AMERICAN 14.1 CHAMPIONSHIPS - Report by Phil Capelle

The Final – Darren Appleton 150 – Thorsten Hohmann 94

This rematch between the two finalists of the World 14.1 Championship got off to a super slow start – especially considering the firepower that both brought to the table. After a secondary break shot left Appleton with no shot, and no safety, he took three straight fouls, losing 18 points. And Hohmann fouled as well, so after Appleton did manage to run the first rack, the score was tied at -1 to -1 in a game to 150 points.

Appleton went on to run 42 and lead after three racks, 27 to -1. The players traded opportunities before Hohmann ran 56 to lead, 81 to 29. Appleton ran 29, played a safety, then ran 27 more and was leading, 85 to 81 when he missed a tough shot after making the break shot.

Hohmann ran the remaining 13 to get to 94, but he missed the break shot and splattered the balls all over the table – and Appleton was off and running as he went on to win the match with an impressive run of 65 and out. Appleton is now a two time winner of this event while Hohmann has won it one time.

AMERICAN 14.1 CHAMPIONSHIPS - Report by Phil Capelle

Semi-Final #2 – Darren Appleton 150 – Mika Immonen 113

This could have been titled The Battle of the Missed Break Shots. After some rather sloppy play Immonen managed to run 25 balls to take a 64-30 lead. But he left himself with a seldom played sharp backcut side pocket break shot – and he overcut it badly.

Appleton took advantage of the widely spread rack and cleared that frame, then three more, to move ahead, 86-64. But he was forced to play a long distance side rail key ball and he came up short of his position zone, then missed a long backcut break shot, returning the favor.

Immonen showed his gratitude by embarking on a run of 48 before missing. He left the table with a lead of 112-86. Appleton responded with a run of 21, closing the gap to 112-107, before missing a long shot on the key ball.

Immonen made the last ball and set up a thin cut down-the-rail break shot. He used a bit of inside english, and that led to a slight overcut, as so often happens on that type of shot. Appleton was now in his closer mode, and he ran that rack and two more, completing a run of 43 and out.

The two finalists at the World 14.1 Tournament in July will have a rematch, and Appleton will surely be out for some sweet revenge over Hohmann, his fellow European straight pool master.

AMERICAN 14.1 CHAMPIONSHIPS - Report by Phil Capelle

Semi-Final #1 – Thorsten Hohmann 150 – Warren Kiamco 65

Kiamco ran the first rack but scratched on his break shot to take a seat with a 13-0 lead. Hohmann ran 40, but missed his ball before the key ball. He had scratched earlier in the game, so his lead was 39-13.

Over the next seven racks they traded short runs, misses, and scratches, but Hohmann did manage to maintain a 20 something ball lead, and he lead 83-65 when Kiamco missed. Hohmann then ran 67 and out, the last six conceded by Kiamco on an open rack.

Hohmann will play the winner of the second semi-final between Mika Immonen and Darren Appleton. Each of the three remaining players has won this title once, and each hopes to join Danny Harriman as the only two time winners of this event.
