Joss NE 9-Ball Tour, Western BCA Highlight Latest Round of Cancellations / Postponements

More and more tournaments are being cancelled or postponed with recent announcements by the Joss NE 9-Ball Tour, Tri-State Tour and Western BCA Pool Players Association.

The Joss NE 9-Ball Tour’s Kevin Ketz 9-Ball Open, originally scheduled for this weekend, has been postponed by tour director Mike Zuglan. Zuglan’s announcement indicated he would announce replacement date information as it became available.

The Tri-State Tour went a step further and cancelled their events scheduled for the rest of March. Their announcement online noted that “As much as everyone would like to continue business as usual, the presence of the novel coronavirus COVID-19 in the NY-NJ area calls for different action”.

The 25th Annual Western BCA 8-Ball Championships, scheduled to take place at the Chinook Winds Casino Resort in Lincoln City Oregon on April 4th – 12th, has officially been cancelled by the Western BCA Pool Players Association.

In addition to tournament’s being affected, pool rooms across the country are expected to be forced to close. One of the first rooms to announce their temporary closing was Snookers in Providence, RI. Owners Steve and Regina Goulding announced the closure on March 15th, noting that they will reopen “when the appropriate time comes, based on the recommendation of health and government authorities”.

18 & under, Frank Spain III and 12 & Under D’Angelo Spain

Congratulations to our new 2020, Joss Junior 9-Ball Champions Frank Spain III in the 18 & under division and D’Angelo Spain in the 12 & under. Both players dominated their respective divisions to claim their titles. Also congratulations to our second place finishers, Amber Kolchew (18 & under) & Alena Hahn (12 & under). Both of these young ladies were very impressive players as well. Frank Spain III and his younger brother D’Aangelo both went undefeted to earn their championships. Our formats for both divisions this year were, round robin group play with the final four playing off in single elimination play to determine the champions. Once again Tim Berlin deserves much thanks for allowing us the use of his beautiful Sharp Shooters Billiards & Sposrt Pub in Amsterdam NY.

It was a fun day of pool watching these 32 talented youngsters compete with some as young as 8 years old. There were 18 in the 18 & under division and 14 in the 12 & under. Most were playing in their first tournament ever. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves even though they were very serious in trying to win. Some even made a long weekend out of it by having a pizza, wings & pool (swimming) party at their motel! All players were treated to a table full of donated items to choose from, plus free raffles for the larger items. Many thanks go out to the many people and companies that generously donated products and their time to help. Our generous sponsors are, in no particular order: Sharp Shooters Billiards & Sports Pub (Tim & Julie Berlin), Joss Cues (Debbie, Dan & Stephen Janes), James Sinclair (Rhythm Custom Cues), CJ & Peggi Wilkinson (Baltimore City Cues), Don Kerns, Iwan Simonis (Ivan Lee), Aramith (Ivan Lee), Phil Capelle (Billiards Press), Mark Kulungian, Andrea Duvall (Utica Billiards On The Boulevard), Matt Tetreault, Steven W. Smith, Dave Dreidel, Bill Cote, Josh Burbul, Don Kennedy & Steve Lillis. And thank you to anyone I may have missed and everyone else involved. Hopefully we will be doing this for years to come.

Lin Leads Chinese Taipei Contingent at Ocean State 9-Ball Championship

Mike Zuglan, Fu Che-Wei, Lin Ta-Li and Snookers owner Steve Goulding

The team of players from Chinese Taipei did not have a good trip to the United States for the International 9-Ball Open, with Ko Ping-Chung’s 5th place finish as the best performance by one of the group’s players. Their results at the Joss NE 9-Ball Tour’s Ocean State 9-Ball Championship on November 9th – 10th at Snookers in Providence RI, was much better. Five of the six Chinese Taipei players cashed in the Ocean State event, with four of them in the top six spots. 
 
Saturday matches narrowed the field of seventy-three players down to just twelve. The winner’s side came down to Fu Che-Wei, Lin Ta-Li, Suad Kantaravic, and recent Junior Invitational 9-Ball Champion Lukas Fracasso-Verner. Both players from Chinese Taipei then advanced with Fu beating Verner 9-2 and Lin over Kantaravic 9-6. Lin then defeated Fu 9-3 for the hot-seat. 
 
Sunday matches on the one-loss side saw Hsu Kai-Lun eliminating Mike Giurleo and Frankie Hernandez before losing a 7-3 decision to Kantaravic. The other half of the one-loss side saw Chang Yu-Lung over Ron Casanzio and Chiang Chen-Yu before being eliminated in 5th place by Verner. Verner sent Kantaravic to the seats in 4th place with a hill-hill win but then dropped the semi-final match to Fu 7-2.
 
The all Chinese Taipei final match went one set with Lin repeating his hot-seat win over Fu 9-5 for first place. 
 
Sunday’s second chance tournament was won by Francisco Cabral, who went undefeated and didn’t allow an opponent more than one rack against him all day. Cabral defeated Mike Salerno 3-1 for the hot-seat and 3-1 again in the finals. 
 
The next Joss NE 9-Ball Tour stop will be the Turning Stone Classic XXXIII on January 9th – 12th. That event is now full. Any player who didn’t get their entry paid can contact Mike Zuglan to get on the waiting list.
