The Joss NE 9-Ball Tours Turning Stone Classic XXIX is ready to kick off at the Turning Stone Resort and Casino in Verona, NY. 
While reigning champion Shane Van Boening is not in attendance (he is at the Joy Chinese 8-Ball Masters this week), the reigning runner up - Jayson Shaw - is in attendance and looking to win his 6th Turning Stone title. That win would tie him with Johnny Archer for the most Turning Stone titles by one player. 
Challenging Shaw at this event, will be a field of 127 other players that includes such heavyweights as Billy Thorpe, Mika Immonen, John Morra, Johnny Archer, Dennis Hatch, Danny Hewitt, Shaun Wilkie, Brandon Shuff and Danny Basavich
Play kicks off on Thursday at 4pm EST, and AzBilliards will have all of the coverage with online streaming, online brackets and real time scoring all weekend.
