It's probably safe to say that of all the suburban moms in Southern California, Robin Bell is the only one who carries three custom-made pool cues in her Honda Accord. It's a sure bet that she's the only woman on her quiet Garden Grove street who works with guys named Slippery and Snake. And it's a cinch that none of the women Bell passes in the supermarket can say she was state pool champion before even getting her driver's license. Or that she nearly destroyed her life with heroin.

Robin Bell of Costa Mesa found out in January how sweet it is to be the star of a fad. Bell was one of six U.S. women pool players invited to Japan for an all-expenses-paid trip and exhibition with two Japanese women shooters. The Japanese routinely lure the top tennis players, skiers, singers and a baseball player or two to their shores, but as far as Americans familiar with the game know, it was a first for pool.

Robin Bell of Garden Grove has overcome so many of life's challenges that the fear of failure rarely enters her mind when she is playing pool. Bell, ranked third on the Women's Professional Billiards tour, reflected about her life while her opponent Ewa Mataya cleared the table in the first game of the $50,000 Gordon's 9-Ball Championship Saturday in Santa Monica. Mataya, the tour's eighth-ranked player, sank the one-ball, then the two and three with the accuracy of a marksman.
