BWPPA HEADS BACK TO BARNSLEY FOR EVENT 2.

All wheelchair cue-sport players invited to compete as the BWPPA 20014 Season continues.

The 2014 tour commenced at the New Pool Academy at Stoke Mandeville at Event 1 as Tony Southern took the GNO Southern 9 Ball open with a win over Aslam Abubaker.

Abubaker retains the top spot, but it looks like being a 3-way battle right to the end of the season, between Abubaker, Southern and Roy Kimberley for the Predator Ikon-2 cue that goes with it.

In the last few months, the Gentlemen’s Night Out, Kamui Tips, Simonis, Predator and other sponsors have agreed to continue to support the tour in 2014 and hopefully beyond.

LEEDS plays host to women snooker players from 13 countries over Easter

A stellar international cast will be competing in the £5,000 Eden Resources World Championship at the Northern Snooker Centre.

Players from as far afield as Russia, Australia, Hong Kong and Brazil will be cueing up in a bid to stop Reanne Evans claiming a record tenth successive title.

Evans, 28, from Dudley, West Midlands, is sure to start as favourite for the World Ladies Billiards & Snooker Association’s blue riband event.

But she faces stiff opposition from world number one Maria Catalano (also from Dudley), the current IBSF world and European champion Wendy Jans (Belgium), two-time IBSF champion Ng On Yee (Hong Kong) and former European champion Tatjana Vasiljeva (Latvia).

The 2013/14 Eden Resources Festival of Snooker (and Billiards) in Association with Northern Snooker Centre includes a Seniors (40+) Championship, an Under-21 Championship, Ladies Pairs, Mixed Pairs, Billiards and a Plate for those not qualifying for the knockout stage of the World Championship.

Souquet and Ouschan win the Dynamic Billard North Cyprus Open

Ralf Souquet (GER) and Jasmin Ouschan (AUT) have won the titles at the Dynamic Billard North Cyprus Open Euro-Tour.

In the men’s division, Ralf Souquet played at his best. He took down great names like Ivo Aarts (NED) 9:0, Imran Majid (GBR) 9:3, Mieszko Fortunski (POL) 9:3 and in the final match Karl Boyes (GBR) with 9:4. The final match was dominated by Souquet from start to finish. A bit scrappy in the beginning, Souquet turned out to have the far better break shot than Boyes. He pocketed almost every time a vll on his break and ran out 4 racks without even allowing Boyes into the table. The Brit however had to struggle with his break shot. Most of the time, he came up dry with no ball down or not enough balls crossing the kitchen line. This situation was taken advantage of by Souquet without any mercy. The BCA Hall of Famer played up to his standard and rightfully took the final match with 9:4. „I did not have the best two weeks before at the European Championships“, stated Souquet after the match. „I won a bronze Medal in 9-Ball and one in the team competition. Normally, I am aiming for more“, he added. „I am happy that I found my game in the Euro-Tour and that I was able to perform on that level“, mentioned the likable German.

IPA UK Blackball Pool Open from the Britannia Adelphi Hotel next weekend

After the dust settled following the Lakeside World Blackball Championships in January the tour moves onward and upward with the next stop the UK Open this weekend coming.

The World’s best players will once again go toe to toe to define the champion, with the UK title plus the amateur and professional events as well as ranking points all up for grabs, not to mention the trophies and prize money.

Most of the familiar names are in attendance including the remarkably consistent Ronan McCarthy, Rankings number one Gareth Hibbott, Welsh Wizards Jordan Shepherd, Craig Marsh and Ben Davies, former World Champion Jason Twist, and Liverpool’s number one Andy Macdonald, but they will all have to bring their “A” game if they want to get past Word Championship runner up Clint I’Anson who has to be the one to beat.

Feijen, Ouschan and Tähti go for Gold

Niels Feijen (NED), Jasmin Ouschan (AUT) and Jouni Tähti (FIN) conquered the Gold Medals at the 2014 Dynamic Billard European Championships for Men, Women and Wheelchair Athletes.

Niels Feijen did it! He defended his 9-ball title from last year and defeated the surprise star of the European Championships, Jürgen Jenisy (AUT) clearly with 9:4. He showed his dominance this year with victories over players such tough as Imran Majid (GBR) or Albin Ouschan (AUT). In seven matches, Feijen only allowed his opponents to take 20 racks off him. That is an average of less than three racks per match. Feijen played at an absolute peak performance and it will be very interesting to see whether he will be able to maintain his form for the men’s Euro-Tour which will start tomorrow morning.

Total 9 Ball - Money Multiplier Event 1

Saturday 5th April 2014 was the date chosen to launch Total9Ball's latest event to their already busy calendar ‘The Money Multiplier’ held at the fabulous St Albans Hurricane Room. 32 pre-paid amateur 9ballers were in for a treat as T9B offered a ridiculous value event. Each player was guaranteed a minimum of two matches… The first a race to 9 and the second race to 7. The entry fee was kept low at £30 for T9B members and £35 for non-members. There was a whopping £600 cash guaranteed for a jackpot winner, that’s an unbelievable 20x the entry fee. The event secured its 32 players within 12 hours of being announced which was a great boast for the T9B staff and we fully expect event two to fill even quicker. The date for Money Multiplier Event Two will be announced at 8pm this evening on Pro9.
