quickly  told.  Ouschan  has made  mistakes that could hardly  be ever witnessed from  her. Poikkijoki played strong and rock solid and punished Ouschan for every  mistake she made.  And  there  were  many  of  them. Ouschan  even  once  missed  the  8-ball  and pocketed  in  a wrong  pocket.  She seemed  to be completely  off  the roll.  When being asked after  the  match  whether  she  would  be something  like  Ouschan’s   bogey  opponent, Poikkijoki  said:  „Yea,  I  think I  am  in  that  role these  days.  It  is  the  fourth  time  that  I  have beaten  her.  The  difference  between  me  and other players is  that  I  punish her for the mistakes she makes  while most others don’t do that.“ Now Poikkijoki will play  the final match with Line Kjoersvik (NOR) who  eliminated  Tamara  Peeters-Rademakers  (NED)  with  6:3.  Every  time Poikkijoki was able to take out Ouschan from an event, she could never win the event  but always had to settle for  second place.  Will be be able to change this today?
In  another  great  and  tight  match,  unheralded  Jim Chawki  (SWE)  clearly prevailed over Niels  Feijen (NED) with 8:5.
The final matches in 8-ball will begin at 20:00 CET.
The  event  is  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 or contact our press office.
