Jayson Shaw looks to be in prime Mosconi Cup form, as
he crushed a field of 87 players to win his third Ocean
State 9-Ball Championship at Snookers in Providence RI on
November 17th - 18th.
Shaw cruised through the winner’s side with wins Tony
Masi, Pat Fleming, Pete Bowman, Raphael Dabreo and Ryan
Lineham. Over those five matches, Shaw lost only 9 out of
After a late Saturday loss to Zion Zvi, Shawn Wilkie was
cruising through the one loss side. Wilkie had wins over
Matt Krah, Lucas Fracasso-Verner, Pete Bowman and Kyle Pepin
before getting revenge against Zvi 7-5. Wins over Dabreo
and Lineham lead to a match with Shaw in the finals.
While Wilkie would fair better against Shaw than any other
opponent all day, he would only get to 5 in the first set
of the finals.
A field of nineteen players came back on Sunday to compete
in the $500 added second chance tournament, where Ryan Urso
went undefeated including a 3-2 hot-seat win over Mike Demarco
and a 3-1 final match win over Francisco Cabral.
The Joss NE 9-Ball Tour will now take a break until the
Turning Stone Classic XXXI on January 10th - 13th at the
Turning Stone Casino in Verona, NY. That tournament is full
and players are urged to contact Mike Zuglan if they want
to be added to the waiting list.
