The expanded, record 16-stop Tour began in October with local Raymond Fung capturing the inaugural Tour stop at the New 147 Snooker Club in Brooklyn, NY, and is continuing with stop #2 at the Prince Snooker Club, also in Brooklyn, with a handicapped tournament – the $300-added Prince Snooker Classic, November 21-22; followed the next weekend by stops in Houston TX and Redmond WA!
