said Van Boening.
Van Boening is hearing-impaired and uses a hearing aid, but it has not limited his pool ability. He has received praise for his attitude towards the sport, partially for his behavior during matches, and for eschewing alcohol.
When Van Boening was a year and a half old, he watched his grandfather play pool and took a liking to the multi-colored balls on the emerald green felt. His family has a strong pocket billiards background. His grandfather, Gary Bloomberg, was a trick-shot artist; his grandmother, Jeanne Bloomberg, a VNEA national champion; his mother, Timi Bloomberg, a BCA national champion; and his aunt, Gari Jo Bloomberg, a three-time VNEA national champion.
In 2007 Shane hit the billiard circuit by storm quickly becoming a name to be reckoned with. Since then he has been an annual invitee to the World Mosconi Cup and has been declared by some as the next-in-line and heir-apparent to the throne of being the best pool player in the US. As a capstone to his career thus far, he has also become a Fan Favorite around the world.
Shane has also had the privilege to play in over 45 states within the United States and many countries including: Canada, Aruba, Nicaragua, United Arab Emirates, The Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, France, United Kingdom, China, Taiwan, Indonesia, Philippines and Japan.
