At the Dynamic European Championships 2012 in the straight pool division, Ruslan Chinakhov (RUS) creamed Dominic Jentsch (GER) with 125:4 in just 4 innings.

The German player never had a chance in the single-sided match. Chinakhov opened the match and played a good safety shot. Then Jentsch played a safety shot himself, leaving a tough long shot at the 4-ball for Chinakhov. The Russian made it and played 92 (!) balls in a row, putting a lot of pressure on Jentsch. When Jentsch came to the table, he found a tough situation for him. He pocketed two balls but scratched with the cue ball. That gave Chinakhov the chance to take a 121:4 lead over Jentsch. The German then tried a bank shot but missed it. Chinakhov ran the remaining balls and deservedly won the match.

Other notable results include Niels Feijen (NED) ousting Murat Ayas (SUI) with 125:-1. 

In the women's division,  defending Champion  Jasmin Ouschan  (AUT) erased Silvia Gaudino (ITA) 75:1. Belgium's hopes of a medal were terminated when Kamila Khodjaeva got beat 69:75 by Katarzyna Wesolowska (POL). 

The event  is hosted by the European Governing Body for Pool, the European Pocket Billiard Federation (EPBF) and organized by International Billiard Promotion (IBP).
