Day one has completed at the 3rd Annual George “Ginky” SanSouci Memorial, being held for the first time at Astoria, NY hotspot for pool, Steinway Billiards. Top players from NYC and the surrounding areas have made their way to Queens for one of the biggest events of the season…in hopes of claiming one of the most meaningful titles in New York.

The tournament, which runs from Saturday, August 31-Monday, August 2, is being co-presented by three of New York’s top pro/am pool tours, The Tri-State Tour, The Predator Pro/Am Tour, and The Mezz Tour. As many of New York’s most legendary pool rooms and tournaments were where Ginky came up in the game, and then became one of the best American players of his time, generations of players now unite each year as they carry on Ginky’s passion for the game.

NYC Grind has collaborated with Inside Pool Magazine to bring a free live stream to the web for viewers around the world to watch the action throughout the day. Matches will resume at 10:00am (EDT) on Sunday, September 1 on the one-loss side, and the live stream will pick up then as well. Watch the stream in the video player above, or on

The first day was all amateur action, as the Amateur 9-Ball division of the three-day event got underway at 10:00am on Saturday, August 31. Eight undefeated players in the winner’s bracket are being brought back to take their next shot.

The following eight players are lined up to play at 11:00am Sunday, and are guaranteed to place in 9th-12th.

Ross Lacy vs Lazlo Kovacs
Koka Davladze vs Tony Liang
Phil Davis vs Rhio Anne Flores
Ron Gabia vs Michael Yednak

Ron Gabia made his way to the final 8 of the winner's bracket after a 7-3 win vs Arturo Reyes on the live stream.

On the one-loss side of the bracket, a total of 40 players are coming back to continue to battle. The bracket of players who are currently in the 33rd-48th place slot are returning, as well as the players who moved on in the next round and are guaranteed to cash in 17th-24th.

Among the players returning on day two in the 17th-24th place are Ron Mason, Simon Lau, Geovani Hosang, Dan Faraguna, Adrian Daniel, Emily Duddy, Kelly Wong, and Cody Phillips. The matches in the one-loss bracket will resume at 10:00am on Sunday.

Below are the payouts slated for the Amateur 9-Ball division:

1st – $2,000
2nd – $1,500
3rd – $1,000
4th – $750
5th/6th – $350
7th-8th – $300
9th-12th – $200
13th-16th – $150
17th-24th – $125
25th-32nd – $100

Stay tuned for more upcoming results, along with photos, from the Amateur 9-Ball division of the Ginky Memorial.

Open/Pro 10-Ball Event

The Open/Pro 10-Ball division will begin at 12:00pm on Sunday, September 1, where many players who were both competitors and friends of George “Ginky” SanSouci will be in attendance. As of Friday, August 30, forty out of a possible field of 64 players were pre-registered, but entries have continued to come in through Saturday, and the event will likely be close to having a full field.

Many notable professional touring players are slated to compete in the event. Included among them are defending champion & Steinway Billiards house pro Earl Strickland, 2nd Annual Steinway Classic Champion Shane Van Boening, former Ultimate 10-Ball Champion Mike Dechaine, former Turning Stone Champion Oscar Dominguez, former NYC 9-Ball Champion Stevie Moore, current World Tournament of 14.1 Champion Thorsten Hohmann, 2013 Empire State 10-Ball Champion Jayson Shaw, WPBA touring pro Jennifer Barretta, former Mosconi Cup MVP Dennis Hatch, former Derby City Classic Champion Jose Parica, former Ocean State 9-Ball Champion Jeremy Sossei, former Texas Open Champion Robb Saez, and Predator Tour owner & former BCA 9-Ball Open Champion Tony Robles are among the top competitors in the event. Click here for the complete player list as of Friday, August 30.

While the tournament will bring high-caliber competition into the spotlight once again at Steinway, this event also has a great level of meaning for the players who compete in it.

To help celebrate the life and career of George SanSouci, NYC Grind is proud to share photos taken by Joseph Ratke at the 2000 BCA US Open 14.1 Championship in at the legendary Roseland Ballroom in New York. Along with photos of Ginky competing in the event, there are other photos included of other legendary greats of the professional pool.

2000, a banner year for Ginky, was considered the peak of his career, and was the year he won the Derby City Classic 9-Ball title. Special thanks to Joseph Ratke for sharing this remarkable set of photos.
