MEZZ CUES BALTIC POOL LEAGUE GRAND FINAL 2017

Mezz Cues Baltic Pool League Grand Final was held in Tallinn, Estonia. This time the venue of the event was a newly built pool hall Hill-Hill. As always the final stage was for the best 32 players from overall and best 16 from Women’s and Oldboys rating. This time there were no major shocks as the overall event was won by Pijus Labutis (LIT) and the Womens and Oldboys event was taken by this years European number one women player Margaret Fefilova.

Battle of the generations

The overall division final was very spectacular as there was two very different players in it. Firstly the young and flamboyant young gun Labutis and then a very experienced calculating cue master Tuomas Riipinen from Finland. This match had it all with the leader changing four times. Therefore the credit goes out to both of the finalists, but there may be only one winner and this time it was Labutis by a score 10:6. On the way to the final Labutis was well over Belarussian Vadim Papizh and Riipinen got the best of Kristjan Kuusik from Estonia with both matches ending 10:5.

The young Lithuanian has been very consistent in this years league. Labutis managed to attend in total four of the five finals this year and won three of them and actually in the last qualifying event winning none else than Riipinen. As Riipinen stressed that this is his comeback to big pool hopefully we see another great battle of these fine athletes the next year as well.

Fefilova conquered the event

Fefilova, currently ranked as number one in European women rating, showed good class and composure by not letting anyone get close to winning her during the whole event. In the preliminary rounds it was Anna Prisja?nuka (Latvia) that got the closest as Fefilova won 6:4 and Prisja?nuka got another chance in the final. However Fefilova sihfted gear in the final and cruised to a comfortable 8:2 victory. It must be said that the match was not that one-sided as the scoreline says, but some crucial mistakes by Prisja?nuka in the deciding moments and hence the score. Fefilova and Prisja?nuka did not leave any chances to the oldboys in the semi finals as they both beat their opponents 8:3, Fefilova showed no mercy to Genadijs Kaminskis (Latvia) and Prisja?nuka made it all clear with Petteri Karapuu (Finland).

Although Fefilova was not the number one in the overall ranking finishing third after Kaminskis and Prisja?nuka, she made her point by beating both of them in the final rounds of the grand final. Her season in the Mezz Cues Baltic Pool League went upwards throughout the season as she won all three finals she participated in, and all the three finals were the three last stages of the league.

Another great season has finished.

The event had a whopping 131 participants throughout the year which surely makes it one of the most popular league in Europe. The participants came from Belarus, Estonia, Finland, Germany, India, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland and Russia.
