No challenge for Euro-Tour’s Nr.1

Albin Oushcan (AUT)

St. Johann, Austria: In his first match of the Dynamic Billard Austrian Open 2013, Nr. 1 ranked player Albin Ouschan (AUT) outclasses Krzysztof Wrobel (POL) with 9:1.

In Formula One, this would have counted as a "start-to-finish" victory. Ouschan dominated the match from the very beginning. He did not even have to come up with his A-game. After ten racks, the clear result was 9:1 to the Austrian local hero. The key to success for Ouschan's victory was obviously his break shot and the way he controlled his nerves at the table. While Wrobel seemed to struggle with that, Ouschan played as cold as ice. He succeeded to pocket balls in 80% of his break shots while Wrobel only scored 40% there. One could tell the difference in experience between the two contestants. In his next match on the winner's side, Ouschan will take on Marek Kudlik, a teammate of Wrobel. 
Other notable results from the first rounds include Babken Melkonyan (ROM) defeating Hanni Al-Howri (UAE) with 9:6. Christian Reimering (GER) took his first match with 9:5 over Christopher Koba (SWE). After an intense battle, Berk Mehmetcik (TNC) continues his quest on the winner's side having defeated Thomas Knittel (AUT) with 9:8.
