Drago clearly overmasters Belka

Tony Drago

In a speedy match, "The Tornado" Tony Drago (MLT) sent Jakob Belka (GER) to the loser's side with 9:4.

Drago was the player to draw first blood in the match. Performing as his fans love him, he hurried around the table in a speed that is second to none. Additionally to his great pocketing skills, in this match Drago also performed a good break shot. Whenever Drago had a good layout, he ran the table. Belka's only chance to get his points was to win his own break shots. But he made too many mistakes. While Drago only missed one straight shot, Belka made several errors and consequently, Drago punished him for it. Belka never got a foot in the door. He was not able to show the same performance as he did when he defeated Nick van den Berg 9:8. Maybe, Drago did not allow him to get going at all...

Other notable results include youngster Tobias Bongers (GER) winning with 9:6 over Nick Malai (ALB). On the loser's side, Karlo Dalmatin (CRO) terminated all hopes of Jim Chawki (SWE) with 9:6.
