Eklent Kaci (ALB) 7 – 2 Earl Strickland (USA)
Shane Van Boening (USA) 7 – 2 Kelly Fisher (ENG)
Petri Makkonen (FIN) 4 – 7 Justin Sajich (AUS)
Chris Melling (ENG) 3 – 7 Matt Edwards (NZL)
Wu Jiaqing (CHN) 4 – 7 Alex Pagulayan (CAN)
Fedor Gorst (RUS) 7 – 2 Naoyuki Oi (JPN)
Albin Ouschan (AUT) 7 – 2 Jeffrey De Luna (PHI)
David Alcaide (ESP) 7 – 3 Francisco Sanchez Ruiz (ESP)

THE NEW LOOK 26TH annual Dafabet World Pool Masters got underway at the Victoria Stadium in Gibraltar with eight matches over the opening day as the event included 24 players for the first time in its history.

There are eight seeded players who will enter the event in the first round while the other 16 competitors competed today in the preliminary round to determine which eight players went through to face the seeds.

The seeded players are:

European Champion: Konrad Juszczyszyn (POL)
Ladies World No.1: Han Yu (CHN)
Men’s World No.1: Alexander Kazakis (GRE)
Mosconi Cup MVP: Skyler Woodward (USA)
Previous Champion: Niels Feijen (NED)
Asian Champion: Ko Pin-yi (TPE)
US Open Champion: Jayson Shaw (SCO)
World 9 Ball Champion: Joshua Filler (GER)

Such was the high standard of the field that there were plenty of 50/50 games on the opening day. Alex Pagulayan, a former winner of this event, beat Wu Jiaqing, one of the favourites for this event, while young Russian Fedor Gorst, the 2017 WPA World Junior Champion, continued his emergence with a big win over Naoyuki Oi.

Albin Ouschan enjoyed a comfortable win over Philippines’ Jeff De Luna and in the final match of the afternoon, 2017 champ, David Alcaide beat compatriot Francisco Sanchez Ruiz. Both players had previously competed at the same venue a couple of weeks ago when they competed in snooker’s Gibraltar Open which Sanchez Ruiz particularly impressing against world ranked snooker players.

The evening saw a comfortable win for two-time Masters champ Shane Van Boening, whilst the opening match featured former world no.1 Klenti Kaci against 1997 Masters winner Earl Strickland. The Albanian ran out a 7-2 winner but Strickland was his usual incendiary self as he bickered with the crowd and did everything he could to unsettle his opponent but ultimately undid himself.

Commented Kaci, “I enjoyed every single moment of the match. I was happy to play Earl because I have been watching him since I was very young, he was one of my inspirations.”

Earl didn’t quite see it that way, “I can’t play I guess, that’s what it is. Those guys over there were sharking me the whole time. They singled me out over there. I’d like to see them do that in golf, they’d put him in jail.

  Sanderson reigns supreme at Solihull 9 Ball Series Event 2

Sanderson reigns supreme at Event 2

Report by: Matt Hawthorn
Second City 9 Ball

Saturday 9th March 2019 saw Rileys Sports Bar, Solihull, host the second event of the Solihull 9 Ball Series. 45 players were in attendance all with an eye on gaining series ranking points, and the small matter of the £440 first prize. This promised to be a fiercely contested tournament, and it certainly delivered. The format for the day would be Double Elimination to the last 16, Single Elim from the last 16 onwards, races to 7 on both sides of the draw (including the final).

The draw was made on the evening of Wednesday 6th March and threw together together some interesting matchups. Zoltan Kojsza and Paul Taylor, both making their series debuts, faced off in the 1st round with Kojsza advancing comfortably 7-3. Darren Saxby continued his unfortunate Solihull tradition of drawing Elliott Sanderson and, despite a valiant effort, was sent left by his young opponent. Kurt Weaver came from behind to beat Andy Carter 7-5, and more victories followed to ensure Weaver would make the last 16. Terry Challenger also emerged unscathed from the double elimination phase, conceding just 5 racks in his opening 3 matches. Mark Eardley failed to register a win at event 1 but made amends this time with consecutive 7-5 wins against Matt Hawthorn and Ryan O'Neil. O'Neil kept his challenge alive by edging out the voice of the GB9 Chris Patient (7-4).

Benji dominant in Solihull 9 Ball Series Event 1

Report by: Matt Hawthorn

There's a new series of 9-Ball Pool tournaments in the Midlands, and Solihull is where it's at.

Thirty-seven budding participants headed to Riley's Sports Bar for Second City 9 Ball's curtain-raising event. The flagship club, with it's three-metre HD screen and twelve freshly cleaned nine-foot tables, was all set for the day's play.

Local big-hitters Alan 'Chopper' Coton and Tony 'The Quick' Fry faced off early on, with The Chopper coming out on top 7-4. Chris Patient survived a nervy final rack decider against Coventry's Luke Hart, before beating Elliott Sanderson impressively 7-5, sending the talented Yorkshireman to the loser's side.

On the adjacent table meanwhile Shaun Berrisford, a relative newcomer to the game, pulled out a great win against Roy Kimberley, likewise at hill-hill.

Mark Stephenson had a solid run to the quarter-finals, despite drawing arguably the two tournament favourites along the way in Stewart Colclough and Benji Buckley, the latter finally putting an end to his run.

"Killer" Filler wins the Dynamic Billard Leende Open 2019

Joshua Filler (GER) just won his first Euro-Tour tournament, the Dynamic Billard Leende Open 2019, with an impressive 9:7 final victory over Ruslan Chinakhov (RUS).

The final match was determined by high class pool billiards by both players. The pressure and the heat was on for the athletes. They took racks in turn and kept the match open for a long time. After 11 racks, Chinakhov missed an easy shot on the 6-ball when he could have gotten a 2-rack-advantage over Filler. But instead, the young German who just claimed his first World Champion title in 9-ball last year, levelled the match at 6:6. Then, he broke dry and gave the table back to Chinakhov. A safety battle occurred with Filler coming out as the winner. But now he showed some nerves and missed a makable 2-ball. However, the Russian could not capitalise from Filler’s mistake and allowed Filler to get to 7:6. The next rack was a break-and-run by Chinakhov, so the heat was really on at 7:7. With Filler on the break shot, the World Champion kept his nerves together and got on the hill with 8:7. Then, Chinakhov broke and to his horror the cue ball scratched, giving Filler an open table with ball in hand. The layout was not easy, but Filler stayed as cold as ice and ran the rack, winning the match with 9:7 over Chinakhov who also performed extremely well during the Dynamic Billard Leende Open 2019.

„I can’t even describe how happy I am“, stated Filler when asked after the awards ceremony. „It was a long day with some really tough matches form me and now I’m really tired but extremely satisfied“, Filler added. When asked, was his next goal is after winning his first World Champion title a few months ago and now winning his first Euro-Tour, Filler’s answer came without hesitation: „US Open Champion“ !

Joshua Filler Closes the 2018 WPS Season as the Predator Grand Final Champion

Article - Shirley Ang/WPS
Photography - ©E. Dionisio/WPS

Shortly after Jayson Shaw was selected over Joshua Filler for the European Mosconi Cup team with the final wildcard pick, the fiery young German realized a couple of things.

First, he had much work to do to become the professional pool player that he believed he could be. Additionally, what better time to start than now? Under the instruction of coach Michael Wahl, Filler started working on his game between four-to-eight hours a day in the weeks after the selections were made.

The new commitment continued to pay dividends this weekend, as Filler fought his way through an elite field of 50 players to win the Predator Grand Final, defeating countryman and mentor Ralf Souquet 17-11 in the finals Sunday night at Astoria’s Steinway Billiards. The victory was a continuation of a masterful and lucrative 30-day stretch for the 20-year-old, who bested Carlo Biado of the Philippines at the WPA World 9-Ball Championships late last month in Qatar.

“I played pretty well. It was a tough field,” Filler said. “I feel like in the second half I had a little more confidence.”
