185 Players attending the Dynamic Billard Italian Open

The first tournament of the 2016 Dynamic Billard Euro-Tour series, the Italian Open is about to be launched in lovely Treviso, Italy, at the BHR Best Western Treviso Hotel. As many as 185 players have enrolled for the open event, coming from far away places like United Arab Emirates, Kuwait and even Vietnam. For the first time, the Vietnamese national pool team is present at a Euro-Tour event. They consist of four players and they are looking forward to gaining a lot of experience and knowledge during these upcoming days here in Northern Italy.

But also the Euro-Tour „regulars“ are gathering together here in Treviso, ready for action to compete against one another. The elite of European Pool-Billiards is here to see who will be the last man standing on Saturday night.

In the current rankings, Niels Feijen (NED) is leading clearly with his teammate Nick van den Berg (NED) being on Nr.2. However, both players played the final in Treviso in 2014 which will be deducted after this event so they will lose many points on Saturday. Waiting on Nr.2, tied with van den Berg, is Mark Gray (GBR), winner of the last event here in Treviso in November 2015. He has the same amount of points as van den Berg but will only lose points for 17th place. So he might be a hot favorite to be leading the Euro-Tour rankings after this event, depending on his performance here.

Following the Dynamic Billard Treviso Open, on Saturday morning a women’s Euro-Tour will begin at 09:00. 45 female athletes have enrolled for the event and the winner will be decided after the final match which is scheduled for Sunday, November 29th, at 16:00.

The tournaments will be played on 20 tables of which 12 will be in a livestream. In order to be able to follow all the action LIVE, premium membership can be purchased at www.kozoom.com.
