Brother-sister duel in the Euro-Tour

The Dynamic Billard Slovenian Open had a novelty today: For the first time, brother and sister met in the second winner’s round. We are talking about Jasmin and Albin Ouschan from Austria.

They both had a walk-over in the first round. Then, in the first winner’s round, Jasmin defeated Andrey Seroshtan (RUS) 9:5 while Albin overcame Michael Lichodziejewski (POL) 9:7. This brought the two together in winner’s round two. They started out quite equally. Then, Jasmin committed two mistakes which was enough for her brother to snatch the needed points off her, winning the match with 9:4. „When we saw we had to play each other, we had to laugh“, stated Albin after the match. „Jasmin and I have played each other in competition six or seven years ago for the last time“. When asked whether they would now have a tense time, Albin added: „No, I think all is good. After the match we talked about what we are going to eat for dinner tonight“. Albin Ouschan will continue in the winner’s qualification round tomorrow while Jasmin needs to seek her luck in the loser’s round.

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.

Symons Too Good as he adds The T9B UK Championships to his List of Honours

The Total9ball UK Amateur 10 Ball Championships took place at St Albans Hurricane Room on Sunday 10th August. 28 players battled for the title of UK 10ball Champion, the prize money and the simply stunning glass globe trophies. As always T9B used a format that guaranteed players a minimum of two matches for their entry fee. The format this time would be 10ball, winner breaks, double elimination to the last 16 players, 8 winners were then randomly drawn against the eight one loss players. Prize money began at the Quarter Final stage but who would be the player to hit form at this event???

Total9ball again assembled a very strong field with some of the best amateur players the UK has to offer including... Courtney Symons, Dave Evans, Fabio Severo, Mark Parker, Phil Wildman, Richard Twomey, Tom Staveley and Tony Burton to name a few.

Matches kicked off just before 10.30am after the draw was completed by Ashik Nathwani. Courtney Symons normally so strong at T9B events was the first eliminated player at the previous event so a good start was important for him to begin to rebuild some winning confidence, a 7v2 win against Dave Henderson done the trick as Courtney looked focused for the job ahead.
