Diamond Nine Dynamic Treviso Open Begins Next Week

160 announcements from all over Europe so far

Sunday, 27 November 2011: 160 players from all over Europe have announced so far the Diamond Nine Dynamic Treviso Open, the final tournament of the 2011 series of the EPBF Euro-Tour. Among the participants are 49 of the top 50 ranked players. The only one missing is Dynamic Austrian Open winner Richard Jones who broke his foot. Hopefully he will recover soon and we will see him back on tour in 2012.

The top ranked Euro-Tour players also feature Austrian female super star Jasmin Ouschan. She will go for the gold together with three other female athletes.

The venue is again the BHR Hotel in Treviso. The BHR has already been the host hotel in April this year and the organizer has made the best of experience there. “We are happy to come back to Treviso once more this year”, says Gre Leenders, EPBF President, “the BHR has been a marvellous host and we are looking forward to staging another successful event here in Italy, together with all our partners.”

A total prize fund of over 42.000,-€ is at stake and Europe’s elite players will want to have a say in who will get which piece of the cake.

Furthermore, there are important ranking points to earn which will determine who wins the total rankings in 2011 and who will qualify for which intercontinental tournament and/or World Championship.

The event starts on Thursday, December 1st at 09:00 local time with the final to be played on Saturday, December 3rd, in the late afternoon. Entry for all spectators is free at all times.

The event will be hosted by the European Governing Body for Pool, the European Pocket Billiard Federation (EPBF) and organized by International Billiard Promotion (IBP).
