Ashik Nathwani Secures Maiden Total9ball Win in Amateur Series

Total9ball took centre stage once again yesterday at The St Albans Hurricane Room for the 8th event of their 10 event amateur series. A total of 27 players made the trip to St Albans Hertfordshire as the race for the end of season number one spot in the rankings heats up.

Matches kicked off at around 10.30am on Saturday 31st August 2014. The field assembled again was very strong and it would be hard for a betting man to pick a winner with so many closely matched players and a handicap head-start for the players rated a lesser standard. Kris Kovacs reported back the day’s first score line, a 7v3 victory for Kris against the only entrant from Wales Jon Davies. Tom Staveley started the event well with a convincing 7v2 result over Ricky Collett. Gareth Espirit bossed his match with Ashik Nathwani winning 7v5 leaving Ashik with just his second life remaining. Phil Wildman started slowly against improving Darian George, Phil trailed 6v1 but managed to turn this match around winning 7v6. Del Sim looked unbeatable and fully in stride right from the off as he inflicted a 7v3 score line against Ramesh Gokhul. Paul Choonge held his nerve to advance 7v6 against Andrew Carter while on the table next door Ken Ng was on fire… a 7v1 win against Jason Rosser proved that. Tony Burton blew away Nick Hampton in impressive fashion 7v1. On to other side of the draws 1st round results now as Tony Burton made it two wins from two matches 7v4 against Ian Gooderham . Mark Parker received a bye in his first match so he spent his morning catching some action photos of the players, the lack of table time didn’t seem to put Mark off however as he achieved a good 7v2 result against Tom Staveley. Gary Bullocke was in no mood for even losing a rack against Paul Choonge as he cruised through 7v0. Zoltan Kojsza got the better of Steve Davison 7v4 and Phil Wildman defeated Ramesh Gokhul 7v3 in a very high standard match ending Ramesh’s return event as he was been away in the States for the past few months.

Strickland – We’ll slay England and win World Cup

EARL STRICKLAND HAS promised he and partner Shane Van Boening will win the World Cup of Pool for USA and has warned England A they’ll be at the top of his hit list.

Strickland last played in the World Cup of Pool in 2006, also his last competitive appearance in the UK. On that occasion ‘The Pearl’ and his partner Rodney Morris made it to the final where they were defeated by Efren Reyes and Francisco Bustamante as Philippines lifted the trophy.

However, Strickland will venture back across the pond this September to represent USA in the World Cup of Pool in Portsmouth, and has warned the other 31 teams that America will be going one better than they did last time he played.

“It’s great to be back playing in the World Cup of Pool representing USA and great to be teamed up with partner Shane Van Boening,” said Strickland.

“My last appearance was in 2006 when I was teamed up with Rodney Morris and we reached the finals of the inaugural World Cup. This time with myself and Van Boening we look forward to winning the Cup for USA.”

England A’s Karl Boyes has already warned he would relish the opportunity to keep Earl ‘The Pearl’ Strickland quiet having defeated the veteran in a hotly-contested battle at last year’s Mosconi Cup in Las Vegas.

Grabe takes second in a row

Denis Grabe (EST) has just won the Dynamic Billard Slovenian Open Euro-Tour event in Portoroz, Slovenia. He defeated Marc Bijsterbosch (NED) with a clear 9:4 result.

Grabe took his first Euro-Tour title ever at the last Euro-Tour in St. Johann, Austria. Already there he defeated bis names like current 9-ball World Champion Niels Feijen (NED). Here again, Grabe got the better of players like Karl Boyes (GBR) 9:4, Albin Ouschan (AUT) 9:3, Marcus Chamat (SWE) 9:3 and in the final up and coming young Dutch player Marc Bijsterbosch (NED) 9:4. „I think I am really on a roll at the moment“, stated Grabe after the final match. „The victories do not come easy to me at all. They are hard work. But I am very confident at this point in time and I want to make use of it while it lasts“, added Grabe.

2014 World Cup of Pool - Euro Qualifier set for Slovenia

THE EUROPEAN QUALIFYING event for the 2014 World Cup of Pool gets underway tomorrow (Tuesday) in Portoroz, Slovenia with a first round match-up against China awaiting the victors. There are eight two-man teams taking part with the winning team gaining a sport at the Mountbatten Centre, Portsmouth where the World Cup takes place from 23rd to 28th September.

With a $250,000 prize fund on offer, there will be everything to play for and the European qualifiers have got a superb record of upsetting the odds in recent years. Last year, Hungary KO’d China in the first round and then Russia to reach the quarter finals and in 2011 both Switzerland and Estonia turned the form book on its head when they beat China and England respectively in the first round in Manila.

Craaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiiiiiigggggggggggg Osborne wins again

So the start of a new Total9Ball series and it was a great start for Craig Osborne as he proves once again just how talented he is. Total9Ball has listened to feedback and created a new Open Handicap Series. The entry fees on this occasion have been kept low to try to attract as many players as possible and although we had a good entry level of 23 for the first event, we hope more players support this brilliant new series. The basis behind this new series is to offer all players the opportunity to compete in regular events at different venues, playing a variety of formats and disciplines at an affordable price.

Total9Ball have decided however to make a few changes to the series to help things run better and not shut any players out. The Grand Final will not be open to players who have attended at least one event of this series, however Grand Finalists will be selected based on how many event each player attends as we do have a maximum amount of players for the Grand Final. So get supporting these events and book your place at the Grand Finals.

The penultimate event of this season’s GB 9 Ball Tour has reached its finale, with Imran Majid, Mark Gray, Mark Lunn and Adam Stevens claiming the silverware at the Daventry Court Hotel, Northamptonshire.

The 2014 Southern Masters final was contested once again by two of Britain’s finest cueists – Phil Burford looking for his maiden Southern Masters title, and Imran Majid looking for his third.

Majid was absent from the last event back in June due to his participation in the World 9-ball Championships, so he was determined to hit the ground running at this event. His opening contest saw him face leading Spaniard Juan Carlos Exposito in a tricky encounter, but Majid saw him off 10-6 to put himself through to the winners qualification bracket. Here he was to face Gary Bullocke, but his dazzling shirts didn’t replicate into dazzling pool as the Maharaja once again secured a 10-6 victory. This put him through to a last 16 encounter with Midlands Classic champion Chris Hall. It was another 10-6 scoreline and another win to Majid, a win which saw him into a quarter final tussle with Wolverhampton’s Darryn Walker. Majid saw that the business end was approaching and turned his game up a gear, seeing off Walker 10-4 and setting up a semi final against Italy’s Bruno Muratore. Majid’s dominance continued and he saw himself through 10 racks to 5, putting him into his first final since winning the GB9 British Grand Prix all the way back in November 2012.
