Souquet is in his own class

Clear victory for German Hall of Famer in Cison di Valmarino  

Cison di Valmarino, Italy: Ralf Souquet (GER) took the title at the Dynamic Billard Castel Brando Open in Cison di Valmarino, Italy, with a clear 9:1 victory in the final match over Daniele Corrieri (ITA). The suspense level of the previous rounds could not be kept in the final match. The person who was mostly responsible for that was Ralf Souquet.

His performance in the final match was simply too strong. He overpowered Daniele Corrieri and made it look as if these two players were coming from different worlds. With the precision of a surgeon, „The Kaiser“ performed unbelievably strong after having been absent at the recent two Euro-Tour events. He is a well deserved Champion at this Euro-Tour event. Through his 3rd place, Albin Ouschan (AUT) will take the lead of the Euro-Tour rankings after the event.
