Correia and Wessel wear the 10-ball crown
The Dynamic European Championships – Youth, Seniors & Ladies
Portoroz, Slovenia – 1-16 aug 2014
Henrique Correia (POR) and Susanne Wessel (GER) won the 10-ball competition of the 2014 Dynamic Billard European Championships for seniors and ladies in Hotel Bernadin Resort, Portoroz, Slovenia.
Correia already took the silver medal in straight pool yesterday. Today, he wanted more. He felt it coming his way today. „My opponents need to play better if they want to beat me“, said likable Correia with a smile after the final match. He had just defeated Vegar Kristiansen (NOR) with 7:5. The final match was a close affair with Correia showing the better nerves in the end. After 5:5, he took two more racks for the victory. Kristiansen won the Gold Medal. The Bronze Medals went to Dino Cerimagic (BIH) and Jesse Thehu (NED).
In the ladies division, Susanne Wessel now holds all three titles for two days. Two from last year and the 10-ball from today. In the final match, Wessel defeated defending Champion Barbara Bolfelli with 5:3. Things looked like a walk in the park for Wessel. After five racks she was ahead with 4:1. But then Bolfelli got in gear and pulled back rack after rack. At 3:4, Bolfelli dogged the 10-ball big time. Wessel said thank you and pocketed the final ball for her 10-ball title 2014. Tied for third place are Cristina Moscetti (ITA) and Karin Michl (GER).
The medal table displays Germany in the lead after two events, followed by Portugal and Italy.
