In the seniors division of the Dynamic Billard European Championships for Seniors & Ladies 2019, Jesse Thehu (NED)  won the Gold Medal over Sascha Specchia (SUI) 100-91 in an entertaining final match.
 
Thehu had the better start and the better ending in the match. He ran out and took a huge lead at 93-3 over Specchia. While everybody thought the match would be over soon, Thehu then committed several easy mistakes which brought Specchia back into the match. The Swiss fought his way back into the match and trailed by only one at 92-91 with 9 balls remaining on the table. It was Specchia's turn to make a mistake though and he missed a relatively easy 1-ball in a decisive moment. Thehu made the most of the opportunity and ran the table to win his 2nd European Championship title in Straight Pool.
