Dechaine Stays Strong on Joss Tour

Mike Dechaine

Mike Dechaine kept his recent streak of hot play going strong with his third straight win on the Joss NE 9-Ball Tour on May 31st and June 1st.


Dechaine emerged from a field of 49 players at Snookers in Providence, RI to take the hot-seat with a hard fought 9-8 win over Jayson Shaw


On the one loss side, Shaw then dropped a 9-7 decision to Nelson Oliviera. That match was a bit of revenge for Oliviera, as it was Shaw who had sent him to the one loss side on Saturday by the same 9-7 scoreline.


The finals between Dechaine and Oliviera would go two sets, with Oliviera winning set one 9-7 and then Dechaine taking the second set by the score of 9-1.


The second chance tournament saw fifteen players come back on Sunday to play, but this event was all about Mark Creamer. Creamer went undefeated and ended the tournament with a combined game score of 15-1, having only lost one game to Ranulf Tamba in the second round. Creamer defeated Luis Aybar 3-0 for the hot-seat and again 3-0 in the finals.


The Turning Stone Classic XXII is now full, and Mike Zuglan has a waiting list for players who are still interested in playing. Interested players should contact Mike at 518-356-7163 to be added to the list.
