Jasmin Ouschan grabs another tournament and tour title

Jasmin Ouschan (AUT) just won the women's Euro-Tour in Treviso, Italy. She defeated Ina Kaplan (GER) clearly with 7:2 in the final match.

Ouschan did not have smooth sailing in the tournament. To the contrary, she lost her first match with Oliwia Czuprynska (POL) 5:7 and had to make her way all through the loser’s side. She did so and came up with an impressing performance: victories over Louise Furberg (SWE) 7:1, Kristina Zlateva (BEL) 7:1, Ouija Tiihonen (FIN) 7:1, Ana Mazhirina (RUS) 7:2 and again Oliwia Czuprynska (POL) 7:6 booked her a seat in the final match with Ina Kaplan. Kaplan had defeated Katarzyna Wesolowska (POL) in the semi-final with 7:2.

Dinsmore does the hat-trick, and takes the ‘Predator’ British 9-ball Championships and the no.1 spot as BWPPA 2014 tour concludes

The final tour stop of 2014 for Europe’s largest wheelchair pool tour was held at the Wheelchair Pool Academy in Stoke Mandeville from 15-16 November, with the Predator British Wheelchair 9-ball Championship, which attracted a strong field, including a new player on tour John White. This was the final event for some of the tours players before heading off to the World 9 Ball Championships in Finland from 21-23 November.

Fred Dinsmore became only the 3rd player in the tour's history to top the tour rankings at the end of a season, as he won his third event in a row defeating former no 1, Roy Kimberley 7-3. Dinsmore went into the event knowing only finishing above Aslam Abubaker and Tony Southern could keep him in the top spot.

Dinsmore got his campaign off to a good start with a 7-0 whitewash of Nicky Oliver, and then hammered a out of sorts Southern 7-1, who then went on to lose 7-6 to Daniel Lee to drop out of contention for the top spot, and finish the season in 3rd place.

Wildman goes Jackpot Wild at Total9Ball Amateur Series Grand Finals

The Total9Ball Amateur Series Grand Finals took place at St Albans Hurricane Room on Saturday 6th December. The Grand Final was a celebration of the completion of another fantastic season of the T9B Amateur Series. As promised Total9Ball added Ł300 to the prize fund so it was sure to be another brilliant event. The T9B 2x double chance format was used meaning if one player was to remain undefeated throughout the whole event they would collect the Winner's Prize of Ł350, the Runner-Up's prize of Ł205 and the Jackpot Bonus of Ł250 totaling Ł805. Surely this was unlikely to happen though as the Jackpot has been available for 3 whole seasons now that’s over 25 events and never been won!!!

Thanks to Dynamic Billard for sponsoring this event - read on for the thrilling full report.

Europe storm to another MC victory

TEAM EUROPE won the 2014 PartyPoker Mosconi Cup, beating the USA 11-5 in front of a boisterous crowd at the Tower Circus, Blackpool. The score line was their joint second best winning margin and leaves the Americans with some soul-searching to do as they attempt to get back into competitive shape for the annual transatlantic 9 ball showdown.

Leading 9-5 going into the final session, the Europeans wanted just two points for the glory and two matches were all that were needed as first Darren Appleton beat Shane Van Boening 5-2 and then Nikos Ekonomopoulos did the same by a similar score to seal a one-sided victory for Europe.

For the winning captain, Johan Ruijsink, it was his seventh and last Mosconi Cup in charge and remains undefeated, an astounding record in any sport.

He said, “It is humbling to win again. The players played great and kept their chin up when they had to take something on the chin. In the last couple of matches we played our best pool.

“We knew America would come out with Shane twice and we weren’t afraid but we were aware that if he got going and they had Justin Hall third who has played well this week, they might get some momentum and it is 9-8 and you might be in a bit of trouble.

Europe within two points of five-peat

EUROPE WON three of the four Wednesday night matches to leave themselves four points clear of their American opponents and within two points of their fifth consecutive PartyPoker Mosconi Cup win following a torrid night at the Tower Circus in Blackpool.

The Americans needed a big session as they trailed 6-4 from the previous night but bad rolls and some poor performances ensured that didn’t happen as the Euros increased their vice-like grip on the coveted trophy.

“The Americans are still breaking well but the situations were a bit tougher,” said Euro skipper Johan Ruijsink.

"We didn’t play our best earlier, it was scrappy at the start of the night but if you win scrappy matches that is huge. If you don’t play well but win that hurts the opposition.

“Anything can happen in any match but it would be an ideal plan to immediately step to ten points with Darren tomorrow. We don’t want to be over confident because it is the Mosconi Cup and if they pull one or two matches back we are in trouble again and the pressure is back on us. I’d like to win it in the first three matches tomorrow.”

Europe increase lead but US still fighting

EUROPE INCREASED their lead at the 2014 PartyPoker Mosconi Cup as they won the second session 3-2 to take the overall score to 6-4 with a potential 11 matches to complete. The US though, topped and tailed the session with wins but looked slack in the middle as the Euros asserted themselves with three wins.

Trailing 6-3 going into the final match, it took a moment of magic from Shane Van Boening as he executed a hugely difficult shot to perfection to set up the US win and keep their Mosconi Cup hope alive.

Commented US captain Mark Wilson, “The last point is naturally very important. We ended on a high after struggling through a few matches. We feel good about our chances from here on in.

“Shane’s shot was one of the most gutsy shots you will ever see anybody attempt. You have to be so dedicated with every molecule in your body to come up with a shot like that in a big moment, a big match. He is world-class and it gives all the guys confidence.”
