Joss Tour Announcement

Players & Fans,

I am extremely excited to announce the unveiling of my Joss Northeast 9-Ball Tour’s innovative new format this weekend (April 10-11) at Raxx Pool Room & Grill. (W. Hempstead NY) 516-538-9896.

Once again our most generous host is owner Holden Chin. This is the second of three of our events Holden has committed to this season and he deserves many thanks for all he does for us. Raxx is one of the finest rooms in the Northeast with plenty of tables, a huge bar and Great food. Thanks again Holden.

As for our new format, here goes. There will be a Sat & Sun $1,500 Added main event with entry fees as follows. $120 for pro level players, and $70 for non pro level players. The tournament director will make the determination of pro vs non pro. I can tell you this much, if you have ever won a Joss Northeast 9-Ball Tour event or similar event, you amongst others, will definitely be pro level! On Sunday we will have a $500 added, double elimination, short race to 3 tournament for only those non pro level players that were eliminated from the main event on Saturday. The entry fee for this event is only $20!! Both events will run simultaneously on Sunday.

The remaining events this season, with the exception of Turning Stone, will be played in this new format.  ALSO, Holden has purchased some of our tour sponsor products allowing us to give away a FREE entry AND 3 paid room nights at our $25,000 Added Turning Stone Classic XV 9-Ball Open (August 19-22). This prize ($550+ value) will be awarded to a player finishing out of the money in the Raxx main event providing they have never won a Joss event. We will draw the winner on Sunday just prior to the final match and the winner does not have to be present to win. The winner must however, use the prize or lose it. It cannot be sold or traded. If the winner chooses not to go then we will draw again. Someone will win! Once again thanks to Holden Chin!!

For those of you coming to play, please arrive on Saturday April 10 before noon in proper dress please. If coming to watch, spectator admission will once again be free for what promises to be an historic event! Complete tour info can be found on our site For accommodations there is a nearby Red Roof Inn and if you reserve a room through you will receive a %20 discount. Just click on the Red Roof Inn logo on az’s home page and reserve at the Westbury NY (Long Island) location. Also, once again Jason Michas, owner/operator of will be posting online brackets on his site throughout the weekend.
