Players & Fans,

Congratulations to Stop 13 winners – Nick Charette ($1,000 main event), Dan Sharlow ($300 second chance) & $1,900 Joss Cue raffle winner Russ Crutchley. Also to our current tour point leader Ron Casanzio for a paid entry into Allen Hopkins Super Billiards Expo 9-Ball Pro Event (April 13-16, 2023), Courtesy of Allen Hopkins!!!!

The Joss Northeast 9-Ball Tour will once again be at Yale Billiards in Wallingford CT on April 1 & 2, for a $2,000 ($1500+$500) added 9-ball event. Our host, Bobby Hilton, deserves much credit for bringing our tour back to Connecticut and all he does to promote our great sport of pocket billiards. So lets come out in big numbers to show our support! Yale Billiards has been around for almost 30 years with just the last four in their new building. They have a full bar with an extensive bar food menu to satisfy all of our needs. There are 16 Gold Crown tables all covered with 860HR Simonis plus a couple of Valley bar boxes for league play. Yale Billiards is also the home of the increasingly popular “The Sharkstream” which allows for live streaming league and tournament pool matches as well as our event. You can access the live stream on Face book on “The Sharkstream” page or on You Tube by searching Yale Billiards Shark Stream. So come on down to compete or just watch another great tournament. Be sure to take a chance on winning a beautiful, $1,900 custom engraved Joss cue in the cue raffle. Anyone can participate and you do not have to be present to win! We will draw for the cue just prior to the finals of the main event. For more information visit them at or call them at 203-294-9591
