Cerimagic among top 32 in 9-ball
The Dynamic European Championships – Youth, Seniors & Ladies
Portoroz, Slovenia – 1-16 aug 2014
Dino Cerimagic (BIH) is among the top 32 players in the 9-ball individuals.
Victories over Jesse Thehu (NED) 9:7, Dirk Schwedes (GER) 9:6, Zdenko Lisic (SVK) 9:5 and Robert Gronli (NOR) 9:5 brought Cerimagic in the round of the last 16 players where he faced Henrique Correia (POR). The Portuguese is definitely favored in this match. However, Cerimagic should not be underestimated.
Germany’s Reiner Wirsbitzki ousted Julien Livens (BEL) in the round of the last 32 players with 9:5. Last year’s runner-up Johny van Rijkel (BEL) met Manuel Pereira (POR), another hot favorite in the round of the final 16 players. All those matches were still played late at night.
In the ladies division, Barbara Bolfelli (ITA) defeated defending Champion Susanne Wessel (GER) 5:4 and went into the semi-final match undefeated. She and Anja Hehre (GER) are now waiting for their opponents in the round of the final four players. They will come from the matches between Karin Michl (GER) v Patrizia Ignesti (ITA) and Ann-Sofie Löfgren (SWE) v Susanne Wessel (GER).
Just as last week in the youth Championship, drug testing was performed by the European Pocket Billiard Federation EPBF. Two players were randomly picked and the results will be published as soon as they are known.
Due to delays in the matches today, the time schedule was amended by the EPBF Sports Director Anamaria Matesic (CRO). The finals of the team competition as well as the finals of the 9-ball individuals will be played tomorrow.
