Twice a year, many of the world’s elite touring pro pool players gather to compete against the best of the Northeast for the Joss Tour’s Turning Stone Classic. On September 19-22, Turning Stone XXI will be held at the Turning Stone Resort & Casino in Verona, NY.

Tour director Mike Zuglan is known for putting on one of the most professional and well-run tournaments in the nation at Turning Stone…resulting in full field for the tournament well in advance. The field for Turning Stone XXI has been filled, and the complete player list can be found below.

Highlighting the field for the September, 2013 edition are  top pros including Thorsten Hohmann, Rodney Morris, Dennis Hatch, Larry Nevel, Ernesto Dominguez, Oscar Dominguez, Earl Strickland, Huidji See, Jayson Shaw, Robb Saez, Mike Dechaine, Marco Kam, Jason Klatt, Hunter Lombardo, Brandon Shuff, and Chris Bartram. Defending champion Shane Van Boening and runner-up Johnny Archer are missing from the list, as they will be representing the U.S. at the 2013 World Cup of Pool in London.

A number of top WPBA pros are also getting in the action at Turning Stone. The notable women’s names in the field include Turning Stone XX 5th place finisher Karen Corr, 2012 WPBA Masters Champion Ewa Mataya Laurance, Jennifer Barretta, Brittany Bryant, Caroline Pao, and Borana Andoni.

Once again, Accu-Stats and AZbilliards will be presenting a free live stream of the event’s feature matches on the Turning Stone Ustream Channel: www.ustream.tv/channel/turning-stone In addition to the free stream, admission to the event is also free for spectators.

For all the details on the Joss Tour’s Turning Stone XXI, read on in the announcement from Mike Zuglan.

TURNING STONE CLASSIC XXI 9-BALL OPEN – SEPTEMBER 19-22, 2013

Mike Zuglan’s Joss Northeast 9-Ball Tour and Turning Stone Resort & Casino are extremely excited and proud to present our 2012-2013 Season Finale, The $25,000 Added Turning Stone Classic XXI 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. Anyone who has ever been there will tell you that 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 everyone to feel like they are a part of the action themselves. Turning Stone Resort & Casino is a full service resort with everything needed for a relaxing and enjoyable experience. Check them out at www.turningstone.com.

For an unprecedented 21st 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) can be viewed below. Also check out a portion of our upcoming 2013-2014 season schedule here. The 2014 portion of our upcoming season will be posted very soon as it is still being finalized.

For the second time at Turning Stone there will be a “second chance” tournament on Sunday Sept. 22 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 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 Aramith Pro Cup cue balls. All items are for sale and only seriously interested parties are urged to contact Mike Zuglan immediately at 518-356-7163 for info and pricing.

Also for the 21st time fans coming to Turning Stone for our event will be treated to, Free Admission, Free full size collectible posters as seen above and once again Turning Stone will be giving away $10 free plays or match plays (your choice), EACH day of the event to players and fans. Only one coupon per person per day will be honored. So now you get Free admission, Free posters and Free bets!! 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. 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 $1200 each and are generously provided by Danny Janes of Joss Cues Ltd. Danny’s son Stephen Janes will be at our event displaying some of the finest cues made proudly in the USA.
