2016 WPA World 9 Ball Championship

Albin Ouschan (AUT) gewinnt 2016 WPA World 9 Ball Championship im Finale gegen Shane Van Boening (USA) mit 13-6. Den 3. Platz belegen Alex Pagulayan (CAN) und Hsuan Yu-Cheng (TPE). Am nächsten Montag, den 25. Juli 2016 starten in Doha/Katar die WPA 9 Ball Weltmeisterschaften. Dieser Titel ist nach wie vor der wichtigste im Welt Pool Billard und für jeden Spieler die größte Herausforderung. Nicht nur das extrem starke Teilnehmerfeld, sondern auch die besonderen Umstände tragen dazu bei. Die hohen Außentemperaturen und der stark klimatisierte Spielort, der Al Arabi Sports Club, sind für viele Spieler kaum zu beherrschen. Im letzten Jahr gewann Ko Pin-Yi aus Taiwan diesen Titel im Finale gegen Shane Van Boening aus den USA. Im Finale 2015 wurde erneut deutlich das leider nicht immer der bessere Spieler gewinnt. Shane Van Boening spielte ein überragendes Turnier und dominierte selbst die stärksten Konkurrenten nach Belieben. Im Finale spielte Shane Van Boening, der wohl beste Spieler der Welt, ebenfalls fehlerfrei und unterlag am Ende mit 11-13. Im Laufe des Finals streute Ko Pin-Yi einige unerwartete […]

Ab morgen findet in Guilin/China die Pool Billard 9 Ball Weltmeisterschaft der Damen statt. Die 2015 WPA Women’s World 9 Ball Championship geht bis zum nächsten Sonntag, den 08. November 2015 und diese Weltmeisterschaft gehört zu den Top Pool Billard Veranstaltungen des gesamten Jahres. Leider ist es auch in diesem Jahr erneut kaum möglich, trotz intensiver Bemühungen, an Informationen zu kommen. Wie so oft machen unsere chinesischen Freunde auch aus einem Pool Billard Turnier ein Staatsgeheimnis 😉 wir werden das in Zukunft auch gerne so akzeptieren, aber deshalb auch nicht mehr bereit sein alle Fakten, Links, Informationen etc. in mühsamer Kleinarbeit zusammenzutragen. Deshalb verzichten wir an dieser Stelle auf einen ausführlichen Artikel und können leider nur einige Fakten präsentieren. Sollten in den nächsten Tagen noch Informationen eintrudeln, werden die hier in den Links zu finden sein. Spielort: Guilin Museum in Guilin/China Wann: 02.-08. November 2015 […]

Ko Becomes Pool’s Hardcore Man

Taiwan’s Ko Pin Yi wins his first World 9-ball Championship with a gritty 13-11 win over the USA’s Shane Van Boening Final Day Report from the 2015 World 9-ball Championship by Ted Lerner – WPA Press Officer Photos Courtesy Richard Walker & WPA (Doha, Qatar)–Showing why he is not only one of pool’s most talented performers, but perhaps its most hardcore player as well, Taiwan’s Ko Pin Yi captured his first World 9-ball Championship tonight in Doha, trading blows with the USA’s Shane Van Boening for two and a half hours before pulling away in crunch time to win 13-11. Both players put in gritty, high quality performances, with brilliant shot making under pressure, coupled with just a handful of errors from both superstars. The outcome was in doubt right down to the dramatic end, but it was Ko who seemed to will himself over the finish line for the historic win. The win is the 26 year old Ko’s second world championship this year, after capturing the 10-ball world title in the Philippines back […]

Pool’s Best Get Ready To Run The Gauntlet

With the field at the 2015 World 9-ball Championship now down to the final 32, it’s clear that the sprint to the finish line is anyone’s game. Day 5 Report from the 2015 World 9-ball Championship by Ted Lerner – WPA Press Officer Photos Courtesy Richard Walker & WPA (Doha, Qatar)— So you want to be the champion of the world? Well good because now comes the hard part. After a day of weeding out the pretenders from the contenders at the Al Arabi Sports Club, and with the field having been halved from 64 to 32 players, the 2015 World 9-ball Championship is now headed for what will surely be a dramatic climax over the next two days. Thursday promises to offer up enough drama, nerves and memorable pool to last many years as anyone who has designs on 9-ball’s biggest prize will be put through the meat grinder, with the field being whittled down to just four players at the end of the day’s play. The group of 32 remaining players offers pool […]

It’s Knockouts For The New Guys

Saudi Arabia’s Abdulrahman Al Amar leads a crop of surprising players who have booked their spots in the Final 64 of the World 9-ball Championship Day 3 Report from the 2015 World 9-ball Championship by Ted Lerner – WPA Press Officer Photos Courtesy Richard Walker & WPA (Doha, Qatar)–If the results of Day 3 at the 2015 World 9-ball Championship are any indication, change in the sport of pool is most definitely in the air. Today’s three sessions were given over to all winners’ side matches in the 16 groups with 32 spots available in the coveted single elimination round of 64, which begins on Wednesday. Losers in Monday’s matches knew they’d be given another chance to advance on Tuesday so the brutal pressure of judgement day, where every match is do-or-die, wasn’t quite as bad. Still, five former World 9-ball champions and the current defending champion all had chances to advance today. All lost and will have to come back again for one final go on Tuesday. It was an excellent day for the […]

From Singapore, With Serious Talent

Singapore’s Aloisius Yapp arrives on pool’s biggest stage with a dominating win over England’s Darren Appleton on day 2 at the World 9-ball Championship Day 2 Report from the 2015 World 9-ball Championship by Ted Lerner – WPA Press Officer Photos Courtesy Richard Walker (Doha, Qatar)— Each year at the World 9-ball Championship seems to bring pool fans a revelation, a new talent who makes his mark on the scene with such aplomb and style that you just know that big time success is surely in this young man’s future. This year in Doha it only took until the beginning of day 2 for one such player to arrive. Singapore’s 19 year old Aloisius Yapp has been on the international scene for about a handful of years, but was never really noted for much more than an interesting sounding name. Then late in 2014 the teenager pulled off his biggest success to date; capturing the WPA World Junior 9-ball Championship in Shanghai. Still, while winning the junior world title is quite the accomplishment, it’s a […]
