Joss Northeast 9-Ball

2014 Turning Stone Classic Player List

Mike Zuglan’s Joss Northeast 9-Ball Tour and Turning Stone Casino Resort are proud to present our 2013-2014 Season Finale, The $25,000 Added Turning Stone Classic XXII 9-Ball Open. Turning Stone has once again generously invited us to compete in their beautiful and spacious Event Center which is one of the best arenas in the world. There is not a bad seat in the house and multiple matches can be viewed comfortably from everywhere. Spectator admission has always been free, and the intimate layout allows you to mingle with your favorite players and feel like you are a part of the action as well. Turning Stone Resort & Casino is a full service resort with everything needed for a relaxing, fun filled and enjoyable experience. Check them out at
For the 22nd time, there will be a FULL field of 128 players competing for the title. The field includes a wide range of talent from the best of the best to those striving to be the best! The complete current list (subject to change) is now available on our site . There you will also find our upcoming 2014-2015 season schedule, results and all other pertinent tour information. There is still time for interested Billiard Parlors to schedule an event by contacting me directly. Our Turning Stone Classic XXIII 9-Ball Open is scheduled for January 8-11, 2015. I will begin taking entries for that event at this event in September and not before. I urge you to enter this event early to avoid being shut out.
Once again at Turning Stone there will be a “second chance” tournament on Sunday Sept. 21 at 10AM. This is an event for those Non Pro level players (I will decide) eliminated from the main event. The event format will be as follows: $60 Entry Fee – 32 Player Max – same rules as main event – Single Elimination – Races to 4, best 2 of 3 sets, with the deciding set a single game sudden death. This means that if each player wins a race to 4, there will be a lag for the break and a 1 game playoff to determine the match winner. Entries will be taken for this tournament as players are eliminated from the main event and will be treated as first paid – first in until the event is full.
The equipment for this world class event will once again be 16 Diamond Pro tables covered with 860 Simonis (“The Cloth Of Champions”) tournament blue cloth. For the first time we will be using the new Aramith Tournament balls with Pro Cup cue balls. All items are for sale in tournament used condition, and only seriously interested parties are urged to contact Mike Zuglan immediately at 518-356-7163 for info and pricing.

Once again, and for the 22nd time, fans coming to Turning Stone for our event will be treated to Free Admission, Free full size collectible posters (while supplies last & can be viewed now at ), $10 Free Plays to players and fans, and some of the best pool you will ever see. All of this is brought to you courtesy of Turning Stone Resort & Casino and the Joss Northeast 9-Ball Tour!
Included in the Event Center at Turning Stone is a full service snack bar serving all of our favorite foods and adult beverages. There will be billiard product vendors and on site cue repairs available for all your needs. There is still time and room for new vendors at a mere fraction of what you would pay elsewhere. Interested parties should contact me at 518-356-7163 immediately. We will also be raffling off 2 gorgeous, custom, engraved Joss Cues on Saturday at 8pm and Sunday immediately prior to the final match and you Do Not have to be present to win. These cues have a retail value of over $1,500 each and are generously provided by Danny Janes of Joss Cues Ltd. The cues can be viewed here:
So why not come to Turning Stone Resort & Casino September 18-21 for a great experience and 4 full days of some of the best pool you will ever witness. If for some reason you are unable to make it, there will be a free live stream and live scoring expertly provided by Alan Leon, aka Upstate Al, (Mike Howerton & Jerry Forsythe), The Joss Northeast 9-Ball Tour and Turning Stone Resort & Casino. Match times are as follows: Thursday at 4,6,8 & 10pm. Friday at 10am, noon, 2,4,6,8 & 10pm. Saturday at 10am, noon, 2,4,6,8 & 10pm. Sunday at 11am, 1,3,5 & the final match at 7pm. The second chance tournament on Sunday will begin at 10am and run continuously until completed.
Again, I would like to remind all of you how important it is to please frequent your local billiard parlors and promote and utilize the fine products of our most generous sponsors listed below. They are the backbone of our sport!
I hope to see all of you at Turning Stone
