Final Euro-Tour stop in 2018 features another "Crazy Thursday"
Thomas Overbeck (EPBF)
Nov. 14, 2018
Around 09:00 CET tomorrow, the first matches of the Dynamic Billard Treviso Open 2018 will begin. 20 Dynamic III tables are set up on two floors and awaiting the contestants. As many as 174 athletes have enrolled in the open event while 43 women will play the EPBF Treviso Open, starting Saturday. Once again, the venue for the event is the BHR Treviso Hotel in Treviso, Italy.
 
After taking the victory in the recent Euro-Tour event in Klagenfurt, Austria, Mario He (AUT) has closed in on #1 ranked Eklent Kaci (ALB) by 20 points only. Both will lose 330 points from last year’s event in Klagenfurt after this tournament so the duel here in Treviso for the victory of the 2018 Euro-Tour series is on between Kaci and He. Albin Ouschan (AUT), Wiktor Zielinski (POL) and Denis Grabe (EST) only have outsider chances to take the prestigious title. In the current rankings, Mario He is the only player who managed to take two titles throughout the season: Victories in Veldhoven as well as Klagenfurt together with a second place in Treviso late last year took Mario He to the #2 spot in the rankings. Due to his performance at the Euro-Tour this year, Mario He will have his inaugural appearance on the European Mosconi Cup Team in the upcoming December.
 
In the women’s Euro-Tour rankings, all victories of the current season were captured by Jasmin Ouschan (AUT; 3 victories), Kristina Tkach (RUS; 2) and Marharyta Fefilava (BLR; 1). The second places are also shared between the three athletes except three. Though Fefilava „only“ won one event in the current season, she is leading the rankings since she had finished 3-times as runner-up. However, Jasmin Ouschan has a great chance to threaten Fefilava’s lead since she will not lose any points after this event. Ouschan missed two events so she will collect a full amount of points here in Treviso while Fefilava loses big time points for her victory last year in Braga, Portugal. The odds are definitely in favour if ouschan and Tkach before this event.
