Joss Northeast 9-Ball

Pomainville Earns First Joss Tour Win

Norm Pomainville made his way through a field of 41 players at Trick Shot Billiards in Clifton Park, NY to win his first Joss NE 9-Ball Tour stop; but it wasn’t easy by any means. ¬†Pomainville dropped the hot-seat match in a heartbreaking 9-8 match to Tom Acciavati, but bounced back with a 9-6 win over Ron Casanzio on the one loss side. ¬†Pomainville squared off against Acciavati in the finals, and won the first set in another hill-hill match. The first set appeared to take all of the wind out of Acciavati’s sails as Pomainville dominated a 9-2 match to capture first place.
