The two newly crowned  European Champions
The two newly crowned
European Champions – Nick van den Berg (NED) and Jasmin Ouschan (AUT)

Katarzyna Wesolowska  (POL)  in  the  final  with  75:15. The  match  is   perfectly  portrayed  by  that result.  Wesolowska  had  no  chance  against Ouschan  at  any  time  of  the  match.  Already from  the  very  beginning,  Jasmin demonstrated  her  supremacy.  Her intermediate  lead  over  Wesolowska  was 52:-1 !  Though Wesolowska  made  a rack  to get  to 15 points, she knew that Ouschan was way  too  good  for  her.  In  the  end,  75:15  was  the  just  result  for  a  deserved Champion. „I am so happy  to have achieved the title in the first discipline“, said Ouschan  after the match.  „Straight  pool means a lot  to  me,  I  really  appreciate the game and I  could not  get  that  title last  year. That  bothered  me  a lot  so I’m happy to be back“ she added. In  the men’s division,  Nick  van  den Berg creamed Tomasz  Kaplan (POL) 125:1.  Like  in  the  women’s  event,  the  result  also  displays  the  course  of  the match.  Though  van  den  Berg  received  a  3-foul-penalty  and  got  15  points deducted,  he  achieved this clear and broad  result  over  Kaplan.  Van den Berg was superior in every  aspect, pocketing balls and tactical play. He played like a real  champion  and  also  did  not  fail  when  tough  shots  were  longing  for  good nerves  and  a  solid  performance.  „It  is  great  to  defend  your  title  and  win  the discipline two years in  a row“,  stated van den  Berg,  „for  us ‚Dutchies‘ a  medal means a  lot.  We  get  governmental  support  once  we  achieve  it.  I  did  that  by making it to the semi-finals. From  then on, I could play without any pressure and just shot my game“.
The  Dynamic  Billard  European  Championships   will  continue  on  Friday morning at 09:00 CET with the 10-ball competition.
