27th October, 2013 PartyPoker World Pool Masters Feijen is the Master! The Final Niels Feijen (HOL) 8-6 Darren Appleton (ENG) Semi-Finals Niels Feijen (HOL) 8-2 Alex Pagulayan Darren Appleton (ENG) 8-4 Chang Jung-lin (TPE) HOLLAND’S NIELS FEIJEN captured the 21st annual PartyPoker World Pool Masters crown as he came through a tense final to defeat England’s Darren Appleton 8-6. It was Feijen’s first victory in an event he has been competing in periodically for ten years and he picks up a $20,000 winner’s cheque. It was consolation for his heart-break defeat in the final of the World Cup of Pool last month when he and his Dutch team mate Nick Van den Berg narrowly went down to the Philippines. “The crowd was cheering hard for Darren. We had both been playing well all week and that is sport, somebody has to lose and somebody has to win. He played really well all week and it could have gone either way. I managed to win and it is a great feeling,” said a thrilled Feijen after […]

get 69 – neues Pool Billard Spiel

Geschrieben von Frank Schimrock get69 ist eine neue und innovative Pool Billard Variante, die fairer und spannender für Spieler und Zuschauer ist. In diesem Spiel geht es darum, als Erstes 69 Punkte zu erreichen. Das Rack wird prinzipiell wie ein 10 Ball Rack aufgebaut und ebenso funktioniert die aufsteigend-nummerische Vorgehensweise. Die Rechenarithmetik ist jedoch eine gänzlich andere, denn in get69 zählt jeder Ball. Für die gelbe Nr.1 gibt es einen Punkt, für die blaue Nr.2, dementsprechend zwei Punkte, bis hin zu der gestreiften Nr.10, für den man, wer hätte es vermutet, ganze 10 Punkte bekommt. Das komplette Rack besteht, dem zugrunde liegend aus 55 Punkten, sodass ein Spieler mehr als eines benötigt, um siegreich zu sein. Die anfangs erwähnte Innovation geht aber weit über das Punktesystem hinaus, so hat bspw. jeder Protagonist für seine erste Aktion nach dem Break, die Option eines Freeballs, welcher genau wie jeder andere Ball angesagt werden muss! Sollte dieser Ball verschossen werden, so werden wir Zeuge eines weiteren Features. In get69 hat man nicht nur nach einem Foul Ball in […]
