The sun is awaiting Europe’s pool elite on the Island of Aphrodite

The Dynamic Billard Euro-Tour is having its next stop starting tomorrow. Around 140 players in the Open and 32 players in the Women’s event will come to Kyrenia, North Cyprus, to joust for prize money and valuable ranking points.

Thursday, June 2nd the Dynamic Billard North Cyprus Open Euro-Tour will begin with the first round matches to start at 09:00 local time and the final scheduled for Saturday, June 4th, 18:00. As in every Euro-Tour event, 34.000,- € prize money are at stake with 3.500,-€ going to the winner alone. A special feature in the setup here is the beautiful location of the venue, the Acapulco Hotel, Spa & Casino holiday resort. Located on the northern coast of sunny Cyprus, the weather is very much enjoyable during most time of the year. Players are currently pouring in from all over Europe and get ready for action but also enjoy the sunny beaches and pools of the Acapulco resort. Special attention in the field could be paid to players like Mika Immonen (FIN) and Jayson Shaw (SCO) who actually reside in the United States but are looking for ranking points in order to get a shot at Europe’s Mosconi Cup team.
