Jeff Kruger can be one of the most intense players on the circuit. When he gets it going, he can pull off some incredibly heinous moves.

Jeff is an extremely physical player and gets as much air as anyone. His signature move, the tabletop gitis, is difficult to see on a cloudy day with the elevation he gets.

Constantly in the hunt every tournament he enters, he has finished in the money numerous times at the FPA World Championships.

A very turbo jammer, Jeff is usually FOLO (first on, last off) the jam field along with his equally turbo-wife Cindy. He does not just show up. From first move to last catch, Jeff is always going for the big move. He exhibits high energy with a great sense of flow. Jeff is continually improving all aspects of his game. Although he has never won a major title, it is only a matter of time. Jeff has had some fantastic mixed routines over the years with his wife Cindy, exhibiting high energy and a fast pace that was amazing at times. Most notable performances were:
Third Place Open Pairs with Larry Imperiale, 2004 World Championships in Rimin, Italy. Third Place Open Pairs with Paul Kenny, 2000 World Championships in Seattle, Third Place Open Co-op with Toddy Brodeur and Reto Zimmerman at 2003 Worlds in Rimini, Second Place Mixed Pairs with wife Cindy at 1993 Worlds in Seattle.
