2016 Betfair Mosconi Cup – Europe rout USA

9th December – 2016 Betfair Mosconi Cup Europe 11 – 3 USA Jayson Shaw 5 – 1 Mike Dechaine THE EUROPEANS needed just one match to retain the 2016 Betfair Mosconi Cup as Jayson Shaw had the honour of potting the winning 9 ball as he eased past Mike Dechaine 5-1 to spark wild celebrations at the Alexandra Palace. Team Europe entered the fray carrying a 10-3 lead after dominating the first three days of the competition and they delivered a crushing defeat to an American side that looked out of their depth at times in front of a very vocal 2,000 strong crowd. Shaw, who came into the event on the back of a run of brilliant form, never looked too comfortable over the first three days. However, he came with some terrific shots to banish Dechaine to the sidelines and secure the European’s seventh consecutive victory. A delighted Shaw said, “There were a lot of nerves out there but you have to stay calm and take every ball one at a time. It […]

2016 Betfair Mosconi Cup – Euros continue to dominate

7th December – 2016 Betfair Mosconi Cup Europe 7 – 2 USA Feijen / Gray 5 – 2 Van Boening / Woodward Jayson Shaw 3 – 5 Rodney Morris Ouschan / Appleton 5 – 4 Dechaine / Bergman Mark Gray 5 – 1 Justin Bergman TEAM EUROPE piled the misery on a floundering American side to take a five point lead into the third day of the 2016 Betfair Mosconi Cup at the Alexandra Palace in London. They won three of the four Wednesday night matches to leave the USA a mountainous task if they are to win the Mosconi Cup for the first time in eight years. European captain Marcus Chamat was in no doubt as to how the day had gone; “What can you say, I thought today I would relax, watch some games, but it is very hard not to get involved in every game – the games are so tough and my players are playing so good so I am over the moon, and especially with a score like this. “The […]

Even after just one day they face a mammoth task against a European side that looked confident throughout. Commented European captain Marcus Chamat, “The first day is always really tough. The way they put out their team, they came with their strongest but I feel there are no weak links in my team and whatever I came out with today, I had four aces. […]

Kleines Wunder… Mosconi Cup 2016 Live und Deutsch kommentiert!

geschrieben von Andreas Huber Es ist also tatsächlich passiert – fast pünktlich zu Weihnachten: Billard kommt wieder live und mit Deutschen Kommentaren in professionellem Format über den Äther !!! Gut – der Äther ist kein öffentlicher Fernsehsender – aber das sollten inzwischen alle Beteiligten verstanden haben – ins Fernsehen führt für unsere Sportart derzeit einfach kein Weg… Umso mehr hat es mich gefreut, als der neue Streaming-Dienst DAZN („da zone“) vor einiger Zeit angefangen hat, die Beteiligten der früheren Sport1-Übertragungen zu kontaktieren. Dabei wurde in Aussicht gestellt, die Matchroom-Events ins Produkt-Portfolio von DAZN aufzunehmen und alle Events live mit Deutschen Kommentatoren zu streamen! Seit ein paar Tagen ist es nun offiziell: Der Mosconi-Cup 2016 geht von 06. bis 09.12.2016 täglich ab 18:30 (GMZ) – also 19:30 MEZ – live und mit den Kommentatoren vor Sport1 (Sebastian Bernsdorff und Andreas Huber) in voller Länge auf Sendung!!! Wir kommentieren dabei in München live auf das Signal von Sky England und werden offenbar sogar von der Regie auf der Insel „gesteuert“ – was wir in den Werbebreaks von […]

Mosconi Cup XXIII – Team Europe Confirmed

9th November – 2016 Mosconi Cup Europe team set for Ally Pally fireworks JAYSON SHAW closed out a memorable qualifying campaign for this year’s Mosconi Cup as he won the final event – the Kuwait Open 9 Ball – to win both the Combined and World ranking lists. That gave the US-based Scot his first ever Mosconi Cup start and he will enter the fray on a wave of confidence. With Niels Feijen having taken the Euro ranking list spot, it meant that the final automatic berth on Team Europe reverted to the Combined list, and it was England’s Mark Gray who took it to make his third Mosconi Cup appearance, eight years after his debut in Malta. For his wildcard picks, captain Marcus Chamat went firstly for Austria’s Albin Ouschan who had another stand-out year, winning the World 9 Ball Championship in Qatar. For his final pick, he went for experience, grit and determination with England’s Darren Appleton. Marcus Chamat was delighted with his final line up; “Niels is a World Champion and four-time […]
