“I am overwhelmed”

Thursday, 06 October 2011: Dominic Jentsch (GER) wins the Beassy™ 8-Ball World's Top Gun 2011 with an 8:4 victory over Konstantin Stepanov (RUS) in the final match.
Stepanov committed some avoidable mistakes in the first racks and allowed Jentsch to take a 3:0 lead over him. Then he fought back and equalized the score at 3:3. At that point in time, the match looked like turning over in Stepanov's favour. But Jentsch played his A-game consequently and did not leave any chances for Stepanov to overtake him. To the opposite, Stepanov played some bad shots and had the weaker break than Jentsch. The German dominated the match and won it with a clear 8:4 result in the end.

“I am overwhelmed to have won this tournament here”, stated Jentsch after the match, “I had a bad roll for quite some time and it feels so good to be back again”. “I think I have played on a high level constantly in the final”, said Jentsch when asked about the final. “Though the score seems quite clear, I was the lucky winner in the end.” “My private turning point in this tournament was the 8:7 victory over Andreas Roschkowsky”. “I would like to thank the organizer Beassy, Beatrix Dobossy and the EPBF for this event. Everything here was so perfect and well organized, it was a privilege to be here and participate in the three events.”
