Gray and Majid also leave the tournament

Friday, 30 September 2011: Jayson Shaw (SCO) defeated David Alcaide (ESP) in the round of the last 32 with 8:5.

It was amazing to see how equally strong two players can play. Both of them showed high class pool and made only few to no mistakes in the beginning of the match. However, when the score was 5:5, Shaw as well as Alcaide seemed to play a bit too careless. Safety shots were executed worse than normal and it was Jayson Shaw who accepted the gift, taking a 6:5 lead over Alcaide. In the 12th rack, Alcaide missed an easy 1-ball and was punished twice since the cue ball scratched in the side pocket. Shaw ran that rack and also the next one with his own break to win the match with 8:5. In the next round Jayson Shaw will face Philipp Stojanovic (CRO) who eliminated Mark Gray (GBR) from the event with 8:5.

The round of the last 16 players will be played tomorrow, Saturday October 1st, at 10:00 local time.

The Euro-Tour event will be hosted by the European Governing Body for Pool, the European Pocket Billiard Federation (EPBF) and organized by International Billiard Promotion (IBP). For further information and reference please go to the event website, or contact our press office.
