Orfanidis was  able  to  gain  a  quick  10-point-advantage  over  Vujanic  in  the early  stage of the match. Though she tried to keep the pace with  Orfanidis,  Vujanic  started  missing  more and  more  shots.  Probably  her nerves played a  trick  on  her.  Orfanidis,  who  is  one  of  the most  experienced  players   in  the  women’s division,  used  her  chances  ice-cold  and never  gave up her  advantage.  To  the contrary,  she  even  widened  the  gap  to  Vujanic  and  remained  victorious  with 75:45 in the end. Her victory  was never in danger. She will now enter the single elimination stage of the final 32 players  while Vujanic needs one more victory on the loser’s side. In  the  men’s division,  last  Euro-Tour  winner  Konstantin  Stepanov  (RUS) smashed  Fabio  Petroni  (ITA)  surprisingly  clear  with  100:18.  Stepanov  only needed  two  innings  to  make  it  to  the  single  elimination  round  of  the  last  64 players. Petroni has  another  chance in the loser’s bracket  of  the event. Petroni will  be  joined  on  the  loser’s  side  by  the  French  straight  pool  expert  Stephan Cohen who lost 30:100 to Sweden’s Andreas Gerwen.
The  event  is  be  hosted  by  the  European  Governing  Body  for  Pool,  the European  Pocket  Billiard  Federation  (EPBF)  and  organized  by  International Billiard Promotion (IBP).  For further information and reference please go to the federation  website  www.epconline.eu  ,  follow  us  on  twitter  @EPBF_News   or contact our press office.
