Jeremy Sossei displayed his top form again, with yet another Joss NE 9-Ball Tour win at Sharpshooters Billiards & Sports Pub in Amsterdam, NY on February 20-21.

 

Sossei took the winners side hot-seat, with a 9-6 win over Earl Herring.

 

Herring moved to the one loss side, with intentions to earn a rematch with Sossei in the finals. Those intentions would be derailed by Ron Casanzio. Casanzio had lost to Bucky Souvanthong in his first match of the weekend, but put together a nine match winning streak (including a 9-4 win over Herring) to earn his place in the finals. 

 

The final match looked to be going to a second set, with Casanzio holding a 6-3 lead in the first set. Five games later, the score was tied at 7-7 and Sossei kept on that hot-seat, winning the next two games for the 9-7 win.

 

In Sunday's second chance tournament, Bruce Carroll went undefeated with back to back wins over James Garrett in the hot-seat match and again in the finals.

 

Joe Giuliani was the weekend's winner of the $1,700 custom engraved Joss Cue.

 

The Joss NE 9-Ball Tour will be back in action on March 5th and 6th for the N.E. Pool and Billiard Hall of Fame 9-Ball Open at Snookers in Providence, RI. 

 

Mike Zuglan is already taking sign-ups for the Turning Stone Classic XXVI on August 25th - 28th. This will be a Mosconi Cup point event and the field will be limited to 128 players.
