Deklerck, Matas and Bijsterbosch win the 10-ball titles

At the Dynamic Billard European Championships for Men, Women and Wheelchair Athletes in the Salgados Palace Hotel in Albufeira, Portugal, the gold medals in 10-ball have been awarded. Kurt Deklerck (BEL), Amalia Matas (ESP) and Marc Bijsterbosch (NED) have taken the titles in their respective division.

It is the first European Champion title for the 23-year-old Bijsterbosch. After having eliminated his teammate and favoured player Niels Feijen (NED) 10:8 in the quarterfinal match, Bijsterbosch took on Francisco Sanchez-Ruiz (ESP) in the semi-final. He stood tall and took the victory with 10:6 which brought him into the final match. His opponent there was Christian Sparrenlowv-Fischer (SWE), another underdog that was not expected in the final match at all. Fischer eliminated Gabor Solymosi (HUN) clearly with 10:3 in the quarterfinal and Denis Grabe (EST) in a heartbreaking semi-final with 10:9. The final match was on between two newbies. In the beginning, both players were very concentrated and played equally strong.

"Read More..." for the details.

The scoreboard proved that none of the two was able to gain clear advantage over the other player. Bijsterbosch was leading 6:5 after 11 racks. But then he seemed to get momentum. His game worked, the table always unfolded very friendly for him and he used his chances ice-cold whereas Fischer seemed to struggle. This little proof of weakness was enough for the Dutch to run away from Fischer and finally take the match with 10:6 in the end to win his first gold medal on European level in the menís division. However, the silver medal is also a ver high achievement for Sparrenloev-Fischer.

Top Eight Men:
1. Marc Bijsterbosch (NED)
2. Christian Sparrenloev-Fischer (SWE)
3. Denis Grabe (EST)
Francisco Sanchez-Ruiz (ESP)
5. Ruslan Chinakhov (RUS)
Gabor Solymosi (HUN)
Ivar Saris (NED)
Niels Feijen (NED)

In the womenís division, Amalia Matas was also another newbie to a final match in the European Championships. On her way into the final match, she defeated strong Kristina Tkach (RUS) 7:6, then Kateryna Polovinchuk (UKR) in the semi-final with 7:2 and took her spot in the final match. He opponent there was Ana Gradisnik (SLO) who remained victorious over Eylul Kibaroglu (TUR) 7:4 and Oliwia Czuprynska (POL) 7:4. Gradisnik also had her first appearance in a final match of the European Championship in the womenís division. She collected three silver medals in the girls division back then. So the match was as open as in the menís division. No favourite player, no underdogÖ all square in the beginning. But unlike in the menís division, the womenís final was a very one-sided affair. Matas started really strong and continued to play on that level for the duration of the whole final match. She only allowed Gradisnik to snatch one single rack off her, winning the match and the title with 7:1 over a frustrated Gradisnik.

Top Eight Women:
1. Amalia Matas (ESP)
2. Ana Gradisnik (SLO)
3. Oliwia Czuprynska (POL)
Kateryna Polovinchuk (UKR)
5. Eylul Kibaroglu (TUR)
Natalia Seroshtan (RUS)
Tina Vogelmann (GER)
Kristina Tkach (RUS)

In the wheelchair division, the final match was also not packed with regulars. Kurt Deklerck (BEL) encountered Roy Kimberley (GBR). The match looked for a long time as a clear affair in favour of Kimberley. After 5 racks, the score was 4:1 in favour of the Brit. But then the tide turned in the match. Deklerck got stronger and the match was on again. After 10 racks, the match was all levelled at 5:5 so the deciding 11th rack had to be played. There, Deklerck had the match ball in his hands but missed it by a small margin. He left a long shot for Kimberley who in turn also missed this shot. Probably the pressure was too high for him at this moment. He left an easy shot into the side pocket for Deklerck who pocketed the winning 10-ball and took the title in the wheelchair division.

Top Eight Wheelchair Athletes:
1. Kurt Deklerck (BEL)
2. Roy Kimberley (GBR)
3. Jouni Tahti (FIN)
Fred Dinsmore (IRL)
5. Tony Southern (GBR)
Manfred Gattinger (GER)
7. Daniel Luton (GBR)
David Himpe (BEL)

Europeís elite male and female pool athletes will enter another 9-ball tournament for prize money and valuable ranking points.
