Sambajon wins Maine Joss Event

Santos Sambajon

Santos Sambajon made his way through a field of 46 other players and won the Joss Northeast 9-Ball Tour stop at Spot Shot Billiards in Portland, ME this weekend.

Sambajon took the hot-seat on Sunday with a 9-6 win over TJ LaFlamme, and made himself comfortable waiting for an opponent.

That opponent would be Carlos Vierra, who took the long way to the finals. Vierra lost his first match of the event to Chad Bazinett on saturday, and then proceeded to win 10 matches in a row to get to the double elimination finals.

Vierra won the first set of the finals 9-6, but the second set was all Sambajon as he scored the 9-3 win. Sambajon collected $1300 for first, while Vierra pocketed $900 for second. LaFlamme and Mike Zuglan filled out the top 4 spots.

The Joss NE 9-ball Tour will be at Pro Billiard Lounge in Rotterdam, NY April 26th - 27th for their next event.
