2022 Dynamic Billard Euro Tour Season Breaks Off On Saturday

This weekend sees the start of the 2022 Euro Tour season with the opening event – the Dynamic Billiard Laško Open – taking place in the beautiful spa town located in central Slovenia. A huge field of 217 players has been announced and the line-up contains many of the greatest names currently operating in European pool.

The host is the luxuriously appointed Hotel Thermana Park and play gets underway on Saturday 26th February, with the tournament’s closing stages playing out on Monday 28th. This is a new time slot for the Tour with the change made to accommodate the new live TV initiative brought in for 2022 and will remain in place throughout the year.

19 of the current Euro Tour Top 20 players will be competing including the likes of Joshua Filler, Eklent Kaci, Francisco Sanchez Ruiz, Wiktor Zielinski and Alexander Kazakis. In addition, there is a swathe of up-and-coming talent at the ready as well as seasoned champions like Chris Melling and Darren Appleton in the field.

In addition to Tour ranking points, the Lasko Open also carries world ranking points for the recently implemented system operated by Matchroom Sport. All-in-all there are plenty of incentives for players to perform this weekend.

As usual the game is 9 ball and players compete in a double-elimination format, playing down to the last 32 competitors, and then single elimination until the finish. All matches are races to 9 racks with alternate break.
