Dear Players & Fans,
 
Congratulations to stop 10 winners, Jeremy Sossei (Main Event, $1,200), Bruce Nagle (Second Chance Event, $320) & Kayla Riccio ($1,500 Joss Cue Raffle Winner)
 
Snookers Billiards Sports Bar & Grill (Providence R.I.) and Mike Zuglan"s Joss Northeast 9-Ball Tour are proud to present the 8th Annual New England Pool & Billiards Hall Of Fame Ray Desell Memorial 9-Ball Open. In addition to the actual tournament which will take place on Saturday March 4 & Sunday March 5, there will also be a Hall of Fame presentation ceremony on Friday evening March 3 at 6pm. All inductees will receive plaques in the New England Pool & Billiards Hall Of Fame located at, maintained, and funded by Snookers. This is just one more way that our hosts Regina & Steve Goulding continue to show their devotion and generosity to our sport. Also, Tom McGonagle deserves much credit for his time and effort in gathering the information, pictures and supervising the inductee process. You will be able to view the entire weekend's events via a Free live stream, courtesy of Snookers. Thanks also to "Upstate Al" (Leon) for providing his expert commentary throughout the weekend. The free stream can be accessed on Snookers home site: www.snookersri.com
 
Snookers is also one of the best restaurants in the Providence area. Check them out at www.snookersri.com and thanks again to Steve & Regina for putting up the $3,000 added, and once again allowing us the use of their great room for our event. Trophies will be awarded to the top 2 finishers in the main event. Also, Whether you come to play, or just watch, you will have the opportunity to win a gorgeous, custom, engraved Joss Cue, valued at $1,500, by participating in Snookers cue raffle. Anyone can participate  and you don't have to be present to win! The drawing will be just prior to the final match of the main event on Sunday. So come on down and play and win, watch for free, have some great food and drink, and take a chance at a $1,500 Joss Cue. Can it get any better than that?
