Roschkowsky comes up with perfect match

The Dynamic Billard European Championships have commenced with the straight pool competition and Andreas Roschkowsky (GER) left a clear mark in terms of going for the title. He won his first round match over Marek Hajdovsky (CZE) in 45 minutes winning 100:0, using only one inning! That is the ultimate start for Roschkowsky and he is definitely a name on the list of the favorites for the title.

Other remarkable first round results include Mateusz Sniegocki (POL) winning with 100:69 over Ruslan Chinakhov (RUS). In the winner’s qualification round of men’s straight pool, the winner of the recent Euro-Tour in Italy, Mieszko Fortunski (POL) lost 55:100 to Mats Schjetne (NOR).
