Joss NE 9-Ball Tour Returns to Portland, Maine on October 29 – 30


Congratulations to stop # 6 winners, Kyle Akaloo ($1,000 main event), Josh Welsh ($300 second chance event) & $1,900 Joss Cue raffle winner Zac Baum

Stop # 7 of my Joss Northeast 9-Ball Tour’s 26th season will be at American Pool & Billiards (formerly Union Station) in Portland Maine on Oct 29 & 30. Jerry Guitard is our most generous host for what promises to be another great event and he deserves our sincere thanks for allowing us the use of his beautiful room. American Pool & Billiards Billiards boasts 18 Gold Crowns, all covered in 860 Simonis (The Cloth Of Champions) which will allow us to move swiftly throughout the weekend. They also have a pub style restaurant with great food, a full bar, a 12 foot Snooker table, ping pong and darts. So lets show the Jerry our appreciation by coming to play in or just watch what promises to be yet another great 9-ball event. You could even win a $1,900 custom engraved Joss Cue in the raffle. Anyone can participate and you do not have to be present to win. The drawing for the cue will be on Sunday just before the final match of the main event. For more information about American Pool & BilliardsBilliards, check them out at or on Facebook or call them at 207-899-3693.

This event at American Pool & Billiards will consist of a $1,500 added Saturday and Sunday Main Event (entry Fee $120 for pro level or $70 for non pro level) and a $500 added second chance event on Sunday ($20 Entry Fee) for those non pro level players eliminated from the main event on Saturday. All of our events are open to players of all skill levels. Our main event format remains true double elimination, but now with races to 9 on the winners side and races to 7 on the one loss side.

For those of you coming to play, please arrive on Saturday October 29 Before 11:00 AM, and in proper dress please. Yes, jeans and sneakers are permitted in our billiard parlor events. But please, NO T-SHIRTS, TANKS, SHORTS OR SWEATS. Complete tour info can be found on our site

FYI, I am currently in negotiations for our $25,000 Added Turning Stone Classic XXXVII in the Summer of 2023. I will let everyone know when it is finalized and I will begin taking entries for that event at the January 2023 event and not before.

Please remember to spread the word to frequent your local billiard parlors and utilize and promote the world class products of our most generous sponsors. They are the backbone of our sport and deserve our support now more than ever!!
