Straight Pool finals decided in Brandenburg a.d.Havel

Saturday, 28 July 2012:
The final matches have been played in the Straight Pool
competition. Finn Eschment and Raphael Wahl (both GER) have taken the Gold Medals.

The match in the junior's division was pretty one-sided. Eschment played the highest run of the tournament so far. He was leading 13:5 in the third inning. The fourth inning was 95:5. Eschment ran 82 balls. The next inning was the final one. Wolf had no answer to that and Eschment seized the crown off him, winning 100:5.

In the pupil's division, the match was more exciting. Wahl took a 73: 13 lead over Filler and it looked like the match would be over soon. But Filler struck back and made the score 66:73. Then, he missed an easy 8-ball with 2 balls remaining on the table. That was just enough for Wahl. He pocketed the two balls and won the crown in the pupil's division.

Tomorrow, the matches will continue at 09:00 CET. The team competition will begin and the 10-ball will also commence.

The event is hosted by the European Governing Body for Pool, the European Pocket
