Welcome to the new Biggelbachs website.
Steve Lingelbach started playing pool in 1983 while attending college. He quickly fell in love with the sport and moved to Sacramento to learn more about the various games, observe the best players in the world, and participate in money games to better manage nerves and pressure. He studied under a variety of instructors including Ted Brown, Paul Brienza, and Jerry Briesath while picking up different things from great players like Kim Davenport and Warren “The Monk”Costanzo. After spending a few years in California, Steve moved back to Oregon and took several years off to start a family.
Upon his return to pool in 1996 Steve started racking up APA, VNEA and BCA titles including a 2001 World Team VNEA 1st place finish. In addition to competing he developed an instructional regimen, consulted for On The Wire newspaper, partnered in the West Coast Pechauer tour, and was the visionary behind Billiards & Barstools retail store, which was featured in the 2006 Street of Dreams.
Steve continues to compete, teach and promote pool today hoping to share his passion and love of the sport with others.
