THESSALONIKI - The Dutch team Eekhoorn is the final winner of the Royal Pro International Tournament in Thessaloniki. The team with Frans van Kuyk, Kurt Ceulemans and Jerry Hermans was the better of the Turkish team with Adnan Yüksel in the final match. 36 players participated in the tournament, divided over 21 groups of three players. The tournament, organized by Pavlos Zachariadis, was played in Billiard Center Thessaloniki.

Frans van Kuyk was the strong leader in the winning team in the preliminaries. The Brabant player won his matches 30-2 in 10, 30-5 in 7 and 30-19 in 22 innings. In the final between Van Kuyk and Yüksel, the match was stopped at 39-39, because Jerry Hermans and Kurt Ceulemans were leading the team to a 4-0 advantage. That made Team Eekhoorn unreachable for the opponent. Jerry Hermans won all his matches, Kurt Ceulemans won four matches and lost one.

The teams from Greece (Kokkoris) and Portugal (Rui Costa) were eliminated in the semi-finals.
