AmazinLogoFormer Champion Hosts Event Leading to Nationals

Four former US Champions will battle it out in the most difficult billiard sport of all as they warm up for the United States Billiard Association (USBA) 2013 Three-Cushion National Championship. This special tournament with its stellar field will be held at the exclusive private club A'Mazin Billiards in Malden, Massachusetts.

Three-Cushion champions Sonny Cho, Hugo Patino, Miguel Torres and A'Mazin Billiards' own Mazin Shooni, along with runner-up Michael Kang, will face off against each other and a slate of seasoned players from across the country on Saturday and Sunday, March 23-24 at the private billiard club on Faulkner Street. Historically held at New York's famed Carom Cafe, the "warm-up" event was moved to the Massachusetts setting to celebrate the opening of the new club, owned by Kevin Van Stry of Van Stry Designs and New England Hall of Famer and world class player, Mazin Shooni. Featuring state-of-the-art heated Breton Billiard tables, the action will give viewers a taste of the excitement to come when the USBA Nationals begin at the New Jersey Convention Center in Edison, New Jersey this April 4-7.

Famed artistic champion Miguel Torres will treat viewers to a trick shot exhibition at the close of the ceremonies on March 24. The A'Mazin Billiards event will be live-streamed on the Internet by Drew Dangelmayer of CaromCorner. You can watch by clicking here or here on the days of the tournament. The event is free to members and open by invitation-only to special guests. Sponsors include Van Stry Designs, Jack's Ristorante, Breton Billiards, Tiger Products Professor Q-Ball Magazine and the USBA.
