Souquet Out After Two Rounds

Hotel Alpina, host site

Probably the most famous casualty of day 1 of the Dynamic Billard Austrian open in Hotel Alpina, St. Johann, Austria, is BCA Hall of Famer Ralf Souquet (GER). He lost two straight matches against Maksim Dudanets (RUS) with 7:9 and then to completely unheralded Andreas Koukiadakis (GRE) also with 8:9 after being in the lead with 8:4. After having won the last Euro-Tour in Kyrenia, North Cyprus, this is a huge disappointment for the German superstar.


Other notable results from today include Belgium’s Serge Das losing to Dudanets with 8:9 in his first round match. Then, he remained victorious over Michel Bartol from Croatia with the same result. According to the information on Das’ Facebook page, his opponent dogged some important shots during the 17th rack and allowed Das to stay in the tournament.


Another remarkable result was the 9:2 victory of Radoslaw Babica (POL) over Alan Cuartero (PHI). The filipino player came here with team Kuwait to play his first Euro-Tour event. Cuartero can be regarded as one of the better filipino players. Both players had huh respect for one another before the match and they knew they would not get an easy task. However, Babica played rock solid while Cuartero missed shots and also did not get the flow to his game. In the end, Babica played some tough shots while Cuartero missed too many occasions to score. the 9:2 final result for Babica is absolutely justified. Richard Jones (GBR) got the better of Fabio Petroni (ITA) in the first winner’s round and won the match with 9:7. Nr. 1 and 2 ranked players Nick Van Den Berg and Niels Feijen (both NED) have won all their matches so far and seem to be right on track for another good result in this year’s Euro-Tour.


The Euro-Tour event will continue tomorrow morning at 09:00 am local time.
