About Tristan: 
Tristan Hansen is 12 years old and a 6th grader at Franklin Elementary in Mankato, MN.  He became interested in pool at the age of 5 as he was intrigued by his father’s stories of how he did in league pool during the week. His parent’s bought him and his sister a 15-in-one game table to see how they took to the game. Fundamentals were taught on this 4’ x 2’ table until he was tall enough to play on a bar box without a step stool. Within 2 years at the age of 7, he finished  in 4th place in the 9-13 division at the VNEA Junior National Tournament. Since then he has compiled 6 Junior National Titles. He is the defending VNEA Junior Nationals Singles Champion, 2 time defending  Junior  National Team Champion and 3 time defending Junior National Speed Pool Champion.  He has since competed at the Adult BCA Nationals in Las Vegas and the USBTC in Reno while cashing in many of those events as noted below.

Quote from Tristan about OB:
“I am excited to finally be able to play with a complete line of OB equipment rather than an assortment from many different makers. This should help improve my game and consistency.”

Goals in pool: 
"I would like to continue to rack up more Junior National Championships, but I am more excited to improve to the extent of playing in higher profile events with the better skilled amateurs and pro players so I can learn by experience.  I will continue to play in the BCA Nationals and USBTC and one day hope to play in the US Open, Derby City, Four Bears Classic, and Chinook Winds amongst many others. Another goal of mine is to get familiar and play all pool games rather than limiting myself to 8, 9 and 10 ball."
