Shane Van Boening (USA) gewinnt US Open 10 Ball Championship 2017 im Finale gegen Warren Kiamco (PHI) mit 11-5. Den 3. Platz belegt Roberto Gomez (PHI). Alex Pagulayan (CAN) gewinnt US Open 8 Ball Championship 2017 im Finale gegen Shane Van Boening (USA) mit 10-9. Den 3. Platz belegt Dennis Orcollo (PHI). Ab dem kommenden Montag, den 17. Juli 2017 finden in Las Vegas die US Open 10 Ball Championship statt. Bis zum darauffolgenden Mittwoch, den 19. Juli 2017 werden viele internationale Top-Spieler um ein Preisgeld von ca. 85.000$ spielen. Im letzten Jahr wurden diese Wettbewerbe noch auf sogenannten Bar Tables (7 Fuß) ausgetragen. Die „kleinen“ Tische sind in den USA sehr beliebt, allerdings kann man z.B. in Europa mit dieser Tischgröße nicht viel anfangen. Dadurch sind die US Open 8 Ball und 10 Ball im Jahr 2016 ein wenig untergegangen. In diesem Jahr hat der Veranstalter CueSports International beschlossen während der laufenden nationalen US Meisterschaft wieder auf die 9 Fuß Tische zu wechseln. Eine gute Entscheidung wie wir finden. Die US Open 8 Ball […]
