Kjoersvik crushed by Majirina in EPC 8-Ball Division

Anna Majirina

Saturday, March 26, 2011: The next surprise can be reported from the women's division. Line Kjoersvik (NOR), who is playing the straight pool final tonight, got crushed by Anna Majirina (RUS) with 6:3. Kjoersvik, who commutes regularly between Europe and USA, can definitely be regarded as one of Europe's top female players. However, in this match she did not have the better end on her side. Though the gap between the players in the match was not really wide, Majirina managed to get a 3:1 lead over Kjoersvik. From then on, she never let the Norwegian overtake her and safely shipped the victory into her account. She will now play Katarzyna Wesolowska from Poland in the next match which will be the winner's qualification round. Kjoersvik will go to the loser's side where she needs three more wins in order to qualify for the single elimination stage.

The next round will feature the straight pool finals of the Men's and the Women's divisions.

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).
