Dechaine and Mieu Score NE 9-Ball Open Wins

Jeremy Sossei, Golden Cue Owner Kate Spinelli and Mike Dechaine

Mike Dechaine cruised, relatively untested, through a field of fifty three players to win the Joss NE 9-Ball Tour's NE 9-Ball Open XXVII at Golden Cue Billiards in Albany, NY on April 12th - 13th.


The closest any player got to Dechaine on day one, was a 9-6 win over Dwight Dixon. No one would come close to that on Sunday as Dechaine ran over Jarrod Clowery 9-2 for the hot-seat. 


Clowery's return to the Joss Tour would come to an abrupt halt, with Mosconi Cup hopeful Jeremy Sossei scoring a 9-1 win over Clowery on the one loss side.


Sossei's dominating performance over Clowery wasn't enough preperation for Dechaine though, as Dechaine quickly dispatched Sossei 9-3 in the first and only set of the finals.


The second chance tournament drew twenty one players on Sunday, where Steve Greene defeated Mike Hurley 3-2 for the hot-seat, but then fell in two sets to tour newcomer Kiet Mieu in the finals.


The Joss NE 9-Ball Tour will be back in action at Raxx Billiards in West Hempstead, NY on April 26th and 27th.
