Chamat over Babica in Euro 10-Ball Championship

Marcus Chamat

Wednesday, March 30, 2011: Today at 13:45 local time, Marcus Chamat (SWE) and Radoslaw Babica (POL) had an appointment. They faced each other in the first winner's round of the 10-ball competition. Both players have been in the circuit for a long time now and they know each other very well. When asked before the match about Chamat's opponent, Tom Eksell, the Swedish team leader said: “Actually, Marcus did not show his best game yet during the EC. I think that a matchup with a strong player like Radoslaw is good for him. He needs a strong player to get going”. The match started out evenly and the tactical side of the game was emphasized by both players. Chamat was always one or two racks in front of Babica and he also played better. “Marcus made one mistake, Babica made two or three”, Eksell stated. “Therefore, the victory for Marcus is in order”. Chamat won the match 8:5 over Babica.

In another top player's clash, Konstantin Stepanov (RUS) managed to sneak into the next round on the winner's side by barely defeating the new European 8-Ball Champion Dominic Jentsch (GER) 8:7.
