2022 European Open Day 4 | Only 16 Remain With Filler Through

Joshua Filler passed the test of Mosconi Cup teammate Eklent Kaçi and the USA's Oscar Dominguez to reach the Last 16 of the inaugural European Open Pool Championship at Hotel Esperanto, Fulda, Germany live on the Matchroom Pool Facebook/YouTube and Matchroom.Live.

Schedule / Scores

Filler had a good day of it coming from behind to defeat Kaçi 9-8 when his goose had looked cooked when Kaçi had a 5-9 combo to seal victory at 8-7 only for the Albanian to offer the gift that the Killer needed to get back into it. Kaçi didn't get a look in from then on as Filler broke in the final rack but it was far from easy with the 7, 8 and 9 all glued together and the rack penned underneath it. Filler kept his cool in the moment though despite the glaring problem to complete victory and set up a Last 32 tie with Oscar Dominguez of the USA.

Dominguez had came from 4-1 down against Tyler Styer to peg him back at 5-5 and 6-6 before pulling through to meet his old Mosconi Cup rival to reach the Last 16.

Filler came into the contest on the back of two hill-hill showings in his last three matches in the tournament and he was in no mood for a similar scenario. Filler hit the front early on but Dominguez was playing freely and causing the German a whole heap of problems. The home crowd were out for their star man and he delivered a 10-7 victory to book his spot in the Last 16 in what proved to be a successful day that also saw him become the first player on Team Europe for the 2022 Mosconi Cup off the Live Nineball World Rankings.

European Open Day 3 | Hometown Hero Hohmann Heads Home

The inaugural European Open Pool Championship in Fulda, Germany at Hotel Esperanto hit the midway point as the field was reduced to the Last 64 live on the Matchroom Pool Facebook/YouTube and Matchroom.Live.

Bracket / Scores

Joshua Filler's encounter with wife Pia was the talk of the tournament as the pair met on the biggest stage for the first time live on the Matchroom Pool Facebook page. Joshua started out strongest to take the opening rack before Pia came back with her own rack to level at 1-1. The contest was played out in great spirit as the pair embraced before lagging with various applause and fist bumps keeping the atmosphere light-hearted despite a spot in the Last 64 resting on the match. It was Joshua who did steal the advantage though as he settled it in a 9-1 win.

  10 Ball Break & Dish - Event 3 GB9 Event 2022
Posted by admin
on Friday, August 12 2022 @ 10:59:01 UTC  (177 reads)

An explanation of what is going on...

For a little extra fun at the tour, we pinched this idea from the USA - a Ten Ball Break and Dish competition... I sell raffle tickets to generate the prize fund, and three tickets are drawn out to attempt the challenge - the player with the first ticket has the best chance, 10% of the prize fund per ball potted, in this case £2,600, so £260 per ball, then the second and third tickets can have a crack at 10% of whatever is left in the pot... There's a big advantage to being the first drawn out, because if the first player takes all the money then there's nothing for the remaining players. You can stop at any time and take the cash, but if you miss, scratch, foul or break dry then you lose it all. Any money not won is rolled over to the next event.

Sanchez Ruiz Claims Third Euro Tour Crown

Reporter: Luke Riches on behalf of the EPBF
Photography: ©EPBF


FRANCISCO SANCHEZ RUIZ is the Dynamic Billard Petrich Open champion after another blistering display as he beat Klenti Kaci 9 – 6 in a high-quality final at the Petrich Arena in the southern Bulgarian town. Having won his maiden title in Lasko, Slovenia in August last year, he followed that up just ten weeks later, winning the Antalya Open for back-to-back titles.

He took a runners-up spot to Niels Feijen last time out in Austria and now completes a hat-trick of wins on the prestigious Euro Tour. The final was a pulsating affair with both players at the tops of their respective games and in the end, it was very small margins that separated them.

Sanchez-Ruiz was thrilled with his third Tour title, “I feel very excited. This year I’m playing really good and with so much confidence but to be honest in the final I was a little bit lucky but I took my chances and I’m really happy.

“My first Euro Tour was in Lasko and after that everything changed in my mind with that win and I can’t wait for the next tournament. Sometimes I play fast, especially with the shot clock where you must do but this year I’m playing really good and feel so confident every time I play. I don’t really feel too much pressure so let’s see what happens during the rest of the year,” he concluded.
