The next Euro-Tour is about to begin tomorrow. 159 players from over 30 countries have announced for the Dynamic Billard Dutch Open 2016 in The Golden Tulip Jagershorst Hotel, Leende, The Netherlands.
For the third time already, the Euro-Tour stops in the Golden Tulip Jagershorst Hotel in Leende. Though the space is a bit limited and the event can only be played on eleven tables, many players have enrolled for the event as usually when the Euro-Tour comes to The Netherlands.
Since less tables than normally are in use, the event lasts one day longer than usually and the final match will be played on Sunday at 17:30 CET.
As always, valuable points for the European rankings are at stake as well as 34.000,-€ in prize money. The current leader of the rankings, Mark Gray from Great Britain, still has a comfortable lead over 2nd Albin Ouschan from Austria and 3rd Niels Feijen from The Netherlands. However, due to the newly installed European rankings system this situation could dramatically change if Gray does not perform up to his normal level here. The European rankings include also other independent events in the count but the Euro-Tour results are multiplied by two in order to emphasize the meaning and value of the Euro-Tour. It can be assured that Ouschan as well as Feijen and the ones behind them like Petri Makkonen (FIN), David Alcaide (ESP) or Ralf Souquet (GER), just to name a few, are waiting in the wings for any sign of weakness that might be shown by Gray. Excitement and action is guaranteed to happen here in Leende since almost all top European players have enlisted into the event.
The organizers will choose a feature match every day and broadcast ist LIVE through the EPBF Facebook page. Also interviews and other interesting stories are planned.
The Euro-Tour will be played on 11 tables which will all be streamed LIVE throughout the whole event.
