On March 13th, 2016 The Jointed Cue Billiards in Sacramento, California will hold its 47th Annual Terry Stonier 9-Ball Tournament. As a teen, Terry started playing 3-cushion billiards at his neighbors house with a dream to one day own his own establishment. Then in 1968 Terry opened up The Jointed Cue Billiards. With 19 tables; it also became the talk of the town for its famous cheeseburgers which still holds true this very day. Terry was a visionary who held many exhibitions, supported scores of big players and kept the pool scene going strong in Northern California for many years. He hosted events with players like Lou Butera, Luther Lassiter, Cicero Murphy, Richie Florence and many others. Later on in life, Terry went on to making cues for awhile, some of which can still be found on the collectors market. His Jointed Cue Billiards is probably the oldest surviving pool-halls in California and is still locally known as your ‘classic player’s, pool-hall’, boasting a separate ‘action room’ with four, 9 foot Gold Crown tables and surrounded by an old-fashioned, raised seating area.

POV Pool are proud to announce that this year’s ‘Stonier’ will be live streamed for free on our Ustream Channel for all to watch. We are TAOM TIPS PNGparticularly excited to visit this venue and to have the opportunity to talk to some of those who had known Terry for many years. Wed like to thank the new owner, Mike Murphy for bringing us in this year and we are going to do our best to give the viewers the greatest show that 4 cameras can deliver. It is also not without the help of Robert Aldana, Jr. and Angel Olivarez, that we are able to bring you this live stream. Mike Murphy may have thought our services were inaccessible, but thanks to Robert and Angel, they have proven that it never hurts to ask. It turns out that POV had actually contacted The Jointed Cue almost 3 years ago to provide this live stream, but at the time, Terry’s son David had really no internet of the sort. We had no idea that Jointed Cue had changed hands since. Our sincerest ‘Thank You’ goes to Robert and Angel for fanning the flames.

Entries are still being taken: Call Mike Murphy at – (916) 456-3243
