In the Under 17 category of the Dynamic Billard European Championships Youth at the Alpina Sports & Wellness Hotel in St. Johann i.Pg, Austria, defending Champion Daniel Maciol (POL) is on his way in the straight pool competition. Three consecutive wins over Mustafa Alnar (TNC) 75:35, Andreas-Steen Bonnelykke (NOR) 75:20 and Kamil Szasor (POL) 75:61 put him in his spot in the quarter-final against Tony Da Costa (FRA). Maciol played rock solid pool and the only real challenge for him today was his teammate Szasor who managed to oust last year’s runner-up Jan Van Lierop (NED) in the round of the last 32 players with 75:66.
