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 men’s 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 women’s 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 women’s division. She collected three silver medals in the girls division back then. So the match was as open as in the men’s division. No favourite player, no underdog… all square in the beginning. But unlike in the men’s division, the women’s 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)

European Championships for Men, Women and Wheelchair Athletes

The major event of the EPBF, the Dynamic Billard European Championships for Men, Women and Wheelchair Athletes, will begin tomorrow at 09:00 GMT.

The host venue for the most prestigious event of the year will be the Nau Salgados Palace Resort in Albufeira, Portugal. It is a lovely golf resort on the Algarve and pool players will definitely be able to enjoy their leisure time there.

A total of 175 players from 34 European nations will participate in the Championships which mirrors the wide spread of pool billiards all over Europe.
Starting with straight pool men and women, the event will be packed with action and high class pool billiards for the duration of 11 days. 24 tables are set up and awaiting the players who are pouring in here today from all over Europe. The accreditation is on and open and player’s registration is done all day long. The team leader meeting will be held at 19:30 with the opening ceremony scheduled for 21:00 local time.


After straight pool, 10-ball, 8-ball, 9-ball and team competition will be played. The coveted trophies and medals will be handed out all week long until March 28th when the final match of the 9-ball competition will finish the European Championships.

But not the pool action in Albufeira at all. Starting March 30th, the Dynamic Billard Portuguese Open Euro-Tour and the Dynamic Billard Portuguese Women Open will kick off. Europe’s elite male and female pool athletes will enter another 9-ball tournament for prize money and valuable ranking points. Additionally, players from Asian and Middle Eastern countries will complete the field.

Every day, one match from the events will be shown LIVE on the Facebook page of the EPBF. All Facebook users may check out the high standard of quality which is provided for all the events and see what the Kozoom members receive all the time.

Results and schedule can be found at www.eurotouronline.com so why not come and check out all the LIVE action of the Dynamic Billard European Championships for Men, Women and Wheelchair Athletes starting Saturday 18th March at 09:00h GMT.

The event will be hosted by the European Governing Body for Pool, the European Pocket Billiard Federation (EPBF) and organized by International Billiard Promotion (IBP).
