The Joss NE 9-Ball Tour celebrated the life of well known east coast table mechanic Al Conte with their Al Conte Memorial Tournament at Hippo’s House of Billiards on November 3rd and 4th with a field of 52 players.
While the two day event was all about remembering Conte, the tournament belonged to Jeremy Sossei who cruised through the field undefeated for his first Joss Tour win of the new season.
Sossei Tour points leader Ron Cosanzio 9-5 for the hot-seat and then defeated Adam Keilar 9-3 in the finals after Keilar dispatched Cosanzio 9-7 in the semi-final match.
Cosanzio’s third place finish was enough to keep him in the tour points list lead after four events.
The second chance tournament on Sunday drew sixteen players and witnessed another undefeated run as Russ Philp defeated Spencer Auigbelle for both the hot-seat and again in the finals.
The Joss NE 9-Ball Tour will be back in action this weekend (November 10th – 11th) at Raxx Pool Room in West Hempstead, NY.
Players are also reminded that the Turning Stone Classic is coming up in January and the field is already 75% full. Interested players are urged to contact Mike Zuglan at 518-356-7163 to reserve their spot now.
