Tough matchups in the one-loss side

Friday, 30 September 2011: In an exciting encounter, Juan Carlos Exposito (ESP) defeated Christian Reimering (GER) with 8:6.

It looked like Reimering was completely beside himself in the early part of the match. Nothing seemed to go in is favour and Exposito took a clear advantage from that, taking a 5:0 lead after 30 minutes. Then Reimering suddenly got some momentum. He played what he is expected of and closed that gap a bit, making the score 6:4 in favour of Exposito. Then the Spaniard went on the hill. Reimering managed to snatch another rack from him, but in the 13th rack everything looked like a sure victory for Exposito. However, sometimes things do not happen as you want them to. Exposito dogged a makeable 10-ball, giving a second life to Reimering at 7:6. It was Reimering's break coming up. He did not find an easy layout and finally, Exposito was able to win the deciding rack, winning the match with 8:6 and eliminating Reimering from the Dynamic Euro-Tour 10-ball Hungary Open. Reimering now will have to wait until Sunday when the Beassy™ 9-ball World Class tournament starts.

Other notable results include Dominic Jentsch (GER) winning with 8:4 over Dutch hope Iva Aarts. Oliver Ortmann (GER), who had to suffer a bad first round smackdown, won his match on the loser's side clearly with 8:1 over Steve Leisen (LUX). Leisen tried to battle Ortmann with good safeties in the beginning of the match but Ortmann showed all his class after a while and left no chance for Leisen. Henrik Larsson, wheelchair player from Sweden, ended Christian Franke's (GER) hopes and won his match with 8:6. In an all-Russian clash, Ruslan Chinakhov eliminated Konstantin Stepanov with 8:4.
