Semi-Finalist Alan Coton had a good run at the Nottingham 9 Ball Open.
Nottingham photos and statistics
Established top UK Pro Phil Burford took the honours at the Nottingham 9 Ball Open this weekend, the pool tournament run by Kevin Simpson.
Burford's protagonist in the final, Chris Buckmaster, paid tribute to his opponent saying, "I have to say Phil was my toughest opponent of the day, although the final was not a classic, we both made quite a few mistakes and I found it hard to keep my focus after such a long day."
Buckmaster also complimented the organisers too, "The day was very enjoyable, Kev ran the tournament very well, which included a very tasty pie buffet which was a nice treat!"
The event followed the now traditional format of group stages followed by a single elimination round from the last 16 onwards, and all the entry fees were returned to the players as prize money.
There's not long to organise your trip to Germany, but the prize fund for this event is not something to be ignored, and if that's not enough for you, there's a mouth-watering challenge match between Niels Feijen and Oliver Ortmann to add to the excitement too!
Dutch pool superstar cuts through all opposition to take title
240 players participated in the “Dynamic French Open” here in Sucy-en-Brie, representing no fewer than 33 different countries. The eventual winner was Niels Feijen (NED) defeating 15 year old Austrian Mario He in the final.
Some very big names made it to Cambridge this weekend including Maltese snooker superstar Tony Drago, GB9 Supremo Imran Majid, London's Anthony Ginn, and even players from as far north as Yorkshire like Andy Appleton and Lee Rigby, and as far south as Bournemouth like Simon and Louis Clarke, all of whom braved the snow to join the fray.
The club was jam-packed and has been raking in a small fortune lately as the staff have been working full-pelt for a good while now, and today was no different with pool, football and poker events all happening at the same time.
There were a couple of new rules mentioned at this event, most notably the WPA have decided that a ten-ball made on the break is always re-spotted, no matter where it's pocketed.
From early on it became clear that this was going to be a traditional late finish here as the 47 runners played the new double elimination format and there were still several matches to play before the last 16 matches started as the clock was approaching 5.30pm already, and we weren't entirely sure that anyone had been eliminated at all yet!!!
