Who was Jason Twist?

Jason “Tornado” Twist won the 8-ball pool world championship four times. By defeating Roger Demortier (France) and Jeremy Hooper (Cornwall, England), he won the WEPF World Rules World Championship twice, in 2000 and 2002, as well as the IPA World Professional Seniors (over 40) Championship twice, in 2015 and 2016, respectively. The WEPF World Rules World Championship was also won by Twist in 2000 and 2002. He resides in the English town of Ilfracombe, which is part of the North Devon county.

Along with competing for the England national pool team from 1989 to 2009, when they won 12 international team championships, he also won three titles at the European level, bringing his total number of world championships to 16.

Without a doubt one of the all time pool greats and legends of the sport. But beyond all of his incredible achievements, he was also one of life’s all time greats. The wittiest, funniest guy I knew but beneath all the banter he was a big softy with a heart of gold and that infectious smile just lit up the room. Thoughts are with Alana, Arnya and the rest of his family. Go and have a beer up there with your old man my friend. 🍻💫 The world just lost one of the very best. I will love and miss you forever. Fly high tornado.🌪️ Completely devastated. 💔💔💔”

Two legends.. xx”
