Altomare undefeated for Joss Tour Win

A field of 46 players descended on Raxx Pool Room in West Hempstead, NY on the weekend of December 8th and 9th for the weekend stop on the Joss NE 9-Ball Tour.

Chuck Altomare proved to be the man to beat on this weekend. He had his way with Jason Michas 9-3 in the hot-seat match, sending Michas to the left side of the board.

On the one loss side, Michas took an early lead over Eddie Abraham and then held off a late charge to win the match 9-8 and earn another shot against Altomare in the finals.

The finals saw Michas start out hot and take an early 6-3 lead. Six games would be all that Michas would get though, as Altomare won six straight games for the 9-6 win.

Altomare earned $1580 for first, while Michas took home $1100 in second place prize money.

The Joss NE 9-Ball Tour will now take their customary break and return on January 19th and 20th at Diamond Eight Billiards in Albany, NY.
